In what way are these drugs bad? like - what kinds of effects would they have that would make him feel badly?

I think you're right about self-medicating. He was diagnosed with ADD years ago (Grade 9 I think) & at that point, he was using weed & the doctor said that ADD kids often self-medicate with weed.

At that time, she prescribed I think dexidrine or something (long time ago) & after a while he decided to stop taking it - that was after he'd gotten extremely drunk & his friends had called me to get him & instead I took him straight to Emerg. The fact that he stopped taking it then made me think that he'd been getting a buzz from it & was afraid of abusing it.

It's been a LONG trip !
