Granting everybody is being affected; teenagers are more vulnerable to the media and suffer the highest impact. This is because; they are exposed to the media eight hours a day typically. They spend more time under the media’s influence than with parents; instructors, or even friends; as a result, these deliberate and unsettling messages rendered by the media are demolishing the mentality of teenagers today as it alters their views of the world and their place in it. Teenagers feel immense pressure to mimic the twisted images being shown by the media. Even though, these images that are being presented are, in fact, unrealistic and unattainable to the majority of the people watching it.
Junior believes it has to do with depression, when he says, “I suppose he is depressed” and “I suppose the whole family is depressed” (40). He realizes that when he says, “we all look for ways to make the pain go away” (107). Some people that suffer from depression lock themselves in either the basement or “run away to get drunk” (150), like his sister and father. According to Junior everyone is depressed in the Rez, that is the reason why so many Indians become alcoholics, to flush away their pain. Junior's father “drinks his pain away” (107).
The huge black market for alcohol controlled by crime organizations grew so large that many of the criminal groups were able to build their empires mainly on profits from illegal alcohol. This in turn made them grow in power and their influence on society increased. Many politicians and law enforcements became corrupt, and turned a blind eye to the illegal activity since they were bribed. Prohibition also led to economic consequences. Before the liquor ban, many states relied on tax revenues, and when Prohibition went into effect, those revenues were lost- causing the United Nations to lose 11 billion

Many addicts believe they are the cause of their own addictions and put all the blame on themselves. Maté disagrees with this argument because he believes in the science of the brain and how it works. The fact that some addicts believe that all of the childhood abuse and punishment is because of their actions is absurd. Maté describes these feelings that the addicts feel as “being cut off from their natural self-compassion” (275). The drug addicts lose all respect for themselves and these addictions end up taking over their lives.
Anyone who was positive in the movie they tried to hurt or they killed them off. Young minorities are faced with theses images everyday from music videos on down to television shows and I feel that it was an awful depiction of black culture. I do feel that the movie is detrimental and can taint a young urban minorities mind; it could lead young men and women to idolize criminal lifestyle. When Goldie refers to himself as a “hero” I could almost imagine what is going on in a young teenager’s mind. Their probably thinking the movie was great or they want to sell drugs, be a player or pimp just like him without seeing the truth.
I believe excessive use of social media is more dangerous for young adults because the part of the brain that does the decision making is still growing and developing. Since our brains are placid they can be misused and can grow in unhealthy ways, this includes the excessive use of social media.

This prevents them from reaching the mass’ sought of the American dream and leads to negative acts instead and detrimental
One of those pros would be that lowering the drinking age would decrease the rate of teenager’s discreetly drinking alcohol. At more and more high school and college parties students are drinking alcohol illegally. This is at risk because many of those underage drinkers binge drink to an amount that can seriously harm their body and their brain. Most students do this because they get a thrill out of breaking the law, but binge drinking can lead to major harm to the individual and even death. Though this problem may happen now, no one can know if this start to decrease and the problem will start at a younger age.
The revenue from illegal drugs is a billion dollar industry and what the corrupt border patroller collect in a month is much more than the annual pay.
