Though amphetamine does have some positive effects, including, a stimulation of cognitive activity and control of impulses, the greater effects are much ore detrimental. Due to is relative simplicity of manufacturing and overwhelming abundance; methamphetamine use is a plague on America. I personally have seen people deteriorate before my eyes due to methamphetamine use. Cocaine is another stimulant that often leads to dependence in users.
Google: Dumbing Down Society Does the Internet make us stupid? Or does it simply allow us to become more efficient?

Cannabis Sativa In America’s perspective on drugs, marijuana has always been one of the biggest concerns. Why though, is marijuana illegal when alcohol and tobacco, two life threatening substances, are legal in its place? Yet, many states still don’t recognize the benefits of marijuana. For the past twenty years, controversy has arisen on the topic of decriminalizing Cannabis Sativa. (The proper term for marijuana) Legalizing marijuana for both medicinal and recreational uses would not only help those unfortunate people with mental or physical illnesses, it would also help kick start the economy, it could reduce different varieties of crime, and it’s safer and more beneficial than FDA approved drugs, alcohol, and tobacco.

Name: Thomas Mulholland Student Number: 300229066 Date: 11/03/2011 Due date for essay: 11/03/2011 Word count: 830 The Intoxication Instinct 13 November 2004 by Helen Phillips and Graham Lawton In this essay I will consider Helen Phillips’ and Graham Lawtons’ idea that the pursuit of intoxication, particularly through the use of illicit drugs, is potentially a basic part of human nature and not as harmful as is often believed. This claim is important because despite continued attempts at prohibition, drug use remains a major part of human society. If we attempt to understand drug use and the desire for intoxication, instead of condemning them as a whole, humanity will have the potential to gain both a new understanding of the human mind, and access any positive uses found in these substances. I will assess the strengths and weakness of this position, and conclude by offering my overall evaluation of the argument. The authors of this paper argue that the pursuit of intoxication, be through mind altering drugs or through other means, is a basic part of human nature, present in some form or another across humans as a species (In their words, it is a “universal” pursuit), and biologically programmed into us, and that drug use and experimentation is not inherently evil, such as is often claimed.
