Our discussion theme is based on exploring the concept of drugs beyond the obvious scientific explanations.

In this discussion, we will use our imagination to go beyond scientific perspective on the subject of drugs and its effects on people. Have you ever wondered if there’s anything else behind the adverse effects of drugs on people? As we know, perpetual use of illicit drugs often leads for drug addiction.
People who become addicted to drugs are affected in three different ways. 1) Illicit drug use alters how their brain functions, triggering the urges to use more drugs – just like our brain triggers the stomach when we are hungry. 2) Illicit drug use effects their social habits. When people start to use illicit drugs, they usually befriend other illicit drug addicts and drug dealers while shunning family and friends who have had positive affects in their lives. 3) Illicit drug use effects an addict’s state of mind. Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic theory may refer to it as “psychoanalytic perspective” and religion calls it “our spiritual being or discernment.” Most people call it, “your gut-feeling or your inner-core.” If you’ve ever met someone or been at a place, and for some reason, you just don’t feel right or comfortable around that person or at that place, that’s your discernment – you can’t quantify it scientifically, but the feeling is very real to you.
Based on science, we can measure how drugs effect people by analyzing changes in their body chemistry. But even with such understanding, how do we deal with those aspects of illicit drug use that we cannot quantify, scientifically. Buy the way, did you know that (Alcoholic Anonymous) AA meetings incorporate this notion into their process?
A question I posed at the beginning of our class alluded to drug use, abuse, and addiction. Aside from the human accidental discovery of natural elements, some of which we have used scientific methods to quantify as tangible substance (drugs), who or what introduced drugs to us? While drugs can heal, when taken properly, it can also destroy people, especially folks who lust after it. When you get high on drugs, you are feeding your flesh, which is lust of the flesh. But more than just fleshly pleasures, you might also be introducing your mind to an abnormal psychic (the non-tangible part of human – our minds). The illusive aspect of the human mind is the adverse effects that science has yet to quantify. We cannot touch drug addiction, but we can see how it destroys people. When I was an adult Probation Officer, I saw too many drug addicts who had the hardest time overcoming their addiction, and most of them could not get off drugs even after trying so hard to do so. I supervised drug addicts, who appeared very sincere in their efforts to get off drugs but simply couldn’t. Nearly all of them began their drug addiction with smoking marijuana – you know – weed – the other street cigarette. That experience thought me that no one want to grow up to become a drug addict. As the journey of a thousand mile begins with a step forward, so too does the skid-road of drug addiction begin with smoking weed. Take a look at these videos and answer the questions below.
Based on the concepts described, answer the questions below.

Discussion Questions:
——You don’t have to answer every question below, but you do need to answer at least 5 questions. Basically, answer the ones that are most appealing to you.
1) Have you ever had conversation with a drunk, a person who is high on marijuana, alcohol or other street drugs? What was it like? Describe your experience. Please DO NOT mention anyone by name regardless of your relationship with that person, past or present.
2) Aside from medical and scientific explanations of how the human brain works and its functionality, what do you think of people who are perceived crazy when high on drugs or because of drugs? Are they using more of their brain than most of us?
3) When people call the police to domestic disturbance where the suspect is obviously high on drugs, do you believe they want a law enforcement agent or a social worker to make peace, especially in a situation where lethal force had to be taken?
4) If the purpose of taking illicit drugs is to get “high” for the sake of enjoying personal life, then how did we, as society, come to accept doing drugs as an means to reach the pinnacle of life enjoyment? In order words, how did we or some people come to accept getting high as a way of enjoying life? And after you reach that high, then what? What do you think?
5) When people do drugs, they don’t think about losing their mind; however, some do as abnormal chemical reactions to the body alter their brain and reasoning. If drugs alter human mind and brain, do you think it is okay for people to do drugs – why or why not?
6) If you were the first police officer to arrive at a scene where the suspect is obviously under the influence of something, drugs perhaps, describe how would you handle the situations before other officers arrive to help you?
7) For most people who get high on drugs, who do you think their behavior glorifies the most – good (God) or evil (Satan)? If you do not believe in the concept of deity, then answer this question based on what you have seen growing up, have read about or heard on the news, or have witnessed either through direct or indirect life experience?

The goal of this assignment is to explain how specific sociological elements are

The goal of this assignment is to explain how specific sociological elements are present in an in-depth manner as it pertains to deviance. This is not a film summary nor a film review.
For the film you have chosen, students will analyze the content for sociological perspectives as it pertains to deviance in an in-depth manner. This paper should follow standard 5 paragraph essay format. Your introduction must briefly summarize the film and include a detailed thesis. The thesis statement must clearly identify how that particular film shows evidence of the specific concepts found in the film. An example would be:
“The 1988 film “Stand and Deliver” represents a clear analysis of achieved status, as well as ethnic and economic stigma through the conflict perspective”
For the body paragraphs, you should select 3-4 terms from the chapter on deviance that you will be able to identify from the film as examples in your analysis. You should include a definition of the term prior to giving examples of that term. Also, make a reference to how your examples (from the film) are reflections of that term. Each paragraph should be dedicated to evaluating a specific term.
A conclusion paragraph should wrap up your ideas and reinforce your thesis. Points to remember: Incorporate at least 3 concepts pertaining to deviance. Clearly identify and explain at least one major theoretical perspective when analyzing the film. Show clear comprehension of one or more of the key concepts.
Respond to their ideas regarding their film, especially if you have seen the film.
