Prescription drug abuse is definitely a problem in America. Prescription drugs are incredibly dangerous and unnatural substances. They are over-prescribed and can easily get into the wrong hands. Pain killers, anti-depressants, Ritalin, and many others are unfortunately used abusively and for highs. Addiction is a very serious disease with severe consequences and these medicines can be highly addictive. Greater awareness and education need to happen to prevent people from abusing prescription drugs!
There a many people out their whom are over dosed. They still get the pills and then sell them. They also like to use the medication for reasons other than prescribed. It is an epidemic. People are abusing pain killers, and nerve drugs, even anti depressants. They sell what they don't use. It is horrible.
