Legal or illegal, drugs are a fact of life. While many parents would rather their children knew nothing about them, drug education is a vital part of keeping your child drug-free.
Also, many children and teens are under the impression that there is a difference between illegal drugs and OTC, prescription drugs. Let them know that a drug is simply anything that changes normal body function, and all drugs have benefits to them, and side effects. The reason that illegal drugs are illegal is because they have potential for abuse. OTC drugs have a low potential for abuse, and that is why anybody that is at least eighteen can buy them. Prescription drugs need to have doctor's approval before using. This is because they have some potential for abuse, and it is illegal to take them without a doctor's prescription. Illegal drugs have no accepted medical use, and they are damaging (most of them) to the body and can be addictive. Many illegal drugs have medical use, such as amphetamines (speed, crystal, crank). Dextroamphetamine and Methamphetamine (crystal meth) are used for ADHD, narcolepsy, and obesity.
