Most concern for drug abuse among drug educators focuses on illicit, youth oriented chemicals such as marijuana and hallucinogens. Even though this is so, one knows that a major source of drug abuse stems directly from the prescription pads of medical doctors. Even perfectly justifiable prescriptions for physical and psychical maladies are filled and then used for purposes that damage and destroy human potential. An effort needs to be made in drug education aimed at physicians, working toward dealing with the problem of abuse of over the counter, licit drugs.
