drugs are awesome … ???

I need a clarification on thought process behind it. I can’t tell this to my kids. I couldn’t say about some people (e.g. bad historical figures) that they are/were awesome. Maybe a podcast, maybe a book. Pls. refer me somewhere unless you can explain it further in here …. because I can’t , so far, imagine saying Hitler was awesome that is why so many people followed etc …. no no no ???
