Create a Purpose Statement

This week, your task is to create a purpose statement for your proposed study. It needs to indicate the intent, goal, and rationale for researching the problem addressed in Assignment 2. The purpose statement should begin with “The purpose of this (quantitative or qualitative) study is to . . .” Use the following list to create the purpose statement, which should be approximately one page:
Study method
Study design
Constructs/variables
Target population
Research setting
Sampling frame
Sampling method
Sample size (justified by scholarly sources and a power analysis for quantitative studies)
Data collection method (including instrumentation)
Data analysis method
Software to be used for analysis
Closing statement as to how the study results may inform theory
Length: approximately 1 page
Your purpose statement should be directly aligned with the problem statement. Be sure that you have incorporated any feedback you have received from your professor into your problem statement.

Drug Use: An OverviewAs we begin, I would like to state that this course in itself is an “overview” of drugs and alcohol in our society. Each one of our chapters could easily be made into a separate class. Many different concepts and facts about drugs and alcohol in our society have been compacted into this text book. From the laws, to the effects on the brain, to how drugs are classified, to Central Nervous System drugs, to social issues, to public misnomers and finally to the difficulties we encounter in simply defining what a drug is — all of these issues should make us realize that concepts such as drug abuse will be very difficult to understand.
The first chapter is entitled “overview” and takes the approach of asking who is taking the drugs, what drugs are being taken and when, where, and why as critical questions to be answered when analyzing drug taking. This discussion includes the topics of pharmacological revolutions and recent trends in drug taking. The chapter concludes by discussing possible correlations and antecedents of drug use. This is a very interesting scientific question. Can we measure any behaviors that tend to occur with or prior to drug use? If we can, is it possible to identify possible risk factors for drug abuse such as the use of gateway substances? If we could get even close to the answers to these questions, we may be able to solve the global drug problem on our planet, or- at least contain it to a manageable issue.
Numerous events have occurred throughout history that have changed how people view drug use and abuse, as well as which drugs are acceptable or unacceptable to use. In the course of your own life think of events that have caused you to examine your beliefs regarding drug use, abuse and acceptability of certain drugs.
Drug use among teenagers has been a hot topic for decades. I remember being a part of a survey in 1969 at Redlands High School, and they have been taking these surveys yearly ever since. Many teenagers are often under the impression that drug use by other teens is extremely prevalent.
Here are some national survey results regarding teenagers’ perceptions and attitudes of drug abuse from “Monitoring the Future”, (MTF), a watchdog surveyor.
MTF has been surveying high school students since 1975 and the Survey participants report their drug use behaviors across three time periods: lifetime, past year, and past month. Overall, 43,703 students from 360 public and private schools participated in this year’s Monitoring the Future survey. The survey is funded by the NIDA, a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and conducted by the University of Michigan.
2017 Monitoring the Future Survey
This year’s Monitoring the Future (MTF) survey of drug use and attitudes among 8th, 10th, and 12th graders in hundreds of schools across the country continues to report promising trends, with past-year use of illicit drugs other than marijuana holding steady at the lowest levels in over two decades–5.8 percent among 8th graders, 9.4 percent among 10th graders, and 13.3 percent among 12th graders. This is down from peak rates of 13.1 percent for 8th graders in 1996, 18.4 percent for 10th graders in 1996, and 21.6 percent for 12th graders in 2001.
Last year, use of many substances reached the lowest levels since the survey’s inception (or since the survey began asking about them) and held steady in 2017, or in some cases, dropped even more. Substances at historic low levels of use include alcohol and cigarettes, heroin, prescription opiods, MDMA (Ecstasy or Molly), methamphetamine, amphetamines, and sedatives. Other illicit drugs showed five-year declines, such as synthetic marijuana, hallucinogens other than LSD, and over-the-counter cough and cold medications. Five-year trends, however, did reveal an increase in LSD use among high school seniors, although use still remains lower compared to its peak in 1996.
The survey also found a general decline in perceived risk of harm from using a number of substances and declining disapproval of people who use them. For example, the percentage of 8th graders who think that occasional use of synthetic marijuana or over-the-counter cough and cold medications is less than it was last year and in prior years. Among 10th graders, there was a decrease in the proportion of students who perceive a risk of harm when trying inhalants, powder cocaine, or over-the-counter cough and cold medications once or twice. High school seniors reported reduced perception of harm in occasional cocaine, heroin, and steroid use, and reduced disapproval of trying LSD.
These statistics are in agreement with other surveys that show similar trends. This is a more updated version than your text book is reporting.
