Most Dangerous Drugs

Most Dangerous Drugs

It depends on how we define “dangerous” and whether we mean legal , illegal or Prescription drugs. Most dangerous drugs are the one that do the most damage, mentally,physically,and socially. In terms of most dangerous drugs , Alcohol, heroin, and crack cocaine topped the chart.

Alcohol, tobacco, and prescription painkillers are likely deadlier than other drugs because they are legal, so comparing their aggregate effects to illegal drugs is difficult. Some drugs are very harmful to individuals, but they’re so rarely used that they may not be a major public health threat. A few drugs are enormously dangerous in the short term but not so much the long term (heroin), or vice versa (tobacco). And looking at deaths or other harms caused by certain drugs doesn’t always account for substances, such as prescription medications, that are often mixed with others, making them more deadly or harmful than they would be alone
