I came across an article in the journal of psychiatry. Thought I should share it with you all. We all, atleast, have heard about illegal drugs like heroin, morphine, marijuana. adhaan namma ooru ganja, habin, Bhang ...which are known to cause euphoria - state of well being…
Infact drugs like ‘Ecstasy’ does much more… It opens your heart and allows love to flow.. make others understand what are your feelings.. breaks down barriers to communicate.. Some drugs give a great sense of energy (to stay awake whole night in parties) and increased sense of closeness to people …above all, no feel of hunger…night ellam pasi ilaama (saapaattu selavu miccham)..thoongaama irukalaam…ella love feelings!!!! Hmmm..
Kekave nalla irukkunnu nenakareengalaa?? But, these drugs at high doses, cause side effects like headache, blurred vision, dry mouth, tension etc..
Though some of these drugs are declared illegal, they are used for treatment since long by doctors at low doses. The doctors protest against law for condemning these due to its good use. Infact, these drugs are preferred by many psychiatrist for treatment of many conditions like minor depression, feeling dissatisfactory about themselves and in patients who cannot open up to their close people to convey what they feel (to facilitate direct communication with people involved in significant emotional relationship) In fact, they say that one time usage is sufficient to enhance their communication, not only during that time, but also, afterwards. When the person experiences the lack of risk in direct communication to their close kith / kin, they start to open up even when you stop using that drug. Thus no addiction. So it is a good drug to open up people right!!!!
You may ask why is this illegal then??? Some researchers have found that these drugs cause problems in neurotransmission/liver toxicity, increased body temperature but the results are not so conclusive.. some were disproved also… laws are made with the focus on abuse factor which is very important.. But the field of pscychiatry do not have many appropriate drugs for treatment.. Also, doctors lost a good drug among the few in psychotherapy..
Still underground chemist keep preparing…party goers have not stopped using but rate of abuse had been reduced.
