Some people believe that the problem of illegal drugs can be solved by just legalizing it all drugs. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?
A considerable number of people think that making all drugs legal can be a solution to the existing problem of prohibited drugs. I disagree with this statement because of the bad side effects of freedom in buying these products more so in terms of physical and mental health. However, legalizing all drugs can also poses a benefit to people in terms of financial savings.
To start with, legalizing drugs will give the people the freedom to buy illegal drugs that will affect the physical health of every consumer. It will be uncontrollable and many people will be enjoying the benefit of using drugs even when it is beyond the requirement of their bodies. Since drugs are legal, there is no way to control the way people use it, therefore, certain problems relating to physical health like overdose, seizure, deformities in babies cannot be avoided. In addition to this, the mental health of people is at stake. For instance, drug users will become even more dependent on drugs that in turn affect the way they think. Due to this, criminal activities will be a common scenario for people who are having hallucinations and mental breakdown.
On the other hand, legalizing drugs can benefit some people to some extent. It can save people’s time, money and effort trying to get to see a doctor from time to time even for small health problems. For example, a minor headache can be helped by taking over the counter medicines as it is allowed. This way, the patient will save avoid long queue in the hospitals and use their money for some priorities. Illegal drugs can be helpful when taken in fair amount so buying these over the counter or planting cannabis can give access to poor people’s health maintenance.
In conclusion, legalizing illegal drugs poses serious threat to people’s social and mental health when taken beyond the requirement although at some point it can save other people’s lives therefore important measures are necessary to keep the usage within the limit.
