[bocfvnob] Reviewing self-medicating

Hypothesize that a large portion of recreational drug use, including alcohol, is self-medication for mental health.  As pharmaceutical medications for mental health improve, are people's such self-medication regimens being updated rationally?  (Rational requires a cost-benefit analysis.)  There may also be new recreational drugs being developed.  Is there significant delay in the speed of information dispersal that could be improved with technology?  There may be stigma of taking a pharmaceutical mental health drug, compared to a recreational drug.
