If you Google “what is a drug” the answer you’ll come up with is this…
“A medicine or other substance which has a physiological effect when ingested or otherwise introduced into the body”.
But there is a large community out there that really does not give credence to the fact that weed is truly a drug.
I believe it is do to the fact that weed does not have same horrific consequences as other drugs and alcohol does. By smoking weed you wont wake up with a hangover in a holding cell the next morning asking the correctional officer “what happened” how did I get in here? After killing everybody in your family including the dog and then burning the house down like you could do on alcohol. Or go around snatching old ladies purses to get more heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine. Yes weed is really a drug!
