Smoking on campus has been an important matter of debate many oppose it and many support it. Tobacco smoking on Francis Marion University (FMU) is not allowed.

College students should avoid drugs What is the drug? Why it should be avoided by all the people, especially college students? The drug is an illegal and often harmful substance (such as heroin, cocaine and marijuana) that people take for pleasure; it is any controlled substance used to alter one 's mind state or for non-medical purposes, without the permission or supervision of a physician. However, the most popular recreational drug in the world is caffeine.
It was about six hours later and we went and got John and he was just like normal again. We walked back to sit with Dave and Susan and they were having such a wonderful time enjoying the music and all of the positive people there. It’s hard to describe what it smelt like at Woodstock. It was a mixture of marijuana and cow manure, and a little bit of armpit because of people not being able to shower or bathe.
What is marijuana?Marijuana is currently illegal in all states except nine, should it be legalized? marijuana among other names, is a psychoactive drug from the Cannabis plant intended for medical or recreational use. The history of marijuana goes back for thousands of years. It was only made illegal in many countries during the 20th century.
They argue that pot is harmless, and state that overdosing on marijuana has led to no deaths (“Drugs of Abuse”, 17). However true this may be, many studies only take into consideration the short-term effects of marijuana. Over a long period of time, marijuana has the capability to destroy students’ chances of completing high school or college, and make it 7 times more likely for them to commit suicide. Indirect deaths are the most common occurrence. That is not to say that the short term effects still aren’t devastating.
The point is not to enable -- let alone encourage -- students to skip these readings or class discussions. A letter sent by the dean of University of Chicago to undergraduate student’s class of 2020 was very concerning and odd to this class and other students in the campus. The letter seems normal until it states that it does not support “so called ‘trigger warnings’ and not condoning the creation of ‘safe spaces’ where individuals can retreat from ideas…” Safe spaces on campus typically describe extracurricular groups that are intended to be havens for historically marginalized students. Most students don’t expect classrooms to be places where they never encounter uncomfortable ideas, but they do reasonably expect campuses to be places where they feel welcome and, yes, safe.
“Just in 2018 there has been 18 school shootings, on average per week” (snopes:How many school shootings have taken place so far in 2018). The incidents that have occurred have been a big impact in people 's lives. Yet no one with power has spoken about the problems regarding the recent shooting. See, there are two main sides of gun control, the side that agrees and the side that doesn’t. People who agree believe that no one should be able to own a gun, or that there should simply be stricter gun control laws.
From Pop Culture to Pot Culture: How The Counterculture of The American "Stoner" Has Affected Society Introduction: In the fifth century Romans made desserts out of marijuana, and used it to ease the pain of childbirth. Just five decades ago John Lennon asked America to "Make Love, Not War," expressing the ideals that made the "Hippie." Only days ago New Jersey has began discussion of legalizing marijuana. Culture is always moving and evolving, being manipulated and changed.
Police Officers are a big and small part of the community whether you see them or not. Police Officers patrol various parts of the cities or towns they are in, but I decided to watch them where ever I could over spring break. I kept a journal in my car and sat at various places I knew police officers in Sapulpa would like to go, and I also took note of previous experiences and encounters with the police. I did not interview or survey any police officers in my research. I decided to observe Police Officers because their views on police brutality would have extreme bias.
In the 1970’s, there was an increasing number of rapes and attempts of rapes on campus from the previous year. Volunteers and students came together to come up with a plan to prevent rapes from happening on campus. Since there were no legislations to provide students protection against rape, students and volunteers teamed up using tactics and strategies to fight back against rape.
Kristi Dosh of Forbes in a 2016 article pointed out that the University of Texas made almost $2 million dollars at home football games from alcohol sales, but those sales were not restricted to premium access areas at the stadium, similar to what other schools do. On the flip side, the University of Minnesota actually lost money in 2012, their first year of selling alcohol at football games, due to the extra security and police members hired for games as well as the cut of the profit that food and drink vendor Aramack Corporation took. The other factor that probably would make the school hesitant to start serving alcohol, is the stigma of drinking surrounding the campus culture. The “Zooniversity of Slamherst” reputation has followed UMass for decades, and over the last few years measures have been made by the university to wipe that reputation away. Free concerts have been offered to students in order to draw them away from “Blarney Blowout” parties in March, and extra police officers have been brought in for events like tailgates and “day drink” parties at off-campus housing
It is undeniable that most college parties contain alcoholic drinks that may increase the chances of being a victim of rape. However, that does not mean there is no way for helpless individuals to determine when a date rape drug has been placed into a drink. While at George Mason University, I hope to investigate this problem and aid in discovering a better and easier way to detect date rape drugs that are unexpectedly placed in beverages. While I may not have been personally affected by this issue, it does not mean that I am not interested in the topic.
For instance, Marijuana is legal by the state of Colorado however; under federal law its still illegal. Jamie Perino of Euflora purchased a bank for about a million dollars, her initial plan is to use is as a dispensary location. If her plan falls through she can use it to charge a fee to the competition to store their money. In Colorado most banks are backed by the federal government, marijuana is illegal by the federal government so they wont allow the banks to
Body Cameras Don 't Work If They Are Not Worn or Not Turned On After Michael Brown, the unarmed black teen who was shot in Ferguson, Missouri, America made it known that we want police officers to wear body cameras. Police Departments responded by saying they want officers to wear body cameras, too. So, if everybody wants the officers to wear body cameras why are there still so many incidents of questionable conduct that are not recorded? According to the Huffington Post, only 2 of the 27 large U.S. cities looked at had all of their officers equipped with body cams.
As for the Stills ' song, many fans viewed it as an antiwar anthem, but he refuted that theory. "It was really four different things intertwined, including the war and the absurdity of what was happening on the Strip," he said, "But I knew I had to skedaddle and headed back to Topanga Canyon, where I wrote my song in about 15 minutes. For me, there was no riot. It was basically a cop dance" (Qtd in Rasmussen). Clearly centering his thoughts were on what was happening to the teenagers in Los Angeles.
