Farben whom is known as the largest chemical and pharmaceutical company in the world. These combined powers created the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). In 1930 the FDA was established to help resolve the condition of the products sold across the United States. I felt that the background to I.G. Farbens ties to the Nazi war machine was somewhat over the top.
Should the Canadian government fund safe injection sites for drug addicts? 1. Introduction Substance abuse is probably one of the worst ways to degrade and disrespect your body, furthermore, people get addicted to sleeping pills, painkillers, tobacco and what about those of us caffeine-crazed individuals who will sit in a Tim Horton’s drive through for 20 minutes just to get our fix. How are these substances different from heroine, cocaine, LSD or Chrystal meth? 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.
Breann Mullins Mrs. Rofe Advance Composition 10-21-14 Cocaine The real question is, “when will people understand that doing cocaine isn't a joke”? Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug made from the leaves of the coca plant native to South America. It was first isolated (extracted from coca leaves) in 1859 by German chemist Albert Neimann. It was not until the 1880's that it started to be popularized in the medical community. Native Peruvians chewed coca leaves only during religious ceremonies.
Amy Kim Mr. Unsinger/ Admin Justice January 5, 2012 The “Miracle Drug” Cocaine is a crystalline tropane alkaloid that is obtained from leaves of the coca plant.

December 2, 2010 Killing the Savage By Reluctant Materialist What we need now is another Aldous Huxley. Most people know Huxley for his psychedelic drug influenced writings. But recent events have me thinking of his 1932 novel “Brave New World,” in which he observed the hazardous effects of materialism and promiscuity, and offered a solution: exercise chastity and don’t be materialistic. “Feeling lurks,” he threatened ironically, “in that interval of time between desire and its consumption.” O.K., in reality promiscuity and materialism haven’t hit us as hard as in “Brave New World”, but they’re here — and the rate of divorce is only 50%, it’s not an obscenity…yet. But only a satirist — and one with a very savage pen — could do justice to what’s happening to the modern world now.
Hunter S. Thompson had been heavily involved in the drug culture of the Sixties so it was only appropriate for him to be the author behind the final farewell to the era. Ironically, while drug use had given him the supposed “inspiration” for his book, the novel also marked the end of an era which condoned and supported drug use. The decline of the drug counter culture is reflected in Hunter S. Thompson’s musings on the crest and fall of the 1960’s California Acid Wave. Hunter S. Thompson was uniquely qualified for such a discussion. He was heavily involved in the California Acid Wave and thought at the peak of the wave that: There was madness in any direction, at any hour.

It took a scientist’s discovery to run a factory at its maximum potential but it’s the smoke stacks from those factories that are contributing to the depletion of our ozone layer. Eli Lilly, a huge pharmaceutical company, employs multiple medical scientists to work on formulating drugs for an infinite amount diseases and ailments. It’s those same drugs that are causing terrible addictions and unfortunate deaths.

Brett Ingram Dr. Vails English 1301 10 October 2013 Drugs are not always what they seem 3, 4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) is a hallucinogenic chemical that has been banned across the United States. Molly is the street name for pure MDMA and although Molly is very similar to Ecstasy, they are in fact different. Molly is pure MDMA and is not mixed with any other illegal substances. One can tell by the color and the taste if something extra has been added into the capsule, but is MDMA a negative thing, or are there actually positive aspects to this drug? This “rave drug” is actually proven to be good for one’s mental health.
