What 9 Common Drugs Including Caffeine, Weed, And Booze Do To Your Brain, Business Insider, July 2015
How common do you think drug use is? Both licit and illicit. Drugs this article didn’t consider, besides prescription painkillers, are other psychoactive prescription drugs … sleeping pills, benzodiazepines and other anti-anxiety drugs, anti-depressants, Adderall and other stimulants. They didn’t mention nicotine either, the main psychoactive drug in cigarettes and vapes.
Do you think you meet anyone in a day who doesn’t do some drug? Who isn’t altering the function of their brain? I think about this when I’m out driving (other drivers). I thought about it a lot when I took public transportation (boy, do I have some stories there!). It comes to mind when I think about the people running our country, or the people who perform surgeries. My first inclination when I meet someone is that they are not under the influence of any drug. I think I need to work on that inclination.
