A case has been made that drug use in itself is not a problem – the real problem is an economic and social one and drug abuse is only a symptom of underlying conditions such as unemployment, racial inequality, and the erosion of family values. This argument states that drug abuse will diminish when these problems are resolved. Is this a valid argument?
A problem only becomes a problem when the effects exhibited from a given action does add value to life. While taking a look at drug taking more is at stake when it's in use as opposed to a situation when people live a drug free life now that it leads to intoxication and could cause some react negatively. A lot of harm has come about as a result of it with know hope of altering the situation owing to addiction.
