A topic that long seems to have been up for debate is whether Christian’s are able to smoke weed and still be considered to be walking the righteous path of our Lord. Well, just the same with any other well-known argument, there are always two sides to every opinion.

Well, maybe it’s because the crowd is getting younger, and selfies are at the center stage of it all. So are club drugs. Unlike decades ago when clubbing was all about music and alcohol, teens and young adults of the day now have easy access to club...

Alcoholism is simply just being addicted to alcohol, which is a drug itself, whereas drug addiction is an addiction to pretty much everything else that is substance-related, such as heroin, methamphetamines, prescription pills, etc. Both drug addiction and alcoholism are substance use disorders, and unfortunately, both are very...
