The level of drug abuse in the US has increased a lot hence leading to the creation of whether some drugs should be legalized in the country or not. The common notion of drug abuse is that it leads to negative impacts in the body and thinking of the person involved. As a result, it can be argued out that drug abuse is harmful to human beings and should be avoided at all cost despite the fact some people still think that drug abuse is harmless.
One of the main reasons as to why drug abuse should be dealt with accordingly is that it results to the destruction of the brain cells of the user. As a result, this could lead to serious medical disorders and cancer which impair the daily thinking of that individual. In turn, they end up wasted to a point whereby they can operate without the use of such drugs hence resulting to a confinement in rehabilitation centers or hospitals for the mentally ill. Research shows that the most affected population is the youth and this leads into wastage of their most important age in their lives which could have been used in career development.
In addition, drug abuse is harmful because it promotes the spreading of harmful diseases through drugs that have to be injected directly in the body. In most cases, the abusers find themselves in a situation of sharing the same injection to get the drugs in their body. Among the disease transmitted could be HIV/AID and this leads to a permanent change in an individual’s life.
Drug abuse is harmful because to the entire society because it reduces the number of individuals who could have played important roles in building of the society. As well, most of the drug abusers turn into criminals in an attempt to look for money that they would use to buy the drugs. This threatens the society because such criminal activities involve murder and sometimes rape. Hence drug abuse is harmful.
On the other hand, it can be argued out that drug abuse is not harmful because and people use them in order to feel good and have fun. As a result of this argument, some people are advocating for the legalization of particular drugs such as weed claiming that such drugs will result to a reduction in the levels of criminal activities. Most people go to jail after being convicted for the possession of illegal drugs. This means that their lives end up being wasted in jail instead of doing constructive things that will lead to the creation of a bright future. Therefore, drug abuse is not harmful and given the permission, people would realize the need to take limited amounts of the drugs.
Concisely, the harmful effects of drug abuse out do the harmless effects. Therefore, it becomes the obligation of the society to come up with ways that aid in the reduction in the levels of drug abuse in order to help in the process of saving the youth since they will be tomorrow’s leaders. Among such ways is the development of rehabilitation centers to aid in cancelling drug abusers and talk them out of drug abuse. As well, the development of youth projects would keep them busy hence reducing their chances of abusing drugs. Hence, drug abuse causes more harm than good.
In society we face a number of problems. We face many different problems from ocean to ocean, but the problem that causes the most problems these days are drugs. With drugs come many different problems. Drugs cause bad decision making, committing crime, and gets people very addicted to bad habits.
Drugs in the present day are causing people to make bad choices and bad decisions. Drugs aren’t necessarily making people do things that aren’t right, but make it so that people don’t think straight. When people don’t think straight they tend to make wrong choices. When people make wrong choices it usually puts people around them in danger, which isn’t good to have citizens endanger ever.
People go simply crazy is awful and sometimes drugs are the reason for going crazy. If you have ever seen the show Cops or anything like that most of the shows are filled with people going crazy and committing crimes. That leads into my next subject, committing crime because drugs. A lot of crimes like robbing, GTA, murder, Suicide, Homicide, DUI, etc., all are horrible things people do while on drugs. If the world was to crack down on drugs there would be a lot less crime and murders. Less crime and so on the world would be a way better place.
Bad habits are the worst thing about drugs. Common bad habits of drugs are skipping school, skipping work, and not paying bills, are just a few common habits caused by drugs. First off skipping school will get you no where, because when you skip a lot school you will get kicked out. Once you’re kicked out you have a slim chance of getting to college. Once college is ruled out then you have a very shy chance of getting a good paying job. Second off skipping work is just going to get you fired and that will look bad on your record if you ever go to get another job. Also then you wouldn’t be able to afford rent, insurance, bills, groceries, the drug itself, and whatever has to be paid. Once that happens you would lose everything that you were paying and paying off.
Imagine a world where there are no drugs what so ever. We wouldn’t have to fear as much about crime. No more worrying about what you chose to try because it wouldn’t drugs in it. No more worries about what kids are doing when parents don’t know where they are. The world would be a better place less crime, less bad decision making, less addicted people, and less whackos in our society. Our world would be drug free! Wouldn’t that be great?
