Why drugs are bad?

Drug Facts


In order to understand how drugs affect you, you must understand what drugs actually are. I am sure there are a lot of people that know this, but I just want to share my viewpoints on drugs and what they do.

In general, drugs alter the chemical state of a person’s body and mind. Drugs can be categorized in three groups.

Medicines: As drugs change the chemical state of your body and/or mind, when you feel sick you are given some drugs by your doctor to try and force balance the chemical imbalance in your body to get you better.

Legal addictive drugs: Alcohol and tobacco are harmful yet legal in North America. They can and do with time and use cause damage to your body and mind.

Illegal addictive drugs: There are many drugs which fall into these categories.
