    How Drugs Affect The Body

    Do you ever wonder how drugs affect the body? Why are people that use drugs happy one second and then sad or angry the next? Are prescription drugs really any better for you than the drugs sold on the street? It is important to ask these types of questions in order for us to make choices that can help our bodies rather than harm them. In fact, if you take prescription drugs and have no questions or concerns about them then you probably need to make yourself more aware of your personal health.

    Wouldn’t it be great if the government could close the budget deficit while reducing crime rates? What could be the solution to making America safer? Believe it or not, the decriminalization of illegal drugs could do this and more. When drugs became outlawed, an illegal drug market was set up. There are many very dangerous drugs that are legal, such as alcohol and tobacco, while other drugs are not. As a result of making drugs illegal, much money is spent annually on drug law enforcement. Drug-related crime is a pressing issue that needs to be looked at seriously and decriminalization of drugs

    The legalization of drugs has always been a topic for debate, whether it was during or for campaigns, high school assignments, college or universities in the United States. Because drugs affect people differently everyone has valid points to whether drugs should be legalized or remain illegal in the United States. There are drugs that are legal in some places in the world that remain illegal here in USA, even for medical purposes. But there are drugs that are legal everywhere in the world.

    An Unenforceable Prohibition

    The prohibition of drugs in America has ironically done more harm to our nation than the “criminals” using them. When it comes down to it, the war on drugs indirectly promotes crime, and until some realistic action is taken, it will always remain an unenforceable prohibition. Mark Bowden quotes David Simon in his article titled, “In our war zone, an impossible job”, stating that “an unenforceable prohibition (of drugs) has created great absurdity.” This great absurdity is simply a good idea gone sour, just like the alcohol prohibition in the 1920’s for example.

That is the equivalent of 255 small cars (weighing 1000kg apiece) in cocaine. Bearing in mind that .25 g is a “hit” of cocaine, 255 metric tons represents the startling fact that worldwide there were 1.02 trillion “hits” produced in 2005.
