medical multi-part question

I’m working on a health & medical multi-part question and need support to help me learn.

 

Read all three (3) articles (1. Drugs and the Media, 2. Public Enemy Number One, and 3. Miracle Drug, Poison, or Placebo: Patients’ Experiences with Antidepressant Medications as Described in Postings on an Online Message). As part of your discussion, answer the following five (5) questions:

  • According to the author of each article, what has been and is the role of the mass media?
  • How is social media (YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) changing the landscape regarding “drug messages”?
  • What new forms of or enhancements to social media can you envision over the next 5 years? How will be media’s role and hence its impact change in the future?
  • How can the Pharmacists’ voices be heard in this new media environment?
  • Given the rapidly moving marijuana legalization landscape, what biases now seem to be present in Nixon’s “War on Drugs”?

You are encouraged to look at additional current references from the literature (which you must properly cite) to support your points. Limit your initial post to no more than 500 words.
