21. Q: WHAT DO THE EFFECTS OF DRUGS DEPEND ON?

A: THE TYPE AND AMOUNT TAKEN.

22. Q: WHAT CAUSES THE PHYSICAL DEPENDENCY TO DRUGS?

A: THE HUMAN BODY HAS THE CAPACITY TO DEVELOPE A TOLERANCE TO MANY DRUGS. WHEN THIS HAPPENS, LARGER
AND LARGER DOSES OF THE DRUG ARE REQUIRED TO ACHEIVE THE SAME EFFECT. THE BODY THEN REQUIRES THE
DRUG TO FUNCTION NORMALLY.

3) IN COMBAT, ONE MARINE ILLEGALLY USING DRUGS ENDANGERS THE SURVIVAL OF THE ENTIRE UNIT.
4) ILLEGAL DRUG USE ITSELF IS A BREACH OF UNIT DISCIPLINE.
5) SINCE DRUGS ARE FAIRLY EXPENSIVE, THEIR USE OFTEN LEADS TO THEFT AND OTHER OFFENSES TO RAISE THE
MONEY NEEDED TO BUY THEM. THE RESULT IS A BRAKEDOWN IN DISCIPLINE AND MORALE THAT LEAVE A UNIT
INEFFECTIVE.

27. Q: WHAT ARE SOME OF THE PROBLEMS THE “DRUG TRAFFICER” PRESENTS?

A: 1) PROVIDES THE DRUGS THAT ARE USED ILLEGALLY.
2) TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THE WEAKNESSES OF INDIVIDUALS AND CAUSES THE PROBLEM OF ILLEGAL DRUG USE TO
GROW.

28. Q: WHAT ARE SOME OF THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE INDIVIDUAL MARINE CONCERNING SUBSTANCE ABUSE?

A: 1) DRUG EDUCATION; LEARN WHAT THE EFFECTS OF DRUGS REALLY ARE AND AVOID THEM.
2) CONVINCE FELLOW MARINES THAT THEY SHOULD NOT USE DRUGS.
3) IF YOU CAN’T CONVINCE A FELLOW MARINE NOT TO USE DRUGS, REPORT HIM!
4) DO NOT LET FRIENDSHIP OR NEGATIVE PEER PRESSURE STOP YOU FROM DOING WHAT YOU KNOW IS RIGHT FOR
YOURSELF AND YOUR FELLOW MARINES.

3) LEVEL III – NAVY RESIDENTIAL TREATMENT PROGRAMS.

43. Q: WHAT WAS THE COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS STATEMENT CONCERNING ALCOHOL ABUSE?

A: “THOSE WHO DO NOT MEET THESE STANDARDS WILL BE SEPARATED FROM THE MARINE CORPS. THE PRIVILEGE OF
BEING A MARINE INCLUDES THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR MAINTAINING THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF DISCIPLINE,
CONDUCT, AND PERFORMANCE. ALCOHOL ABUSE IS A FORM OF INDISCIPLINE THAT CAN SERIOUSLY REDUCE THE
OVERALL VALUE AND EFFECTIVENESS OF THE MARINE’S ORGANIZATION, THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO ABUSE ALCOHOL WILL
BE IDENTIFIED AND ASSISTED TO THE DEGREE POSSIBLE, BUT IN ALL CASES, HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS.”

LINE IS TO BE MEASURED.
3) ALIGN THE EDGE OF THE PAPER ALONG A STRAIGHT PORTION OF THE CURVED LINE AND MAKE A TICK MARK ON
BOTH THE PAPER AND THE MAP AT THE END OF THE ALIGNED PORTION.
4) KEEPING BOTH THE TICK MARKS TOGETHER, PLACE THE POINT OF THE PENCIL ON THE PAPER’S TICK MARK TO HOLD
IT IN PLACE.
5) PIVOT THE PAPER UNTIL ANOTHER APPROXIMATELY STRAIGHT PORTION IS ALIGNED, AND AGAIN MAKE A TICK
MARK ON BOTH THE MAP AND THE PAPER
6) CONTINUE IN THIS MANNER UNTIL YOUR MEASUREMENT IS COMPLETE, THEN USE THE GRAPHIC SCALE TO
DETERMINE THE GROUND DISTANCE.

ANGLE TO THE GIVEN AZIMUTH. IF IT MOVES TO THE RIGHT, YOU SUBTRACT THE AMOUNT OF THE G-M ANGLE FROM
THE GIVEN AZIMUTH.

THE COVER SIDE OF THE COMPASS POINTING TOWARD THE TOP OF THE MAP.
2) THIS WILL PLACE THE BLACK INDEX LINE ON THE DIAL OF THE COMPASS PARALLEL TO GRID NORTH.
3) BECAUSE THE NEEDLE ON THE COMPASS POINTS TO MAGNETIC NORTH, WE HAVE A DECLINATION DIAGRAM ON THE
FACE OF THE COMPASS FORMED BY THE INDEX LINE AND THE COMPASS NORTH.
