  1. Drugs are a lot of different substances. Not all of them are banned. From the obvious – alcohol and nicotine.

    Those that are prohibited were banned in several stages. The first is the prohibition of opiates and cocaine in the early 20th century. Two circumstances coincided in their ban. First, these are hard drugs that cause a lot of problems. Secondly, the state has already matured to regulate such things. Alcohol also causes a lot of problems, but at first people were not aware of strong alcoholic beverages, and then there was a significant cultural layer associated with alcohol consumption – where the use of opium, coca leaves or marijuana was known from ancient times and managed to become part of the culture, they also did not seek to prohibit anything.

    The second stage is the 60s. As is now known (https://harpers.org/archive/2016/04/legalize-it-all/), Nixon launched a war on drugs to discredit his political opponents-hippies, leftists, black activists. Then, under the general comb, they banned everything else that they reached out to and brought the fight to the international level.

    The results of almost 60 years of the war on drugs are such that the war is lost outright. Marijuana is being massively legalized in the US states. They are going to produce an antidepressant based on ketamine. The use of psilocybin mushrooms for the treatment of tobacco and alcohol dependence and depression is being investigated. MDMA is being tested as a treatment for PTSD. Amphetamine and methamphetamine (and neighboring stimulants-methylphenidate, for example) are prescribed for ADHD and narcolepsy.

    Numerous studies of drug harm show that with almost any method of counting, alcohol and nicotine are included in the top 5 dangerous substances, and MDMA and psychedelics of all varieties complete the list as the safest psychoactive substances.

    All these trends will not reach Russia soon, so if you are a drug addict, do not worry, in the next 20 years they will not stop considering at the state level that a weed smoker is not a person.

  2. Drugs are illegal because they eat away at the brain and lead to heavy addiction. By the way, alcohol is also a drug, it's just that not everyone is addicted to it, so they are tolerant of such dope. For the same reason, pot is also allowed in some countries. Dope leads to distortion of consciousness, and degradation, and not to expansion. Expand the consciousness of erudition and positive life experience.

  3. first expand, and then …they narrow it down a lot. As a result, it is better to talk about drugs as mind-narrowing substances. Up the stairs leading down.�

    A DRUG is an excitatory toxic substance used as an analgesic or sleeping pill. It comes from the other Greek. naρκωτικός “paralyzing, causing numbness”, from naάρκη “numbness, numbness, paralysis”. In a number of European languages, the word is borrowed through the Latin narcoticum.

  4. Drugs are illegal because they do not expand consciousness, but cause hallucinations. Drug intoxication.

    They undermine the moral and social foundations and norms of society, destructively affect health and destroy human productivity.

    It should be understood that in some countries drugs are an item of national income, and in some they are decriminalized, but still socially unacceptable.

    Example: in the United States, marijuana is partially legalized, but you will still be forced to pee in a jar and thrown out of your post even as a small clerk in a reputable company if you blow. And you'll go to work as a cashier in a burger joint. And they'll make you pee, find drugs, and fire you there, too. Because if you are not God forbid in a state of drug intoxication nachudite, it can fly in a pretty penny. And you'll be unemployed. But you can get stoned until you puke to death.
