99% of people who take drugs do it for the explicit purpose of feeling pleasure.

Many are fleeing pain*, everything from herniated discs to manic depression. The Pandora's box that gave us the opioid scourge wasn't opened by hedonists; it came from cynical pharmaceutical companies and willfully ignorant doctors purportedly treating legitimate physical suffering. And it created a huge group who take drugs because they can't stop. 

*One could argue that the absence of pain is a type of pleasure, but I don't think you meant this.
