ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Drugs are substances that people take to change the way their body works. Some drugs have medicinal uses and are prescribed by a doctor to help people get better if they are sick. Other drugs have a bad effect on the body and can make people feel very sick or do dangerous things. It is important to only take drugs that a doctor prescribes, because taking drugs that are not prescribed can be very dangerous and make you really sick.
