STDs, fighting fatalities and injuries, and jail time are real threats to those who choose to live in the false grandeur of a Hollywood life. The Ugly Face of Entertainment Entertainment tempers people's hectic pace of life, preserves sanity, and serves as a vehicle for socialization. In an age of technology, however, new entertainment has invaded society and rotted morals. Television, computer and video games, movies, and others have placed an unhealthy emphasis on indulgence and violence. By capitalizing on thrillers like aggression, much of entertainment has distorted human character and promoted violence.
The intoxication model suggests that individuals will not use rational thought while intoxicated which leads to the addiction model which states that crimes are committed so the addict can support the habit (WSSAC,2009) The systemic model states that crime occurs when the participant of the drug trade sales the drug. For instance, the use of drugs influences criminal behavior while the distribution of illegal products is a crime. Last is legal model. In this model the individual choices to either abide by the laws that have been enacted to address drug use, possession, and distribution or the person can choice the path that breaks these laws. The war on drugs has become top priority for justice members.
Visual texts can often influence our perception of the world and construct ideas about the changing attitudes of modern society. The film Candy directed by Neil Armfield opens the reader up into the dark world of heroin addiction conveying the idea that modern society becoming less acceptant of junkies as seen through the isolated world of the two main characters. The deliberately confronting and grimm portrayal of drug addiction is constructed with the use of film codes such as camera techniques, setting, audio and character construction. These techniques give the viewer a chance to gain and realistic insight into the harsh reality of Heroin addiction and develop a response to the world wide issue. The construction of film codes within Candy
He uses statistics showing, there are billions of dollars put aside for those who get affected by the side effects of the drugs. Elliott shows how Americans are jealous of athletes and they “secretly want to see stars fail”(para 3). Based on these arguments presented, Elliott does a fabulous job convincing the audience that there are problems with drug usage and how easily they are accessible. The author grabs the audience’s attention by claiming how easily drugs are prescribed by doctors or attained via the black market. Elliott uses ample amounts of examples that shows how America is slowly turning to drugs for every short-come presented.
The media likes to capture rock musicians using drugs at wild parties and acting irresponsible to get attention from people and increase magazine sales and ratings. I consider musicians to be artists who use music as a form of expression. The majority of their actions are to uphold certain image expectations from their fan base. Rock stars are expected to act wild and crazy always engaging in scandals to keep their fans wanting more. While a majority of these people are addicts with psychological issues who usually die from overdoses of illicit drugs many actually have families and are regular normal people when they are not in the spotlight.
Drug Trafficking in the United States from Mexico Drug trafficking in the United States and Mexico is a huge problem for the United States because it has a negative impact on other areas in society such as crime rates. The government needs to find a solution to better control drug trafficking because it claims lives and destroys families. Research shows Marijuana and Cocaine are the top two most illegally abused drugs in the United States. James Gray (2001) points out: Not only is this drug-money corruption problem of enormous concern in its own right, but additional lawless behavior often is derived from it as well. For example, the entire southern California area was shocked in September 1999 when a former officer of the Rampart Division
Did you know athletes at the collegiate level are required to pull their pants down in front of the nurse to prove the urine sample is their own! Not only is that morally wrong, but could stir up legal drama and end in a lawsuit and the end of their athletic career. Likewise, money always seems to be an issue in our time, but $15 million dollars is being spent on these drug tests when most are lied about to be thrown away. Marijuana and tobacco is the most positive drug in teenage drug tests. Nurse Jennifer Hanson was questioned about this and replied “yes, many are positive for these drugs and when a majority of them are told their results the automatic answer is ‘I was in the car with someone smoking’ and the head nurse tells them they’re fine to go.” If the head nurses doing these tests let these lying kids go, is there a point?
Deviancy and drug use go hand in hand. In fact, many consider drugs to be one of the main gateways to some of the worst kinds of deviant behavior, aside from the actual usage of drugs. When I say drugs, I’m talking not only prescription, but synthetic drugs as well, which have now become an apparent issue in smaller towns as opposed to big cities. The key link between drug usage and deviancy is mainly based off of one’s personal perception of what they deem “deviant” and what the user deems “deviant.” But the most deviant factor of all is the fact that is these drugs become so widespread in such a small area, that you have an abundance of negative potential just waiting to go off like a time-bomb. The big problem as of lately with drug usage and small towns, is that the drugs are cheap to boost profit, meaning that the lower price may have a consequence of a more harmful substance, due to certain products being cut with cheaper, more harmful chemicals.
Several diseases will easily attack teenagers consuming drugs. Smoking, for instance, is the one of the risky activity related with the use of drug where a cigarette contains substances, which can be classified as a kind of drug. In addition, we need to know what the definition of drug is. Drug is the material or substance, which can change minds, moods or feelings, and behaviour when it comes into the human body, through inhaling, injecting or oral. More over, drugs can also make them who use drugs become addicted.
Daniel Day English 10 Fahrenheit 451 Censorship in Movies ! Censorship has played a big role in our world, and to this day it remains a part of many things including: music, video games, movies, books, and journals. Censorship has both positive and negative effects, and can result in books, movies and other materials banned from certain countries, or cityʼs. I believe that they do a superb job censoring things in cinema especially. !
