Unlike soma, the drugs produce numerous negative aftereffects. Furthermore, the use of drugs is not regulated. As a result many accidental overdoses do occur. Although drug use is not mandatory as it is in Brave New World, many people choose to take drugs. In both societies, people use drugs for the euphoric feeling to escape from their worries and problems, instead of dealing with their emotions.
Drug users are over all significantly less productive than those who choose to be drug free. The first step toward a drug free workplace is filtering out applicants that may use drugs; traditionally this is done by requesting a pre-employment drug screening. With the technology of today employers can do so much more, for example, do some of your own research. Most of society uses social networking sites such as Facebook or MySpace viewing a prospective employee’s profiles is both legal and advantageous. When placing an ad for a job opening be sure to promote the fact that your organization is drug free and that pre-employment drug testing is mandatory.
In modern society many people live off of prescription drugs and many more take them for no other reason but to have a good time. In Brave New World the most popular form of pleasure is a drug called soma, which is the only for anyone to believe they are experiencing real feelings. Taking soma is the most common recreational activity for the citizens of the world state. However they don’t just take it for recreation but they also take it because their society depends on it to provide stability. As with soma, prescription drugs (where prescribed or otherwise) provide a quick fix for physical or mental problems and/or a way to get high.
The government has decided that addiction to these types of harmless drugs is okay, and then provides us with safe ways to access and ingest them. Could it be that the moment you turn to an illegal drug, you forfeit any chance of safety that the government could offer to you? Illegal drug use surrounds us every day, in fact, substance abuse is not a problem that will go away by banishing users to the streets; such attitudes only exacerbate this ever so common, serious issue. Critics argue that safe injection sites condone a criminal act, whereas, others argue that it’s better to focus on enabling addicts to practice the behavior more safely. While we must appreciate the moral perspectives some attempt to embody, good public policy must be measured by its effectiveness and ability to actually achieve the goals it is designed to respond to.
Codeine is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved drug which branches from the opioid analgesics which reduces and/or eliminates pain. It’s in medicine and is similar yet weaker than morphine. When used, one needs to follows doctor’s orders just like every other medication, because it may result in addiction if the prescription is not followed. It also connects to the human nervous system. Although Codeine is legal in the United States, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) supervise its manufacturing because it’s only legal with a prescription.
Another difference in Cocaine kids is the teenagers ran there drug markets like a business and became very successful. For example, they had jobs in their market that did not require selling the drug product. There were positions such as, runners that are messengers which take cocaine to buyers, and lookouts whose job was to simply be on the lookout for police officers. Catcher was another job description that involved catching packages from high level cases simply because the police had intruded. The only way to qualify for a job was to achieve the trust of a dealer.
After all, these drugs are drugs that moms, dads, and even brothers and sisters use. As far as prescription drugs or OTC drugs, they are only safe for the person who actually have prescriptions for them or who really need them for medical use. People that take legal drugs think they are not doing anything illegal because these drugs are legal or are prescribed by a doctor. But taking drugs without a prescription – or sharing a prescription drug with friends is actually breaking the law. I do no think that everyone in our society helps promote drug use.
I do believe we should not coddle them with taxpayer treatment programs that a lot of them enter and exit repeatedly. But, on the other hand, if those treatment centers do offer some sort of success, then it a good thing to offer them in hopes of the offenders not depending on drugs and having to commit crimes to get those drugs thus reducing crime, the courts, jails, and prison population. Drug treatment programs are less expensive than prisons and more effective at helping people turn their lives around. Many of the programs available to inmates are provided by organizations like AA and NA, which send volunteers into the prisons. Most of the volunteers are previous offenders who have changed their lives and now want to help other change their life.
Through this campaign, Coca Cola is saying two things: they are fighting against obesity meaning they are socially implicated which is valued by consumers and so create a good image for them; then, Coca Cola is not responsible of obesity because they sell no calorie beverages and so in fact the consumers are the ones responsible of choosing such beverages. Moreover, they want to avoid possible losses. By clearing its responsibilities and having a good image, fewer lobbies would be willing to tax their beverages or to force population to drink less sweetened beverages. Finally, it’s a way of attracting new consumers, the ones who want to loose weights. 4.
Definitions of drug abuse and addiction are subjective and infused with the political and moral values of the society or culture. For example, the stimulant caffeine in coffee and tea is a drug used by millions of people, but because of its relatively mild stimulatory effects and because caffeine does not generally trigger antisocial behavior in users, the drinking of coffee and tea, despite the fact that caffeine is physically addictive, is not generally considered drug abuse. Even narcotics addiction is seen only as drug abuse in certain social contexts. In India opium has been used for centuries without becoming unduly corrosive to the social fabric.
