“Over 190,000 underage people visited emergency rooms for alcohol related injuries in 2008” (“Underage Drinking” 2). This problem can be fixed, however. If the law was changed to 18 and restaurants and bars accepted this age group where mature and responsible drinking is expected, the amount of unsafe drinking activity would decrease. This would also diminish the thrill of breaking the law to get drunk. Normalizing alcohol consumption as something done responsible would make drinking alcohol less of a thrill for young adults entering college and workforce settings.
Another way to reduce drug abuse is by creating syringe exchange policies where users can take their dirty syringes and get clean ones in return. This not only decreases the disease transmission ("HIV/AIDS", 2018), it also lowers the stigma around drug use and provides a safe space where they feel welcome (Meyerson, 2017). Some may say that both of these interventions would just make drugs more accessible, therefore more predominant. However, research has shown that reducing stigma actually decreases the number of drug related incarcerations and overdoses (Villa). If we were to increase support around these individuals instead of passing judgement, we would see a significant difference in our
Another positive effect of daylight saving time relates to crime reduction, which is significantly reduced by having the extra daylight hours. Source C states, “people generally feel safer in the daylight, and many types of crime are believed to be influenced by lighting conditions. For example, more light in the evening decreases the opportunity for street crime against people returning home from work.” This benefit alone should provide enough evidence to ensure the continued practice of daylight saving
It shows that drug use has 2 sides, which is used for good things such as medicine and bad things such as opium. However, there is a lot of drug abuse these days. National Institute on Drug Abuse (2015) indicated that in 2013, an estimated 24.6 million Americans aged 12 or older which is 9,4 percent of the population had used an illicit drug in the past month. This paper will talk about the reason why drugs should not be legalized such as increasing drug demand, lead to more addiction for the addicts, and harmful both for user and society. First of all, legalization of drugs would increase drug demand.
In addition, recent studies have shown that human drivers are more likely to be involved in an accident in comparison to driverless cars. Cars of Tomorrow-Still Not Flying states; “Google has had a fleet of driverless cars since 2009, and they’ve driven over a half a million miles without a crash. Human drivers get in an accident about every half a million miles on average in the United States, so either the Google cars are due, or they’re going to out-drive humans yet again.” This explains that in recent humans are more accident prone and get into accidents more frequently. Not to mention the fact that amongst humans driverless cars could ultimately end up saving lives. Fischer who was interviewed at the New York International Auto Show tells CNN Money Watch, that by looking towards new crash mitigation technology it will worn the driver if an accident is about to occur.
The Tropical Inspirational Drink was made for the sole purpose to make college students innovative when making a paper. It is a lot like an energy drink, but not as harmful, although it does have side effects. The side effects mostly happens if the person drinks more than the recommended doses. He or she may experience heart or kidney complications, or both.While some people will not like it, Eureka! The Tropical Inspirational Drink has been proven to be less harmful than an energy drink and it is completely natural.
I know when the holidays or big events come to the city the police try to increase the patrolling to keep drunk drivers off the street. There are too many people out there drinking and driving for the police to catch them all. . Maybe if they drive with more caution, they have less chances of being stopped by the police. I do know that having a DWI on your license can cause you to pay a lot of big fines and also
Another solution is using plastic ike substances htat are actually biodegradable. For example, a substance called liquid wood, which acts exactly like plastic, however, is good for the planet, and will not hurt the ocean or us. As you might think, these solutions will inevatiably raise food prices, since glass is more expensive, or if we resort to the biodegradable substances, they are new sciences, meaning that they will also cost more, however, wouldn’t you rather pay more for a solution to a problem that is largely afecting you, then do nothing about
However, doing this will not stop felons from procuring and committing gun-related crimes. For example, take a look at the United Kingdom. Once they banned guns, there was a large spike in murders, reaching as high as 1.97 homicides per 100,000 people. The murder rate then began to decline around 2003-2004 as a result of increased police force, but has only reached a number below the pre-ban’s 1.3 homicides per 100,000 people 1 time. This shows that while a ban may limit gun violence, perpetrators will find other ways to commit crimes, such as bombings and driving vehicles through crowds.
As the time limit to consume alcohol at public places are reduced, less crimes are likely to be committed under the influence of alcohol. So, this can ensure safety of citizens. So, in spite of the intervention into drinking, it can be considered as desirable due to its beneficial
According to Should School Start Later?” the author states, “Studies show that well rested teens get higher grades, have higher test scores and miss fewer days of school. They also have a lower risk of car accidents.” Imagine a sleep deprived student, driving to school, but then he rams into other cars in the parking lot. There is fire, smoke, and sirens sounding everywhere. Many people every year are killed in these brutal accidents. Sleep is just one of the many factors that can affect safety on the road.
When they are molded, it will generally be easy to fit into the mouth and work for people that need to have the straw set in a specific position. Without this, people may have trouble in using the straw because they would be straight up and down straws. Resistance to staining is something else people are going to enjoy with the stainless steel drinking straws. Generally, if people are using the plastic reusable straws in a cup, they will find it is not going to stain and this can make it easier for people to enjoy the straw and know that it is going to be looking great all the time. Without this, people may end up having a plastic straw that is going to look like the drink they have all the time.
It is possible that many opioid or other drug users could take advantage of the programs as way to get their high and stay alive at the same time. It is also not insured that users would want to go to these safe injection sites. As Dr. Brian Johnson states in his argument in the CQ Researcher, “The customers still are more likely to use the drug dealer’s bathroom than to delay gratification until they can bring the illicit opioids to the safe injection site” (Johnson). It is believed the addicts are likely not willing to hold off their high to ensure safety. On the contrary, it will be seemingly easier and cheaper for the addicted to get drugs from the clinics and once the word is out, it could bring in a multitude of people and, in turn, save their
Besides, it has not stopped teen drinking, and it probably never will. It has instead pushed underage binge drinking into private and less controlled environments, leading to more health and life-endangering behaviors by teens. If the legal drinking age was lowered, those teens would be able to drink in a more controlled and much more safe environment where they can be monitored and supervised. Then they will be less likely to harm themselves or others. The second argument that is used is that there are fewer drunk driving accidents in countries with lower drinking ages.
In some states people don’t even get their driver’s license until 16 years old or even 18 years old. Their experience behind the wheel is not very long. Adding alcohol into the equation could end up being very dangerous. According to Kypri, K., Davie, G., McElduff, P., Connor, J., and Langley, J., (2014) “four studies of the short-term effects of that law change on young people have been published in the scientific literature; they showed increases in emergency department admissions for intoxication, increases in disorder offenses and drunk driving, and higher traffic crash injury rates than would have been expected in the absence of the change (p. 1396). Those four studies took place in New Zealand right after they changed the drinking age from 20 to 18.
