Understanding Health Issues
Drugs are a worldwide health issue that has caused the death of thousands of people. In some areas it is a lot more common than others, such as Pontiac, MI. This city, located in Oakland County, has had a drug problem for years. It’s not uncommon for me to read a news article of someone who has been caught with narcotics in this area. Pontiac makes it harder for people to grow that already come from low-income neighborhoods. This being not only because of housing discrimination, but because of drug involvement. The long-term health deficiencies caused from drugs, such as cocaine, can lead to: hallucinations, paranoia, mood-swings and poor diet.
