    I also want to add another drug to the ones that have been listed. One very powerful and addictive drug and it’s used by a lot of people today and not only is it legal but many find consuming the drug to be harmless. They will claim they are responsible enough to not overdose or cause any serious harm to their bodies, but what happens? when they lose control? I am of course talking about the psychoactive drug caffeine. Who’s with me? We should be teaching responsibility not ignorance!

    DUI doesn’t indicate abuse, but rather a lack of judgement, being over .08BAC is a fairly common thing, it only takes about four beers then getting in a car. the real problem is constant heavy drinking, or constant drug use. occasional drug use can even be beneficial to a person’s mental health as it relieves stress and allows them to enjoy themselves more. the problem is when the use of drugs? starts negatively impacting other areas of their life, that’s when they need help, not jail.

    You said something that I must correct you on WHY ASSUME THEY ARE BAD? This is part of the stigma and a reason why you don’t understand them and another reason why 12 step treatment and religion don’t work in helping someone overcome substance abuse. ? Sometimes, people are just hurting inside and don’t have the skills to cope–It doesn’t mean they are all morally flawed.

  • schlegelt says:

    If you can’t take drugs and continue to create a good life, you are weak. If? you’re weak, chances are you wouldn’t have a very fulfilling life anyways.

  • SparkPlugMovies1 says:

    @dkgentry1 there is a 2 sided story to drugs and the use of drugs i have experienced? all sorts of drugs but the bad thing is is that i experienced them starting at age 13, there are things that can be experienced throughout life but no substance should be taken as a road, but as a bridge. what i mean by that is its ok to smoke pot or try shrooms a couple times but not all the time. you only have one life to live make the best out of it. because once you die its all over.
