Illicit Recreational Drug Use Is Abuse 

Recreational drugs are a classification of non-ingestible dangerous petrochemicals, poisonous plants, and purified drug compounds that interfere with body, emotions, and/or mental functions. Recreational drugs include cocaine, steroids, opioids, psilocybin, LSD, marijuana, CBD, etc....

As with many drugs, illicit recreational use of petrochemicals and plants and plant parts that are drugs and drug compounds may be inappropriately used by someone as intoxicants to impair physical, emotional, and mental function.

Rule of Thumb
"The illicit use of recreational drugs, plants, and plant parts that are drugs have no correlation to use, study, of practice as herbs within herbalism and herbal medicine, since drugs are toxic and do not promote health, healing, or support well-being.

Recreational drugs are incorrectly used, by self-medication, for pain relief or to incorrectly substitute the non-functionality of the body, including emotional and mental states, often with unsafe self-treatment of self-diagnosed or physician diagnosed diseases and conditions.

Self-medication and self-treatment (aka. treatment with self-care) are colloquial slang used by the medical industry and government agencies which refers to non-prescribed recreational use of drugs and recreational drug use. Someone recreationally uses drugs for unapproved uses and without a prescription as a false way to promote health, wellness, and well-being with quackery.

Drug Use Does Not Heal 

Someone, without appropriate guidance, may confuse physical, emotional, and mental impairment from recreational drugs and recreational drug use with pseudoscience concepts of mind-alteration, getting "high", and psychoactive quackery, but recreational drugs and recreational drug use only promote a wrong view and false feelings of well-being by impairing physical, emotional, and mental functioning.

For example: when someone uses opioids recreationally or recreational cannabinoids, such as CBD, the person may wrongly think that the drugs make them feel better and heal them, but instead the drugs are actually impairing bodily functions of pain signals or other signals from issues with non-functionality of the body, emotions and mind. 

Oftentimes, drugs of any kind may be incorrectly prescribed by a physician for recreational off-label use. Recreational use of drugs, known as self-medication, is wrongly endorsed by government agencies and the medical industry for inappropriate self-treatment, for example, by using pharmaceuticals wrongly and incorrectly medicating with cannabis (hemp seed is not to be confused with hemp and cannabis flowers, leaves, and cannabinoid derivatives).

Recreational Drug Use is Not Medicine

Some recreational drugs, such as opioids, may be alternately used correctly as approved drugs with a prescription for non-healing medicine within the pathology practices of allopathy and 'alternative medicine'. Contrarily, some medical drugs and intoxicants may be used recreationally for the intoxication effects of physical, emotional, and mental impairment, which is not medicine.

Sharing Drugs is Recreational Abuse 

Recreational drug use is not recommended for healing due to a lack of benefits for health, since recreational drugs are not food and dietary supplements.

Recreational Drugs are Not Herbalism

Although some recreational drugs, and intoxicants, and associated compounds may come from non-ingestible and/or poisonous plants, they are not herbs, and their uses are not found within herbalism.

Microdosing with Magic Mushrooms and Hemp and Cannabis Flowers and Leaves is Not Herbalism 

Recreational drugs have no benefits for supporting, maintaining, or promoting health, wellness, and well-being, because they lack nutrients and their unique plant constituents are ineffective, since they only impair physical, emotional, and mental functioning.

Recreational Drugs are Different than Non-Drug Intoxicants

Beer and Tobacco are Common Intoxicants Lacking Health Benefits 

Recreational drugs are not to be confused with intoxicants such as tobacco and alcoholic beverages, which have no medicinal value nor drug uses since they offer a false view of personal well-being and only impair physical, emotional, and mental functioning with an overall detriment to health.
