Heroin Essay

The prevalent use of illicit substances in the social content, exclusively heroin, has stimulated the attention of the political realm, which in turn has introduced the enforcement of several drug policies within Australia. The utilisation of these drugs has developed into a social and wellbeing issue, rather than just a matter of criminal justice with credits to the ever-changing attitude in today’s society, emphasising on the need for the advancement in unbiased research. Heroin, as defined by the National Institute of Drug abuse is an illicit and highly addictive substance which is processed from morphine and can be found in various form, with the most common being white powder and is mainly injected into the body. Lewis (2011) depicts the practice as being a ‘ritual (p137)’ capturing the societal attractions dependent on the use of illegal drugs. Traditionally, the utilisation of heroin increased drastically without the society understanding the health, social or political aspects. Though, with the establishment of exclusion policies, many research showed the concurrent factor linked to heroin-related overdoses and the decrease in price (Bryant et al., 2004; Darke, Topp, Kaye & Hall, 2002). The indications confirm the dire need to further research about illicit drugs in the social realm and also suggest the importance in effective policy decisions.

ANTH106 Essay

This student studied:
Macquarie University - ANTH106 - Drugs Across Culture

77/100 Changing Representations of Illicit Drug use, trafficking and addiction portrayed through film and music Distinction Susan Boyd’s Plain and Pleasure (2011) aims to explore the differing representations of drug consumption, trafficking and addiction through film and music from texts stretching between 1920’s to 2010’s, as a means to understand the complexity of such representations within popular culture. Boyd presents views about drugs use and dealing, through texts of film and music. There’s an emphasise on drugs being dangerous and causing violence but also explores the aspects of bringing pleasure. This contradicts Robin Bunton and John Conveney In Pursuit of the Study of Pleasure: Implications for Health Research and Practice as they expounded that representations of drugs varied from culture to culture (2003). Boyd however disagrees with such views, ultimately arguing that the differing representations point more to alternative awareness and drug policies in different cultures (2011, 69).
