I knew it had been a diary of teenage girl, Alice, who was a drug addict. Many of my friends and people I knew have read this book and they gave me the general idea of the book. Everyone had told me that this was a true story and a real diary. I also heard from a friend that Alice attempts suicide. 4. From reading this book I learned new

For several decades drugs have been one of the major problems of society. There have been escalating costs spent on the war against drugs and countless dollars spent on rehabilitation, but the problem still exists. Not only has the drug problem increased but drug related problems are on the rise. Drug abuse is a killer in our country. Some are born addicts(crack babies), while others become users. The result of drug abuse is thousands of addicts in denial. The good news is the Uni

With all the hype of payoffs to IOC members in the media today, it might sound as if that is the greatest threat to internataional sport. The real threat to the Olympics and international sport is the use of dangerous drugs which enhance the performance of professional and Olympic athletes around the world. Given the great number of athletes who use performance-enhancing drugs and evade detection, it might seem as if officials are turning a blind eye to the problem. Officials are in fact tr

Hello, class. My name is Scott Gulas and today I will be debating in support of the opinion that "Illegal drugs should remain illegal." I feel that this point of view benefits the entire population of the United States of America. Do you want a beer; how bout a joint? I bet this pill will cheer you up…sound familiar? It's as if these phrases are present in our daily conversations from teenage years throughout our existence. Drugs affect the lives of everyone in the United Sta

The legalization of drugs; a risk not worth taking Arguments concerning the repeal of the 18th amendment, drug prohibition, have not changed much over the last seventy years; the questions are the same, the concerns are the same, and the policy is the same; the way it should be. Both sides are in a constant battle over the legality of drugs: Proponents of drug prohibition insist that the effects on society would be disastrous- wide-spread addiction, increased crime - Opponents of drug prohibi

Based on the expierience and knowledge I have toward drugs, drug use, and the effects of, I have conclued that legalizing non-medicinal drugs would be be wrong. The capability these days to aquire drugs are very high. It's now possible to mail order drugs, get them in parties, cities, rural areas, malls, street sidewalks, anywhere, really. Therefore why should you need them to become legal. For several decades drugs have been one of the major problems of society. There have been esca

I resolve that the use of drugs in our country should be legalized. Most illegal drugs are just as dangerous and harmful as legal ones. The wide spread propaganda that illegal drugs are "deadly poisons" is a hoax. There is little or no medical evidence of long term ill effects from sustained, moderate consumption of uncontaminated marijuana, cocaine, or heroine. These drugs have been consumed for centuries and if they caused any chronic progressive or disabling diseases, they would have sh

COCAINE Cocaine is a drug obtained from the coca plant. It is used medically as an anesthetic and as an illegal drug. It is mostly produced in countries in South America such a Columbia and Mexico. It is also produced in many other countries including the United States. The traditional method of cocaine use is to chew the leaves of the coca plant, giving a mild stimulation. Powder cocaine which is the most popular today is usually inhaled or injected into a vein and provides a lower h

Cocaine is a highly addictive stimulant that mainly affects the brain. Pure cocaine was first extracted from the leaf of the Erythroxylon coca bush, which grows mainly in Peru and Bolivia. Today, cocaine is a Schedule II drug, meaning it can be administered by a doctor for medical uses, such as a local anesthetic. There are two basic forms of cocaine, hydrochloride salt and the "freebase." The hydrochloride salt form of cocaine dissolves in water and can be taken by vein or in the nose.

Cocaine-a powerful central nervous system stimulant-has been a big problem for the Drug Enforcement Agency(DEA) in south Florida since the 1960s. Drug cartels ship coke to the United States frequently, Miami being the main port. Cocaine has several nicknames: C, cream, snow, powder, and blow. This drug doesn't only affect the user but can also affects who ever is around the user. Cocaine isn't just a problem in south Florida, but it's a problem worldwide. Through an investigation a sol
