Disadvantages include side effects, which are numerous and can cause life long damage to abusers (the major issue with the use of drugs), unfair advantages and can cause disqualification from competitions and tarnishing of reputations. For example, Lance Armstrong was stripped of titles, banned from the sport and his reputation was destroyed. For some athletes, the short term goal is more important than the
However, it is argued that drugs should be panned in sports because they will affect people 's health and it may lead them to death. In the article, "Illegal substances," Roman (2011) writer Drugs usage in sports should be panned at any cost for many reasons. The first reason why drugs should be panned is because drugs can cause death. Many people think that if they took drugs or hormones they will be stronger, faster and much more better than the other, will this is true, but it will cause sudden death and then being better or stronger won 't matter. For example, there are some people who takes winning at competitions really seriously, so they do whatever it takes even if they took drugs or use any other illegal steroids to win.
The prohibition of marijuana does not stop Americans from obtaining the drug, but simply intensifies the unnecessary criminality and danger surrounding its use. Marijuana should be legal to obtain because statistics and scientific studies throughout the world prove that the legalization of the drug would not only make the United States safer, but also benefit the country financially. The criminalization of marijuana has dramatized a violent image of the drug which media outlets exacerbate by using scare tactics and myths. Legalizing marijuana would eliminate any unsafe or uncomfortable means that the over 100 million Americans who have admitted to using the drug currently have to go through to obtain it. This would separate violence, murder, and the sales of other deadly drugs such as cocaine or heroin from recreational marijuana use.
It is only fair when applied equally for everyone. That is why the state has chose the certain age that is reasonable for the people to consent. Though the individual cases for the reasons of health and drugs would have a different outcome connecting with the laws. These laws may annoy those few minors that are capable of granting consent, but they tend to protect far more minors who think sex isn 't a big deal. Therefore Statutory rape laws should not be changes since they really help individuals that are not ready for this step to becoming a victim to rape other than few
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
As the ideal utilitarian approach focuses on the concept that the good will outweigh the bad, the good through gun control is easily identified through the way it will reduce the amount of violence as the restrictions of guns will reduce casualties. This has become the fundamental argument for the proponent camp where it is also seen how proponents argue the fact that “guns kill people” following cases of gun violence. As seen in the example of the cases that are ongoing in Baltimore, Maryland and Compton, California, these represents the clear fact that gun control is needed. The society will be a better place and it will be in the interest of the overall society for gun control to be needed. The clear advantages and good will be shown through the reduction of gun violence.
However, heroin is much easier to obtain and less expensive than prescription drugs. Heroin is an extremely dangerous drug for many reasons. First, because it is an illegal drug, it is completely unregulated. Heroin producers often use cutting agents in order to reduce the purity of the drug, and thus make more money. This means that users typically do not know the content or purity of the drug that they are using.
Whether it is the hard drugs such as cocaine and heroin, or the prescription drugs such as Xanax and benzodiazepine. Teenagers are becoming obsessed with drugs and its use as it makes them popular which needs to change. Students need to know that there are more important things and that drugs affect them negatively and often lead to crimes. They can also ruin many futures as if caught they are sentenced to jail time. Lastly, gateway drugs are the most dangerous as they seem the least harmful.
When drugs are illegal, police officers tend to deal with people who owned the drug more compared to the criminals who committed other crimes. Instead, if it is legalized, they will focus more on other crimes such as personal crimes, property crimes and more. Eventually, it will provide us a better and safer country to live in. In a country that is under controlled and has good security, drugs usage would be safer among the adults. When drugs are legalized, it would have age restrictions for people who buy drugs and it is actually controlling the quality of drugs usage.
One of these is explaining why the term ‘conflict’ was not appropriate. The reason is that ‘conflict’ is endemic to society. They are needed for making changes and adaptations in the society. Moreover, democracy provides constructive way of resolving conflict. However, Kaldor agrees that there are advantages in not using the word war, as using it may legitimate certain types of violence such as the ones related to drug wars that should not be considered as wars but as crimes.
I believe that marijuana should be legal for recreational purposes in the United States. This is because it would provide the United States many benefits if we were to make it legal, and the fact that it actually hurts us as a country by having marijuana illegal. If we were to make it legal, it would make the economy better. It would also bring down crime and get many people out of prison. In addition to this, it would also undo injustices done in the past.
These statistics are frightening thus sparking the attention of those in the healthcare industry, policymakers, and the public. Several policies have been proposed to combat and slow down the endemic abuse of drug overdoses. However, for all the talk about ways of dealing with opioid abuse, there appears to be a limited discussion of the commonsense solution to preventing it from spreading. A popular policy has been a mandatory prescription of narcotic drugs for medical uses. However, it is better to address this problem from a different standpoint.
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
