  • The importance of friendship networks and drug sharing is a well-documented feature of marijuana use. Recent studies show an increased role of acquiring marijuana through friends, especially in settings with rather punitive drug policy. This article aims at gaining insight into the definitions and roles that marijuana users attribute to friendship. Forty-four marijuana users and retailers recruited in North Central Florida were subjected to semistructured interviews, with extensive probes on respondents' friends. Data were analyzed with the use of inductive analysis, and were framed in identity theory.

  • Unfortunately, like the second-grader who finds out the consequences of popping a wheelie to wow the first-graders, I learned the consequences of showing off my newfound coolness for my friends one night and wiped out in a parking lot near my house. The injuries weren't serious, although the scrape on my foot forced me to miss a week of work. It might have even been something to laugh about later, but in the midst of dressing my wounds at 3 a.m., I neglected to lock up my moped. When I hobbled downstairs the next morning at 11 a.m., the Red 'Ped had vanished. Leaving out the more private, melodramatic details, like the fist-shaking tirade I unleashed at God for being such a jerk the past few months, I immediately called the police department.

  • IRONY COMPOUNDS on confusion in the Schapelle Corby case. Australia has just experienced its first terrorist attack -- and everything points to dinky-di Aussies as being the culprits. Just as an Indonesian court found it impossible to overlook the fact that it was Corby's luggage that contained the sack of marijuana, it is difficult to escape the conclusion that a lunatic fringe of her supporters sent the frightening biological agent to the Indonesian embassy in Canberra. If Corby really is innocent -- and, putting aside emotion and gut-instincts, only she and perhaps a handful of others know this for sure -- her only chance of escaping the Bali court's 20-year jail sentence lies in the calm and professional assessment of the evidence and the legal options, and in the delicate world of ...
