Drug Lecture - Agnes Cancio
This lecture was informative and taught me that caffeine is a psychoactive drug. I never really thought of it as a drug, but now that I think about it, it really is. Many people, including me, need coffee to brighten up their mood or even “feel alive”. It gives many of us energy to stay awake and to focus when in class. It is no shock when the lecture told us that the top frequently used drug is caffeine. Another important part of this lecture was the drugs and natural incentive effects. From this, it really shows drugs are cravings and do not operate like food and water. We only enjoy them once they reach our brains’ pleasure areas.
