Should Marijuana Be Legalized?
“Herb is the healing of the nation, alcohol is the destruction.” –Bob Marley. Bob Marley believed that marijuana should be legalized for anyone and everyone to use how they want to.

The legalization of marijuana has been a controversial topic for many years now. Do the pros of the legalization of marijuana outweigh the cons of the legalization of marijuana? I believe so. The fact is Marijuana legalization would have an abundance of positive effects for not only the U.S. but for the world as well. Cannabis is not a deadly plant. However some choose to argue that the crime rate would rise as of a result of the legalization of marijuana. However legalization of cannabis would lessen the prison population, allow marijuana to be table and create billions of dollars that...

Legalizing Marijuana: A Utilitarian Perspective
The legalization of marijuana in the United States remains a major issue and has caused much controversy due to opposing views. With the economy being in the state that it is, we need to utilize all available resources and set aside personal emotion regarding “smoking weed”. While some support decriminalization, there are many reasons why other individuals, including the government, do not. From a utilitarian point view, legalizing marijuana will produce the greatest good for the greatest number of people...

Marijuana, commonly known as bhang, weed, stone and pot is produced from the plant called Cannabis Sativa. It remains illegal in many countries while others are fighting to legalize it.

Drug trafficking includes trade of illegal drugs. These drugs are produced in one region of the globe and then through a well articulated network get traded to different corners of the world. According to a report published by United Nations Research Institute for Social Development in 1994, most of these illegally drugs are being produced in the lesser developed countries and then are being traded to the more affluent and developed nations. The same report also claimed that every region does not produce all the kinds of major illicit drugs, rather each region produces one or two major illicit drugs and then moves them to other parts through a strong distribution channel....

Panic Attacks in Young Adults (18-29)
Right before I left for college I experienced the single most terrifying thing that has ever happened to me. This experience and the fear of it happening again stalked me day and night. It is something that has stayed with me and that I deal with and fear on a daily basis. It wasn’t until years later that I sought professional help and found out how common this very personal, ground-shattering experience actually was. I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia.
Throughout history, anxiety and fear have been recognized as an inherent part of man’s existence. However, in antiquity,...

Marijuana has been illegal for many years now, but can only be used for medical purposes. The drug is used to provide medical treatment for many diseases. Cannabis sativa plant is the really name for marijuana. One of the ingredients in marijuana is THC. Cox (2012) says:
THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana's psychological effects. THC changes behavior by binding — fitting together like a lock and key — to receptors on nerve cells, which then respond with a change in activity. (para1).
When people are taking drug test, they use the levels of THC in a...

One December 9, 2011, Officer Larry and Officer Byron pulled up next to each other talking when they noticed a black window tinted Tahoe approaching them. The vehicle appeared as if it was going to head straight until it noticed the two officer’s cars on a side street, which it then slowed down, and turned around. This of course made Officer Larry and Officer Byron very suspicious. It was approximately 3:10 AM, which made it even more suspicious as they were on a side street. The officers, both driving separate vehicles, went to follow the black vehicle. However, it rapidly accelerated in speed, turning the next corner and again accelerating. At this point, the officers then turned on their...

The battle against illegal drugs is one of the most costly wars a country can venture on. This is because, apart from costs associated with the venture; when it comes to arrests, the prosecution process, and prison costs, the war denies a country’s medical sector a chance of exploiting the medicinal part of some illegalized drugs for example, marijuana. In addition, considering the amount of revenue, which a country can gain via taxes, the war has many associated losses than gains. Although this is the case, it is important to note that, to some extent, prohibition of illegal drug use has many associated benefits; considering the effects of...

The Benefits of Decriminalizing Marijuana
There are so many benefits to be derived from the herb Marijuana, yet it sparks so much controversy, as policymakers probe the aspect of legalizing the possession and use of this plant. Marijuana also called Cannabis sativa when used correctly provides many benefits to one’s health. It can also be used to develop the psychological being of an individual. The legalization of Marijuana will lead to a reduction in drug related crimes. Therefore, I firmly believe that Marijuana should be decriminalized worldwide.
Marijuana is sometimes referred to as a medicinal plant. The leaves and buds have been used in herbal remedies and cures for years. There...

Anslinger came along, who seeked career opportunity with the Bureau of Narcotics.

What is Drug Testing
Drug testing refers to the analysis of biological material to detect the presence or absence
of drugs and metabolites within the human body. Metabolites are the substances into which
drugs, including alcohol, are converted by the human body. The presence of metabolites shows
that the relevant substances have been used in the recent past. The most common form of testing
for illicit drugs is the analysis of urine samples. For alcohol, breath tests are more common, and
these are often followed up by blood tests for confirmation. Oral fluid, hair and sweat can be
used to conduct test to find the presence of drugs or alcohol....

PRINCIPLE OF UTILITY
Utility was defined by Bentham as “the principle which approves or
disapproves of every action whatsoever according to the tendency which it appears to have to augment or diminish the happiness of the party whose interest is in question.” The principle of utility is designed to promote the happiness of the individual or the community. The community can have no interests independent of or aggressive to the interests of the individual.
Bentham's theory of utilitarianism asserts that actions and institutions should be judged by their contribution to utility, which is measured by calculating the relative contribution to happiness or pleasure, as...

African American music changed drastically during the film Dreamgirls. The film portrayed how African American music was centered on the feelings and emotions of the artist, with references to religion as well. R&B star Jimmy "Thunder" Early mentions early in the film that if is a part of a song, then the song must have some “soul.” This was a belief of African American artists at the time, which is the reason why the artists were only deemed successful within the African American community. Also, sex appeal was not deemed as necessary for the success of music in the African American community because music was viewed as a form of expression, not just a product to make music.

So knowing how to clean up after an oil spill is important because if we didn’t then the animals in the sea would die, when they die there won’t be any sea food and the sea food that was there would be filled with oil, dirt, and slime.

In the same way, our personal life is a result of our constant negotiation skills and this translates into obtaining better loan rates, longer payment terms, reassigning household tasks,...

Journal Assignment (Oil Market)
Throughout the past decade there has been constant discussion about the United States attaining most of its oil from the Middle East. In fact, many journalists and news feeds have theorized how the majority of American oil has been imported by the Middle Eastern countries, and have even gone to the extent to claim that the American “War on Terror” in Iraq was simply to attain more oil. Whether these conspiracy theories are true or not, import data on oil to the United States has proven otherwise.

1) What could account for the reversal against expectation?
Answer: size of the mainland pool of species, lack of differences in dispersal ability among the mainland species, and competition between species.
2) Why aren’t all species equal in the larger context?
Answer: Some species live in much greater jeopardy of extinction than others. The rare species, the highly specialized species, the less competitive species, and the species having low aptitude for dispersal and colonization, all these species might be missing from a reserve system if the reserves were numerous but small.
3) Why should the number of extinctions be inversely related to reverse size?

Is asexuality a lack of sexual orientation and analogous to other sexual orientations and identities?
One of the most inescapable social assumptions is that all humans possess sexual desire (Cole, 1993; 192). A related assumption is that sexuality is not only something one does, but an identity or something one is (Weeks, 1986; Foucault, 1978, cited in Scherrer, 2008; 621).
Most inquiries into asexuality have approached it as either behaviour (lack of sexual acts) or a lack of desire for sexual acts. However, Scherrer argues that the complexity and variability of asexuality also encompasses those who are interested in romantic attachment but with limited or no physical contact,...

The view that working class children cultural deprivation is the reason of their underachievement can be very rightly true. Cultural deprivation is the lack of certain rules of behavior in social situations, values, belief that something is a worthwhile, attitude and skills these are all of what society calls “normal”. Working class children are less likely to succeed in life because they are less likely to be found in nursery schools, less likely to go to university and more likely to be poor readers when they start school, more likely to be in lower sets and streams in secondary school, more likely to leave school early, more likely to underachieve at GCSEs and a level, more likely to be...

No matter whether the discourse is of corporate social responsibility or of sustainability there exists a high degree of scepticism about the reality of corporate activity. Accusations of greenwashing – presenting a false picture – abound.
We argue that this is a legacy of past behaviour when such an accusation could reasonably be made about many organisations. Our argument is the CSR is a developmental process and changes as organisations mature in their behaviour and attitude towards both their stakeholders and their ideas concerning social responsibility. Of course we also acknowledge that there is a growing body of evidence to show that social responsibility behaviour becomes reflected...
