Drugs like Nicotine and Ephedrine were created because some researchers found that when used on people with pain, or a disease that the people felt better. But also some people found a way to make drugs bad, addictive and harmful to the people that consume it, making it illegal. The topic of use of illegal drugs has been an issue since the early 80’s because its use became very well known at a fast rate due to the euphoric feeling gotten from it. One type of illegal drugs commonly used now is called Hashish.
Hashish sometimes called hash, shish, hemp or afgani is a type of cannabis and as stated in the GoodDrugsGuide website, cannabis is the most commonly used illicit mind altering drug used in the world, one of the reason it’s illegal. The origin of Hashish is believed to have come from West Asia because the cannabis plant was widely available there and its use can be dated as far back as the earliest century. Hashish is gotten from the female cannabis plant called the Cannabis sativa which has a chemical called the Tetrahydrocannibinol or THC for short; this chemical is what is responsible for the euphoric feeling in hash. Due to the fact that hashish is in the cannabis family where most of the other members are street drugs makes it a street drug because it is easily produced from the plant. One way it’s extracted according to hashishnet website is by rubbing the cannabis plant on the palms of the hand and a residue called a resin stick to the hands, which is then collected from the hands. Another way it’s extracted according to soberliving.com is through alcohol extraction this method is dangerous because of the flammable substance used, the cannabis plant is grounded and covered up in alcohol or butane and the mixture gotten is evaporated and the residue left is hashish or Hash oil.

Gen Me

...the country but also in how Egyptians handled their lives. However, the latest Egyptian generations are the most highly criticized ones because of the huge differences of attitudes between Baby Boomers and them. But are they like the American GenMe that author Jean M. Twenge described in her book "GenMe: An Army Of One"? Looking upon the different parenting styles, schools, education systems, and the 25th of January revolution, that had a great impact on the Egyptian society, American GenMe is so unlikely to be put in comparison with Egyptian GenY. In Egypt, Parents act as barriers for their children not to pursue their goals. They always force them to study for a certain major just because they want them to carry a certain title (Hashish). Egyptian parents undermine their children's ambitions as if they don't deserve to follow them. Such reason contradicts what Twenge says about the American GenMe who believe that everyone should follow his/her dream and that one must do what makes him/her happy and do what is best for him/her (Army of One 8). Moreover, Egyptian GenY may choose to study a certain major rather than the one they prefer because the idea of unemployment is hunting them. They are not always free to choose because they are uncertain of what could happen. Unlike them, American GenMe take anything for granted, they put themselves on the top of the list and it does not matter what could happen (Army of One 9). Parents in Egypt get caught up with their career......

Drug Trafficking

...Drug trafficking is an illegal drug trading system to which drugs are brought from other countries into the United States; to list just a few of these drugs; cocaine, heroin, hashish, marijuana, LSD, ecstasy, methamphetamines, and opiates. Terrorists are being funded by many of these drug trafficking operations in America. Another huge issue in The United States is the drug trafficking inside our country. In Florida and Texas, it is epidemic, the pill mills and grow houses are a major concern because they are supplying the entire United States with access to these drugs at a steady rate. As a result, there are many individuals and families that are being affected by addiction, illness, overdose, and death. The United States Government believes they have this under control and are helping to solve the situation, but in reality, drug trafficking in the United States is out of control. “Drug Trafficking is an activity that involves the cultivation, manufacturing, processing, importation and distribution of drugs” (Desroches, 2007). Going down the line of drug trade you have what is similar to an assembly line. You have the manufacturer or grower who grows and makes the actual drug which then is processed and packaged to be smuggled into the country. Eventually, making its way into America’s neighborhoods, by which is called the dealers. This is a process that has no end, because once one batch or shipment of drugs is distributed, there is already another on its way into America...

Marijuana Legalization

...that frequent Marijuana use can seriously affect your short-term memory and impair your cognitive ability. Smoking anything, whether it’s tobacco or Marijuana, can seriously damage your lung tissue after long use. Some of the main chemicals in Marijuana that cause the psychoactive and pain-reliving effects is tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC for short, Cannabidiol, Cannabinol, and Tetrahydrocannabivarin. There are several different types and strains of the plant. The two main types are Cannabis Indica and Cannabis sativa. There is also hashish, which is a Cannabis product made up of compressed preparations of resin from the trichome gland of the female plant. Cannabis Sativa is an annual, leafy plant that is used for industrial fiber, seed oil, and food. When smoked, Cannabis sativa strains produce more of a euphoric high, lifting the user’s mood, and relieving stress. Cannabis indica is also an annual plant, and is mainly grown for the production of hashish. When smoked, it relaxes muscles and works as a general analgesic. Users say that it gives them more of a “stoned” feeling than “high”. It also helps with sleep. A cancer patient dealing with body pain would benefit most from this plant, when a person dealing with depression would benefit with the sativa. There is also synthetic marijuana, which was created in a lab and usually sold in stores as incense. It has street names such as “Spice”, “Black Mamba”, “K2”, and “Fake Marijuana”.

The different types of illegal drugs that are smuggled into Canada include cocaine, heroin, hashish, liquid hashish, marijuana, and chemical drugs such as ecstasy, methamphetamine, GHB, Rohypnol, and LSD. The amounts of these drugs vary from a large amount to not such a large amount. For example, “Approximately 15 to 24 tonnes of cocaine enter Canada each year, the potential annual demand for heroin in Canada ranges between one and two tonnes. This is based on an estimated addict population of 25,000 to 50,000, with an average daily consumption of 0.2 grams of 50% pure heroin, or 36.5 grams of pure heroin per addict each year…. Based on the preceding factors and intelligence on multi-tonne hashish shipments seized in Canada and abroad and those known to have entered the Canadian market, analysts estimate that at least 100 tonnes of this drug enter Canada every year….

...Cannabis indica omfatter angiveligt oprindelige sorter fra Afghanistan, Marokko og Tibet. Indica-sorterne bliver i disse dele af verdenen brugt til at producere hashish, muligvis fordi Indica planten er lav, ca. 30–200 cm. C. indica er fra naturens hånd en en-årig plante, men den kan som alle Cannabis kemotyper overleve mange år og opnå uhyrlige størrelser via manipulation med fotoperioden, uden at gå i blomst vel at mærke. Bladene på planten sidder tæt og er ofte mere mørkegrønne, brede og groft takkede end Cannabis sativa blade. C. indica blomsterne sidder i nogle mere samlede og større, federe skud. Planternes blomst har en meget stærk, krydret og kraftig duft. Planten går hurtigere i blomst end C. sativa fordi fotoperioden i dele af verden kategoriseret som oprindelsesregioner for C. indica er kortere. Planten skal altså med andre ord skynde sig mere i disse dele af verdenen. Cannabis indica's evne til at producere langt flere glandulære trichomer (mikroskopiske kirtler indeholdende psykoaktive- og aromatiske kemiske forbindelser, der dækker den blomstrende hunplante) end Cannabis sativa eller C. ruderalis. Dette er forbundet med dens evne til at give en forøget produktion af hashish, som er de opsamlede, sammenpressede glandulære trichomer i titusind-, måske endda millionvis. Dog indeholder disse sorter ofte mindre mængder af Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC'er) og større mængder af CBD'er, CBN'er og CBC'er (sløvende forbindelser, som antages at indgå som byggeklodser for......

Your Brain on Drugs

...hiding the usage that I didn’t draw attention to what I was doing. I know when I was at work it was much easier to hide because I am my own boss, so I don’t have anyone looking over my shoulder. I am in and out of customers’ homes all throughout the install so that’s why I think there were no reactions from my customers. Now at home I did get questioned why I was making so many trips to the bathroom, which was easily dismissed by telling my wife I drank too much. I do believe that if this exercise was longer than 48 hours my wife would have definitely noticed the change in behavior. Neurotransmitters and Drugs Cannabis is plant from which we get marijuana, hashish, and THC. The usual method of ingestion would be smoking it, but it can also be consumed orally. Marijuana is a mixture of leaves, flowers, stems, and seeds, hashish is made from the resin of the cannabis plant, and THC the active chemical ingredient in cannabis can be synthesized for research (Weiton, 2014). When smoked this drug has an immediate effect, causing a mild relaxed euphoria and enhanced sensory awareness. This drug affects several neurotransmitters dopamine norepinephrine, serotonin. The dopamine being released helps create the relaxed euphoria. The norepinephrine being released in your system creates your enhanced sensory awareness. The serotonin that is released in to your system can affect a few things, the first being the uncontrollable appetite or the “munchies” as most people would say, and the......

Short History of Marijuana Addiction

...Chinese medical reference traditionally considered to date from 2737 B.C. Its use spread from China to India and then to N Africa and reached Europe at least as early as A.D. 500. Marijuana Plants / Cannabis The first direct reference to a cannabis product as a psychoactive agent dates from 2737 BC, in the writings of the Chinese emperor Shen Nung. The focus was on its powers as a medication for rheumatism, gout, malaria, and oddly enough, absent-mindedness. Mention was made of the intoxicating properties, but the medicinal value was considered more important. In India though it was clearly used recreationally. The Muslims too used it recreationally for alcohol consumption was banned by the Koran. It was the Muslims who introduced hashish, whose popularity spread quickly throughout 12th century Persia (Iran) and North Africa. Marijuana in America In 1545 the Spanish brought marijunana to the New World. The English introduced it in Jamestown in 1611 where it became a major commercial crop alongside tobacco and was grown as a source of fiber. By 1890, hemp had been replaced by cotton as a major cash crop in southern states. Some patent medicines during this era contained marijuana, but it was a small percentage compared to the number containing opium or cocaine. It was in the 1920’s that marijuana began to catch on. Some historians say its emergence was brought about by Prohibition. Its recreational use was restricted to jazz musicians and people in show......
