The initial impact from socioeconomic status begins through the influence of an individual’s community and resources provided to nourish the well-being of the person. However, when a strong community or welfare is absent, the prosperity of the individual often declines. In the Journal of Economic Issues, Theodore Chiricos notes “...that poor individuals from juveniles to adults are more likely to be arrested and charged than middle and upper-income individuals (41-52)” (Chiricos 519). Communities with little access to substantial resources for intolerance against neglect of the law encourages disobedience to authority.

In 2010, the US Congress passed the Fair Sentencing Act (FSA) which reduced the sentencing difference between offenses for crack and powder cocaine. Many people in law enforcement believed that there is more violence associated with a crack cocaine crime, rather than a powder cocaine offense.

The Roaring Twenties was a time of glitz and glamour, but those were really just embellishments of what was actually a dark, twisted time in our nations history. The production of alcohol was illegal as of January 16, 1919. Although this was seen as the next step towards a more cultured and moral society, it actually did the exact opposite. Corruption and crime arose. Although it is true that substances such as alcohol can be abused, the prohibition of alcohol prevented the advancement of our society due to the corruption in public officials, negative effects on the economy, and increased crime rates.
Asset forfeiture can be used to fund government programs which can be a great benefit to the public and is considered necessary to thwart criminal activity. Financial incentives for asset forfeiture are the government’s way of motiving law enforcements to actively fight for anti-drug policies. There are still inherent flaws that need to be addressed with asset forfeiture laws. Innocent property owners have little protection from forfeiture. A study about plaintiffs of forfeiture cases show “the finding that most appeals are lost was not surprising as previous research examining litigation challenging police actions has found that plaintiffs have a difficult time winning” (Gabbidon 59) There are also no proper restrictions for law enforcements abusing civil forfeiture.
While there were benifits of prohibition such as the instant decrease in crime and that workers didn 't miss as many days due to being drunk, the negatives were also huge. The crime before wasn 't as bad as during prohibtion, because of the restriction of alcohol new types of crime were created, such as bootlegging. The reasons for the start of prohibition were somewhat justified, alcohol has a direct parallel to crime and its proven that drunk individuals are more prone to crime. Also the health effects of alcohol are quite detrimental they can make a person 's quite shoddy with excessive consumption. During those times temprence wasn 't a commonly practiced ideal so alcohol addictions were more common, it would only make sense that people would begin to see the parallels between alcohol and many of the negative things that plague society.
