What is the rap?

"The drugs, the drugs  are bad,
The drugs , the drugs , the drugs are horrible
Because once you start,
you won't stop
Exit? The exit is a difficult option
Cause doesn't have any solution
But if you don't start
You won't need them ever
So, change your mind
And be responsible
"The drugs are bad,
"The drugs, the drugs  are bad,
The drugs , the drugs , the drugs are bad
