What interests me about it being deviant? I just remember being in Elementary school and learning that drugs were bad for you and to always say no to drugs. If it was known as a gateway drug 20 years ago what has changed? 2). Give a very brief history of the form of deviance(has it always been deviant, is this a recent situation, etc?) Yes, this has always been tabled as deviant. 3). Who has decided that this behavior is deviant? I feel as though during the 40s and 50s was the worst time for marijuana to be looked down on by most Americans. It was viewed as a really bad thing to do but nowadays we use the drug for medical purposes. 4). Then you will prepare a 4-5 page research paper on the topic that you have chosen, answering questions 1-4 in essay form. You will expand items 2-4 in detail, giving examples of the behavior and societys reaction to it.Please use APA style, with in-text citations and a Works Cited page. You will be graded on how well you answer the questions and the thoroughness of your research. Please use at least two academic sources in addition to other sources.
