Today, I was working and my coworker brought to my attention a positive drug screen on a pregnant woman who is about to deliver her child. At first, I was astonished. I couldn't believe it. I immediately thought terrible things. I thought what a bad situation the baby will be in, how irresponsible a mother and her child's father the couple were, and felt pity on the child for coming into the world like that. My coworker was astonished too, but for a completely different reason. She was pissssssssed. She said, "You know, I'm not too fond of the mentality on drugs. For all we know, Mama's had a terrible week and she needed to relax. She could be an incredible mother. What if she used the recreational drugs to relax, much like how a smoker smokes to relieve stress? Maybe she's been off of it for the months the months she was pregnant for the safety of her child. I'm not saying that it's healthy for the baby, but why is it we are so judge the new mother over a situation we ourselves do not fully understand?" That got me thinking. Are recreational drugs bad? I'm not really focusing about the health effects of drugs. I'm not really talking about the addiction to drugs. I'm just asking you the question with a SUPER vague term. "Bad." What makes drugs "bad?" If you think the addiction is "bad," then is the fact I am addicted to Korean music "bad?" Is the fact I fucking love tomatoes "bad?" I'm not sure how I feel about this. I realized the only reason I acted the way I did is because I was taught drugs are "bad," not because that was my opinion or that I truly understood why they are "bad." Help me think, guise!
