And even though some physicians recommend its use, they could still be arrested and prosecuted for “aiding and abetting” (Hoffman & Weber, 2010) against the federal law. But for those states that have legalized it, patients could qualify, with or without a card, and be able to use marijuana for certain medical conditions. Many physicians do not know what stance to take on this issue because even if it is legal within the state, they do not want to risk getting their license taken away
So when I grow up my parents always told me not to do drugs and that they are bad for you. Now as a kid you don’t really understand the reasoning behind it, but you listen to your adult figure regardless. But as I got older I realized that people would still use drugs even though it’s illegal. The government and public has a problem with those drugs . Government let Marijuna be prohibited to citizens only based on they health issues.
Unlike tobacco, there are no chemicals in marijuana that cause a "physical" addiction to the substance; rather, it 's the sensation that you feel from smoking weed that is "psychologically" addictive. While this doesn 't necessarily make it any easier for someone to quit smoking marijuana (and sometimes it can even be harder), it 's important to know the difference. People don 't crave marijuana because they "need" it; they crave it because they "want" it. With this being the case, it 's more of a psychological problem and a solution has to be approached from that angle.
The campaign’s message about marijuana heavily exaggerates the negative effects of marijuana in an attempt to scare kids away from marijuana. However, exaggerating the consequences of marijuana actually lowers the campaign’s credibility. When a kid sees or hears a claim by the campaign that they deem ridiculous and fabricated, they might disregard the rest of the campaign’s claims and believe consuming marijuana has no negative consequences. The main point of the Just Say No campaign just tells kids to say no to marijuana, which is not effective because kids will naturally want to do the opposite. Finally, a meta-analysis of twenty controlled studies assessing the effects of the D.A.R.E program on students concluded that the D.A.R.E program did not cause a statistically significant decrease in the number of kids who participate in underage drinking and smoking marijuana, but rather there was a slight increase (Bai and Pan 7).
One of the most known difference is that e-cigarettes do not contain tobacco. This is why most people choose vaping over smoking because the tobacco causes tar buildup, while the e-cigarettes do not do that. Also, e-cigarettes contain much less nicotine than cigarettes and cigars; “Nicotine is a highly addictive drug found in e-cigarettes. Withdrawal symptoms can happen when you quit using e-cigarettes. This can make it hard to quit using them.
These people claim that smoking marijuana is harmful to the lungs and brain development of teenagers. Cigarettes have the same, if not greater, damaging effect on human lungs yet the government does not infringe upon Americans’ right to take such health risks. Although there have been no scientific study to validate that smoking marijuana damages brain development, a simple resolution would be to make the legal age for smoking and possessing marijuana in the mid 20’s when the brain is completely developed. The argument of the dangers of marijuana can also be made for the opposing side. Illegal and unregulated marijuanna posing far more dangers to people than if marijuana was regulated by the government.
The banning books: Praised or Disapproved. Many books have been banned all around the world despite that people still think that books should not be banned because of the content inside even if the book has a good message. Books such as Harry Potter have been banned for it use of magic and witchcraft. But still others think that the lesson is more important. Banning books have pros and cons and can be seen either way.
The Greasers did not have a curfew. On the other hand, not having a curfew could lead into drugs, and gangs. The Greasers did not have a curfew, and they attend drugs and having gand fights. When teens don’t accept a curfew, they will stay out as behindhand as possible, which leads to breaking the laws with friends. The article states that “Cities and towns should have curfews.
A weakness of this research is that it does not look at the data in longer periods of time, which can help us see if there were other events or causes to the approval of the smoking ban and the decrease in smokers’ consumption. In reading Campbell and Ross’s “The Connecticut Crack down on Speeding,” they shared five factors that can threat the validity of a study: history, testing, maturation, regression and instability (Lecture, 2018). This study doesn’t observe maturation or test other things that can attribute to the increase in support of the smoking ban and the reduction of tobacco purchases. This study also lacks a control group, which could have been neighboring countries to compare with Italy. However, in just focusing on one country,
There are on average 52,404 deaths in the US each year. This should be eye awakening, but yet the government doesn’t care. Required drug screenings would help lower the use of drugs. Senator David Vitter argues, “Requiring screenings would give addicts a key incentive to seek help so that they can once again be healthy, support their own families, and make positive contributions to our society”(Welfare drug testing 2). If people are truly concerned about getting the help they need, welfare, than they need to be serious enough to get help from drugs.

Another concern about banning weapons from people with severe mental illness is that the policies cause the population to develop harmful ideas about individuals with severe mental illness (McGinty et al., 2013. Consequently, people with severe mental illness do not go into treatment (McGinty et al., 2013). Misconceptions about severe mental illness are not the only contributors to stigma; labels can also have a large effect on how the general population feels about those with severe mental
In 2007 Electronic cigarettes were introduced to the U.S.September 2008 the World Health Organization (WHO) claims that it does not consider the electronic cigarette to be a legitimate smoking cessation aid and demands that marketers immediately remove from their materials any suggestions that the WHO considers electronic cigarettes safe and effective. By August 2011 a Study published in the journal "Addiction" provides strong evidence that electronic cigarettes are successfully used by many smokers to quit smoking or cut down substantially on the number of cigarettes they smoke, and that e-cigarettes are successfully helping many ex-smokers to remain off cigarettes(CASAA, 2012).The Electronic cigarettes became popular because of many factors . One of those factors is the loss in popularity of the traditional tobacco cigarette , the health issues caused by the cigarettes and the media’s involvement in anti smoking ads and movements greatly influenced this change. Many ex smokers started to use electronic cigarettes as a safer alternative to the traditional cigarettes that way they can still get their nicotine fix which is the substance that is responsible for making the tobacco cigarettes so
Reality of Anti-Depressant Use It may startle you to know that of every mental disorder in the United States of America, anxiety disorders are the most common (“Anxiety”). “Anxiety is often a health response to uncertainty and danger, but constant worry and nervousness can be a sign of another trouble, internal rather than external” (“Generalized Anxiety Disorder: Toxic Worry” 1).
