If they know that illegal drugs like maijuana, cocaine, opium, etc. can cause brain and body damage, why are they still selling it to some innocent people? I think this is wrong, and if this drugs can kill, how about they reverse it side effects, it may help people not destroying it!

What do you think guys?

I agree with the reversing of side effects being stupid but if someone was in real pain/on their death bed, then some drugs would make their last moments more bearable. Since the title is who created illegal drugs, I believe that they were at first small drugs used for medicinal,religious things but as we became more modern, we move more away from those and started using them in excess.

Most drugs that are grown, such as marijuana, opium, and cocaine, have been used by people for centuries. They aren't new in the slightest, and hallucinagens have long been regarded among mystic circles. No one "created" them; they were found to be pathways and connections to the Gods by ancient peoples who didn't know any better.

Drugs like meth and heroin were made largely through experiment and is no wonder they tend to have the worst effects on the body, considering they are manufactured out of hard chemicals rather than plant products.

It's also important to remember that older drugs only have recently known side effects due to newer advances in technology. Nobody really knew about the long term effects of smoking tobacco, for instance, even as early as the 1950's. Plus, they were much more "pure" back then than they are now. A cigarette made in the World War eras has a huge difference in composition than a cigarette now.

I don't know if you're simply being naive, or you're really curious to know...

We all know that drugs are bad, but as long as there are people with messed up lives who end up being dependent on designer drugs are around, a demand will be created, and that demand will be fed by those who make the drugs. It's called a "profitable black market", and like it or not, it exists.

And even though there are anti-drug campaigns going on, it's naive to expect that this will solve anything. Like I said, this is a profitable industry, and that means politicians who stick their hand in the cookie jar simply can't resist the temptation to squander some money through the black trade. You can pretty much say that corruption co-exists with drug pushing.

Now I'm not condoning this trade; rather, I'm stating the facts. If you really want to know how drugs started, there was a big boom during the Renaissance period for opium and similar drugs that were originally made to treat wounds or serve as analgesics. In fact, many of the first drugs were simply medicines, that when took in great amounts, caused euphoric side-effects, which generally caught on as a "recreational trend" and a sign of wealthy gimmicks and privileges.

In other words, you can say that drug-pushing was condoned in the past, simply because the rich considered it to be a recreational sport.

Eventually, however, the side effects of these "recreational drugs" were realized, and were quickly banned as "dangerous and a threat to human society". Thus began the start of extensive legislation to safe guard the public from recreational drugs and other possible medications that could be used in means that may cause addictive side-effects.

This cycle continues today, and is pretty much the sum total of everything you asked for in this thread. Honestly, you could've just searched for this information online or read up on some books... I mean, just look at all the useless contributions in this thread...

Are you aware that the original use of marijuana was as an anesthetic?
