DAR* 102: Taking Sides: Drugs and Society

3 Credits
Many times in our media, in our communities and in our lives we are confronted with issues regarding alcohol and drug use and abuse. For instance, should marijuana be decriminalized or legalized? The purpose of this course is to introduce you to a number of contemporary topics such as the one mentioned, in order to illustrate how we view these issues and some of the controversies they produce. Because of complex human affairs, there are no easy answers to many of the dilemmas we may examine. When confronted by differing opinions and points of view, it is necessary to develop the ability to comprehend, evaluate and make decisions in the face of uncertainty. The use of basic critical thinking skills and educational research will be incorporated in this course to better understand these differences.
