Uncontrolled Desire is The Root Cause Of Drug Addiction In Society

The level of illicit in society is soaring at alarming levels. Highly addictive drugs such as Fentanyl and OxyContin are now responsible of hundreds of deaths across North America. Authorities are scrambling feverishly to find solutions to the problem but while a percentage of the problem is the fault of Drug companies knowingly dismissing the addictive side-effects of their drugs; the significant portion is due to recreational drug use. At the Interface of Black Consciousness, we believe that Uncontrolled Desire is root cause of in society.

Addiction occurs when Cells that are responsible for triggering the release of hormones (Dopamine, in particular) to facilitate happiness become damaged. The Cells usually become damaged due to over stimulation from triggers (outside substances that enter the ) then they get stuck in a repetitive cycle of calling for constant triggering to release Dopamine. 

Triggers can be natural or artificial and take people beyond happiness into a state of euphoria. Some natural and potent triggers are found in the plant and the Coca plant used to produce . Medical Science discovered that while some natural substances made people happy, they also alleviated pain.

In the late 18th century Doctors began to use many of these substances to treat pain but when doctor’s egos and big business got involved in the pharmaceutical industry everything changed. In order to gain fame and increase profits stronger, faster, and more effective substances had to be found to outperform competition and maximize profits. Scientists began to peer into to the molecular composition of Nerve Cells, singled out the molecules that carry pain signals back to and designed chemicals to shut them off.

Among the various side effects, which occur depending on the drug, is also the effect on Dopamine releasing . That means that Addiction is a side-effect and not the function of most drugs. That is the excuse that Drug Companies use to justify the potency of their drugs. They then wash their hands of the responsibility of Addiction and blame addiction on individuals and society.

The root cause of the majority of drug addictions in society is due to uncontrolled desire. In other words, most drug abusers simply do not understanding how fickle their brains are. They experiment with dangerous drugs believing that they will have the will-power to overcome the after-effects but if people cannot turn on euphoria without taking drugs, what makes them think they can direct their to heal themselves after they fry them with drugs.

It’s all societys’ fault at the core because there is a constant trend towards profit over common sense that insures that the fight against drug overdose deaths will continue unabated. Meanwhile the only reaction from drug companies is to continue to profit off selling one drug to counter the effects of another.
