The latest buzzword in drug policy is recreational drugs, which have become a part of our everyday lives.
But do they work?
Is recreational drugs as harmful as they’re being made out to be?
Let’s explore these issues and more.1.
Recreational drugs are addictive.
That’s what the DEA says.
The Drug Enforcement Administration says recreational drugs are “high risk and dangerous to the individual and society.”
While that may be true for many drugs, it also has a negative connotation for recreational drugs.
The DEA makes it clear that the only time you can use recreational drugs recreationally is when you’re in a therapeutic setting with people who are already addicted to those drugs.
This is an extremely common misconception.
There are lots of other substances that people can use to help themselves and their loved ones deal with the withdrawal symptoms of withdrawal, like alcohol, marijuana, and other illegal substances.
In addition, the DEA warns that recreational drugs can cause “serious psychological and physical consequences.”
While this may seem like a good reason to stop using recreational drugs for a while, the reality is that recreational use can actually be more dangerous than you think.
People who use recreational drug use can experience withdrawal symptoms like: anxiety, depression, sleepiness, agitation, confusion, and panic attacks.
While the use of recreational drugs is common, these symptoms can be exacerbated if they aren’t taken seriously.
It can be hard to determine if a person who uses recreational drugs actually has withdrawal symptoms, or if the symptoms just appear because they’re trying to get the drug.
If you’re trying recreational drugs to get high, you may be using the wrong medication, or your body may be reacting to the drugs as a natural and normal part of withdrawal.2.
Recreationally using recreational drug can cause serious psychological and physically consequences.
The effects of recreational drug abuse can be severe and permanent.
People with chronic or ongoing drug addiction may have feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness, guilt, depression and even suicidal thoughts.
People may have suicidal thoughts and feelings that are exacerbated when they’re not taking the medication needed to help them.
People that have used recreational drugs before can develop withdrawal symptoms if they’re using recreational substances recreationally.
And recreational drug users often develop anxiety, irritability, paranoia, and post-traumatic stress disorder.3.
Recreations are not safe.
Recreative drugs are not approved by the FDA, so the FDA doesn’t have any idea whether recreational drugs work or not.
There’s no way to prove whether a recreational drug has helped you or harmed you, so there’s no scientifically-based research to support recreational drug claims.
This means that recreational drug manufacturers and retailers don’t have to disclose the safety and effectiveness of their drugs, making it difficult for people to know whether recreational drug products are safe or not to take.
Recreating drugs can lead to: • Serious medical complications, like heart attacks, strokes, and kidney disease • Deaths, like drug overdoses, from overdose or overdose-related deaths • Death from liver disease, from liver cirrhosis, and liver cancer.
Recreated drugs can be addictive, and people who abuse recreational drugs have a high risk of addiction.
People in addiction have a higher risk of becoming dependent on recreational drugs and end up taking more of the drugs themselves, increasing their risk of injury and death.
Recreates can also lead to a high rate of overdose deaths, and if you use recreational substances, you should never try to stop your drug use.
Recreate drugs can also cause: • Physical harm to yourself or others • Death • Injuries to yourself and others, and/or accidents • Addiction-related problems, like mood swings, mood disorders, and suicide.
Recreally using recreational medications can also have serious psychological consequences, like anxiety, panic attacks, depression.
Recreant drug use is not only bad for people who use them recreationally, but it can also harm the rest of society.
Recreants are a significant contributor to the problems in the U.S. when it comes to suicide, alcohol use, domestic violence, drug abuse, and obesity.
Recreantly using recreational narcotics can also contribute to other problems that contribute to the rise in crime, such as:• Incarceration of people who have used drugs recreatively• Police-reported abuse of recreational substances in public placesSource: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, The New York Times article The following are some common questions people often ask about recreational drugs:What’s the most common reason someone stops using recreational opioids?• What happens to recreational drugs that people use recreationally?• How does recreational drugs affect my mood?• Is recreational drug addiction real?• Does recreational drug treatment work?
