Do you have a friend/family member involved with drugs? Has it affected other people around them? It is clear that drugs can be positive and harmful because they can help as medicine or they can hurt people because they overdose.
To begin, drugs are beneficial because they can help people medically. For example, if people have headaches they can take aspirin which is a drug but it helps them not have headaches .To indicate that drugs are positive, in the article “6 Party Drugs That May Have Health Benefits” by Marc Lallanilla he illustrates that party drugs can have health benefits. Lallanilla is a credible source because he is a science writer and he has a master’s degree at Berkeley and University of Texas. Lallanilla uses the most well known drug “marijuana” as an example. He states, “The drug has been shown through years of scientific research to relieve chronic pain, prevent PTSD, stimulate appetite for people with AIDS wasting. Syndrome, control nausea, and etc.” Drugs can be used to calm all these things down and help support a person back onto their feet when they’re having trouble, but that is just taking a small bite of the full cake. All those are problems can be treated with other medications or without medication. Furthermore drugs can be positive because it helps people not have stress and get relief from pain.
However drugs can also hurt people. Another example on why drugs create an unhealthy lifestyle is because people can exceed the amount of dosage and overdose making them unhealthy. In the article, International Overdose Awareness Day powered by Piktochart it informs the readers about drug overdoses. This source is credible because the website gives out the sources they used to write about in their web page and The International Overdose Awareness Day is also trying to promote awareness about overdose worldwide. It reads, “In the U.S 43,982 people die every year from drug overdose and an average about 120 deaths per day” (International Overdose Awareness Day). This statistic is indicating how many people are dying because of drugs. This is a big number it makes one wonder why people overdose on drugs. It also makes me wonder why people are using drugs and not using them for medicine. In conclusion drugs are unacceptable because people get killed for overdosing on drugs.
In conclusion, drugs can help people live because it helps people get treatment and helps them when they get sick or when they have a headache. On the other hand, it’s best to stay away from drugs and for the people around each other to stay away because people can overdose and harm themselves or others. In the end, people should learn to take on a healthier lifestyle to become a role model for the younger kids around the community to not abuse drugs and only use them medically and intelligently.
