Rapunzel requires a certain dosage of drugs to help with her pain and troubles. However, in an effort to minimize the annoyance, Axel would double and triple Rapunzel’s drugs. “Axel lately shot the drug into her neck, at least ten times every day, to keep her from sobbing and clawing at the itchy scales of her fin, but the street junk was watered down and costly.” (Schaffert 188). Axel shot these drugs into Rapunzel at least ten times a day to avoid the inconvenience of Rapunzel.
The Cocaine Epidemic The beginning of the crack cocaine epidemic began in the early 1970’s when crack cocaine was considered a fashionable drug for entertainers and businesspeople. Cocaine helped users stay awake and it gave them energy for the day. It was popular for businessmen or anyone with a stressful job to take. It even spread to colleges as we see in most colleges the amount of students experimenting with cocaine increased tenfold from 1970 to 1980. By the late 1970’s Colombian drug cartels began smuggling massive amounts of cocaine into major United States cities, primarily Miami and New York City.
You didn’t ask questions because you thought you knew this person and you could use some extra cash. Although this is your first time ever being in trouble with the law, you are facing some serious jail time. Unfortunately, this is the case for many first-time non-violent offenders as a result of mandatory minimum laws. What are mandatory minimum sentences and what brought about the start of them?

The worst things came from this peer pressure. I have an experience and I know how it could be through my friend’s story. Peers influenced my friend to not go school and be a school hater student, go to parties, and date someone. After her parents knew that, she got into much trouble from her parents and from her friends.
The abuser might have issues in which they take certain medications, or overdose on drugs; another might be an alcoholic. This can make a person very irrational and they can be angered easily. Because of this, they might take any bottled up anger out on their significant other, or children. “There are various possibilities for why a drink or drug habit is linked to violent behavior in relationships, but it is rarely the case that substance abuse is the only factor that precipitates violence, which is why seeking help with alcohol and drug misuse does not necessarily mark the end of domestic abuse, with many partners remaining abusive when abstinent.” (Substance
Conformity and reserved behavior was the norm in that time period. However the film goes a bit further to show the transition out of that period, and how teenagers became more adventurous and expressive. This issue of rebellious teenagers taking more freedom relates to the current events issue of teenagers and their freedom on the internet. In the film, because of the freedom and lack of supervision, some characters make stupid decisions that could potentially hurt them. For example, Rizzo has a pregnancy scare, and her friend Frenchie drops out of high school.
Even though this was a fun, and good bonding experience, most people did not catch on to the meaning of the song. The Macarena is actually named after a woman, and discusses her actions of cheating on her boyfriend while he is away in the Army. The words of this song not only portrays morally unjust actions, but it also depicts the woman as portraying a sexualized identity through the way she tells men she knows they want her, but then winds up only teasing them. The good news about the Macarena and its lyrics is that although the Macarena uses sexual words to describe the woman in the song, it does not necessarily sexualize women’s bodies throughout the dance. In fact, the dance is so simple, that women who do participate are keeping themselves safe from the exposure of other dances that may be portraying women as sexual objects.
People of all ages can get it and a significant sign of diagnosing the condition is experiencing two or more seizures in a 24 hour period (“The Epilepsies” 2016). Although there is no cure for epilepsy, the condition can be controlled with anticonvulsants drugs. I personally have prior knowledge to the condition from my AP Biology class. I immediately thought of my senior year of high school, when I first was taught about epilepsy. My friend Nadine showed us a documentary which showed a old man who would suddenly fall out of consicouness during his daily tasks; I remember this documentary very well because it was a scary sight for me

(Huxley, 1998) Society should be against mood enhancing drugs because it alters their state of mind and effects the natural way of dealing with emotional situations. There are drugs that people take to alter their mood; some in a good way others may be bad.
Imagine finding a ransom note one day, telling you your son was taken and you must follow the directions given to get him back. Sadly, that is exactly what happened to Jacob Franks and Flora Franks. Murder has always been a big issue in big cities like Chicago. People are shot or stabbed in the heat of the moment, but not as common is a planned murder. There are many different reasons people kill other people, greed, anger, drugs, revenge, even self-defense, but the reason Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb killed Bobby Franks was for a completely different reason; to see if they could get away with it.
