‘Under Portugal 's new regime, people found guilty of possessing small amounts of drugs are sent to a panel consisting of a psychologist, social worker and legal adviser for appropriate treatment instead of jail.’ (Maia Szalavitz).
Legalizing drugs has been a hot debate topic since the human mind has been effected by outsider chemicals and the topic still lingers. Today; from almost every political view, ethical group, social class, race, gender and age, arguments are thrown out there whether supporting or denouncing the war on drugs. There are three main benefits of legalizing drugs such as; it would be for the benefit of all society because the government could control the drug traffic the economy would develop with such a huge and new area of marketing and also by not splurging government money on useless wars, there must be freedom in democracies, and finally it would help science, art, general knowledge and personal journeys.
Hitler was the main aggressor during 1939 who everyone appeased to, who is infamously known for his rise to power, his persecution of Jews, and his attacks on the world to dominate, that killed so many. Neville Chamberlain, the British Prime Minister, believed in the policy of appeasement and appeased Hitler at the Munich Conference which eventually lead to the start of World War II. The Western Powers responded to aggression with appeasement, and in 1939 the world was plunged into World War II, proving to the world that collective security is a better response to aggression.
“Imagine yourself in the pitch dark, after two or three days of wet, cold, hunger, sleeplessness, staggering down a trench, knee-deep in mud, carrying various burdens that almost equal your own body-weight” (Ellis, 48). This was the everyday life of the typical soldier involved in the World War I trench warfare. During WWI trench warfare was common. It began in September 1914 with the German army digging themselves in for a battle that would last what seemed like a life time for the soldiers involved. Soldiers on either side alike lived in deplorable conditions. They lived in these dirt holes that they soon called their homes. They lacked the means for proper sanitation, food, clothing, medical attention, rest and much more.
The United States had been in World War I, a conflict that threw the world into a series of conflict. The munitions that brought such destruction as the soldiers did themselves; in the United States. During this time production plants popped up everywhere across the U.S. in an attempt to meet the product demand of the war.Like many places around the world one small town was changed by the need for munitions. Morgan, New Jersey in that October of 1918 would feel the horrors being delivered overseas when a massive explosion rocked the central coastline, plunging it into a raging inferno.On Oct. 4, 1918, explosions rocked the T.A. Gillespie Company Shell Loading Plant in New Jersey, killing scores of people and destroying the largest munitions factory in the world. The T.A.

From as early as December 1915, Australian, British and Canadian miners had been digging an intricate tunnel system under the enemy’s front line. A seven day preliminary bombardment was also conducted to put pressure on the enemy before the infantry assault. At 3:10 a.m. on the 7th June 1917 massive explosions erupted. The Allies advanced quickly although the German resistance of this battle was not fully extinguished until the 11th of June 1917.
The Berlin Airlift paper will focus on the prelude to conflict. In 1948, the Western Powers (Great Britain, France, and US) plans to rebuild Germany varied from that of the Soviet Union. There would be no compromise and as a result, Stalin wanted them out of Berlin. In early 1948, tensions between the once former Allies were at their peak. On April 9, 1948, Stalin ordered all American Military personnel maintaining communications equipment out of the Soviet controlled Berlin. On June 22nd, they placed armed guards aboard all trains, attached a Soviet locomotive and towed it back to Western Germany. On June 24, 1948, all land and water access to West Berlin was cut off by the Soviets and no more supplies from the west was allowed in. Where
Prescription drugs nowadays are the only solution for stopping pain, feeling better, and getting high. However, prescription drugs are very dangerous and that is why they are prescribed by doctors because using them can cause death and mostly addiction. Prescription drugs are used by millions of people all over the U.S. and the number is growing yearly. Comparing to the past, the number of prescription drugs’ users is growing hugely. There are some states illegalized many types of drugs and that leaves us with less numbers of deaths in those states than the other states that legalized those many types of
Cocaine is the one of the oldest major drugs of constantly natural origin. Benzoyl-methyl-ecgonine (chemical compound of cocaine) originates in the lower altitudes of the eastern slopes of th eAndes, or the highlands depending on the species grown, in particular in Bolivia,Colombia and Peru. However, coca is a relatively easy plant to grow. Over time the powdery drug formed from a plant in western south america became almost iconic; popularized by people and up and coming companies. In 1884 Cocaine was Praised as Miracle Cure by Sigmund Freud The American medical community embraces cocaine as a miracle cure for a variety of ailments, including, ironically, addiction to morphine and alcohol. The New York Times reports on the new wonder drug,
It was a long night, last night, on September 7th, 1940, when the Germans bombed
Cocaine is one of the most widely abused, addictive and deadly drugs in the world. Since cocaine’s origin tracing back to the Inca civilization in the Andes Mountains of South America, to its mass production and trafficking today, cocaine has built quite the reputation. However, amongst these uses, forms and increased availability of cocaine lies a detrimental impact, the damaging effects cocaine has on the human body. The increased exposure, use and production of cocaine creates a difficult problem for those in the fight to reduce the drug's presence. Similarly, the everlasting effects of cocaine can be felt and seen much long after its first introduction to the human body.
After the Civil War many soldiers used drugs to still or reduce the pain from injuries. Often times the use resulted into addiction. “By 1895, around three percent of the population of the United States was addicted to morphine”.
Fifty years after the initiation of the UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, and 40 years after President Nixon launched the US government’s war on drugs; fundamental reforms in national and global drug control policies are urgently needed. Vast expenditures on criminalization and repressive measures directed at producers, traffickers and consumers of illegal drugs have clearly failed to effectively curtail supply or consumption. Apparent victories in eliminating one source or trafficking organization are negated almost instantly by the emergence of other sources and traffickers. Repressive efforts directed at consumers impede public health measures to reduce HIV/AIDS, overdose fatalities and other harmful consequences of drug use. Government expenditures on futile supply reduction strategies and incarceration displace more cost-effective and evidence-based investments in demand and harm reduction. The international drug control system was founded with two core goals. First, it sought to reduce the negative health consequences generated by drugs. Second, it promised to guarantee access to essential medicines. Neither of these aims has been achieved. To the contrary, drug policy emphasizing criminal justice has generated new social and health
