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.
Physician assisted suicide, although legal in some states, should remain illegal because it goes against religious and moral beliefs. “In physician assisted suicide, the physician provides the necessary means or information and the patient performs the act” (Endlink). Supporters of assisted-suicide laws believe that mentally competent people who are in misery and have no chance of long-term survival, should have the right to die if and when they choose. I agree that people should have the right to refuse life-saving treatments, written in the patient bill of rights. But they should not have the freedom to choose to end their own lives with the help of a physician.
Which summarises that the use of drugs cannot be prevented but yet, death and misuse can be controlled. Fulton Gillespie shows in his writing that criminalisation will not help drug addicts but legalising drugs will. It can be seen in this example, “I am convinced that he would still be alive today if all the drugs had been legalised and controlled, because he would have no need to steal and would not have been in prison, the heroin would have been controlled and thus not toxic”. The same applies to Rupert Turner as he discusses to support and not punish those in need of help. This can is clear when Rupert states, “We pour millions into fighting the drug war, a war that cannot be won.
As a result of my study on gangs, I have discovered that the reasons people join gangs are because they have an addiction to drugs, have uncontrollable emotions, face experiences with failure and have unhealthy relationships. I agree with these causes of why people join gangs and also believe those causes can be prevented. By making good decisions, I believe people would not join a gang. Other people might say that becoming involved with gangs cannot be controlled due to family and ethnic cultures endorsing it, but this is unreasonable because of all the preventions to the causes. The addiction to drugs is a cause of joining gangs, because once a person gets hooked they will take any necessary means to receive these drugs.
The problem with banning guns is that we should protect ourselves if the need arises. Guns go a long way in terms of protection so banning them completely isn’t going to fix the problem completely. On the other hand, if we don 't do anything about the loose restrictions on purchasing and operating
Your child can be a role model to younger children by staying drug free and setting good examples. Isn't that what all parents want? I sure would! Drugs are very unhealthy and can cause death if intervention or prevention is not put into effect. Why would any parent not support preventing their child from harming their body if given the option to?
It is believed that an individual’s medical choices should not be governed. This is also a valid point. However, the decision to not vaccinate ones child not only affects the child’s health but the health of others. This point alone validates why it necessary to mandate vaccinations for all
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
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
Testing could also keep users from disclosing information that would take them out of the system. Because the main basis for drug testing is suspicion, lawmakers are not able to have mandatory drug testing passed. Drug testing is also not passed because individuals are protected by the Fourth
For the most part, individuals with a severe mental illness are not violent and thus, placing gun restraints on everyone with a severe mental illness would not target the correct subgroup that would most likely conduct violence (McGinty et al., 2013). Another concern about banning weapons from people with severe mental illness is that the policies cause the population to develop harmful ideas about individuals with severe mental illness (McGinty et al., 2013. Consequently, people with severe mental illness do not go into treatment (McGinty et al., 2013). Misconceptions about severe mental illness are not the only contributors to stigma; labels can also have a large effect on how the general population feels about those with severe mental
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
There was a clear generation gap that lead to the misunderstanding and division between the older generations and the younger ones. The older generations wanted to know why these youths wanted to take LSD, venture out, try new things, and change the culture and society that they were or are growing up in. They also focused on the negative aspects on it, but could not help because that was all that was presented in the media, all the negative aspects of LSD and minimization of the benefits of it. Youths of LSD counterculture took their criticism and disapproval and turned it into a positive experience. Ignoring the backlash, they continued to voice their opinion and use LSD to enhance new ways of expressing themselves and their spirituality.
Drug testing is very effective many studies in the past has shown that students reported using drugs had use it less and less, and they also found out that students who did use drugs for sports have a good accurate chance they will use it in their future lives in a sport career. Now some may argue that is not necessary for students to have a drug test just for joining a club, I understand the disbelief in parents when they see this but drug testing is for making sure no students are taking drugs. The test is also for helping out kids who secretly had drug abuse problem and so the policy just wants to help every students that is possibly in danger of drug
