Overview

Whether they come from doctors, dealers, or liquor stores, the drugs we take can have substantial impacts on the body and mind. Marijuana provides relaxation or release for medical and recreational users. Opioids entice users looking for quick, strong highs. Long-term alcohol abuse causes severe deterioration of the body. In the Drugs in Real Life series, explore the physical, psychological, social, and legal aspects of drug use, while also considering addiction, responsible drug treatment, and the difference between use and abuse. This isn't a health-class lecture-this is Drugs in Real Life.
