9.) How did modern techniques of producing drugs and drug foods (including techniques of mass production and of chemical purification and synthesis) change drug use? What kind of problems seem to have arisen as a result? Modern techniques of producing drugs had many of the same effects on different societies. As for alcohol, beer was a necessity in the 17 th century in many societies. Everyone from women to children drank it and was accepted. In the 18 th century liquor came about and changed the way people thought of alcohol. This new substance allowed people to drink one tenth of the amount they would of beer and have the same effect of inebriation. As the demand for liquor rose, it started being mass produced and the price dropped. Since liquor had such a high alcohol content and was cheap people began over indulging. In England alcoholism destroyed traditional ways of life and labor. Gin erupted through England like a volcano; the English were used to consuming large quantities of beer and consumed the same amount of gin which led to a social catastrophe.

    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.
