The Normality of Drugs in College
In high school, like many of other teenagers, I have always heard about the abundance of drugs that will be present on college campuses. Little did I know how popular, and normal it was among the people in college. In high school, the big thing to do was Marijuana. It was easy to get, and most people were too afraid to move onto the harder drugs. But now a days, I over hear people on campus in between classes talk about Cocaine, Ecstasy, and other harder drugs like its no big deal.
Although this picture is silly, it seems to be what people our age are doing. While some students claim that they are only using drugs to "have a good time", others will fall into a trap that will ruin their lives. Extended drug use can lead a person to have no money, it can ruin relationships, and can often leave them extremely sick or even dead. Most college students want to have a good time, but do not necessarily think about the potential long term effects of trying a drug one time. Next time you hear a friend talking about using drugs at the next party, just remind them of the bright future they have ahead of them.
