Advocates of this philosophy point to the many well-knownartists and intellectuals who have used drugs, experimentally or otherwise, with few

Responsible drug use becomes drug abuse only whenthe use of the substance significantly interferes with the users daily life.Responsible drug use advocates that users should not take drugs at the same time asactivities such as driving, swimming, operating machinery, or other activities that areunsafe without a sober state. Responsible drug use is emphasized as a primary preventiontechnique in harm-reduction drug policies. Harm-reduction policies were popularized inthe late 1980s, although they began in the 1970s counter-culture where users weredistributed cartoons explaining responsible drug use and consequences of irresponsibledrug use.[2] Another issue is that the illegality of drugs in itself may also cause social andeconomic consequences for those using them — the drugs may be "cut" with adulturantsand the purity varies wildly, making overdoses more likely — and legal regulation ofdrug production and distribution would alleviate these and other dangers of illegal druguse.[3] Harm reduction seeks to minimize the harm that can occur through the use ofvarious drugs, whether legal (e.g., alcohol and nicotine), or illegal (e.g., heroin andcocaine). For example, people who inject illicit drugs can minimize harm to boththemselves and members of the community through proper injecting technique, usingnew needles and syringes each time, and proper disposal of all injecting equipment.SITE SOME SAMPLES OF RECREATIONsome recreational drugs • Cannabis plant • Medical cannabis and a vaporizer
