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.
