1-16-08 U.S. Drug Laws Drug laws have limited effectiveness in reducing overall illicit drug availability and use San Francisco Ordinance (1875) – opium dens banned Pure Food and Drug Act (1906) – first federal legislation designed to control opiate addiction (labeling law) o If people have a problem with morphine, a 100% morphine product they would presumably stay away from… Not necessarily. Harrison Narcotic Act (1914) – regulated legal supply of drugs like opium Alcohol Prohibition (1920) – Congress passed 18 th amendment to the constitution prohibiting production, sale, transportation, and importing of alcohol o Rampant alcoholism – national average was 5 drinks/day/person, and most women didn’t drink. You could obtain a prescription for a drink for “medical purposes” from your doctor and get it filled at a local drug store There were many ways of working around the 18 th Amendment but this was the only legal one.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
