Dangerous Drugs Killed One More, Adam Harrison 

Pawn Stars fame Rick Harrison’s son Adam died because of a heavy drug overdose. The name of the dangerous drugs or their names is still not confirmed.

Rick Harrison’s son left the world at the early age of 39 years. The family is currently under extreme trauma. According to TMZ, they are not ready to disclose more on it right now and have asked to respect their privacy. 

The investigation is also going on, so we will not discuss it further until the facts come out. However, this is not the first time dangerous drugs have taken the life of an American. 

According to data by NIDA, more than 106,000 US residents died because of drug overdose in 2022. These are the big numbers for any nation. We believe that drugs have the potential to save our lives. 

But why are drugs doing the opposite of what they were developed for?

The simple answer could be that people take more than they need, which results in tragic deaths. But why overdose? Are we so uneducated that we can’t follow the basic steps given by our GP? No, we are not!

People who die from drug overdose, often take it unconsciously. They start with small doses. It does not matter for what purpose they are taking the dangerous drugs, either for recreational purposes or for medicinal use.

Once the drugs are taken, they produce euphoric effects, and the consumer starts feeling high. It takes them to a world where everything is so pleasant, and the user wants to feel it longer. That’s why they take the drug again and again. 

And at a certain point in time, it converts into an overdose and results in death. 

What drugs are causing deaths in the United States? 

A number of drugs are available to kill people in the United States. Although they were made to save lives, they are killing now. 

Opioids

Opioids, also known as narcotic products, are causing the most deaths in the United States. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, these dangerous drugs have killed 80,411 US residents in 2021. The numbers will be even higher in 2023 and 2024. 

Opioids are a kind of product approved for the treatment of severe pain that cannot be treated with non-opioids. Professionals also use such products as anesthesia before medical surgeries. 

*These numbers represent deaths caused by any prescription or non-prescription opioids. 

Benzodiazepines 

Benzos are a kind of dangerous drugs which are used for the treatment of psychological health conditions. They may be prescribed for the treatment of anxiety, panic disorder, and sometimes for insomnia. 

As per the reports, benzodiazepines have killed about 12,499 people in 2021 in the United States. All these deaths were not because of the treatment; they were because of high doses or overdoses. 

Antidepressants 

Antidepressants also fall into the category of dangerous drugs that kill people in the United States. NIDA claims 5,859 US residents were killed by these drugs in the United States in 2021. 

Note: We have mentioned a bit of old data as the newest information has not been officially launched yet. These stats are only for general knowledge. To learn more recent updates, please visit Wikipedia. 

How do we prevent deaths caused by dangerous drugs? 

It is very simple: stop abusing drugs or start using them as prescribed and when prescribed. The recreational use of such drugs has been the biggest challenge right now. People are enjoying the poison, and that is the only reason they are getting killed. 

Why do people enjoy drugs?

According to reports, a large population of the United States is struggling with some type of emotional health condition. They have lost interest in activities of daily living and want pleasure. They have everything, but they are missing internal peace. 

This is the only reason people start taking such substances and soon become addicts. Addition leads to overdose, overdose to death. 

For addicts, drugs are a double-edged sword. If they do not consume it, they experience very unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, and if they consume it, they die.

So, the best way is to keep people away from these dangerous drugs. 

What government has done yet? 

The government is taking every possible step to safeguard the citizens. The US Food and Drug Administration has only one aim: to prevent drug use. Other governmental and non-governmental organizations are also consistently working on it. 

Dangerous drugs have been categorized as Rx-only medications that cannot be purchased for recreational uses. However, the illegal selling of drugs is the only reason why people are losing their loved ones. 

Online drug selling is also a big factor contributing to such kinds of deaths. Read our report on online drug-selling fraud. 

Hope, we have discussed it well and that it will help people avoid the consequences of such dangerous drugs.
