There are many illegal drugs that are being abused by our society
today. Drugs such as marijuana, meth, and the abuse of prescription
medications are on the rise. It is important for everyone to raise their
level of awareness in order to reduce the risk of drug abuse or to help
someone they care for who is already suffering from drug abuse or
Marijuana is by far the most widely used illegal drug. It is derived from the cannabis plant, which grows in many countries. People put it in rolling papers to make marijuana cigarettes, smoke it in bongs or pipes, or mix it in baked goods or tea and eat or drink it. Marijuana is a Schedule I drug. It is illegal to grow, sell, buy or use marijuana, hashish or hashish oil. Synthetic THC capsules are available by prescription to treat the nausea that cancer patients sometimes suffer with some forms of chemotherapy, and to treat wasting in AIDS patients. No form of the smoked drug has been approved as safe or effective for any medical use.
Cocaine and crack cocaine come from the leaves of the coca plant which
grows primarily in South America. Cocaine is processed into a white powder
which people snort or melt and inject. Crack is further processed into a
substance that can be smoked. Cocaine is a Schedule II controlled
substance. It is illegal to grow, process, sell or use cocaine or crack.
Cocaine has limited use in medicine as an anaesthetic.
Meth is a powerfully addictive stimulant that dramatically affects the central nervous system. The drug is made easily in clandestine laboratories with relatively inexpensive over-the-counter ingredients. These factors combine to make meth a drug with high potential for widespread abuse.
