Consumers are demanding businesses be more socially and environmentally concerned and because they are using their disposable income they have power over what they prefer to spend their money on (Paiz, et al., 2011). These consumer pressures have made Chipotle follow these socially environmental practices and only purchase ingredients from specific suppliers.

More positive results can aspire from its legalization and restricting it raises many challenges. From a business standpoint, it is not cost effective to keep it illegal and legalizing marijuana can bring revenue for the government. The amount of money the U.S. spends on criminalizing marijuana users can be used to target the real criminals. Marijuana is not like the other drugs and its use for recreational purposes should be allowed.

Non-profits should do in-depth research, such as reading news articles and viewing advertisements, of the for-profits that want to sponsor them by checking their mission statements, business practices, and their overall public image. Phoenix University is not an inherently bad corporate citizen, but it would be a stretch to consider them the model corporate citizen. The main issue is the lack of social responsibility in their targeting of a specific demographic using the sponsorship like an advertisement for a service that many low-income families will not be able to afford (Patterson & Wilkins, 2014, p. 59).

In Not going to Starbucks: Boycotts and the out-scouring of politics in the branded world, Bryant Simon highlights consumers protesting Starbucks because of their use of genetically modified milk and lack of free trade coffee (159).

Thus the greater expense of natural foods. To regular consumers, this may seem as added precautions to make sure the food is natural; however, by reading these guidelines, it is obvious that Codex is trying to trivialize organic standards so the organization can extract profits instead of protecting the health of consumers. There are some who believe that Codex regulations are justified because they really are trying to protect consumer health by thoroughly checking to make sure the food is organic. Yet there are still others who think that Codex is merely part of a larger issue, and that it’s really the multinational corporations like Big Pharma that are taking over the food industry.

Also water companies who have water rights would also oppose my plan. Corporations would have restrictions on their water rights which would make their sales on water drop because they are not producing and selling as much water as they used to. Corporations solution would be a major failure for everyone else because their solution only benefits their corporation because it gives more rights of the water to the corporations.
