Student Forum: Soc 420: Narcotic Hedonism

We will have two info sessions for our class:

Thursday, January 20th 7-8:30
…Monday, January 24th 7-8:30

The class is a pass/fail full credit course.

The purpose of this student forum is to discuss the relationship between society and it’s fascination and rejection of hedonistic drug use. Society has always frowned upon drug use and has held strong to the mantra of a drug free society. Our class aims to investigate whether this is an ethical and attainable goal. Historically, mankind has never had a drug free society and has found various uses for drugs such as recreation, medicinal purposes, spiritual experiences and an enhanced perception of reality. However, with the rise of the Western world, western value and religion, perceptions regarding the use of mind-altering substances started to change drastically.
