4 Types Of Drugs That Are Legal To Use Today

There are a number of reasons why people start using drugs. There are those who perceive it as a perfect escape to a different world where they’ll potentially be happier or will at least forget all the troubles they experience on a daily basis.

And then there are people who will use them because they want to relax and unwind for a bit, particularly if they are constantly under stress. Whatever the reason may be, today we can come across drugs that are not illegal in every country.

Even though they are illegal in some parts of the world, there are still places that permit them. If you would like to learn more about these drugs, then scroll below because today I’ll provide you with some useful information when it comes to this.

What Do We Know About THCa?

I assume that most of you have heard of THC, but are you familiar with THCa? Namely, it represents a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is found in cannabis. One of the most common reasons why THCa strains are very popular is due to their health benefits. They are widely known for reducing inflammation, and alleviating pain and can be utilized for a variety of different conditions, such as seizures, arthritis, etc.

Apart from these aforementioned ones, you can use this drug to improve health issues like Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer’s disease. When it comes to the United States, in only 5 out of 50 states this drug is prohibited (Hawaii, Arkansas, Minnesota, Rhode Island, and Oregon). Everywhere else in the USA, you can freely employ it.


Contrary to popular belief that opium is nothing but a harmful drug, there are some reports that suggest otherwise. What I’ve uncovered recently is that it is often used to combat diarrhea because it’s capable of slowing the movement of the GI tract.

Aside from that, since opium is also a known painkiller, some people use it to relieve the pain, but not as much as for diarrhea. But where can you use it these days? If you would like to grow it for medicinal use, then you can do so in countries like Australia, India, and Turkey.

Methamphetamine – Harmful Or Not?

Methamphetamine is notorious for being an extremely detrimental drug that is able to cause a variety of different issues, such as anxiety, panic attacks, paranoia, vomiting, nausea, and many other things.

Not to mention the fact that this drug is highly addictive as well. But then, nowadays, you can still stumble upon places where it is considered legal, such as Hong Kong, Italy, and Portugal. Now, the question is, is it as harmful as many think it is?

Even though there’s no doubt that it comes with various detrimental effects on the brain, there are still some studies that have shown that methamphetamine could actually enhance some brain functions and may even fix and safeguard the brain in specific circumstances.

But still, it doesn’t mean that it’s supposed to be used since in time, it can cause some serious damage to the brain. 

Infamous Cocaine

I was shocked when I recently uncovered that this drug is extremely popular in the United Kingdom. That’s probably one of the reasons why this country is facing a lot of cocaine-related deaths. 

And this comes as no surprise since just like so many drugs, cocaine is very addictive. And unfortunately, after several uses, you can become addicted to it. That’s because this drug encourages the brain’s pleasure centers, which leads to dopamine release.

And then individuals who use it instantly become very happy, excited, euphoric, etc. However, since cocaine’s high is pretty short it frequently leads to additional use which eventually turns someone into an addict.

Although it is widely known that this drug is very harmful and forbidden in most countries, it still doesn’t mean that there aren’t places where you can use it without being arrested or getting fined. 

For example, in Hong Kong, you can use it if it was issued by the Department of Health. On the other hand, in Germany, you can employ it if you have a medical prescription and you’re not going to be punished if you’ve utilized it for the first time or you’re generally not perceived as an offender.

In South America, restricted cultivation is allowed in Bolivia and Peru, where chewing leaves, for instance, are even perceived as a cultural practice, however, processed cocaine is strictly forbidden.

As you can see, there are countries that are quite liberal when it comes to drugs. Whatever the reason may be behind this decision, I would still advise you to be careful if you decide to give some drugs a try.
