People who give their money to welfare want to see the money be put to proper use. This task is nearly impossible while they’re drugs involved.

Profit and money are the driving factors behind so many things, that people are not very motivated to eradicate something that earns them billions of dollars.

I think the narcan medication is an amazing invention for people who overdose on heroine. Narcan is a drug that can treat narcotic overdose in an emergency situation. I 'm very glad they found something that can save many lives when they overdose. I like the idea of narcan because it saves lives, helps families, and if someone doesn 't have heroine in their body it doesn 't hurt them in any way. In my opinion there is nothing bad about Narcan other than that it doesn 't always work depending on how long it 's been since the person has over dosed.
SMOKING AND ITS EFFECTS Convincing someone to quit smoking is a challenge even if we lay cards on the table and tell them of the negative effects it can cause their body. It is after all like a drug, once you pop you can’t stop. Not only is smoking linked to cancer, lung problems and heart disease, it is the most preventable cause of morbidity and is responsible for the three million and more deaths every year around the world.

It is most dangerous for children under the age of 5 because of smoke sometimes they cannot take the breath and they die.

Legalizing marijuana WILL improve one’s economy. This is because the government won’t have to spend money on building jails and treatments for marijuana use. However, without punishments, how will one learn what’s right and what’s wrong?

Tobacco is known to be a killer of humans for many years, like Cancer, HIV, and other diseases. The world is still trying its best to fight the above disease in order not to kill the people. At the same time, especially the developed nations pour their millions of dollars to eradicate this disease not to kill their citizens. While the world agrees that other diseases should be eliminated, there is still debate about tobacco. Questions remain about whether people should be allowed to use tobacco if it is their choice, since it seems like giving people the ability to harm themselves.
Many people do not realize that opioids do not only affect the consumers, they also affect the families and friends. It is a hard thing to overcome and often people forget to realize that it affects more than just the person using the drug. Personally, I 've seen how even the strongest person can be taken down. Just a simple night out with some friends can start a whole new addiction and destroy a future but at the same time create a motive to start a new one.

EpiPen With the recent price increase for the life saving EpiPen many families are being forced to either pay the absurd amount for the drug or to risk their safety and go without one.
