The main part of cannabis and what makes it so dangerous is THC one of the many known chemicals in the plant. Cannabis can be used in many ways including smoking, ingestion through food, or as an extract. My name is Timur Krapivin and I was caught being under the influence of drugs on school grounds. The specific drug that I was caught with was marijuana in the form of an edible. A weed brownie is one of the many forms that marijuana comes in. I regret everything that I did and now know that my decision was very wrong and could have harmed the ones I cared about the most. The substance Abuse Intervention Program really helped me realize how dumb I was for taking this drug. I put my friends and family in danger because it was my first time and I didnt know what was going to happen or how my body would react to it. The main reason for why I did this drug is because I was curious and wanted to try something new. I know now that this decisions was very irresponsible and dumb. I will definitely think before I act now and use the problem solving skills that I learned in the class. I will make better decisions in the future because I want to be able to reach my goals and have a successful life. I can't do these things by wasting my life on drugs. Marijuana is a very dangerous drug, it affects our community in many ways, and has a long history behind it.
Marijuana is a Social Problem "Marijuana is the second most popular drug after alcohol in the country today. So many people smoke marijuana that the numbers alone seem to legitimize and condone its presence in people's lives. Yet, even in moderation marijuana is not 'safe.' Somehow this information had not filtered down to people who think they are smoking a fairly innocuous drug. Our society perpetuates the myths about pot being a fun, harmless, recreational drug. These myths feed into people's denial of marijuana's problems" (Baum 6). However, the abuse of marijuana is a problem. It is not only a personal problem, but also more importantly a social problem.

African Americans are the topic I selected, born in Brooklyn New York the year of 1963, where skin color never mattered to me while living in a melting pot where people from all nationalities migrated. Equally important, I am proud of the accomplishments and strides African Americans have pushed to achieve. On the positive side, I find the good in everyone and believe every American has something to offer in displaying their gifted talents. Provided that, I could be bitter to other races from an incident that happened over forty years ago while visiting my grandparents in Northampton County North Carolina. My grandfather drove us to the local store, as soon as I got out the car with my mom, a little Caucasian girl spit on me, my mom just

Illegal substances are also heavily referenced by the interview candidates. Candidates cited a diverse range of reasons for integrating drugs into their sharing practices. The term ‘drugs’ is mentioned 32 times altogether. In an interview conducted by Joseph Lingle (JAL2, jalingle), the candidate specifically speaks about how sharing marijuana has positive effects of friendships and serves to eliminate the constraints of strict social situations. He says, “One must believe that pot is not inherently bad and spreading it does no harm. Requires it being shared with you. Less the actual drug, but rather the social situation. Alone, you don’t notice certain elements of the high. Introspection during the outward-ness of a social setting. Depth in the relations, being introspective together. A freeing of the mind. The high creates transcendence of social ques through a common euphoria. Certain laws of social propriety are relaxed.”
Despite how certain individuals might feel about the changes that are set to take place, marijuana is not going anywhere. Also identified as pot, weed, or cannabis, marijuana plays a substantial part in California’s culture and business revenue. The usage of weed has been handed a ruthless reputation since the
The legalization of marijuana will make pot harder to buy for kids under the age of eighteen. It might seem counter-intuitive to some, but illegal weed is much easier to acquire than regulated marijuana because weed dealers do not check ID’s. One third of sixteen through seventeen year olds say marijuana is the easiest thing to buy, not cigarettes, alcohol, nor prescription drugs. By keeping weed illegal we are letting unregulated pot dealers control the marijuana market. By letting these unregulated pot dealers control the marijuana market parents are not protecting their kids from access to marijuana. On the other hand aggressive enforcement of ID carding for minors, combined with public education have led to some of the lowest rates of
