Final Post

This class was full of extremely interesting information. There was never a dull moment and I was never bored listening to the interesting things or watching the videos. The videos were excellent, entertaining sources to help understand the meaning behind the PowerPoints. Although the entire class was based off of interesting information the topic I took most interest in was drug addiction.
The topic drug addiction was so interesting to see because there are so many people today that are addicted to drugs. It is crazy to see how one drug could help one person and physically harm another. One of the main drugs that I think are the most abused are pain pills. Pain pills will pretty much be given to anybody that has a complaint about pain and if they do not wish to take them, they will see them for a massive amount of money.
Below is a video trailer from a documentary called Vanguard. Vanguard researches different issues around the world and this one was based off of Oxycontin. I watched this episode on demand because I really do enjoy this show. This episode showed many of the different pain management facilities and how they will just give pills to anybody.


  1. I agree that it is fascinating how a drug can help one person and destroy another; the idea that one person's body can have such a reaction to a drug in comparison to another person is mind boggling.

  2. pills or opiates are on a dangerous incline. more than ever i see pills as the new drug of choice.Pharmaceuticals sales are larger than they have ever been.this cant be good. be smart dont do pills, pick something less aggressive like canabis
