Letter About Drugs

by Jessica Gonzalez

Dear Future President ,

How many people die of drugs ? How many people use drugs? From 2000 to 2014 nearly half a million Americans died from drug overdoses. Our next president should vanquish all illegal drugs that can cause a death just by using it . A drug is any substance other than food, that when inhaled, injected, smoked, consumed, dissolved under the tongue causes a physiological change in the body. Some people use drugs to commit suicide. In my opinion nobody should be doing drugs that are not prescribed or that can harm you in any way . People who use drugs don't see the world around them as brightly and clearly as they should. 90% of Americans with a substance abuse problem started smoking, drinking or using other drugs before age 18. So if our next president can vanquish all drugs that can cause a death , there wonโ€™t be as many deaths.

Sincerely Jessica Yvonne Gonzalez
