A weird pattern I’m observing for last 20-25 years. Don’t know if it’s specific to my country (not usa) or a regular behaviour across the world.
When economic situation gets worse, more people start to dive into heavier drugs.
Should not it be opposite? The better the life quality, more money for drugs. But observation shows completely different stakes. Worsening quality of life, higher inflation rates, higher unemployment rates and other unpleasant economic things – the higher number of drug abuse, even though people have less money.
I have an idea why it’s happening: if a man has a stable job and money, he can find far more interesting and less harmful things than heroin. But when dread is countrywide, he starts to look for momentum escapes through drugs and then is caught into addiction.
Would like to hear your opinions.
