The notion that a state of freedom exists in America is completely voided by narcotic laws. Narcotic laws cause a black market, which raises the prices of drugs to astronomical levels. These high prices cause drug addicts to turn to crime in order to support their habit. There exists substantial evidence that marijuana is less harmful than legal product like alcohol o

Edgar Allen Poe Edgar Allen Poe\'s life problems had a profound impact on his various short stories and poems. Poe\'s problems started seemingly right after birth. His biological father, David Poe, Jr., was an alcoholic and often abused Poe (Encyclopedia Americana, 274-275). Shortly after the age of two, Poe\'s mother died. He only had memories of her vomiting and being carried away by sinister men dressed in black, as he put it (American Writers III). There has been some speculation as to ho

Poes Grotesque
Poes Grotesque Poe is a very complicated author. His literary works are perplexed, disturbing, and even grotesque. His frequent illnesses may have provoked his engrossment in such things. In 1842 Dr. John W. Francis diagnosed Poe with sympathetic heart trouble as well as brain congestion. He also noted Poe\'s inability to withstand stimulants such as drugs and alcohol (Phillips 1508). These factors may have motivated him to write The Tell-Tale-Heart, The Cask of Amontillado, and The Black Cat.

Poe\'s The Raven displays his poetical prowess through the use of his method to writing, diction and literary techniques. Like
