This piece shows the negative consequences that drugs can have on a person. Drug use has been viewed as a criminal issue, but the image clearly illustrates that drug abuse is a healthcare issue. The blue undertones of the artwork help mold the attitude of the average methadone clinic. It is important to advocate for methadone clinics to stop the war on drugs. Health care should include rehabilitation for drug abuse, and legislation should, and is, being passed to legalize and decriminalize marijuana, so that fewer people are convicted for nonviolent drug possession charges.
