stop the rest of drug abuse". I have several issues with this statement: first, the simple fact that many heroin and cocaine users used marijuana first does not conclude that the latter is the result of the first. Correlation is not causality. Bierson’s vehement argument against marijuana alone become suspect, as most of these heroin and cocaine abusers had also previously used alcohol and tobacco. According to government surveys, a conservative estimate of 80 million American have tried marijuana in their life, and 20 million admit to using it recently; if marijuana were truly a gateway drug, we would see a higher percentage of regular users. Instead we are seeing an even smaller percentage of

tobacco gives a person pleasure and euphoria by increasing the levels of dopamine within the reward circuits in the brain. It causes a discharge of epinephrine which stimulates the central nervous system and endocrine glands, which causes a sudden release of glucose.

The following can occur with the addiction.
1) Cancer (mouth, lungs, throat, gums, tongue)

consequences from negative reinforcement can be demonstrated in the laboratory by training a rat to press a lever to avoid being punished by, for example, a small electric shock to the feet. Each time the animal receives a light predicting shock, it will perform an operant response to avoid the shock being delivered. Similarly, a dependent heroin user may take the drug (operant response) to avoid going through withdrawal symptoms and the associated physical and psychological discomfort. An important note to emphasize is that these learning mechanisms can operate outside of one’s conscious awareness and not include the decision-making process.

Marcus Burrage was arrested for distribution of heroin and distribution of heroin resulting in the death of Joshua Banka. A jury found him guilty, and Burrage was sentenced to nearly 40 years in prison. The Supreme Court held that a defendant who distributes drugs cannot receive an enhanced penalty when a victim suffers death or serious bodily injury as a result of using the drugs unless the victim’s use of the drugs is a but-for cause of the death or injury, at least where the use of the drug was not independently sufficient to cause the death or injury.

cannabis affect sensitivity to heroin. Researchers tend to even call marijuana a “getaway drug” since the phenomena of progressing from soft to hard drugs is becoming a common issue.
Taking everything into consideration, cannabis legalisation is the source of the controversial and heated debate that has been the source of many strikes and fights. Legalising cannabis may have beneficial effects for both the countries and the individuals but the negative ones outweigh these. Since, according to countless studies and researches, legalization of marijuana would increase marijuana use, double the risk of accidents for drivers and introduce the phenomena of leading marijuana users onto hard drugs, legalising marijuana would be an extremely risky decision for any country and any society. To avoid this potential risks arising cannabis should remain a forbidden fruit.

Richard Nixon started the war on drugs in 1971; he declared the drug problem to be a national emergency. One of the initial problems with drugs started when the soldiers came home from the Vietnam War addicted to Heroin. In an attempt to control the problem, Nixon went hard to work in an attempt control the “problem”. In 1973 Richard Nixon created the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to form a group with a single goal to combat the drug problem. At the time the budget was less than $75 million and has increased dramatically today.

Users of illegal drugs are generally aware that they may face legal consequences and even jail time for their actions, but the risky behavior may actually increase their excitement. The seduction of the drugs also clouds their good judgement. Cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, and heroin are some the most commonly used illegal drugs. The reasons for experimenting with these drugs vary from trying to fit with a crowd, trying to forget about problems, achieving a greater "high", expanding the mind, or enjoying a party more. Unfortunately, once the euphoria wears out and the withdrawal symptoms start, life is not

However apart from this, there is a psychological barrier in the character of this heroin, which should also pay the price. We can deduce from the novel that she is shy, sensitive, self-enclosed and holdfast to the people she loves. To some extent, her struggle with the fate seems to be pale for it is through this character that her own tragic fate has already been destined: falling love with a dude so deeply while never having told him the truth of her endless waiting.

I used drugs ‘recreationally’ and therefore thought I had no addiction problem. I used drugs like nicotine, marijuana or LSD to be happy or to have fun. I needed drugs. I kept using drugs, I used drugs like marijuana to fit socially. I had problems in my life, emotionally, that drugs only seemed to solve. Drugs made my problems worse. I started snorting cocaine. I injected heroin into my veins. I almost died. I was addicted.”

However, Workaholics shows that this has shifted. What was once seen as a serious, sensitive topic in society can now be seen as funny, and because it’s not often a source of humour, it’s not seen to be dangerous (Breed and De Foe 142).

Datig makes it very clear that legalizing marijuana would only contribute to youth addiction and many would say that Colorado and Washington State are going to walk a very fine line on this one issue alone. This very same article went on to bolster its own argument against the legalization of marijuana by stating “Marijuana legalization infringes on our right to a healthy society and exposes communities to addiction, crime, biohazards, drug dealing and it must be defeated.” (PR Newswire, 2010).

The personalities of many characters in Pride and Prejudice become infuriating and bothersome as the novel progresses.

Role of Sports in Society
A. Description of the issue
The role of sport in society has been debated for many decades. Sport is a part of society as both an educational fixture and an entertainment enterprise. Sport forms part of human and social development; it can contribute to social cohesion, tolerance and integration and is an effective channel for physical and socio-economic development. As a universal language, sport can be a powerful medium for social and economic change: it can be utilized to bridge cultural gaps, resolve conflict and educate people in ways that very few activities can. The goal of the Sports Council is to examine the proposition that sport can be a powerful agent

A team that is multi-cultural has the capability to bring individuals together with an extensive range of ideas and experiences. In the recent years, there has been a tendency of multi-cultural teams becoming very common. This is because cross border mobility has become much easier and the number of people travelling from one nation to another has grown significantly (Aswathppa, 2010).

For some, once they have reached a goal in one market they make decisions to venture out into other markets. In the world of business, that venturing out is called diversifying the company. According to Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary, to diversify is “to increase the variety of the products of; or to engage in varied operations.” (Merriam-Webster, 2012) In a business, when you produce a variety of goods or invest in different markets it is a strategy that provides a back-up in the event that one good or investment goes south.

What is Honor?
My understanding of the term honor.
Honor is defined as a source of credit or distinction, and is associated with reverence, dignity, reputation, good name and a good sense of what is morally correct. The key part to honor is having respect for others and for you; the two must act together because without both, there is nothing. I strongly believe that reputation is hard to gain and easily lost. Think about this, every day thousands of planes fly somewhere and there is never any news about a successful landing, but if any of those flights crash, it is all over the news.
