The study by the National Bureau of Drug Abuse in Washington, endorses that drugs can cause damage as anxiety, melancholy, social abuse, psychotic episodes and suicidal tendencies. The more drug is used, more urgently it is needed.
The big news story has come with the confirmation of the request for divorce of Angelina Jolie from her husband Brad Pitt (pictured) after fourteen years of marriage. The main reason “the welfare of the family”, gives a first clue about the causes of the decision, more closely tied to terms of coexistence and family unity than to third parties in the live of Brad Pitt.
According to some media as the Daily Mail, the 41 years old actress has lost patience on how Pitt was related to their children. To Angelina Jolie family has always been above everything, including her work, a way of living that was not shared by her husband. According to a source close to the couple, quoted by the Daily Mail, Brad Pitt had a problem of character for his addiction to drugs and alcohol, something that Jolie did not see with good eyes, especially when Pitt’s anger had their children as victims. Rumors about the separation of one of the most solid couples in Hollywood came from afar. One of the best known moments of crisis was Angelina’s anger when she learned that Pitt had called his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, after the death of her mother.
The divorce process can be very complicated, as Angelina and Brad signed a prenuptial agreement according to which, in case of divorce for infidelity of one of the parties, the ‘infidel’ relinquish custody of the six children of the couple. The actress wants the custody of the children, so Pitt would only have the legal right to see them. US media speak of an expensive divorce close to 480 million dollars. “I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix”, wrote Allen Ginsberg.
