Does poverty cause drug abuse or does drug abuse cause poverty?

My opinion as well. I posted a training article on this that I wrote. It is in the training section of this site under narcotics. Give a read and a vote. It will be published next Friday.

DetSgtDarryl,

Are you trying to give everyone a run for their money? lol

Okay yes, yes no, no....

Yes it’s proven that poverty dose not always cause drug abuse, but they are defiantly more vulnerable to abusing drugs. Also those who use certain kinds of drugs i.e. meth tend to lose everything, in turn causing them to become poverty striking. However not every person who lives in poverty abuses drugs, and not every person who dose drugs becomes poverty stricken....

True, but my point is they low income Americans believe that drug abuse causes poverty. i did a lot of research on it using stats, and all the require avenues. The middle and upper class Americans believe the low income Americans are not doing enough for themselves.

See my point now? There is consenus opinion. I truely believe that they go hand in hand and one doesnt not cause the other.
