Why do the people in this country turn to drugs & alcohol ?
How could we help stop this problem ?
What effects will it have on our children if it does not get under control?
I dunno... maybe because they're so readily available. It's really sad that people think they could find answers in these things.
It could just be that they're awesome...
Ok, I have been watching A LOT of intervention lately and it seem's like a big reason for people to turn to drugs and alcohol is because of abuse when they were younger, either hitting or sexual abuse, not feeling loved by parents, being pushed to hard by parents, being homosexual and feeling not feeling accepted by family. They say Marijuana is a gateway drug but I seriously think that the "gateway" is all the previous mentioned abuse that turns a person to drugs and alcohol.
I think it's disillusionment with post-industrialist society that we were brainwashed into thinking was great way back when we were kids. Now we're grown up. We did our damndest in school, got that college degree, and work our asses off every waking second. It didn't make a damn bit of difference. We're still stuck working some dead end retail job if we're lucky, will probably never marry, and end up dying on the way to the toilet in some dilapidated, neglectful retirement home. If someone wants to spend as much time away from reality as possible, I can't blame him. It just doesn't matter anymore.

I believe the effects of marijuana is not what the government is afriaid of. A study shows that by removing the crop from consumption, a considerable amount of GDP would be affected in the country creating an inbalance with no way to satify filling the gap. European countries have...
