If marijuana is legalized, and there are no more special treatments for marijuana overdose, then what will happen to those that are in need of a treatment? Is it ethical for the government to give up one’s well being just for the sake of money? There are many ways for a government to earn money other than legalizing marijuana. Legalizing marijuana is an unnecessary action. Keeping it illegal is the best thing to do for the world, for the country, and for
Prostitution has been an ongoing issue that is not going away anytime soon. How can we regulate and make sure those people are actually keeping up with those policies? If someone does not want to use contraceptives and is persistent on having sexual relations, how can we be sure rape doesn’t occur between the individuals? By keeping it illegal, we can regulate this part of American life, come up with more ways to stop it, and alleviate the prostitution
Government expenditures on futile supply reduction strategies and incarceration displace more cost-effective and evidence-based investments in demand and harm reduction. The international drug control system was founded with two core goals. First, it sought to reduce the negative health consequences generated by drugs. Second, it promised to guarantee access to essential medicines. Neither of these aims has been achieved.
Should Drugs be decriminalized? Illegal use and possession of drugs have been hotly debated lately. Some states have recently even decriminalized the consumption of some of the drugs termed as ‘recreational.’ Although the advocates of decriminalisation of drugs present it as a solution to damage caused by drug related incidents but the advantages of decriminalization have been questioned by the opponent camp. Opponents argue that harms cannot be effectively reduced by decriminalization, on the contrary, the harms linked with consumption of such substances will be increased. The arguments of the critics are more substantial and logical when compared with the advocates of decriminalization of drugs.
Some see the death penalty as the correct punishment for severe crimes such as dealing drugs or murder, but others believe that the death penalty would let these criminals off to easy as they wouldn't have to live the rest of their sentence, or even life, in prison. Listener relevance: this punishment is currently being considered in the united states, included in the White House Opioid Crisis Plan. One of the reasons people want to keep the death penalty is that it’s “the ultimate warning”. They believe that administering the death penalty on a criminal will deter others from committing the same crime because they will see what the consequence is. Another reason some believe the death penalty is the correct punishment for drug dealers is because the drugs they sold could have caused someones overdose and they should suffer the punishment for their
In my personal opinion, I believe that the decriminalization of drugs in Hong Kong would bring more benefits than disadvantages. Unlike Sweden, imposing harsher penalties has not proven to be successful in reducing drug abusers in Hong Kong and we need better solutions to tackle the problem. I believe that the Hong Kong government should decriminalize all drugs, by doing this they would effectively reduce the amount of people consuming drugs, thereby reducing the crime rates in Hong Kong. We have seen this solution working in Portugal with crime rates in Portugal falling significantly. Global
86). Ousley’s realization that his parent’s issues contributed to their lack of understanding to him is a comparable difference in his understanding of his parents when he was a teenager. It provides how even a juvenile who committed murder is able to mature and finding redemption by gain, thus proving that Jenkin’s belief in some teenage murders will never change. Even though teenage murder cannot go unpunished, it does not mean they should be sentenced to life in
One source (Cachanosky, 2014) mentioned above has counter-arguments and reasons why people still support the current conservative approach. However, there has yet to be a source found that promotes the current prohibition laws and policies that show what they do benefit society more than the current problems it causes. It's not that I'm suggesting the current model is working, but seeing opposing research helps with solidifying and strengthening my arguments and opinions while writing. Possibly the lack of research in favor of the war on drugs could suggest it truly is a
But the problems in these developing countries they cope with those problems with drugs and it 's really sad how people in this country don 't realize how addiction is other countries and what it does to people. There will never be time in this world where addiction will be completely gone. But there could be a time in this world where we can help these people with the addiction to save them from torture and hopefully save their
Prevention is known to be the surest way of maintaining a society free of drug abusers. Substance abuse is, therefore, preventable. Research has proven that running preventive programs in institutions such as schools, media coverage and societal levels can lead to reduced drug use levels ("Preventing Drug Abuse: The Best Strategy | National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)," n.d.) . Although cultural trends have affected the way drugs are utilized in the present day society advocating the wrong side effects of the drugs will lead to reduced cases of substance abuse. It is, therefore, necessary to ensure proper sensitization of the harmful effects of drugs is done to prevent and control the use and abuse of medications in our present day societies.
More gun control is not the answer! Carrying a concealed firearm reduces crime and there are plenty of studies to back this up. Moreover, acquiring a concealed carry permit may inform you about laws you may not have known about, and could make you more mindful in the future. Lastly, it is our constitutional right to bear arms and we should be able to exercise our rights without reconciling. There are many opposing views pertaining to this argument, but if everyone was just able to come to an agreement; the world would be a better place.
Even though gun laws prevent deaths, they infringe so many rights in the immutable Bill of Rights, which is one of the foundations of the great United States. Gun laws give too much power to the government and way less from the people, which will lead to government corruption. And, stated by ClearPictureOnline.com,”Guns don 't kill people, people do. We need to concentrate on the values and morals of our citizens and at the role the media plays in glorifying violence and the lack of respect for law.” (Shootout: Do We Need More Gun Control Regulations?) What people don 't understand is that they are taking away their own freedoms with Gun Control.
Before that time doctors generally considered opioids dangerous but in 1996 a company called purdue pharma released a new drug ,oxycontin. purdue spent hundreds of millions of dollars to convince doctors that oxycontin was safe and not addictive. there marketing strategy worked, their prescriptions for oxycontin skyrocketed but purdue 's claim that oxycontin was safe and not addictive just wasn 't true. as sales skyrocketed so did addiction, overdoses, and death.
But there is also the problem that if the NSA become completely transparent, the terrorist and other people the NSA is trying to catch, will have more knowledge as how to not get caught, which would just make the NSA ineffective. Basically the people have to decide whether they want a government that catches terrorists or one that always protects their freedoms. Most parts of the world would rather have a government that catches terrorists and keeps them safe, but unlike these countries, America (excuse my American exceptionalism) has an amendment for their constitution that bans unreasonable search and seizures. The NSA is in a difficult position because it must weigh how transparent they can be to appease the population with how much secrecy they need to function
While searching for an opinion based article and after reading several vague and unexciting hooks off every article’s introduction I found Don Winslow’s “America’s war on drugs is empowering Mexico’s drug cartels” a must read. With Winslow’s dispute toward America and its leaders, his opinion of how mediocre their effort is toward the war on drugs is spot on. Although not anti-government Winslow stresses how the government’s insufficient interest in thoroughly dealing with the ongoing war on drugs compared to other conflicts in the Western hemisphere is helping the cartel thrive. However, although considered a war by many, including myself, Winslow sees it more than just a war but an act of terrorism with money being the ultimate goal. Needless
