Romil Pitale Monday/Wednesday 2:00-3:15 class Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco What are the interests of this ASA section? 1. This section is interested with the place of alcohol, drugs, and tobacco in a society. This could mean that the researchers in this section want to find the relationship between the alcohol, drugs, and tobacco and the general sociological factors in the surrounding areas. For example, a researcher in this section could be interested in the relationship between the percentage of people in a small area that drinks heavily and the impact it has on the socioeconomic positions held by people in that area. Some other of their interests reside in pushing the frontier of research in the section of Alcohol, Drugs, and Alcohol. In other words, they want to encourage more research in their field because they want more information so that they can inform the public about certain sociological dynamics that occur due to the use and misuse of substances in certain low-income areas. What types of topics do researchers in this section address? 2. The Alcohol, Drugs, and Tobacco section of the ASA delves into the ways that alcohol, drugs, and tobacco use can affect society. It covers the misuse of these substances and how and how the misuse affects the populace around the misusers. It also investigates into how even the proper use of these substances can still affect the general society, especially smaller neighborhoods. The misuse also largely leads to parts of bigger problems, which is something that this section of sociology investigates. How could this research personally enrich your understanding of the world? 3. This research is one of the most practical sections of sociological research. This is because the information derived from research in this section has the potential to save lives. This research would enrich my understanding of the world by allowing me to see how alcohol, drugs, and other substances affect my society. Personally, this research would not have a direct impact on me, because I live in a generally safe area in the suburbs. However, I understand that if I were to move to a new location, this research would aid me in finding a safe place to live. This is because researchers in this section produce information that would help me distinguish between areas with many substance abuse problems just by examining certain sociological factors in an area.

    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.
