During the past few weeks Team 5, have had Life Education Sessions with Lynn and Harold to get a better understanding of drugs & alcohol, and how they can effect not only you but the people around you. We were then given the task to write a effective paragraph about what we've recently learn here is what I've found out.
Marijuana ( or known as pot, weed, tinnies & herb) is the most common and well known drug because it's cheap compared to other drugs and how easy it is to get a hold of. Because of how cheap it is and how easy it is to access it mostly attracts teenagers.
When you put drugs into your system, it effects the way your neurons (brain cells) work/functions. This leads to change of attitude and appearance. Most people take drugs, either because their hanging with the wrong crowd or just trying to fit in and feel cool. For me people who take drugs use it as an escape, a way to get out of reality and into their world. Most drug victims are depressed or lonely. Others are pressured and pushed into the web of addiction.
