• A very concerning issue with drug and alcohol abuse in the United States today is with how common and how generally accepted marijuana abuse is. What a lot of people are forgetting is that marijuana is the number one gateway drug in the nation. Even if it isn't nearly as bad as most drugs are, 90% of all drug addicts in the country will admit that they started with marijuana as their first drug. This alone is reason to keep it illegal and to not allow its use.
• Crisis after crisis has presented itself in the form of drug and alcohol abuse and addiction. However, nothing quite shows the devastating effects of drugs and alcohol like the sheer number of Americans who are in some way affected by it. By this it is not just meant those who actually are abusing drugs and alcohol, but it is instead meant the family members and loved ones who are also affected. Truth be told, studies show that about one out of every 10 Americans know someone who is addicted to drugs or alcohol, and one out of every five Americans has at some point in their life been adversely affected by somebody who was addicted.
