Herbs and safety

I think herbs, like any drug should be used by those with the knowledge to use the herb safely. In many cases, the herb is going to cause you less problems than the prescription medication, but some people could be allergic to an herb and it could kill them, just like the wrong dosage of medication can. The number one thing that needs to be looked at is if the herb is as habit forming as the medication, this is an epidemic America is facing today. Many people are taking medications and abusing them as well as leaning on them as something they "have to have". If any herb would stop this from happening, the world could be a much better place. What are your thoughts?
