Drugs are never right!

More by this author
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?

Petition to stop privileged people with no experience with drugs, drug addiction, or circumstances that come into play from ever speaking about the topic. Yes, we've all seen the "this is your brain on heroin" commercials.

I agree. Non violent drug offenders make up an absurd chunk of our prison population. It's is time for reform.

we would have more crime, not less. People will do drugs no matter what, and no matter how hard it is to get it.

I had a dream to make my own organization, nevertheless I did not have got enough amount of money to do that. Thank God my close mate proposed to use the business loans. So I used the collateral loan and realized my old dream.

@sally sunshine, then you are keeping people from making their own choices. Not all drugs are bad.

annalena224 points out the obvious flaw with this article yet at th same time I can see where you're coming from but you really must show some empathy when writing an article so opinionated

i feel that the reason most people turn to drugs is for personal issues such as depression, sadness, anxiety or peer pressure so the reasons need to be fixed so that the people dont turn to drugs.

Saying that drugs are always wrong is a completely incorrect statement. If you've ever had any kind of medicine for a headache or the flu, you've had drugs.


I also assume from what you've said that you know nothing about the mentally ill, who are twice as likely to smoke and do drugs as someone without a mental disorder. Please try to put yourself in other people's shoes before going off saying, "DRUGS ARE SO BAD, THERE IS NO EXSCUSE IN THE WORLD FOR EVER DOING DRUGS." It... (more »)

she was talking about DRUG ADDICTS for this matter.. and we all know that if we have taken more than enough of what is needed is the dangerous part.. so maybe you've taken all of those drugs but not to the point where you've become an ADDICT.. and just so you know, in Psychology, we define DRUG ADDICTS as those people who are already mentally disoriented and are capable of doing immoral things such as, rape, murder, arson and so and so forth.. :)))

Okay, I'm not saying that drugs are some fantastic thing to happen to this world. But I have to ask, how many of you have actually sat down and done some serious drugs?
Drugs don't make people dangerous, people make themselves dangerous when they choose certain lifestyles, like joining a gang. But here's the truth, I've smoked mary jane, taken E, dropped some tabs, and ate some shroomies. Guess what? I've never physically hurt anyone because of these things, and ... (more »)
