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. Although more addictive then cocaine and heroin the withdrawals are less severe. 70.3 million people in the US use some form of nicotine at least once a month.
The following can occur with the addiction.
1) Cancer (mouth, lungs, throat, gums, tongue)
2) Cardiovascular diseases
3) Respiratory diseases
4) Pregnancy problems

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.

In India an NGO survey revealed that 63.6 % of patients coming in for treatment were introduced to drugs at a young age below 15 years. According to another report 13.1% of the people involved in drug and substance abuse in India, are below 20 years.

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.

Heroin is associated with the desire for an immediate effect whereas steady release is preferred for someone using a transdermal patch for smoking cessation.

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.

substances that require accurate accounting when used for their prescribed use. 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.

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.

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.

Breed and De Foe state that characters within a comedic genre often don’t joke about hard drugs such as Heroin or casually sit and ingest drugs (140). 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).

One of the main responsibilities of a jail is to give the officers the correct “Police Correspondence” courses. This is because these courses give the officers the effective basic training that they need to do things such as; Writing of Memoranda, Police Reports, and Civilian Letters. What needs to be done first is make sure that there are NO errors. This means in spelling, punctuation, price, and grammar. These should be thoroughly, and constantly, edited. Another thing is conciseness; this means it should be brief or limited in words. Although, concision does not mean deleting words that count just to make
