While some do not believe the theory that drugs are used for the risk, it is an interesting way to look at the reason people do drugs. People who are pro drugs promote that drugs, such as marijuana, are used for medical use as well as recreational use, because they enjoy the effect drugs have on them. Prohibitionists state that if drugs were legalized they would be only consumed for recreational use or to escape from reality instead of dealing with issues (Marijuana Abuse, 2012). Some prohibitionists do not even believe that drugs help in medical ways. This controversial topic is one of the reasons the drug reform is such a debated movement of today.
Rolling in Ecstasy: MDMA Use in the United States Many people may find it difficult to believe that a drug claimed to be able to kill within one usage actually is beneficial and safe for treating a wide variety of medical diseases. This is especially the case for the infamous and reportedly deadly “club drug,” MDMA or Methylenedioxymethamphetamine. MDMA was first synthesized by Merck Pharmaceuticals in 1912 as a potential headache medication, but after finding no connection they deemed further studies unnecessary. This caused the drug to essentially vanish until 1977, when a chemist by the name of Charles Shulgin took a second look at MDMA and discovered that Merck may have been very wrong. Dr. Shulgin found the drug to be therapeutic and christened it “window” as he felt it
Many people believe that people shouldn’t take any kind of drug to get rid of depression. I disagree with those people, I believe people should be able to take antidepressants to help them better themselves and hopefully help them have a better life. There are many reasons why I think people should be able to take antidepressants. One major reason is because I take them and I believe that they have helped me a lot, maybe even to the extreme where they have saved my life. Before I started taking antidepressants I was very depressed, suffered from social anxiety and I felt that life didn’t really have a meaning for me.
His argument had effect the classification system, in DSM-IV the new identity are given to those patients so they would be accept by the society. However, there are still ethical concerns since the patients are still labeled as “abnormal”, even though they behave normal. Scheff argued that giving people labels would probably effect their behavior by self fulfilling prophecy, which means, people would behave in ways they think they are. They would automatically play the role of mentally disorder and show more obvious symptoms by knowing that they are mentally ill. Doherty argued that people who do not accept their labels are tend to improve faster, which means people who accept the labels did not improve as fast. In a study carried out by Langer and Abelson, it shows that people who are labeled as mentally dis order tend to endure discrimination.
By using surveys, we will be able to obtain information which cannot be observed directly, which will not translate into a conclusion. Additionally, observations will not be an adequate source of information as it could be misinterpreted based on the perspective of the observer. Biological and Psychological Depression Depression is a commonly recognized as a mental disorder. Reasons for biological depression vary greatly, which allows for a widespread approach to conducting research to uncover the true cause. This research has greatly benefited our understanding of brain functions.
Scientists believe this method will transform the severe disease of Duchenne muscular dystrophy to a much milder Becker muscular dystrophy. For me, some pros to this approach would be a cure for a severe case of muscular dystrophy, but it is unfortunate that the patient will still have the disorder, just in a milder form. A con would be any side effects that exon skipping may have. Since there are not any recorded cases of this being done in the United States, it is hard to know whether or not exon skipping could be potentially dangerous to those who want to try the treatment since testing in human patients is still out of the question. Another con is within the administration of the treatment.
Relapsing addicts need a more effective therapy to help overcome addiction problem once and for all. Dealing with past anger and forgiving the people who have driven the addicts to addiction is an excellent method to pursue. The authors indicated their research is the first of its kind specifying the uniqueness of the problem. Even though the study has several mistakes, the identifying problem should inspire additional research. Most rehabilitation centers use therapy to overcome drug and alcohol addictions, not the underlying cause of the addictions.
I believe neuro-imaging could be used as evidence. While many people may use it as an excuse for their actions, it makes sense for why they did these actions. I do not believe it should give them a free pass out of jail (since they still know its wrong and CAN ask for help), but I do think they need counseling and medication over some jail time since that is the only thing that will cure their problem. 5. Do you believe that the judicial system should be based on holding people accountable for their choices (blame) or probability of future crimes committed?
They both have the concept of saving a life, but just have different ways of doing it. Patch’s is more of the unorthodox practice and can go really great, or go really sour. If Patch has a more understanding of personal information about a person, then he can rule out certain diseases or treatments needed for the patient. By doing this, he can save lots of time and possible save a life if under a time frame. But if Patch was too attach to the patient, he could also make a totally wild off the chart procedure and could cause more damage or be fatal to the patient.
Second, monitoring drug use during the pretrial periods, coupled with sanctions, will reduce the risk of pretrial misconduct.” (Neubauer et al, 2002) However, several studies find that this method has had limited success. Requiring defendants to participate in drug testing does not reduce failure-to-appear rates (Visher 1992; Goldkamp and Jones 1992). So it is my opinion that pretrial drug-testing programs do not and can not help predict which defendants will be rearrested while out on
