What is a Drug?

In this episode we lay the foundation for subsequent podcasts by considering the question, “What is a Drug?”

We acknowledge the negative connotations associated with the word, discuss some official definitions and come up with a comprehensive, all-encompassing definition. We take note of sociocultural, medical, legal and political factors behind understanding issues around drug use and conclude with guidelines on how we will approach the term in future podcasts.
