- Analysis Of The Hounds Of Tindalos - 1,873 words
Analysis Of The Hounds Of Tindalos Textual Analysis The Hounds of Tindalos The Hounds of Tindalos is a short science fiction story containing many and varied elements that have been long associated with the genre of science fiction.

- Escapism In Young Sherlock Holmes - 290 words

The mystery begins when a few certain men are injected with a hallucinogen and they imagine inanimate objects coming alive and trying to kill them. Among other things, a man imagines his dinner attacking him and another sees a stained glass figure come alive and try to kill him. All of the men injected with the hallucinogen end up dead. This results from their reactions to the drug. Throughout the movie, not only are these men targeted and attacked with the drug, but so are the three main charact ...

Legalizing Marijuana Davis 7 Legalizing Marijuana Marijuana is the name for the drug that comes from the leaves and flowers of the Indian hemp plant, Cannabis sativa. It is a tobacco-like substance produced by drying the leaves and flowery top of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is usually smoked as a cigarette called a joint or in a pipe or bong. Recently, it has appeared in cigars called blunts which are longer. This drug is a mild hallucinogen, meaning that it distorts sensory perceptions. The intoxicating part of the plant lies mostly in its strong-smelling, sticky, golden resin. This is given off by the hemp flowers, especially those of the female plant. The resin protects the plant from h ...

... the nausea and vomiting that go along with certain cancer treatments. Another chemical related to THC (nabilone) has also been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treating cancer patients who suffer nausea. The oral THC is also used to help AIDS patients eat more to keep up their weight. Scientists are studying whether THC and related chemicals in marijuana (called cannabinoids) may have other medical uses. Some think that these chemicals could be useful for treating severe pain. But further research is needed before such compounds can be recommended for treatment of medical problems.

A number of subsequent observations have called this theory into doubt however. Low doses of LSD effect behavior but do not depress firing in the RN.8 The behavioral effects of LSD outlast the modification of RNN firing.8 While repeated dosage of LSD results in a decrease of behavioral modifications (tolerance), its effects on the RN are unchanged.8 Other hallucinogens such as mescaline and DOM do not effect R neurons.8 Depletion of 5-HT does not eliminate the effectivenes ...

- Us Drug Policy - 623 words
Us Drug Policy Q. Would the Amsterdam model be a useful government response to hallucinogen and marijuana use in this country? Why or why not?

Is a more laissez-faire approach to drugs the answer? We arent winning the war on drugs. It is clear that the illegal drug us ...

- Users Story - 714 words
USERS STORY I had a really bad experience....I ate two hits of orange sunshine. I was off in my own world. Among the highlights of my fourteen hours in hell was watching the flesh burn off my hand (it didn't really..it just seemed like it was), being strangled by the seatbelt which was now a snake, being convinced that a white schoolbus from Charlotte Latin was stalking me in an attempt to kill me and watching myself burn in hell for all eternity several times. Needless to say, I eased up on dosing for awhile, actually a year and a half, during which time I awoke regularly from horrific nightmares during the night, but now it's all good.....viva la LSD!!!! KNOWN AS LSD, Acid, trips, T's, tab ...
