Drugs are compounds that have an impact on the body and the mind. Drugs can have a wide range of impacts. Some medication side effects include long-term and irreversible health repercussions. They can even persist after a person has stopped using the drug.

Drugs can be taken in a variety of ways, including injection, inhalation, and ingestion. The way medicine is given can have an impact on its effects on the body. Injecting medications directly into the bloodstream, for example, has an instant effect, whereas eating has a delayed effect.

However, all medicines that are overused affect the brain. They cause a "high" by flooding the brain with massive levels of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps control our emotions, motivation, and sensations of pleasure. Drugs can alter the way the brain functions and impair a person's capacity to make decisions, leading to extreme cravings and compulsive drug usage. This behaviour can develop into a substance dependency or drug addiction over time.

Arresting a woman at her age, Kondwa argues, is of little value to the institution. It's like going from a first to a second grade class.


Do you think, for a woman of her age, that she did this out of her own free will or that she was threatened to do it by someone? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
