Assignment Instructions – Drugs of Abuse and The Poly Drug User
Read about the Drug Categories on the DRE website. Using your textbook, the DEA Drugs of Abuse article, and two other sources, write a five (5) page (APA) formatted research paper. Five pages mean five pages of narrative text. The cover page, abstract and resource page does NOT count toward the length of the assignment.
Topic: Select two of the seven drug categories and compare and contrast the following issues:
- Compare and contrast drug abuse factors between the two categories
- Effects on the human body including symptomology
- Identification and packaging
- Methods of ingestion
- Trafficking trends for the two drug categories
- Issues in criminality
WARNING: Select two categories not two drugs; for example you cannot select cocaine and methamphetamine because they are both in the stimulant category.
