      Pay attention to a drug ad the next time its on TV, they spend a significant portion of at the end speaking of side effects.  That's not to say drugs are not good for some people though.  However, I think drugs are like social media - I think people "go crazy" with it at times and think know people are being overmedicated.

    Drug is the gift of Evil and the Hell is the place for those who consumes about it. happiness is naturally growing up from the bottom of the heart as we realize that life is wonderful and dare to face worst condition however.

      Without drugs, many people would be in constant pain, and many would simply die! What are you on about?

    IMO

    Drugs were made to save lives. However, people tend to abuse its use. We should never put the blame to these drugs instead focus on how we discipline ourselves to use them accordingly.

    Personally I think drugs make you more relaxed and able to enjoy, either being bored; or more fully aware and appreciative of what you are doing and the things around you. Just my opinion. As long as it's not abused it's got my vote.
    Try legal drugs found in smoke shops if you are afraid of the consequences of real drugs. Doesn't affect your pee test, if you want more info I have some in my hubs.

    Alma, you said that Drugs were made to save lives.and I disagree. This may have been true in the past but today, drugs are made to treat the symptoms. There is no profit in curing a disease. As thaivalentine stated the side effects are often worse than the original problem they are used to treat. Drugs are made to generate profits and if these drugs cause additional problems, that simply means even more drugs and more profits.

    How long has it been since the drug industry cure a disease? The drug companies actually fight anything that shows the ability to cure, or reduce the effects of a disease, that doesn't put money in their pockets. They will spend millions assurring that they have the right to kill as many people as they can in the name of profit. Even asprin regularly kills peope who take it as prescribed. These companies spend millions fighting the legalization of marijuana due to the fact that it helps millions and doesn't kill anyone. The reason for this is that they cannot patent a plant. Their ads always claim that they are working for the betterment of humanity and yet what they are actuallly interested in is the betterment of their bottom line.

    Here's a line you may be familiar with that is approriate here, You shall know them by their works.

    I don't know about you but I would rather die from the disease than die from the mislabelled cure. Keep the pills and I'll keep my weed. In the long run I will be happier, healthier, and more than likely, alive longer than you.
