Drugs have a lot of allure because there are some associations that are dysfunctional. The idea of the wonder drug and the medical communities
dependence on them for physical symptoms confuses the general public to think they are a cure for the whole human experience, which they are not.
Taking a serious drug during critical medical crisis episodes is very appropriate to save lives, eliminate physical pain and increase the likelihood of survival. The use of drugs recreationally is not appropriate because the danger is not balanced by a corresponding good but merely by a transient high.
The culture of society needs to evolve again and find positive ways to become naturally high by the goodness of life which has no contraindications. Purpose is the way to get naturally high.
