  4. 1) *LSD was first synthesized from a fungus that grows on rye and other grains.
    *Tolerance to the effects of LSD develops quickly and users must increase their intake of LSD to get the same effects.
    *LSD has a chemical structure that is very similar to the neurotransmitter called serotonin.

    *Morphine is easily converted to heroin by a chemical process.
    *Heroin crosses through the blood brain barrier 100 times faster than morphine because it is highly soluble in lipids.
    *The overall effect of heroin is a depression of the central nervous system.

    *PCP users are often characterized as violent or suicidal.
    *PCP is classified as a dissociative anesthetic because users appear to be "disconnected" from their environment: they know where they are, but they do not feel as if they are part of it.
    *PCP can be eaten, snorted, injected or smoked.



    2) *LSD is also known as Lysergic acid diethylamide.
    *Heroin is also known as crank.
    *PCP is also Phencyclidine.

    3) I've never really had an opinion about LSD, Heroin, or PCP except that they are really dangerous drugs. After reading this information about these drugs, they are pretty much exactly as harmful as I thought them to be.

  28. Marijuana: Facts I diddn't know were that THC stands for delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, that we have THC like stuff in our brain called anandamide, and that it can be brewed like tea(I knew about the brownies and stuff though).Other names for marijuana are weed,grass,reefer,and pot. No my opinion towards marijuana has not changed in that I think it should be legal, its more safe than alcohol and tobacco yet people tend to overeact about it and think its bad simply because it is illegal(not saying its safe, no drug is completely safe)

    PCP: facts I diddn't know were it was made in 1950s as a anesthetic, it is sometimes sold in place of drugs like LSD, it stopped being sold legally once some people had psychotic reactions after using the drug. other names for the drug are angel dust,DOA,Peace pill, and Hog. no my opinion has not changed

    Barbiturates: facts, used as sedatives, first made in the 1860s in germany, often called sleeping pills. other names include yellow jackets, blues, reds, and rainbows. my opinion has not changed.

  29. LSD:
    i did not know that LSD was first synthesized from a fungus on rye and other grains. or that it was discovered by a Swiss chemist who discovered it in 1938 and intended to used it to stimulate circulation and respiration. or that it was made illigal by The Controlled Substances Act of 1970. it is also known as "acid". i find it interesting to see what it was intended for and then how it turned out.

    PCP:
    PCP is also known as "Angel Dust," "Hog," "Rocket Fuel," "DOA," "Peace Pill". PCP was developed in the 1950s. it was originally used as an anesthetic the effects are felt within 2-5 minutes (when smoked). i found it surprising that people would want to take something that the site said could make you violent or suicidal. arent drugs supposed to make you feel better? i dont think that helps.

    Ritalin:
    i was surprised to learn that antidepressants and stimulants given to children 2-4 years old had doubled or tripled since 1991 to 1995. and that they've done no studies on the effects of the drugs on children who're under age six. though its better to know there is a study on Ritalin in children under six, so we can know for the future. i didnt find any other names for this drug. i think it is unfortunate that its too easy to get. kinda scary its being precribed to kids.

    3.) Has your opinion on the topic change? Explain.

    No not really, Im pretty mch against drugs in general


    Marijuana
    1.) List 3 facts you learned from each you did not know before exploring the website.

    - There are approximately 300 Million users worldwide
    - Tetrahydrocannabinol(THC) acts on Cannabinoid receptors
    - Anandamide is the brains own THC, Scientists still do not know what anandamide's function is

    2.) What are some other names for this substance?

    - grass, pot, reefer, weed, mary jane, etc.

    3.) Has your opinion on the topic change? Explain.

    Not really i mean so much as i can see, pots really not that harmful to the body, no more harmful than smoking at least. If you wanna waste your time smokin weed all the time, your pretty much a loser. But hey, its a free country be a loser if you want to, i'm not gonna try to stop you if i dont know you.


    Alcohol
    1.) List 3 facts you learned from each you did not know before exploring the website.

    - alcohol gets into the bloodstream very easily and also crosses the blood brain barrier.
    - More severe withdrawal symptoms include hallucinations and even seizures.
    - Because alcohol passes easily through the placenta, every time the mother drinks alcohol, the developing fetus gets a dose of alcohol.

    2.) What are some other names for this substance?

    - alky, booze, canned heat, cocktail, drink, ethanol, firewater, hard stuff, hootch, intoxicant, liquor, methanol, moonshine, palliative, red-eye, rotgut, sauce, smoke*, spirits, tipple, toddy

    3.) Has your opinion on the topic change? Explain.

    once again, Not really, alcohol can be a deadly drug if misused. but social drinking is not a new idea. i think teenagers make to big a deal out of looking cool by drinking alcohol and getting to be popular with people who are legally able to drink. I'm not gonna lie, ive had my share of "crackers" but i've drank mostly for the taste not the feeling, or the popularity bonus. and i dont ever plan on getting totally wasted either.
