@lurch, I think the drugs really had all the best intentions in mind until it fell into the wrong industry’s hands and began to be handed out without purpose other than to tune out. They can be helpful, but they are there to give you ability to cope with a phase while you learn how to handle your anxiety/depression/shit destroying your life. The issue is that they end up being a means, and a crutch, and the person could just keep taking them with no purpose… endlessly. That’s obviously terrible because it is treating the symptoms and never treating the cause. These pills were meant to give you the ability to treat the cause when you are disabled to the point of not having the breathing room to even think about trying to figure out what the heck to do. Also, if you’re talking about anti anxiety pills, they’re generally easy to quit… but antidepressants could have lasting or troublesome issues when you try to get off of them. I’ve been on both and quit both, so these are just opinions some years later. Weed can also get addictive and hard to quit. Yes, I’m aware that this is an ongoing arguement that it can’t be addictive, but if you’re using it to self-medicate, you’re… using.
