Big Drug company Case Study-Sycamore Pharmaceuticals

Case Study: Sycamore Pharmaceuticals John Blake should cooperate with the FDA representative and reveal the true information. Blake should cooperate because first, it is against his ethical values to provide inaccurate information about the company’s drugs to the customers. Another reason why he should cooperate with the FDA agent is that this is a legal requirement. The law requires that employees may share confidential information about their employer if there is a legal justification for sharing such information (Cho & Song, 2015). According to Heumann, Friedes, Cassak, Wright, and Joshi (2013), whistleblowing often highlights the management’s ineffectiveness or failures. Blake would thus be exposing the CEO’s failures. Lastly, the CEO had made it clear that employees should delay providing damaging reports “as long as legally possible.” Under the current circumstances, it was not legally possible to hide the truth. John Blake should realize that there are both positive and negative consequences. If Blake fails to be honest with the FDA representative, the...

If you were in charge of the CIA during the Cold War period, what methods would you use to ensure domestic security Secretive Government Site The creation of secretive sites such as Area 51 during the 1950s was justified. The 1950s represents the period when the U.S. had just emerged from the Second World War (Holpuch, 2013). Further, this period saw the emergence of the Cold War.

However, it is worth noting that it was and is still difficult for the country to enforce this law and regulation irrespective of the passage of the companion legislation of the Volstead act. Research shows that prohibition in the country was a way designed to minimize if not taking out the drinking of intoxicating substances by eliminating the business that produced, distributed and sold alcoholic drinking  (Hall, 2010). The 18th amendment to the country’s...

Argumentative essay-Marijuana, the Deceptive Drug

In 2000, George Bierson’s "Marijuana, the Deceptive Drug", was published by the Massachusetts News. Bierson concludes that marijuana is harmful in many ways, including brain damage, damage to the reproductive system, and weakening of the immune system. He also attempts to convince the reader that marijuana is a "gateway drug" that leads the users to venture into much harder drugs. I believe that research to support anything can be found if one is looking hard enough, but that the fallacy of Bierson’s conclusion is due to his research seeking facts to support an already-assumed conclusion. Based on my research and my own personal experience, I have found that several of his points, when looked at logically, do not reach his conclusion. One of Bierson’s strongest supporting claims is of the physical harms of marijuana. He argues that Heath's tests of the monkey's brain seemed to show conclusive evidence of brain damage; however, he fails to mention that the tests were later discredited: the monkeys were given extremely high doses, doses exponentially higher than...
