Drug testing could save money by removing drug users from receiving unnecessary financial help. The underlining pro of mandatory drug testing is it will potentially terminate the families who abuse the system. Drug testing could influence the lower class to stay off drugs.
Education about overdose or providing referrals to medical and social services such as health screenings are offered. Also, incorporating harm reduction strategies into public health interventions for people who inject drugs may be helpful in resolving other health care (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2016). One argument against Needle Exchange programs is that by providing needles and syringes to addicts, the government is essentially condoning illicit and immoral behavior (“Debate: Needle exchanges”). Drug users are continuously given free access of clean utensil to shoot up. Instead of providing them access, the government should focus on punishing drug users, discourage drug-use, and provide more treatment for quitting
However, there are many that argue that the decriminalization of possession of drugs would redirect focus of the law enforcement system of any country to put more effort into arresting dealers and big time criminals, instead of arresting minor criminals for mere possession, and thus be more effective. It also has more focus on the drug user instead of drug lords which is a more humane approach as compared to the others. Decriminalisation then includes diversion programmes instead of incarceration. Decriminalisation also removes the stigma attached to a criminal conviction for the use of
There are two main treatments behavioral treatment and medications. Behavioral treatment helps addicts change unhealthy ways of thinking, counseling and sometimes psychotherapy. Medication treatment might sound wrong, why give them other prescribed drugs?. The addict suffers withdrawals symptoms and to help them stop using opioids, we supply them with other none dangerous drugs which close to the same effect. Treatment is possible, we just gotta reduce the epidemic among our young
Malloy in 1982, suggested that a salary increment for the police officers would encourage them to stop taking bribes, also suggested that unenforceable laws to be eliminated, this would help the police officers not to feel too much pressure in enforcing them. Police officers should take integrity rests from time to time; this would test if the officer will make honest choices when faced by a situation. This tests would lead to opening of investigations and uprooting corrupt and dishonest officers. Internal affairs model- this would help reduce corruption by investigating the officers from the department and resolve it internally from the
A recent research showed that to motivate clients to change, the scare tactics are most likely to produce the intended change in behavior ( Goodman 2009), threatening the client would only lead to counter effective and confront the client to be defensive. The rehabilitation center is trying to set a goal by attempts to make the drug abusers not taking drugs anymore and move back drugs abusers to society normally. Every drug abusers would treat as only deviant behavior, once they do not take drugs anymore, they could become the same as everyone. Advantages of treatment and rehabilitation programmes It is obvious that the rehabilitation programmes have various advantages which are stay away from drugs, strengthen the confidence of drug abusers and have high elasticity of the programmes. Stay away from
If we need to use drugs that are prescribed by the doctor, we should use them, how they are supposed to be used. Don’t be a zero, be a DARE hero to me means that we need to do something about people taking drugs and be a number instead of people being a zero and not doing anything. Marijuana, meth, heroin, and inhalants can all cause death or medical issues. We learned in the role-playing that our friends can make us do things we don’t want to do. That is called personal or peer pressure.
Regulating the amount of guns in the hands of American citizens, more guns preventing crime and the interpretation of the Second Amendment are all crucial topics in debating gun control. With less guns ownership, there would be a severe drop in homicides and other gun related deaths. Additionally, some contend more guns would associate with a lower crime rate. This is due to bystanders stepping in and stopping any potential crime or crime in progress. Lastly, the true meaning of the Second Amendment very controversial.
Those examples can be fixed with time, what can not be fixed with time is people 's emotional state and the reputation our country has built for themselves. If hate speech is banned from the U.S constitution people over time will adjust and it will allow for others affected to finally breath, live a normal life, and no longer be pressured by community members hateful remarks. Hate speech should no longer be protected by the U.S constitution because hate speech in itself promotes hateful actions and expressions, the negative effects hate speech has on people is widespread and laws around the world have proven effective to limit internet-based hate speech. The banning of hate speech is extremely important for the future of our country and the people living long after this current generation passes. The more people promote hate speech the further our country gets from being a peaceful, and loveable place to live and grow up.
I believe their laws are a little extreme, but good for their situation. I also believe that gun laws could probably be enforced better instead of making new laws to protect us that don’t work. If bad people can still get illegal drugs, they will be able to get illegal guns too. That would mean the law abiding citizen wouldn’t have a good way of protecting
If everyone was aware of the consequences, the epidemic wouldn’t be nearly as bad. Heroin is a problem that won’t go away anytime soon, but if we work, we can try to eliminate it from our community. We must try to inform everyone of the dangers of heroin so they know to avoid them. We also need to work on keeping prescription drugs in a safe place, and if they aren’t being used, we need to dispose of them as soon as possible at our local police station. To conclude, the heroin epidemic is caused by the lack of information on heroin and the price of heroin compared to prescription
I think that carrying a concealed weapon could increase the feeling of safety, but if we don 't take the correct actions to insure that the person is mentally stable, then it will not actually increase the overall safety of America. If you think that more guns will increase safety, then we will be making it easier for terrorists organizations to get ahold guns in the U.S, or we will be making it easier for mentally unstable people to get ahold of weapons. That would be a recipe for disaster. If we allow people to only carry a concealed weapon and make them go through a weapons training program, a physiological evaluation, and have a caliber cap, then we might just be heading to a brighter future. There will always be violence in the
Significant declines include sharp drops from previous years in daily alcohol use by 10th and 12th graders (0.9 percent and 2.2 percent, respectively, in 2013). In 2013, 22.1 percent of high school seniors reported binge drinking (defined as 5 or more drinks in a row in the past 2 weeks)—a drop of almost one-third since the late
Although lowering the legal drinking age might give teenagers a chance at enjoying alcoholic beverages, the consequences are not worth the temporary pleasure. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are short and long term costs of choosing to drink alcohol. The short term risks include: careless injuries, violence, unprotected sexual behavior, and alcohol poisoning. The long term risks include: heart and liver disease, cancer in multiple parts of the body, memory loss, depression or anxiety, and alcohol dependence (www.cdc.gov). Raising the legal drinking age will provide safer roads and less damage to the consumers and their fellow peers.
Rather than “taking the profit out of the drug business”, Bennett’ alternative is to make the usage of drugs a less appealing option. The outcome of attempting this would make it even simpler to gain a profit in the drug industry. In the author’s opinion, if the process to acquire drugs becomes simpler, then the number of individuals
