Technology has advanced over the past decade, providing law enforcement officials with new ways of gathering criminal evidence. However, these tools have raised some constitutional questions. An individual from Oregon with the initials DLK was involved in a case which had people wondering if agents violated his fourth amendment rights. Federal agents suspected that DLK was growing marijuana inside of his home, which drove agents to scan his house using a thermal scanner which showed heat just like the kind that is generated by using special lights in growing marijuana. A judge then issued agents a search warrant to check the home where they found 100 marijuana plants.
The Drug Enforcement Administration investigates criminals and drug gangs who distribute paraphilia in the United States (Sacco, 2014). They also work with other agencies to help eradicate the plants in order to reduce the manufacturing of the drugs. The DEA has eleven different programs. These programs
Marijuana Decriminalization: The Dual Purpose of Marijuana There is more than one purpose for marijuana in this world. If the criminal justice system took the time to explore the endless possibilities that marijuana provides then there would be a positive change made within society. When hearing about marijuana or weed one may instantly think of someone smoking out of a bong with a tie-dye shirt on listening to reggae music or one may picture a drug dealer who happens to be African American dealing drugs out of an abandoned apartment. The negative connotations that marijuana has allowed stereotypes like these to not only paint a negative image in the minds of Americans, but it also defines marijuana in a way that is more damaging to its reputation.
Cape May County has a serious problem with heroin. Different law enforcement strategies and educational programs can help stop this problem. Heroin is an opioid drug that is synthesized from morphine, which is a naturally occurring substance extracted from the seed pod of the Asian opium poppy plant. Heroin usually appears as a white or brown powder or as a black sticky matter known as “black tar heroin”. Heroin can be smoked, inhaled or injected, all deliver the drug extremely rapidly.
9. Using case example 18B, why are many of the found items testing negative for Methamphetamine? It may be because they are still in fresh vegetative condition. 10.

I believe that high school athletes should be drug tested. Drug testing high school athletes has become a popular in school districts and is being considered in many more high schools. I think that random drug testing policies will minimize the use of drugs and alcohol, at least among most of the high school 's athletes. All athletes should be required to take a drug test. Performance enhancing drugs are restricted for athletes to use.
A recent development notes that black tar heroin is being sold on the street in a similar way to crack cocaine. Dealers are packaging their product in baggies or balloons and assigning them brand names such as “Mud” or “Ace of
King says that police brutality occurs when the level of force being used does not match to the threat that is being posed. The case of Eric Garner is a perfect example where Garner was a suspect to selling Loosies (loose cigarettes) outside a store and was then put in a chokehold while being surrounded by multiple officers. Garner died from a situation that could have been handled differently. Police officers should be given better training on when they must utilize the use of force. The most important solution King states in his report is the use of body cameras.
Firstly, “Gateway theory” has been verified by several researchers. Maldonado- Molina (2010, p.913) supported that there were clear order which particular drug is tried prior to the other drugs and generally hard stage drugs is more than those who tried previous lower stage or soft drugs before. The author (Maldonado-Molina, 2010, p. 913) concluded that both alcohol and cigarettes initiate marijuana as a gateway drugs and even between legal substances has got gateway factors which alcohol function as a gateway substance for cigarette. Especially, there was approximately 85 times higher risks of illicit substance misuse for the adolescent marijuana users compared to non-marihuana users which the U.S.A study found (Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse 1994, cited in Morral, McCaffrey and Paddock, 2002, P. 1494). In addition, there was also study in New Zealand argued that frequent marijuana users in adolescent had 140 times higher risk to develop to hard stage of drugs use compared to non- marijuana users.
The main reason why I chose to include this as a piece of evidence, was to show that there are steps in the system that are flawed. As the title of the article suggested, $2 roadside drug tests are performed on suspected drugs found inside the car. Many of these tests produce false positives, and yet prosecutors across the country still continue to use them. The kits cost around $2 each, and have changed little since 1973. The story also provided an example of a women name Amy Albritton that was a victim of this drug test, as an officer claimed that he had seen a crumb of crack-cocaine.
