According to Webster’s, Addiction is defined as-“the compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal; broadly: persistent compulsive use of a substance known by the user to be harmful”.
 
Legal and Illegal drugs that cause addiction.

We accept addiction as taking many forms; alcohol, drug, cigarettes, sexual, gambling and food.  For the purposes of our discussion, however, we are addressing only the addiction related to drugs.  We have many types of both legal and illegal drugs that cause addiction.  Some of the illegal drugs relating to addiction are: cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, opium, ecstasy, marijuana, and hashish. 

Legal drugs that sedate stimulate and change perception.
We will discuss only the legal drugs that can cause addiction.  They are many and wide spread.  There are drugs that relax or sedate, drugs that increase energy and drugs that change the state of awareness or perception.  For our purposes we are concentrating on drugs that sedate and drugs that stimulate.  The legal stimulation drugs are amphetamines with brands names such as, Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta, Vyvanse.   Keep in mind that caffeine is also a stimulant and considered a drug which is why it is forbidden from use by certain religions.  Legal sedation drugs are: alcohol, opiates, tranquilizers and morphine.
For the purposes of our discussion, we are concentrating on the legal sedation drug from the opiate family.  Some of these are as follows: Oxycodone, OxyContin, Percodan and Percocet.  The street names for Oxycodone and OxyContin are Blues or Roxy’s.
