In this blog post we look at when to use dragged and when to use drug.
The past tense of the verb "drag" is "dragged." "Dragged" is the past tense form of the verb "drag," which means to pull or haul something along, often with difficulty or effort.
For example, "He dragged the heavy box across the room." This sentence is in the past tense, and it refers to an action that was completed in the past.
"Drug" is not the past tense of "drag."
"Drug" is a noun that refers to a substance that has a physiological effect when ingested or introduced into the body.
It can also be used as a verb to mean to administer a drug to someone or something. For example, "She was addicted to drugs and needed help to overcome her addiction."
Here are some examples to illustrate the difference between "dragged" and "drug":
