Compare the term drug with the term medicine.

A: The term drug and the term medicine both describe types of drugs. However, these types of drugs are very different. For example, the term drug is any substance that causes a change in a person’s physical or psychological state, whereas the term medicine is any drug used to cure, prevent, or treat illness or discomfort.
