Unit 1 Short Paper Psychoactive Drugs I believe was designed to be used for medical purposes, which I also fee that people who use them are in danger of harming their body and mind. According to news briefs People like Michael Jackson and Jerald Levert also others known people have abused drugs for what reason I can only guess for depression or the stress of being celebrity.

Whatever the reasons were they are no longer living due to the drug abuse, so I can only imagine the people who are not famous who are abusing drugs that we don’t hear about or read about but we know they are out there and in need of help especially the ones that are among the living. The drugs that I fear the most that are causing so many problems are alcohol, methamphetamines, Amphetamines, which include oxycontin which has become so popular on the street . Is there an addiction worst than any other addiction ?

I don’t think so I feel all addictions are a problem, but I have heard that the crack cocaine is worst addiction to ever surface. Recreational drugs is illegal not really but they do effect the mind and the body then they should be illegal anything more than normal use in excessive use is illegal or done for the purpose of abuse should be illegal. A heron junkie is not lower than a person that consumes marijuana to me. Any addiction is bad and heron users also have made bad choices just as the marijuana user has to me.

There are a lot of major substance abuse that I am not familiar with like ecstasy tabs, LSD which I heard about matter of fact I am not familiar with a lot of drug abuse but has been affected by marijuana users, prescription drugs, and crack cocaine. Compulsive disorders is addictive any thing done excessive is a disorder or a behavior problems that the person that is doing them should receive help. Shopping, over eating, gambling, etc. all should be looked on as an addiction.
