Are drugs good or bad?

Commonly I am asked: are drugs good or bad?

My first response is: "Different".

My second response is: "good for what or bad for what?"

We need to be specific what our goal is. Only then can we say whether a drug or other lifestyle choice is good for us.

Anything that gets you where want to go could be called "good", and anything that stops this could be said to be "bad".

Of course, the trouble with drugs, and other enjoyable but potentially damaging pastimes, is that good turns to bad and we are not even aware of it!
