And concoctions like chicken soup for a cold, Shamans medicine made out of bug guts, coughing drops and the such. There are countless things that are labeled drugs because "it's easy to remember and life is all about living easy and psyducking other people over"
But not all medicine is a "drug" and the such of us classifying them as such, it's only a label because most of society isn't smart nor does it care about anything but itself to delabel what doesn't belong
And if you want to bring in pills and other such. The FDA allowed a drug that it's side effect is death. Many pills have bad side effects. And again, definition of a drug is chemically altered. But home remedies classified as drugs, Marijuana is classified as a drug because that's what the government wants. It's not a drug it's a plant. And we are allergic to it which is what causes us to get high. However it's not deathly but to a very select few people and very select few people it does the side effects of drugs like coke and meth. And again very select few people immune to it
And if your debate is "not a drug yet used as medicine" what about home remedies and the such? Most of those are just ingredients and things that mixed together make the drug but in raw form and yet healthy for you. Even cancer patients smoke because not only does it help reduce pain it helps slow down the growth of said tumors and helps with them after they do chemo and feel sick to begin with
Yes because it actually hasee medical effects depending on the strains. Make you hungry for anorexic peeps, tiredness from insomnia, pain relieving for chronically stressed people and physically stressed, emotionally, and it helps my dad's gf not abuse her adopted daughter from her hated sister
