Are recreational drugs a curse upon the birds or people in the USA?
The Chicago Tribune article titled: Opioid epidemic rips into workforce, reported:
“Ronald Armstrong, a 57-year-old recovered heroin user and peer counselor, is noticing new faces when dropping off clean needles around Washington. Along Good Hope Road and in downtown encampments are people who are younger, and many who’ve never bought drugs before.”
“At some white-collar companies, only 4 out of 10 applicants can pass a drug test, with many showing recent opioid use.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb, word definitions, and a personal opinion on this issue.
As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. (Proverb 26:2)
Definitions for purposes of this post – Merriam Webster
Curse – 1: a prayer or invocation for harm or injury to come upon one: IMPRECATION
2. evil or misfortune that comes as if in response to or as retribution
What’s My Point?
The belief in a person having power to curse someone has been recorded many times in history same as use of recreational drugs.
My point is to question who has cursed the USA with recreational drugs and caused the death of 500,000 users from past three decades from drug overdoses.
Or is a curse simply understanding the wisdom that same as a bird in flight. “So, the curse causeless shall not come”
In My Opinion
The practice in history of a person going to a witch doctor to ask them to use their perceived powers of placing a curse on an evil person who may have harmed them might be more a result of what usually happens to an evil or fool who engages in evil deeds or foolish pursuits.
That being another person takes revenge and kills those engaging in evil, or he or she dies from the folly of engaging in foolish pursuits such as use of recreational drugs overdose or health effects.
In other words, a witch doctor may have done nothing but put on a show of acting out placing a curse on someone who same as a bird decides to land in a high-risk area of bird killers or in our modern urban societies of high urban crime and poverty.
In my opinion, if you read the article, and how the present government administration plans to spend billions to treat drug addicts while at the same time profit from selling recreational drugs, to remedy drug addiction, what they are proposing is similar to going to and believing in a witchdoctor to end the curse politicians are propagating and may be personally profiting from.
That is to make obtaining drugs for recreational use more available in communities for young people to be introduced to marijuana. In spite of, the CDC scientific studies that have identified marijuana as a gateway drug to addiction, a path of folly, or the same as a bird will land in a cursed community or Nation.
Is the pandemic really the root cause of drug in a or a self-induced curse by the witchdoctors in power in political offices? Some who have investments in recreational Mariana businesses.
Is spending 700 billion dollars a year for USA military to protect and defend our Nation from other Nations, yet allow open Southern borders which is the main source of opium etc.to: land” in our Nation wise or foolish?
Did past and present evil or foolish political leaders similar to witch doctors or birds who landed in office as a result of wise or foolish voters’ choices who keep paying them to place or cure curses on our Nation?
If drug addition new faces and when 4 out of 10 people applying for jobs have drugs in their blood a sign of curse or wise or foolish birds lining in political office in the USA?
Read the Source links below. The 500,000 million overdoses figure I mentioned was the figure presented in an HBO documentary called the enemy within. Appears we allowed millions of Americans to become drug addicts not only from Southern Borders.
