Illegal and Legal Drug Usage in the United States
How bad is the illegal drug problem here in the US? Very bad and it alters the brain's thought process and causes a problem with human interaction and our natural socializing tendencies. The drugs are so diverse and so plentiful that it touches the lives of nearly every American in some way and certainly nearly every family in this country. We must be honest with ourselves. We have legal drugs, prescription drugs and illegal drugs. Caffeine is a drug that is wide spread in America. The verdict is out now, but what will we learn in the future after twenty years? After all there is a Starbucks on nearly every corner in many of America's largest metropolitan areas. We already know that spiders cannot spin a web while under influence of caffeine.
What is Caffeine content in your life? Ask for yourself, look in that mirror and then take a look at the world around you. No wonder people cut you off in traffic, they are in a mad tear to where? In front of you so they can hurry up and wait. Now it appears that kids are using caffeine to get high? In combination with other drugs; think about this. The "pick me up" that most Americans use to get through the day, wake up in the mourning is penetrating other parts of society. Why? Why would this happen? Well here are some interesting stories of kids using caffeine to get a rush.
There is much more on Blogs across the Internet, "google" it sometime and see what you come up with. We have kids taking crystal meth and killing their bodies and becoming very horrible workers as far a responsibility and work ethic go, and when they cannot keep a job and have no money to buy drugs they are trying to duplicate some sort of experience using caffeine. Wow, this is a problem really. Think of all the mood altering drugs being used Prozac one-way, caffeine the other, and all the illegal stuff in between. How is the human brain suppose to operate efficiently and develop normally with all this foreign content and the extreme ratios? Maybe some people ought to figure out a way to reduce this desire for mood enhancement?
There is much information on the Internet about this and perhaps we, as a society should be doing something to help people think about what they are doing to themselves? And to find a reason to live life to it's fullest without a mood enhancements.
So if we are to have caffeine as a way of life we ought to let people know that the caffeine buzz that kids are trying to get from using it is not all that great.
Now this maybe a better stimulate over all to other drugs, but no drugs is the better solution. It would be better for the productivity of America, better for kids and better for long-term health. Think about it.
