Society in our world is used to seeing people take legal drugs (like cigarettes or alcohol) because they are allowed to be taken in public places. Illegal drugs, on the other hand, make you an outsider of society (except to drug junkies, who will see you as their best friend).The people in the New World get soma for free because it is, as already mentioned, all ordered and offered by the government. In comparison to that you have to pay for drugs in our world, and most of them have expensive prices that are only affordable to people with enough money. Legal drugs, however, aren’t as expensive as the illegal ones. This has the consequence that many people have to commit crimes and go into prostitution to buy the drugs they depend on.
This video shows kids the dangers of raves, not once does the visual mention any of the positive in the rave culture, nor does it mention rave being a culture at all. It only portrays raves to be parties that are all about getting high, and the lights, bright colored clothing and glow-sticks are only used for enhancing the drug affect. Equally important, she states the possibility of sexual assault. Which is unrealistic for the fact that many people occupy raves, and others constantly surround the individuals. Most ravers would not promote sexual assault or attack at their gatherings, since it goes against PLUR in every way.
How Alcohol Affects the Brain In today’s society, alcohol (also known as) ethanol is a colorless, flammable liquid that resembles water in a sense (Dictionary.com). It also has a strong odor that can burn the nostrils if inhaled improperly, as well as leave a burning after taste if one chooses to drink it by itself. Unfortunately, alcohol is becoming a necessity in our everyday lives, especially when it comes to young adults. The constant use of alcohol can create an addiction, to the point that one feels they need to consume it in order to feel good. People tend to enjoy the affects they receive when they drink alcohol because they feel more relaxed.
Prohibition had not stopped people from drinking; neither will a law stating a legal age limit. Many teens have tried alcohol at least once in their life, even some as young as 5th grade. There is a lot of peer pressure, and the idea of looking and being 'cool' is what makes these teens try alcohol. However, lowering the drinking age to eighteen would decrease that problem, of course it would not stop those under eighteen from drinking, but that can be somewhat controlled by parents and adults in the lives of the youths. If the age limit was lowered the alcohol would no longer be a forbidden, therefore it would not be as appealing as it would normally.
The Politian’s should either change the alcohol laws to 18 or make alcohol illegal. Not say that alcohol is “bad” for young adults but harmless for older adults. Because now, they are spoiling the freedom/democracy of the country and increasing the illegal
Certainly the public is interested in hearing about the impact of legalization on personal conduct involving such matters as safety (driving under the influence) and restricted availability (not providing marijuana to teenagers and children). Many parents are just as concerned, though, about marijuana use in public, whether it is otherwise responsible use or not. The attitude of many parents can be generally summarized as "please, not in front of the kids", underscoring their concern over the conduct of marijuana users over any concern for the effects on the users themselves. Most marijuana users view it as a private matter anyway, just as most marijuana users engage in responsible conduct whether they are stoned or
As it is the younger adults that rebel against their parents by taking drugs and consuming alcohol and it is the older generation that rebel against those in higher authority. This is proven through characters such as Johnny Byron, Dawn, Lee, Fawcett, Wesley, Professor, Davey, Phaedra and Tanya. Although there are characters such as Ginger that could be argued is used for comedic reasons to explore the rebellion of youth against age. This is proven through his character as he is showed to be one that in his cognitive process he is still young and relatable to the younger generation when in fact the audience witnesses that he is just making a fool of himself. Ginger is used for comedy as when he behaves as one of the youths he starts rapping as shown in act one “It’s the fair, it’s the Flintock fair.
Currently, college students mainly drink due to the convenience of accessibility to obtain substances from older acquaintances or friends who also enjoy having a good time. As a result, the Mother’s Against Drunk Driving and federal experts in health regulation have consistently fought to prevent the alcohol industry from altering the drinking age (Kirszner, Mandell 458). Furthermore, it is unethical and immoral practice for parents to be allowing minors to consume alcohol, as this is also illegal and detrimental to one’s overall growth and development. Although some countries in Europe may argue otherwise, intoxication levels are higher in Britain, Denmark and Ireland,
Alcohol can also lead to falls and accidents that can cause serious harm to your brain. Scientists see alcohol as a membrane disruptor giving a generalized effect in all parts of the brain, as the small molecule can freely diffuse across the blood–brain barrier. Scientists now know that there are some cells in the brain that alcohol targets by binding certain hydrophobic pockets on their surface receptors. The gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptor is one of these. GABA is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, and the GABA is used to suppress spasms just like other drugs.
With the help of these teens, this will begin to improve our economy. Lastly, tourists' that are underage drinkers would not want to come to the US.
