Drugs in America

Do you know someone who does drugs? To many people are doing drugs in America. I have some causes why too many people are doing drugs. One cause is that drugs are not illegal. As long as drugs are not illegal people are not going to stop buying Drugs. Buying Drugs are not good for the air because the Drugs pollute the air. That is one cause and effect to too many people doing drugs.

Do you know how much money people are spending on drugs a year? People are spending way too much money on drugs. Since people are spending all this money on drugs, stores are making all of their money off of the drugs they sell. In the one year people spend more money on drugs then they do for gas in their car. That probably makes most of their profit go to the drugs that they buy each year. Now do you believe me that people that spend their money on drugs spend way too much on drugs.

Did you know that there is a reason that people continue to smoke after they have had one cigarette. Do you know what that is? Well I have the answer! Do you want to know? OK, fine I guess I will tell you. OK so it is in all types of drugs. The first time you take that drug it doesn't taste very good but you keep taking them why is that? That is because there is nicotine in the drug. Nicotine is the main ingredient that makes you addicted I am not sure if there is another ingredient but I don’t know what that is. When you take a drug the nicotine gets in your body. From there it goes to your lungs and blocks off the path for air to get in your lungs. This makes it more likely to have a heart attack. The more people smoke the more heart attacks people have and that affects the hospitals. That is bad news for the hospitals. This makes the hospitals full of stinky unhealthy people that have had heart attacks from the drugs they take daily. These people that are having heart attacks have been smoking in the past and most of the time are still smoking. That is how people can get in the hospitals from Drugs. That is all for this article. If you couldn’t tell these were some causes and effects from doing drugs.

What might happen to you?

Do what is right and don’t hurt other people around you. Avoiding drugs is a big thing because it can hurt not only you but people around you (especially elderly and their breathing). If you avoid drugs instead of going near them then you probably be more likely to live longer. It is not very likely for you to start drugs. You will stay close and in contact with your friends that you know. The most important thing is you will not lose what is most important your family. I can guarantee you that you will be healthier than people who do do drugs. Now to wrap this piece up I have a little piece of advice. You will hear this a lot in this article. Don’t do what is wrong and lose what is most important in life.

There are some major differences and some minor difference in doing drugs and not doing drugs. Let me tell you some. I have already told you what will happen to you if you don’t do drugs, so let me tell you what will happen if you do start drugs. Let me just tell you that if your friends don’t like drugs they are going to ditch you as soon as they find out what you have been doing. You could start doing drugs. Again you will probably lose what is most important, such as family. When you start drugs you kind of lose your mind and make bad decision. The decisions that you make are probably going get you in trouble and you might go to jail. Now let me tell you something when you start drugs your personality changes then that changes how you act. That could lead you into trouble. Another thing that can lead you into trouble is the people that you hang out with. I just want you to think about that.

Now since I have told what the differences are I am going to tell you the similarities. Weather you start or not you will be the same person your personality might change though. You could always meet new people. Anybody can accomplish anything if they just believe in their self. You could also accomplish things thought could never be accomplished. Now to wrap this article up I a going to tell you AGAIN whatever you do don’t lose what is most important in your life live family or friends that are like family.

So you know how I said that people need to find solutions for the drunk drivers problem I have came up with some solutions that might just might work. You should have to have an usher if you have had any kind of alcohol that night. People should not go to bars and stay for hours. People should not think they have to drink in front of family.
