The drug given is called soma. Soma blocks and numbs reality and replaces it with happy hallucinations. It also blocks people’s ability to see the life they actually live, which is a form of manipulation because citizens are manipulated to take soma, which helps them live a happy and perfect lifestyle.

Since soma is taken every day the amount given is regulated so there is no such thing as overdose.
To what extent is the use of mass surveillance on the general public justified? To start off, mass surveillance is the use of technology for the monitoring of the general population mainly by the government. The reason for the use of such a degree of surveillance is in order to protect the general public as means of counter-terrorism. However the use of mass surveillance has been a controversial topic of debate for a long time, ever since the technology capable of monitoring every single citizen in the country was introduced. Although it wasn’t likely to have been put in the limelight of the public.
Not only did the attacks leave behind sheer devastation it left behind lots of speculation between what really happened that day. People started to poke holes in what was being shown on the news and what the government was leading the public to believe was the truth.

In Theodore Dalrymple’s paper, Don’t Legalize Drug he mentions there are drugs that have psychopharmacological properties that lead to violence, strictly based on the consumption of the drug. Dalrymple states, “Stimulant drugs such as crack cocaine provoke paranoia, increase aggression, and promote violence” (pg.257). This reason alone is enough to not want the legalization of drugs, just think about how many more violent addicts will exist in this world if drugs were made

The reasoning behind writing the article “An End to the War on Weed” is to show how legalizing marijuana will solve many problems that have arisen simply because the government is trying to keep it illegal. The author, Nathan Comp, wants the readers to understand how it has been a common misconception that legalizing marijuana is a bad thing and that it will actually reap good benefits for all parties involved. Since the article talks about former and current US Presidents, as well as details border patrol surround the United States, the main intended audience for the article would be the inhabitants of America.

The famous phrase that the forbidden fruit is sweetest is very common and very actual thus if some of the drugs were to be legalized this would greatly help in alleviating the widespread use of drugs and the crimes related to drugs altogether (National Drug Control Strategy, 2011). Justification as to why this study should be conducted is the fact that the eradication of drug trafficking in the United States will help solve a multidimensional problem.

America must restore its rights and responsibilities. Prohibition does not work. There would not be a criminal market place if drugs, all drugs including designer drugs, were legal.

Drug addiction is a very serious, universal and expensive social problem here in the United States. Despite the fact of whether or not substance abuse is a sin, a crime, a bad habit or even an illness, there should be a public policy and/or approaches taken by the government to solve the drug war that is happening all around. Until quite recently, the solution to combat and win the drug war has been to imprison drug addicts. Many people think that imprisoning drug abusers would in a sense clean society out to the extent that there would be less drug sellers roaming around in the streets, etc and that society would be safer since more drug addicts, who are also more inclined to commit crimes would be behind bars. However, the latest research has proven that jail time would actually hinder an addict’s recovery process or even cause it to worsen.
