The country of Opium isn 't controlled by El Patron anymore, and El Patron was controlling eejits to make a profit. These eejits were being exposed to harmful chemicals, weren 't given enough to eat and drink, and had their most basic right, free will taken away from them (p. 81). With the control in Matt’s hands, he can stop this mistreatment of these poor people, and find away to reverse the eejit surgery. Since the power is now in Matt’s hands, it is safer because he promised Maria’s mother and ultimately Maria, that he won 't abuse it and he loves Maria so. As a result of having no eejits, a cheap work source has disappeared, which will bring down other drug lords and distribute the wealth more evenly, which will affect the common citizens of Opium rightly.
In America, the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution says that the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be broken. This poses a problem for the American democratic government as well because banning guns would conflict with the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution. This another a clear example of how flawed their ideology is and America should instead concentrate on the bigger picture of terrorism and restricting access to
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.
Criminals will break the law and if they refuse to turn in their firearms they can just as easily sell illegal drugs, and make money to buy firearms illegally through black markets. Why refuse the people 's ability to defend themselves? Banning firearms will worsen gun violence. People generally have little understanding of firearms other than point and shoot. The idea of a gang like MS-13 handing over their guns because the law wants them to is obscene ( Geer 3 ).
In recent times, the media has blamed most mass shootings on the fact that the shooter may have a mental illness, almost in a way as to take the direct blame off of them. This is seen almost like an excuse to someone who is planning a mass shooting because they know that they will be seen with sympathy in the eyes of the media. Most people with mental illnesses are no more dangerous than someone without one and the media’s promotion of mental illness is only making it harder for the true mentally ill to live independent lives. The Obama administration made it a point to have mental health covered by Medicaid so that there will be no excuse as to why someone would not be able to get treatment for their illness. Therefore the media should not use mental illness as a way to explain why a horrible act has occurred and instead place full, unfiltered blame onto the shooter for the acts committed.
Furthermore, the US has an estimated 283 million guns in civilian hands even though researchers claim that America’s high level of gun ownership are a major reason the US is getting extremely worse in terms of gun violence than other developed nations. It is the extremely tragic thing to say but looking at the patterns of gun violence, most of the people claims that there will be another mass shooting in America. Yet, no law has been passed or introduced by the lawmakers to prevent this tragic violence. After every act of gun violence with regards to a mass shooting, there are calls for action and there will be a debate in the house.
It was made illegal in the 1930’s for the same reasons as alcohol, because it was believed that it was going to do harm to society. As years have gone by, it is obvious that a mistake was made. The fact that marijuana was made illegal has created numerous problems for the United States that on the long run could have been easily avoided. Countries in different parts of the world and some states within the United States have already legalized marijuana and they have all shown positive outcomes out of their decisions. Although marijuana is illegal in majority of the states, legalizing marijuana for recreational use would bring about social and economical reforms that would help deter crime in the country, increase the amount of money the government makes, and also help people that are medically in need of the drug.
I mentioned a few reasons on how the use of force has made police officers look bad. It is making officers look bad because recordings from the public only show the beatings and shootings, but do not capture the beginning of the confrontation. It will be bet for officers and the goof being of the community I officers use body-worn cameras because it will capture every second that happens between confrontations. The use of force is granted to the officers if they feel like the suspect is dangerous or is not complying with the officer. It was a right given to them by a case back in 1985, in which a person was killed by deadly force.
Some of these ways are loss of self control and impulsiveness which both relate to Ishmael, because he had no feelings self-control and impulsiveness because he had no consideration of what could happen to him during the war or what he was doing to other people. The text says “Drugs are chemicals because of their chemical structures, can affect the body in many different ways. Some drugs can even change a person's body and brain in ways that last long after the person has stopped taking drugs”. This quote is important because it proves how drugs change and it tells the affects people. Now I will show how Ishmael was traumatised.
Some may not be too familiar with the war on drugs and the effects it has had on the society we live in. The war on drugs was started by the Nixon administration in the early seventies. Nixon deemed drug abuse “public enemy number one”. This was the commencement of the war on drugs, this war has lasted to this day and has been a failure. On average 26 million people use opioids.
Some readers may feel that this editorial actually is not persuasive because meth is a terrible drug that should be kept illegal and more people would try meth if it becomes legal. But in reality, legalizing meth reveals that the editorial is effective because if we kept the drug illegal that still would not stop a person from desiring and acquiring meth and more people would not try meth because if a person wanted to try meth they would have done it before it became
The prohibition of intoxicating beverages was one of the least successful experiments in American social and criminal history, but in spite of its obvious failure in the 1920s, the American experiment in prohibition is still being continued today. For decades, our leaders have been telling us that America is in the middle of a drug epidemic, and the trade in illicit drugs has certainly created a criminal industry that is incredibly profitable and extremely violent. Until recently, however, few respectable political or law enforcement officials have been willing to consider the possibility of legalization. The moral, medical and social disgrace attached to illegal drug use was simply too great. In recent years, however, as the crisis has escalated
Therefore, if that argument does not make sense Ivins, she would naturally support the banning of guns because “[g]uns do kill” (215). By outright banning guns, this may result in the creation of a black market for guns. Since guns would be illegal, more people would resort to underhanded methods of obtaining firearms. This is similar to what happened when there was a prohibition of the sale, transportation, and manufacturing of alcohol across the nation. During this prohibition, places became dangerous because gangs were at war as a result of trying to remain in control of alcohol smuggling operations.
The United States is facing an epidemic. As many are aware, prescription opioid abuse is a problem across the country. Within the last ten years, the United States has seen an alarming increase of opioid overdoses. Prescription painkillers claim the lives of 120 people every day, and approximately 6,700 people visit the emergency room for opioid abuse. In the current state, prescription drug overdoses claim more lives than car accidents.
Furthermore, lowering the MLDA (Minimum Legal Drinking Age) to twenty-one would be irresponsible because medically drinking under twenty-one could interfere with early development with the brain and produce chronic problems in the future, such as greater vulnerability to addiction, reduce decision-making ability, memory loss, depression, violence, and even suicide. Also cause liver disease and cancer. In 2013, 71,713 of total liver disease among individuals aged 12 and older were 46.4 percent involved in alcohol.
