Did you know that nine out of every ten adults say that teachers should inform students about drugs in school? Drug addiction is becoming a major problem amongst teenagers.
Many people dont even realize that they use drugs. Alcohol is a drug. It is the most popular drug in America. People also dont realize that alcohol is addictive until its too late. Alcohol is also very dangerous. On September 13, 2000, I witnessed a crash by my house. A guy skidded across the road and ended up on my neighbors lawn. The windshield was cracked on the drivers side. The driver looked at the smoking car and said that it was fine. He just needed to get it off the curb. When the police showed up, he asked the driver if he had hit his head on the windshield. The driver replied with “No.” The driver was drunk and thought the car looked fine while the car was actually smashed pretty badly.
Drinking and driving is an extremely dangerous mix. More people die from D.W.I. (driving while intoxicated) accidents that any other way. Alcohol is also fattening. Why do so many people complain about their weight, and they still drink?
What are the consequences of using drugs? Well, your school work will suffer. Many friends wont talk to you anymore, leaving you lonely. You will feel lazy and you will forget a lot of important things, memories.
Drugs are also very expensive. Weed goes for about twenty dollars a sack and ecstacy goes for around twenty dollars a hit. If you are caught with drugs, you will either end up in jail or you will be on probation. They might also send you to a drug rehabilitation center.
Drugs can also cause many different medical problems. Your brain, heart, liver, of other vital organs can become cancerous or have other malfunctions.
Death is also a great chance a person takes when using drugs. It is very easy to accidentally overdose on a drug.
