UIASK llcriild News Service LOMOND Parents and young people attended a sem- inar on drugs recently and heard talks by Rev. Harold Coward cf Blairmore and Dr. Reynar of Brooks. It was held in the Lomond School auditorium and was spon- sored by the Lomond Home and School Association. Dr. Reynar explained Uie physical effects of the various drugs. Mr. Coward explained the psychological effects. They said that probably lha most harmful drugs used gen- erally by the public arc tho nicotine "in cigarettes and al- cohol in beverages. The speakers noted most drugs belong in one of four groups: narcotics (pain killers) such as heroin and morphine; sedatives, such as barbiturates (the sleeping tranquiliz- ers and alcohol; stimulants such as amphetamines (pep pills, wake-up pills) and hsllu cinogins or distortionary, such as LSD and marijuana. Those of the first three groups have medical uses which, when administered un- der a physician's care, can he cf much help to a person. People are quickly addicted, both physically and psycholog- ically, to narcotics. The sedatives are of great benefit to many people to re- lieve anxiety. However, they are the ones on which people most commonly get "hooked." One of the chief hazards of over-use of stimulants is that a person can overstimulate his physical capabilites, leading to exhaustion and possible dam- age to his heart and circula- tory system. The greatest problem in using any of these drugs is that one's body develops a tol- erance to them. Greater and greater quantities are required to achieve the same results. LSD, while not addictive, can trigger deep psychological ef- fects that have caused many suicides. The most serious phy- sical effect is that it may cause a breakdown of certain genes which could later result in children or grandchildren being born with deformities. Marijuana involves UK dan- ger llvat it will lead to the use of killing drugs such as speed heroin. In many cases its only attraction is the fact that it is illegal. Possession could result in five years' imprison- ment. The speakers blamed the fol- lowing factors as contributing to the current drug binge, of epidemic proportions in New York and scattered llirougli- out North America: the gener- ation gap; more freedom for youth aixl not enough disci- pline; curiosity; peer group as- sociation; less of religion as the centre of family life; television influence; and loneliness, frus- tration and depression.
