Being “clean” is a term used to describe someone no longer influenced by recreational drugs. It is a quality associated with getting out of something so negative it must be hidden behind bars and the eyes of the innocent. What do we really want to accomplish when we rush into judgment that all who use recreational drugs are people who do not fit the society?
Yet, drugs that we use for medicinal purposes don’t hold the same stigma. It is understandable that we do not apply the same judgment but is it really necessary to bring down this darker side of science? Won’t it be possible for the both of them to be seen as two ideas that should coexist under the same light?
Like this monochromatic image of a pharmacy, the two contrasting colors creating the piece are the two sides of the idea of being influenced by drugs. One is darker, and the other one is light and radiant. This is the current reality about how we see the effect of science inside our minds. One is healing, and the other is abusive. One is exceedingly celebrated, and the other is forcibly hidden in the shadows for others not to see. But if we take a closer look, don’t we see that both of them are just trying to aid a person to overcome a dreadful feeling they can no longer bear?
