There are many issues that Native Americans are dealing with today. But one those issues are alcohol abuse. Many Native Americans and their families are dealing with addiction to alcohol. It isn’t just one tribe but all the tribes all over America. The lifestyle of the Indian people is not improving, but getting worse.
Alcoholism results in maldigestion and malabsorption of nutrients. 2. Discuss how culture provides rules for drinking behavior. From the earliest recorded use of alcohol, drinking has been a social activity, and both consumption and behavior have been subject to self-imposed social controls. Attempts at prohibition have never been successful except when couched in terms of sacred rules in highly religious cultures.
Positive Effects of a Lower Drinking Age in America Arguments about the United States drinking age are commonly discussed. The law is thought of by some as a great way to keep young adults out of trouble, but by others it is thought to be an unsuccessful law that has only brought harm to many young adults. Not enough people are taking action in changing the drinking age to eighteen, which may be because Americans feel it is not necessary or because American citizens have not thought into full detail about all of the positive effects a lower drinking age could have. The United States Federal Government believes that citizens under twenty one years of age are not fully developed and consuming alcohol can harm their development, but America has the highest drinking age in the world. Other countries with low drinking ages do not have major health problems concerning alcohol and their young adults, thus proving alcohol is not necessarily unhealthy for developing young adults.
Assessment of Health Need Government guidelines state that men should drink no more than three to four units and women no more than two to three units of alcohol daily. Binge drinking is defined as drinking heavily in a short space of time/ drinking approximately double the recommended limit (Drinkaware, 2010). Alcohol has become an “underappreciated” health risk “factor” as well as an economic burden; further evidence that the dangers of alcohol are of a global concern. The World Health Organisation is advised to consider the tobacco frameworks as an insight into what their actions should be on alcohol control (Beaglehole & Bonita, 2009). One reason offered as an impediment to controls not being in place at present is the imbalance of power between health experts and the alcohol industry (Shiffman & Smith, 2007).
Drink Driving is a serious offence that has MANY negative outcomes to it. Not only are you at risk of losing your licence, affecting day to day tasks and also receiving a heavy fine, but you are also putting yourself, your passengers and any person’s life, who is on the road, in DANGER. Paragraph 1: Each year on Victorian roads, approximately a quarter of drivers are killed or injured from drink driving related incidents where the driver has had a Blood Alcohol Concentration level of at least 0.05 or greater. According to the Transport Accident Commission, with a blood alcohol concentration limit of 0.05, the driver is already doubling their chance to be involved in an accident. At 0.08 it is seven times the risk.
The men who made the Prohibition law itself started to violate it and drinking in private places were hard to terminate. Document D states “…How can you have the heart to prosecute a bootlegger…when you know for a fact that the men who make the laws…are themselves patronizing bootleggers?” This appeared to be a huge problem since how could one enforce a law and not follow it? Considering that everyone was in search of whiskey and alcohol, the law became hard to enforce. Another example can be seen in Document H, which states “There was general prevalence of drinking in homes, clubs and hotels…neither Congress nor the states set up adequate machinery…for the enforcement of the prohibitory legislation.” This shows that drinking was still occurring throughout the nation. Therefore, another reason why America changed its mind was because the law was hard to
R. V. DAVIAULT,  3 SCR 63 CASE ANALYSIS BY: TAIYA SHEARER-SMALL TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4TH 2012 R. V. DAVIAULT (1994) The issues presented in the R. V. Daviault case can be considered to be a true example of the flaws in not only our criminal law, but our constitutional laws as well. This case in particular makes us as a society question the thin line between law and justice. The Leary Rule, established so that those charged with a criminal offence, such as sexual assault, can use intoxication akin to automatism as a defence. Canadian laws were not only made to protect the people of our society, but rather constructed for the people of Canada to live by, as our constitutional laws were set forth to ensure the safety and financial

With considered reference to scholarly literature on the subject, assess the advantages and disadvantages of Cannabis Legalisation in Australia. Domenic Santoro 41748638 Marijuana is the dried up leaves, steams and flowers from the plant Cannabis saliva which is intended for the use as a psychoactive drug (Dennis & White, 1999). The drug has multiple contemporary uses such as a recreational drug, religious rights or as medicine. Marijuana is illegal in Australia bound by the International hague Convention on Narcotics, creating importation controls to be taken over drugs. However, many Australian's still use the drug and believe that it is no worse than alcohol or tobacco.
Africans generally regard alcohol as a beverage that should be drunk on an occasion and not on a daily basis. In return, they take their time to brew the alcohol for the occasion. This perhaps explains why this ethnic group does not engage in alcohol consumption as much as their white
