Now-a-days there are drugs, specifically made for exploitation in terms of money, sex, mind control etc. In turn the person becomes addictive soon and then there are people who use them for all purposes. To name a few, Opium, Morphine, Heroin, Cocaine, Cannabis, Marijuana, Hashish, Brown sugar etc. Few of the drugs are injected directly into the blood, eat or smell it through their nose. This makes them intoxicated. For the intoxication of the spirit too
