Being a natural substance, individuals who may have been suffering from chronic pain and have been taking opioids may have developed a form of dependence to the drug. To be on the safe side, these individuals have chosen to use kratom to relieve them from their pain. Kratom as Treatment for Opiate Addiction Those who used kratom may either be opiate dependents or those individuals who are under opiate medication but somehow has developed a dependence on the drug. Believing that kratom use poses lesser health risks than using other medications to treat addiction, kratom has become the drug of choice for some individuals. However, since kratom may not be among the commonly prescribed alternatives by doctors to treat opiate addiction, some individuals may have decided in doing self-medication in the hope that they can be dealing with a much safer substance and that they can completely turn away from taking opioids.
The situation is exaggerated; not everyone who smokes a joint becomes heroin addict and besides the difference addicted people of today will feel would be a helpful hand of the government. Once the effects are known, the educational system is available to teach the young generation about the use of drugs. Thus, the ignorant teenagers going after any drug they can find because of the peer pressure, without knowing the drug's synergy with their illnesses (for example; weed can actually cause schizophrenia on some, ecstasy may cause a stroke), are now transformed into conscious consumers. The peer pressure is also diminished because drugs are no more illegal and thus doing them is not charming. Other regulations may limit the amount giving and the
Another reason as to why the government may not want to legalize such substances because they are probably fixated on the small number of people who use these substances and have bad trips or accidents. Though it is not wrong to consider such outcomes, I think that they should revisit what these drugs could positively do. There are cases where LSD and psilocybin are used medically. In fact, I just read an article that explained how LSD could help with terminally ill patients and alleviate the anxiety of death. All in all, I think the government should reconsider the legalization of LSD especially if it’s in a controlled setting and has a high potential for medical
Is the Science Behind Psychedelic Therapy like Dropping LSD? If psychedelic drugs like LSD and MDMA become legal, the world may become a more colorful place. Would it be dangerous for everyone to be tripping out at the same time? Researchers have suggested that psychedelics are relatively safe when mixed with common daily activities. Well, maybe not driving.
Thank you for an informative paper. What troubles me about methadone treatment is how it is a substitute for another narcotic. It is sad about heroin addicts that do not want to get off their narcotic dependence. However, I do not feel that methadone is the answer because it is replacing one narcotic for another; although they have less craving. The other side to this issue is that methadone death have increased.
The variant lesch Nyhan syndrome: this stage does not involve human behavioral problems or self-mutilation. It is the less severe stage of the syndrome. There is no permanent cure for the neurological defects or crippling symptoms. Allopurinol is a drug that is usually prescribed to lower the risk of gout and can be prescribed to patients with lesch Nyhan syndrome because it can also reduce the level of uric acid in the patient. But it is also possible to improve the quality of life considerably for a boy with the disease.
According to Habeeb Akande, “The more you overthink, the less you will understand.” People believes that drugs are dangerous, so they try not to get involved with drugs, albeit omission. Everyone distanced themselves from drugs because they are horrified, yet superficial understands what narcotics are. Legalizing drug will make people acknowledge the true form of the hazardous substances—understand the reasons to be aware of drugs—and the peaceful method to live with it. With this, civilian will receive more protection including the diminution of crimes, pragmatic regulation, and guaranteed health care. Legalizing drug will help in decreasing the crime rates.
For them drug use is thought to be something that can help them escape worlds harsh realities. But among teenagers and young adults, mental illness is not the biggest reason why they get into drug addiction. These types of people take drugs because they think that it will help them fit in. Teenagers when hanging out with friends who drink or do drugs, it is very likely that the person
However, alcohol was never used to benefit the individual health wise. Marijuana, once known as cannabis, has been used for medicinal purposes. Which could benefit the individual health wise. Alcohol has been known for impairing an individual. In “The Rise and Fall of Prohibition” scientific studies found the harmful uses of drinking the substances including “alcohol limited motor reaction, caused issues with nerve centers controlling the heart, interfered with digestion, and worsened diseases.” Someone who gets intoxicated by alcohol could not argue that their consuming had any beneficial--health wise--on their
Another experiment reported to find that the harmful chemical components present in cigarettes that modifies “normal” individuals gene expression, helps those with schizophrenia to “normalize” their expression with certain genes (“Nicotine may benefit”, 2006). Although smoking nicotine for those living with schizophrenia can help enhance their quality of life, it does not cure their illness and can be the determinate other illnesses to develop due to harmful chemicals involved with smoking (“Nicotine may benefit”, 2006). Although it may be contrary to its use, nicotine can greatly help smoking individuals to slowly stop smoking (Berry, 2013). Nicotine is a highly addictive
People shouldn 't some either of these types of drugs or any other type of drugs so you won 't get any type of disease/sickness.People believe that drugs won 't do anything bad to you but they do and no one seems to care.You should just be drug free to have a healthy life.Its way better to keep away from drugs so you have to worry about getting in trouble by the law.You can go for a run,play with your dog,go for a swim rather then doing drugs.The FDA adminestration tested that most e-cigrattes were toxic with multiple chemicals e-cigrattes even contain nicotine.On the other hand some FDA results claim that e-cigrattes aren 't as bad as regualr cigrattes.The problem of e-cigrattes is going to be handle im court to see if they should ban them
Research findings have suggested that the decriminalization of drugs would result in a less adversarial drug market in which conflicts have tended to arise among dealers as well as between dealers and buyers (Common Sense for Drug Policy, 2007, p. 21). Essentially, although drugs have been held accountable for gang violence and other acts of violence that have occurred within communities, the illegality of drugs indeed may have aggravated the situation. In addition, it has become evident that one of the primary objectives of the war on drugs, which is to limit supply and demand, has been largely ineffective. CSDP (2007) “According to the United Nations, profits in illegal drugs are so inflated that three-quarters of all drug shipments would have to
Negative effects of PED use include baldness, liver damage, acne, “roid rage”, and other physical and psychological effects. ("Effects of Performance-Enhancing) Death however, is not one of the potential risks of using PEDs, making it safer than many other substances that one may put into their body (alcohol, drugs). PEDs do not harm society, only the individual (Dillingham). It is foolish to say that it puts individuals at risk when they are already encouraging one another to hit one another as hard as they can. In addition, any human that is smaller than another is already at a disadvantage.
Drug abuse is one of the key concepts in taboo recreation. Drugs are fine to an extent until you get to the point of addiction. There are some drugs which you cannot get physically addicted to such as marijuana. However, I feel that almost anything can become an addiction because wail your body may not become dependent on it you mind can become addicted to it. You may not get addicted to the drug its self but you can get addicted to the feeling it gives you like how adrenaline junkies are addicted to that rush of
