The training seminar has set up an Internet Discussion Board for the participants to discuss issues related to licit and illicit drugs. You are asked to discuss cultural differences in the consumption and banning of drugs. As an example, the supervisor mentions that he Church of Latter Day Saints has prohibitions against caffeine and smoking tobacco. You are asked to consider the following questions:

What is a drug?
How long have human societies been using psychoactive drugs? (Give several examples)
Select either nicotine or alcohol as an example and briefly describe the drug’s effects on the brain, on behavior and on a person’s health.
Under what circumstances do you think a drug should be limited or banned? For example, do you think any drug that harms health should be banned or any drug that is addictive should be banned? Explain.
Do you think that it would be a good idea for the United States to completely ban alcohol or nicotine? Explain.
Use the Internet and Library databases in your research. Be sure to cite all references.

Assignment: Drug Use and Abuse

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
