Marijuana "Pot Or Weed"
Marijuana is the most commonly used illegal drug in the world. A survey conducted in 2007 found that 14.4 million individuals in the US alone had smoked marijuana at least once during the previous month,shocking right? It is also been legalized in about 14 U.S.A. States.
The mental consequences of marijuana use are equally severe. Marijuana smokers have poorer memories and mental aptitude than do non-users, But that's fake. In some places like North Korea, Pot is not even a drug. and it has been PROVEN that marijuana can heal and help people;but that's not the only strange fact

Heroin is a highly addictive, illegal drug. It is used by millions of addicts around the world who are unable to overcome the urge to continue taking this drug every day of their lives—knowing that if they stop, they will face the horror of withdrawal.
Heroin was first manufactured in 1898 by the Bayer pharmaceutical company of Germany and marketed as a treatment for tuberculosis as well as a remedy for morphine addiction,Sadly It backfired and instead,became a drug.
In heroin's Purest Form It is a fine white powder, But more often, it is found to be rose gray, brown or black in color. The coloring comes from additives Which have been used to dilute it, which can include sugar, caffeine or other substances. Street heroin is sometimes “cut” with strychnine or other poisons. The various additives do not fully dissolve, and when they are injected into the body, can clog the blood vessels that lead to the lungs, kidneys or brain So This itself can lead to infection or destruction of vital organs, Which is bad for you in the long run.

What can we do to Stop This?!
D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Is a highly acclaimed program that gives kids the help they need to avoid Using, And Being involved in drugs, gangs, and violence. D.A.R.E. Was founded in 1983 In Los Angeles And Has Ben Proven To Help And Is In 75 percent of our nation’s school districts and in more than 43 countries around the world. Other than D.A.R.E. Not much is effort is being put in to children and drug abuse "Don't take drugs" Speech clearly is not working;And it might not ever. But as the Nation Grows more ways are being produced to stop drug abuse, Like D.A.R.E. And Some drugs Are being legalized like marijuana.
