Hip-Hop Music Blamed for Encouraging Drug Use

I'm sorry but I think this is kinda silly . . .

(HEALTHDAY)

MONDAY, March 5, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Hip-hop music may be influencing black Americans to try the street drug molly, a new study suggests.

Molly -- the powder or crystal form of ecstasy -- is a stimulant and hallucinogenic.

University of South Florida researchers surveyed young black adults who said they'd tried molly. The investigators found that 82 percent of them said hip-hop music had influenced their decision to try the drug.

The researchers noted that many hip-hop songs promote the drug as a way to party and reduce sexual inhibitions without the risks that come with such drugs as heroin and crack.

"Molly, although not as dangerous as opioids, has been linked to psychiatric problems, sexual risk taking and adverse health outcomes like seizures, irregular heartbeat, hyperthermia and even death," the study's lead author, Khary Rigg, said in a university news release. He's a professor of mental health law and policy at the school.

"The behaviors of millennial African Americans are probably the most likely to be influenced by hip-hop music as the artists themselves are typically from that demographic," Rigg said.

"This suggests that rappers may be effective sources for prevention, health promotion and harm-reduction messages aimed at African Americans," he added.

Previous studies have found that hip-hop music can influence listeners' use of alcohol and marijuana. But the researchers behind the new study said this was the first to find a link between hip-hop and molly.

The study was published online recently in the Journal of Ethnicity in Substance Abuse.

How to put it politely --


Freeway Rick Ross, in the days of Geraldo and the MiB's with aviator shades, did not have the means to grow, manufacture, and transport the starting materials, in the tight living situation of the inner inner city.



They were mad at Obama, because they had to go barefoot, scrounge for Ramen and boxes of cornbread mix. They were supposedly illiterate because of impossible conditions in their schools. They stole brand name sodas and laundry detergent, which they used as an alternative form of currency, yet  perform complicated science projects and build a transnational distro hub, so large, it seems to make up the bulk of the real economy?

:cookiemonster:

I'm not saying they are perfect, by a longshot(!), but this is a scapegoat.

Some hip hop makes a statement against bad life decisions. It seems that independent producers are all dissidents.

Their supremist, separatists want people to make things for themselves, when they can see beyond the purge.

Any music artist who sings about doing drugs clearly influences their audience.  Anything popular artists talk about becomes cool.  In this case, the question is whether or not that's a bad thing.  I think promoting MDMA is mostly a good thing. 

What got me very concerned was the promotion of opiates and benzos by new artists.

It's not in anyone's personal ability to become popular, without a too-big-to-fail sponsor, or you would have been rich, by now.

Yep I remember hearing my first rap song and immediately wanting to go and smoke some dope with my friends!

So stupid lol...

If you are a certain type of person, music or video games are not the cause.

Companies pay music artists millions of dollars to say they use their product.  Why?  Because they know the fans are heavily influenced by the artist and will go buy the product.  That's just a fact.  So why wouldn't it work the same when a rapper is telling you that they like drugs?  Snoop Dogg once said that he takes partial credit for the black community moving from cocaine to marijuana in the early 90's.  Because he made it cool to smoke pot instead of do coke. 

If you don't agree with me then don't even respond because you're just not going to be able to get it and I'm not going to go back and forth about something so obvious.

There is an ethical difference, between a loyal member of some in-group or a counter culture.

Or, if he is a collaborator. You're dealing with a kapo or a coconut, as though the world revolves around him.

The kind of gangmembers, who are providing social services, to their own communities, independently, do not like for drugs to be sold to their own people, even if they are using it as a fundraiser. They understand that it's damaging, according to criminal lore.

Someone with objective morality, to begin with -- a fair person -- is not going to be brainwashed by electronic media. We understand when something is kitsch, blacksploitation.

I honestly can't disagree with this. Hip Hop didn't make me do drugs, but it does make you want to more than you might have already. Part of the reason I listen to hip hop though is because I like that hip hop artists aren't afraid to curse and rap about sex or drugs. So part of the reason is that I'm already drawn to that kind of stuff, but I did find that hip hop probably played an influence in me trying lean (only done it three times in two years though).

That being said, I don't really care if they are promoting drug use because I think weed and molly is good. I think people should at least try them. I'm not saying this to say that rappers should stop doing it, I don't see anything wrong with what they're doing.

I do lots of drugs listening to hip hop lol

Doesn't mean that one caused the other though.

I've also drank milk before.

Oh and water.  All on drugs!

Morel of the story, correlation does not equal a cause and effect relationship.
