Alcohol related accidents are any ‘accident’ that occurred whilst under the usage of alcohol.

The main chemical marijuana is known for is delta-9- tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Many users do not understand that injecting this inducing chemical has both short and long-term impacts on the brain. Along with its stimulant, depressant, and hallucinogenic properties come negative impacts on the brain. THC acts on brain cell receptors that ordinarily react to natural TCH like chemicals already found in our brains, and causes those receptors to work in overdrive, causing these parts of the brain to overreact. A study done by the National Center for Biotechnology Information compared the short-term memory and cognitive processing speed of people who used marijuana in the past 4 weeks in relation to those who had never consumed the drug1 The recent and current marijuana users remembered less and processed information and instruction much slower than those who have never smoked.

Drug use can lead to someone being addicted. Addiction is a brain disease that makes people obsessed with doing drugs, even when they really want to. This causes them to have terrible consequences for their health and personal life. There are at least two ways drugs work in the brain: imitating the brain’s natural chemical messengers, and over stimulating the “reward circuit” of the brain. Drugs like heroin and marijuana can “fool” our receptors, lock onto them, and activate the nerve cells.
For example, most of these people would say Marijuana is a gateway drug. Which means some users who choose to ingest marijuana into their body over a long period of time tend to build a tolerance for the drug, which would later lead to the desire to try new drugs to peak their high again. Due to the stereotypical view of what most people think about this drug and how the perception of a lazy, unmotivated “smoker” sticks with most americans is sad. These same people will say Marijuana users will not only become highly addicted to the drug, but they will also more than likely drive impaired on the substance itself. “ ASAM contends that legalization would increase use, thereby increasing the negative effects of use such as addiction, drugged driving, and illicit use by teenagers.”
At least three receptor subtypes (i.e., μ, κ, and δ) are primarily responsible for the pharmacological effects. The majority of morphine clinical effect has been attributed to the interaction with the μ receptor- which are mainly located in the brain and in the gastro-intestinal tract. The activation of the μ receptors in the brain is responsible for analgesia, sedation, respiratory depression and euphoria. Hypoventilation my favorite ipoxiemia that is definitely an unwanted event in AMI patients. On the other hand, the activation of the opioid receptors widely represented in the myenteric plexus and the intestines may affect the gastro-intestinal tract physiological functions.

Purpose: Cocaine seems to be the most addictive drug out of all the abusive drugs. This concept is demonstrated in an extreme experiment on lab animals were willingly consumed the drug after it was purposely given to them. The article argues that abnormalities in human brain, before being exposed to cocaine, could be associated with a higher exposure to addicting drugs. In this experiment the authors decided to study how it is possible that some malfunctioning parts of the brain could encourage the dopamine system to promote cocaine self administration. The researchers used tomography to examine the brains of different participants with different drug use history; some of the participants ranged from being acute users to chronic users.
They look so much like the real thing. The end lights up as you inhale and as you exhale a puff of vapor smoke-like substance comes out. Though e-cigarettes may present less health concerns than traditional cigarets by consuming the nicotine through vaping rather than smoke and burning they are still very harmful for the younger generation.
