  1. Intro

    1. Wendell Barry once said, “People use drugs, legal and illegal, because their lives are intolerably painful or dull. They hate their work and find no rest in their leisure. They are estranged from their families and their neighbors. It should tell us something that in healthy societies drug use is celebrative, convivial, and occasional, whereas among us it is lonely, shameful, and addictive. We need drugs, apparently, because we have lost each other.”  The prohibition of drugs has had a very big impact on today’s society. There are many different opinions when it comes to the uses of certain drugs.

      The different uses of drugs whether it be legal or illegal have brought different effects on the economy and society.
