Under his administration that lasted from 2006 to 2012 its estimated by analyst that around 60.000 people had been killed, but it is estimated that around 120.000 people had been killed by the year of 2013 including 27.000 people missing and unofficial deaths. This is the outcome of Mexico’s intervenient in the drugs. All these deaths come from rebels, riots and wars on the streets and kidnapping, which is a big problem in Mexico. Mexico is rated as one of the highest rated kidnapping countries in the world. They are ranked 8 with over 70 abductions each month, this can also be looked on as a big reason of the high death numbers in
Great Again” vows. However, he is looking to use the traditional tactics of increasing the war on drugs through prohibition and control. The President also informed that he has instruction for the formation of a Task Force that will work to reduce the violent crimes.

Bolivia currently provides both and finds itself at the heart of a new criminal dynamic that threatens national and citizen security in this landlocked Andean nation.” ( McDermott, J.) These three sources , “ The International Drug War, Can Colombia Solve Its Drug Problem Through Peace? , and Bolivia: the New Hub for Drug Trafficking in South America,” all tie together in someway. All three sources give something about how other countries in the World are affected by drug trafficking. Source one states, “Drug production, trafficking and consumption affects every country in the world.” (Policy , D) Source two states, “ “In 1971, President Nixon announced the U.S. “war on drugs,” which every President since has carried forward as a battle standard.
This paper argues that the “War on Drugs” and the current enforcement and punishment approach is not working. The results of our policies are the mass incarceration of individuals, especially blacks and Latinos. Drug experts and historians identified two main eras of the war on drugs, the 1970s’ and 1980’s, two main turning points of U.S. policy in combating drugs. The first major shift in drug policy was started by the Nixon Administration. Nixon was sworn in as the 37th President of the United States on 20 January 1969 and by July of 1969 his administration submits legislation for a comprehensive reform of federal drug enforcement laws.
Colombia has not been the world’s cocaine leader only due to reasons regarding the instability of the country or its geographical location, but especially due to to this paramilitary organization. The political instability is present in most of the Latin American countries, but if the drugs industry has been developing especially in Colombia is because of the strategy implemented by the FARC. Many times the Colombian government tried to dismantle this organization through policies or plans in common with other countries too such as the United States but, due to the exponential growth of the FARC and the profits gained during the last fifty years, it seems impossible to dismantle it.
President Jackson’s decision to create a new compromised tariff was beneficial to not only South Carolina, but the whole country because they could focus on more important issues, like slavery. President Lincoln’s decision to institute a draft so that he could get more power on the side of the Union, as well as the Emancipation Proclamation, which ensured that other nations like Britain and France didn’t help on the Confederate side to win the Civil War. These issues still stick with us today, for example the idea of states ’ rights, which applied to the Nullification Crisis when South Carolina nullified the tariffs, can still be found in controversial decisions about different drugs, as well as firearms. Racism and discrimination still occasionally happen to African-Americans, which carries along the idea of how the United States has always had conflicting views about slavery and African-American rights. Presidents of the United States of America will continue to make decisions to ease the tensions in the country on controversial issues, and previous decisions will come up again, like history always
“MARIJUANA IS THE MOST VIOLENT-CAUSING DRUG IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES.” Marijuana is a product of the hemp plant, which appears as a green, brown, or gray mixture of dried, shredded leaves, stems, seeds, and flowers. Marijuana called by several street names such as pot, herb, weed, grass, boom, Mary Jane, gangster, chronic, among others by different people. Marijuana is the third most popular recreational drug in America being behind alcohol and tobacco, and has been used by nearly 100 million Americans. According to government surveys, some 25 million Americans have smoked marijuana in the past year, and more than 14 million do so regularly despite harsh laws against its use (Anthony 2002).
The percentage of less than 18s who have used cannabis at least once has increased from 21 percent in 1994 to 33 percent in 2010. However, after a peak of 42.7 percent in 2004 cannabis use has been falling every year since. Drug consumption is not a crime in Spain. After the devastation caused by heroin use and HIV during the 1980s, Spanish authorities decided to focus on “curing” drug addicts – considered sick people – while punishing drug traffickers.
“ We have not yet won the battle against drug trafficking.” The global drug trade propagated an estimated US$321.6 billion in 2003. As the world GDP was US$36 trillion in the same year, the illegimate drug trade can be estimated as nearly 1% of the entire global trade. Consumption of illegal drugs is prevalent globaly.
As Levitt (2004) stated “those over the age of 65 experience victimization rates for serious violent crime that are less than one-tenth of those of teenagers” (p. 171) and since the young population got older, the crime followed in trend. Disagreements One of Levitt’s main four causes of the 1990s crime was the legalization of abortion in the 1970s. Levitt argued that unwanted children were at higher risk for crime and the legalization of abortion reduced the number of unwanted children. His hypothesis was brought about because “the five states that allowed abortion in 1970… experienced declines in crime rates earlier than the rest of the country”
Fresno County is located in the central regions of California (CA). Current estimates put the population at around 965,000 which represents a huge 20% increase over the last 14 years. Most of the population growth came from the Hispanic and Asian communities, which now represent over 33% of the total population. Given the County 's proximity to both Sacramento and Los Angeles, they too suffer from a large number of crimes and death related to drug abuse and addiction. Startling Statistical Information About Drug Abuse in Fresno County, California While Trust for America 's Health reported the state of California has the 15th lowest fatality rate (10.6 out of every 100,000 people) from drug overdose, the number is quite misleading considering the vast population of the state.

According to John R. Lott Jr., PhD. “When states passed concealed carry laws during the 19 years we studied (from 1977 to 1995) the number of multiple- victim public shootings declined by 84%. Deaths from these shootings plummeted on average by 90% and injuries by 82%. In fact FBI crime data by economist and political commentator John R. Lott Jr, calculated that 1,570 murders, 4,177 rapes, 60,000 aggravated assaults, and 12,000 robberies could have been prevented between 1977 and 1992 if concealed carry could have been legal in every US state during that time period,”(ProCon.org). This proves that, by passing concealed carry laws, the percentage of crime has decreased ,and states have become safer due to restrictions but still allowing people to protect
These policies are a huge part of what American and it 's government is today. Without some of these policies we could be in the equal amount of danger we were 14 years ago with 9-11. These polices are part of how life is now. They make our country a safer
