English term or phrase: other drugs, especially marijuana
Drugs
The use of antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills has increased significantly over the past ten years. Most of the prescription drugs in this category, like Prozac and Paxil, work by altering the brain chemicals that control our moods. Despite the fact that they are not legal, other drugs, especially marijuana, are used for their mind-numbing qualities. Herbal supplements like melatonin and St. John's wort are also said to act as relaxants.
大麻也是一种药吗?
想把drugs译成“毒品”,但与上下文显然不一致。因为文章是在说药物有助于减压。

加拿大政府日前通過立法,允許重症末期還有慢性病患得以使用或是種植大麻,作為醫療用途。這項法律在30日正式生效,也讓加拿大成為全球第一個允許大麻藥化用,資助藥用大麻栽種的國家。
