Everything concerning drugs: medical and recreational is messed up. Everyone wants to fight the war on drugs and stop the distribution, we have our DARE programs and commercials.
None of this is working obviously …and that is because we don’t address the actual issue.
The issue starts in mind, we don’t address mental health while talking about drugs.
Mental illness plays a critical role that leads to drug addiction.
From my experiences with taking medication for mental illness,
The medication isn’t that great.
I only took the medication when I wanted too, and when I felt great, I stopped taking it.
I am not the only person who struggles with taking medication consistently and honestly it does not make sense to put people who struggle with inconsistency in the first place to take medication.
Not only is taking the medication for mental health is negative but also everything that happens after you receive your diagnosis which makes life a lot harder.
People view you as different.
Some loved ones will never understand
And Medicinal Industry sees you as a test subject rather than a human being.
The War on drugs is an excuse for not doing better in the mental health field as well as incriminate African Americans.
If the United States really wanted to fight the War on Drugs than a good start would be at the root…mental illness.
