Why are drugs considered to be so bad?

why are druggs considered to be soo bad? I mean, shit, it’s not like they all can kill you.

Answer #1

drugs aren’t totally bad since some of them are medicine, but it depends on the drug and wether or not people overdose it

like marajuana is bad for you but a cancer patient should be able to access them since it subdues their pains and like gives them a high feeling ( it must be the best feeling in the world =D) but yeah. xD

Answer #2

well I think that for me il only smoke weed eat mushrooms and drop acid dont know bout you geriann on acid even more than I thought I could handel I was still able to stop myself from doing dumb things and I’ve done a lot coc but stoped that it was relly addictive and smoked black opium and tried x once dont like it but would never even look at meth or crack or pure heroin

Answer #3

I think drugs suk my cuzin tried herion and ecstasy when he was 14 and now hes 36 and cnt let go. xx

Answer #4

lol dont listen to what people tell u, its all misleading information you need to do your own research and see for urself

These are some of the comments I have copied from a forum

-pharmaceuticals are known to kill more people than illegal drugs

-marijuana is the number 1 cash crop in the world it serves as a natural medicine and has many other uses thats why they prohibited it so big companies can make more profit thanks to “bad journalism”

-can also help aids patients, aids diminishes appetite have them smoke a joint and they regain their appetite counteracting the illness

-no one can die from smoking cannabis and has been no known deaths compared to everything else including alcohol, tobacco, etc..

I myself have asthma and smoking opens up my airways making it easier to breathe with no side effects when medically legalized in my state I look foward to becoming a patient for prescription marijuana. 12 states have already legalized it along with other countries in the world and more following my job is to educate people that are not aware of the plants uses


-I did most of my research through websites, books, magazines, and the news norml.org high times magazine etc..

  • theres more to it than just getting high and I believe legalizing it would make this a better world to live in

-God bless the whole crop!

  • and for people that dont smoke, you dont need to smoke it to support it

-all the better reason for the government to legalize.. couple reasons why it should be legalized: -will be removed from black market and stop empowering gang members -medical reasons -would be sold like alcohol, remember alcohol was once prohibited too (in stores away from children, have to be 21+) -would be a law that you cant drive while intoxicated on weed -prison population would lower (prisons are overcrowding with nonviolent offenders) -keep patients from being convicted -would provide millions of jobs for people -would make us an independent country (fuel, etc.., debt free america)

people with an addiction (including hard drugs) shouldnt be thrown in jail, they need help theres more people in jail with mental illnesses than there are in mental institutions

the list goes on

  • the War on Drugs is a failure, its a war on its own people. policies need to be changed we pay billions in taxpayers money to keep the war going and neither side is winning thats just a waste of our tax money I wonder what they do with all that money.. those greedy bastards just sell drugs back onto the street, you can even check urself on that there was a time when there was a cia operation transporting drugs overseas into america the government also provided Rick Ross with plenty of heroin to go around, course making money from it

the truth must be exposed, theyre dirty work must stop!

-Of course we can do something about it, we all just need to unite screw the federal government remember slavery? if no one stood up im pretty sure it would still be going on people were tortured, beaten, killed and thrown in jail but that didnt stop them standing up for their rights eventually slavery was abolished same with alcohol prohibition eventually became re-legalized

  • its like theres some kind of conspiracy going on I sense the government is up to no good and trying to control us. credit cards, money, and now they have chips that can be implanted in skin for uselful reasons but if in the wrong hands well were pretty much fuct they hiding the truth from us its dangerous to be right when the government is wrong they got theyre privacy but we dont. they want to know everything were doing on our leisure time

get up stand up!

  • marijuanas not anti-establishment because its illegal, its illegal because its anti-establishment

Answer #5

Drugs can be an amazing thing.

Just don’t be stupid about it.

Answer #6

peaceofsunshine, I wouldn’t really rate drugs. Yeah, some are more bad for you then others. But overall, drugs are just bad all together. To me they are a despret supplier for low lifes. People do drugs because they have nothing better to do with their time and they think its cool. Not cool at all. People don’t realize the risk they are taking when they do drugs, and a lot of people get in big trouble for it. Anything that is illegal is bad, which includes every drug out there (except perscribed stuff by the doctor obviously) -ѕтәpн♥

Answer #7

They stunt physical growth, cause hormonal imbalance, possible birth defects, emphisyma, brain, heart and liver disorders, not to mention substance abuse and addiction…these are just a few things that can result from using different types of drugs.

Answer #8

“To me they are a despret supplier for low lifes. People do drugs because they have nothing better to do with their time and they think its cool.”

I know a lot of people have worse lives then others, some people use drugs to release mental distress, from problems. I don’t support or reccomend it. I just think it’s unfair to say that to people who further ruin their lives by getting addicted to a drug like cocain or something. These people need proffessional help literally, but some people are afraid or unable to seek that.

On the other hand some kids use drugs just to be cool. It’s fun to be a teenager, but a rebellious attitude isn’t going to get you anywere. Some kids might expierament with sex or drugs.

Answer #9

Technically a drug is anything that alters your body chemisty, so yes, even chocolate is a drug.

But when people talk about drugs, they usually mean stuff that is illegal and harmful… This stuff is usually addictive, I.e. stuff that over time you have increased tolerace to, and stuff that over time your body will go into withdrawl without. Withdrawl, and tolerance are both not good things… Eventually some of these drugs end up destroying some organ or another or end up killing you through overdose…

This does not always happen, and you can argue about legalizing this stuff (personally I think it would stop a lot of people from being exploited), but you cannot argue that the stuff is dangerous and harmful, just like the legal drugs (alcohol and nicotine found in cigarettes…).

Well I hope this answered your question of why drugs are bad…

Answer #10

drugs do a job on a persons’ brain…anything that deals with the mind or brain is dangerous to do…drugs eat your brain cells and one second you are yourself and then another second you believe you are other things like a bird that can fly…thus jumping from ahigh window and falling to your death, they also alter your thinking and you cannot make good judgements…drugs are so dangerous it is like playing russian roulette everytime you do it as to whether or not you will overdose or die or die in an accident or commit suicide..when youstart drugs you are comitting suicide slowly or all of a sudden!

Answer #11

cause of the health risks. some are worse than others though. the only drugs I would NEVER consider taking are herion and LSD. LSD cause I’d have no control over what I saw/did. herion cause it’s seriously addictive.

Answer #12

I know it might not be AS BAD, but alcohol can mess you up, cause serious health risks, and kills brain cells too! So why is alcohol legal, and something like marijuana illegal?

Honestly, I think SOME drugs should be legal; just have certain restrictions for them, just as there is with alcohol.

Answer #13

People have such ignorant misconceptions about drugs today. Drugs are considered to be “so bad” today because that is the view of today’s culture. In the 1900s they put cocaine in over the counter tootache medicine, so you can see how much our views have changed since then. A lot has to do with politics and, of course, money. The government and media have drilled it into our heads that drugs are killers, when in reality they aren’t AS bad as they are claimed to be. If people would take the time to do some research, they might see things in a different light.

Drugs are addictive and cause many problems. It is easy for most people to get carried away with, I will admit. Some people are just weak. That’s what it comes down to.

I’ve done every drug. A good number of times. I did them for experimentation, recreational purposes, interest. Not because I am a lowlife and have nothing “better” to do with my time. I had my share of fun; I’m in college now focusing on my studies and doing very well might I add, and I don’t feel any “stupider” or “dirtier” because of the things I have done. I actually feel more educated and open minded about a lot of things in life. This is not to say you will; drugs are not for everyone. Some people can’t handle them and let them control their lives; you have to know when to stop.

I am encouraging people not to be so biased about things, to read some books on the 60s, South American culture, or on the lives of people in the Netherlands. Then make your judgments. I have friends who’s parents have wasted their lives’ savings on drugs, went to prison for drugs, and have died from drugs. So I know the dire consequences of going overboard. I am just asking people not to be so judgmental of others, as each person is granted their own life to live as they wish.
