Quick Write - Happy Pill
It might sound like a great idea to some - happiness is the most sought-after feeling in the world, so much so that many people do strange things - like starting to take deadly illegal drugs - in an attempt to replicate this feeling. But what if there really were a drug you could to take that created this feeling in you exactly? I don't know if I would approve of such a drug being legalized. One of the things that distinguishes humans from other animals is that we keep progressing and improving quality of life over time. Even in my (a teenager's) lifetime, things have changed dramatically. I feel like if a "happy pill" were legalized, people who take it would start to be satisfied with the way things are, not only in society as a whole, but also in their personal lives. People would stop trying to be better, and I think that's dangerous.
