Restricting or taking the meds away will not solve the problem itself. It might encourage a few to quit ...tho the easiest way to 'quit' is to replace one addiction for another. Prohibition will only drive it further underground and accentuate crime. The next generation of 'empty lifers' will then take the place of those who became 'clean'.
Whether it's true or not it being a symptom of an empty life, there are those who take drugs because they enjoy them. Nature herself has given us substances to alter consciousness and mood, and relieve pain [physical or psychological]
oh no
