Mythology and Morpheus “ T he most important goddesses of many cultures are closely associated with intoxicating plants and gardens of delight in which grow the sacred fruits and herbs of what is variously termed knowledge, immortality or paradise…. Much more evident however is the tradition that regards women as inferior to men, and drugs as dangerous substances and artificial paradises.” Sisters of the Extreme :Women Writing on the Drug Experience Palmer and Horowitz

Drug use is often ritualistic and varies according to the context of use and drugs available

There are significant and different consequences of illegal drug use by young women who are mothers

Drug use by women can act as a replacement lover, they can fall under The Spell of Morpheus

While SOME drug use for arbitrary reasons is demonised and the war against drug users continues , interventions including criminal prosecutions and treatments may outweigh any social good intended and inhibit any kind of rational progress in drug education or safe use of substances by young women in any context and in any culture
