Today there are many varieties of illegal drugs that are being abused in our society with deadly consequences. These drugs include marijuana, meth, heroine, prescription drugs, and many more.
Each drug will have different properties that induce various states of mind in the user, and many drug users will have a preferred drug or “drug of choice” which they will habitually consume.
There are many reasons why people turn to drugs, but with enough time and frequency the user will develop a tolerance for the drug – meaning they require more and more to achieve the same “high” or altered state of mind, and they will develop a physiological addiction whereby their bodies actually require the drug to function normally. Once a user progresses to this stage they are no longer consuming the drug solely for recreational reasons, but to feel “normal” instead.
