Chapter 15 Consenual Crimes: involve people who participate in these behaviors willingly (illegal drug use and gambling?) -These behaviors do more harm than good -These laws increase police and other official corruption, lead consensual offenders to commit other types of crime that they would not commit if their behaviors were legal, generate public disrespect for the law, divert time and money from fighting more serious crime to futile efforts to stop what so many people want to do, prompt law enforcement agencies to engage in wiretapping and other violations of liberties, and provide much of the revenue for organized crime – directly from the textbook Main Areas: Drugs, Prostitution, and Porn Drugs 1) drug abuse and 2) addiction --(know the separation between the two from the book) Abuse: abnormal use (not a consistent understanding of this) -negative repercussions -illegal use does not = abuse (smoking a joint once at a party) Addiction: -originally introduced because it was associated with alcohol -the term really meant psychological dependence and development of tolerance (need more of it to feel same effect) -not necessarily a problematic type of thing (R&R), however, when you get into psychological dependence then you really get into a different term Tolerance: no measure of it (no test) -only one way to test it: if they have withdrawal symptoms Withdrawal: differs for different drugs -sometimes medical intervention is necessary Clinical Analysis: use the term dependence -talk about psychological dependence and physiological repercussions Habit: something about your behavior that offers a predictability to your life Politics: good habits and bad habits (line between the 2 depends on your politics) Bad: addict Good: not an addict, you just have problems -When you disturb a pattern you get a psychological effect -That doesn’t indicate medical attention needed, more to do with attitudes Drug Schedules 1. worst drugs in terms of abuse potential also few legal uses …. 5. not as bad where does marijuana stand?? SCHEDULE 1
