    It depends which drugs. I assume you mean possession of controlled substances, and/or abuse of legally available drugs.

    It's subjective. One person's reaction to a specific chemical may be different from another person's reaction to the same chemical. It is difficult to judge how much of any drug (legal or illegal) impairs a person from the judgement needed to drive, operate machinery in a safe manner, etc.

    In my practice as a social worker I "rate" drugs according to their addictive potential (please note: I have no training in pharmacology). Based on my knowledge, marijuana is less addictive than alcohol, which is less addictive than cocaine, which is less addictive than OxyContin. I would take a patient's personal medical and drug use history into account when evaluating their dependence upon such medications.

    Different drugs have different effects. Marijuana will give most people slow reactions and red eyes, slowed speech also. take crack and you may have a person that is jittery and bugged out eyes. Meth will speed everything up, usually makes people hyper, some people will stay awake for days while using meth. Just depends some drugs are downers and some are uppers

    Depends solely on the drug, different drugs affect different parts of the body/ organs. For indtants you have stimulants which cause an increase: rapid breathing, increased heart rate etc. Whereas depressants are the opposite.
