Illegal and unregulated marijuanna posing far more dangers to people than if marijuana was regulated by the government. To speed up production and increase revenue, Mexican cartels have been known for spraying numerous pesticides onto their cannabis plants. These toxic chemicals than linger on the leaves and end up being inhaled by thousandths of American consumers.
Drugs and athletes Famous athletes do drugs make them feel and do better on the field or on the court. Many of athletes began using steroids in the late twentieth century. Many athletes have been banned from playing the sport that they love. Most of the major sports have made rules for using or having possession with drugs. Athletes want to make themselves better, but don’t actually want to work to gain muscle mass the right way, so this is why they take steroids.
Drug addiction discriminates against no one. Drug addiction is often close to home. “Even people with no baseline genetic risk can become addicts if their environment is stressful.” Drug addiction is a complex problem that is often misunderstood and difficult to address due to the high illicit drug use. According to the 2012 Lancet Series on addiction it “estimates 200 million people world wide use illicit drugs each year.” With so many individuals using drugs, I believe drug addicts should not be sent to prison for punishment but instead a hospital to receive extensive treatment for their disorder. When individuals are sent to prison proper treatment can’t be obtained; drug abuse goes beyond physical and needs to be handled with proper treatment in a hospital.
He may consider that he is unable to deal with reality unless he can use the drug. But mescaline so strongly alters a person’s perceptions and ways of thinking that this person is not likely to be able to perform on a job or interact effectively with people who are sober. Some people need a helping hand to get their lives back on sober footings. This kind of help is available every day at Narconon drug recovery centers. It doesn’t matter what drug is being abused, the path back to sobriety can be walked at a Narconon rehab facility.
Those in charge of the Chief's care are unaware of these facts. No attempt has been made on their part to link events in his early life with the symptoms he is now experiencing. They cannot see past the text book presentation of schizophrenia. Kesey is telling us that mental illness is not strictly an illness at all. It is simply a form of individual expression that makes the majority of society feel uncomfortable.
Latessa explains how we shouldn't treat offenders for thing that do not link to them. Don’t treat someone who is a heavy drug user with a treatment built for people with anger issues. When the correctional system places these low risk offenders in programs meant for high risk offenders, it reduces the chances of it being effective because it doesn’t apply to that particular offender hence the “one size fits all” idea, it’s very ineffective. Latessa also spoke on many other reasons that causes recidivism treatment
There is no practical connection between the falsely accused person and sexual offense cases. On the other hand, victims have experienced traumatic incidents and some of them remain unwell even after several years (the Guardian, 2013). Deep-rooted myths perpetuate stigma linked to victims, while the public fear sex offenders as well as offenders in other criminal cases. In this situation, the law should protect victims and encourage them to report to the police, and should not create any additional barriers to doing so. Meanwhile, it is essential for the government to carry out a great deal of constant publicity to alleviate or even remove bias against victims through the platform of media.
Chemical Castration Mr. Roberts Uriah Rhodes Comp ll Prairie View A&M University Chemical Castration Outline I. Chemical castration has become an overwhelming debate on whether sex offenders should have this option as a punishment or treatment which also gives the sex offender the ability to be released from prison. II. While there are many pros to chemical castration, the side effects outnumber the real issue. Chemical castration goes against a person’s human rights, it also is an option the government hands out so that the offender can avoid jail, yet they are still suffering due to their health’s side effects.
Also there has been no medical use accepted by the FDA. And even though some physicians recommend its use, they could still be arrested and prosecuted for “aiding and abetting” (Hoffman & Weber, 2010) against the federal law. But for those states that have legalized it, patients could qualify, with or without a card, and be able to use marijuana for certain medical conditions. Many physicians do not know what stance to take on this issue because even if it is legal within the state, they do not want to risk getting their license taken away
Welfare includes programs such as unemployment, social security, health care, and more. Welfare was not created for a permanent solution to families in need of financial help. Welfare was created to help needy families get back on their feet though hard times. One main reason for mandatory drug testing is that taxpayers believe recipients should be drug tested to receive their money if they get drug tested to get a job. Drug testing could save money by removing drug users from receiving unnecessary financial help.
The heroin epidemic in the United States, and specifically York County was caused a multitude of reasons, such as the fact that heroin is cheaper than prescription drugs and most people who try heroin aren’t aware of the risks. Heroin is often used by people who first used prescription drugs. People will become addicted to painkillers because there isn’t much of a stigma. After all, they’re legal. Little to the users know that some of the prescription drugs they’re using are strong enough to treat a cancer
I appreciate how the CDC displays the information in a daunting manner. Reading about meth, through the CDC made me more afraid of meth than the NIDA did. The NIDA also contains a note section that contains other information and studies that are very helpful in bringing the reality of meth use to the reader. The CDC does not directly have a website platform for meth as does NIDA. It is disappointing that the CDC, a leader in health information, for the US, does not have a page informing the population of the effects of methamphetamines.
Crime was perceived to have increased due to politicians and the federal government preying on society’s fear of crime to further their political campaigns and agendas. Once our nation believed poverty, drugs, or race were the driving factors of crime countless policies were brought about to imprison anyone who seemingly threatened America’s future. These policies were not informed by any research and many have been evaluated and deemed ineffective. But society wants quick fixes to crime issues and incapacitation has been our quick fix. Despite research determining that mandatory minimums, capital punishment,
Thulia thinks Trump won 't do much about the problem. I think that doctors should give patients more information when prescribing opioids to patients. Many people that just had a painful surgery take opioids to stop their pain and then shortly get addicted after from taking the pills, I believe people would not get as tempted, and feel like it is ok to take opioids, if they knew they were highly addictive. Allen, a recovering addict, had to research her symptom to find out why she was having this temptation to take these pain killing pills when she was not even in pain. Allen’s doctor never told her about the danger of these “painkillers” but once Allen found out, she was concerned about herself, and knew she was addicted and in
The truth in that statement cannot be stressed enough. Medications need to be monitored and used correctly to ensure the health of the individual. If a person is on the verge of depression because of their anxiety, their best hope is a prescription drug. If the drug is abused the outcome would be what they originally had felt, most common depression. Suicidal thoughts would begin to take place, all because the medication had not been effective as the user didn’t affectively take the drug as ordered.
