Am I wrong valeriebelew,but have perscription drugs become the most abused drug other than marajuana
It's the truth even to the point that many Doctors are stealing them.
That's the way it seems. Teens are said to be using them a lot these days as well.
Thanks Mentalist, for the request. To complete a worthy hub, I will have to do some research on this subject. My guess is yes, especially among teens and young people, however, when you consider alcohol, and all other drugs combined, I'm not so sure. Prescription drugs are definitely the hardest to detect, from an addiction perspective, because they are legal, and often prescribed by doctors. Lets just say they are a much bigger problem than can be proven, but let me see what the authorities say about the comparison stats. Thanks again.
I can't speak for the rest of the world, but where I come from one of the biggest problems is prescription drug abuse. It's happening mostly to teens-mid twenties here, but it has become a sad epidemic.

I like to check Hubpages on breaks at work. Now, I can't access my Hub feed because a Hubber chose to write a Hub about drugs, and Hubpages hasn't caught onto it yet. My organization is pretty fair on what it blocks/allows. Usually blocks things about gun violence, cults, and drugs. They also only...

I just stumbled on this story and am really impressed. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/11/2 … 09102.htmlThe story is about Ron Paul's stance that the fed should take a hands off approach to medical marijuana, that it should be down to the states. My only worry is that Obama campaigned...
