Ethan (1989) claimed that “the production, sale, purchase, and possession of banned substances are crimes in and of themselves.” Therefore, without the drug prohibition law, these activities would significantly turn to be considered crimes. Another record provided that almost 40% of drug users confess that they committed crimes to afford drugs (Boyum & Kleiman, 1995). Although some scientists showed that marijuana could restrain a person’s aggressive behavior, the long-term usage may modify the nervous system in the way that promotes violence instead (Friedman, 2008, pp.49-72). Furthermore, legalization of marijuana could lead to a series of negative consequences on the community. In other words, if the drug is legal then it could be said that it is accessible and available for everyone including teenagers.
Even if you do not realize it, your family and the people you love, love you as well. Being a drug addict hurts the people you care about most in many ways. You tend to become isolated from the people you care about without you realizing it. With the addiction, your morals go away and so does all the money. Once the addiction starts you forget who you are, you lose your family and yourself in trying to get high.
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.
Do Sociological Factors Play a Role in Juvenile Delinquency? The topic of Juvenile Delinquency is far too complex and it needs to be accessed in the sociological terms to understand the impact of it on today’s youth. This concept has been defined as the criminal behavior being carried out by the Youth or the non-adults. Though it is difficult to define the complete construct in one go, the societal impacts which ensue these behaviors are necessary to be understood. The deviant behavior under juvenile delinquency includes taking drugs, sexual laxities, engaging in fights or in severe cases killing of suicide.
The government instead of being supporting this type of laws and trying to legalize drugs, should make an educational plan for youth and teens, and explain them what are the negative sides of using drugs. To increment plans against the use of tobacco and alcohol within minors, and to actually enforce the law of compsuntion, which is 18 in Mexico. Countries like US, actually enforce this law, and the compsuntion of alcohol and tobacco within minors is really really low. Another negative side effect of the legalization of drugs would be the increment of violence, because people who do not have money to buy drugs, would steal or kidnap people for money to spend it on drugs. Most of the violence in Mexico is due to the drug war, and if the drugs are legalized, the levels of violence would increase as well.
One can literally walk two blocks down the road and get any and every drug they need or want, and very cheap at that. It is truly sad to see what this world is coming to due to drug abuse and all the lives it has already ruined and seeing how many lives it will ruin in the near future. Usually, abusing illegal and prescription drugs is frowned upon; even if it is a close friend
It would gradually affect our future athlete generation who barely know anything. Futhermore, professional athletes have been motivated and convinced to use drugs with little understanding of the healthy risks of the supplement(s). Therefore, it is a worrying alarm to parents because our innocent young athletes rely on adults for their enlightenment. if this is the case what would our defenseless adolescent athletes do? They would easily be manipulated and start in taking drugs into their vulnerable and innocent
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. III. Health/ Side Effects a. The drug Depo-Provera (Medroxyprogesterone Acetate) that are used for castrating the individuals
However, within the first few minutes of the video, the speaker tells me drug dealers do not make any money. It is crazy how selling drugs are the same domain as working for somewhere like Kroger. I can relate to the fact how the lowest paid employees take care of the boss. Kroger employees work their butts off for the manager and assistant managers can reap all the benefits. Dealing drugs is one of the uncongenial ways to make money to take care of the family.
“Indeed, there was a high consumption of drugs during this time” (https://peaceloveandbeyond.weebly.com/drugs- culture.html ) . Drug use was obviously very popular but wasn't accepted by all.when dealing with a person who abuses drugs, the substances will have obvious effects on the relationships of others. “They are just drinking and taking drugs in a way which upsets others.” (www.drugs.ie/drugs_info/for_parents carers/effectson_the_family/) . Drugs have different effects on everyone around you. Raoul duke in this case had seen a lot of self conflicts while taking drugs during the story.
Supporters of anti-depressants argue that there is no such proof that anti-depressants are linked to suicide in teenagers or children under the age of 18 (“Anti-Depressant Drugs” 1). While there is research being done trying to prove this statement wrong or right, there are people benefiting from the great effects of these drugs. A variety of drugs have these advantages in helping coup with anxiety attack, “ immediate relief, few side effects, little drowsiness, no abuse danger, no sexual problems, may act more quickly” (“Generalized Anxiety Disorder: Toxic Worry” 4). As previously stated a medication is only harmful when the user does not use the medication properly (“Survey Reveal Teen Prescription-Drug Abuse on the Rise”). The truth in that statement cannot be stressed enough.
Restrictions and the Prohibition became a thing and many people in the late 19th and early 20th century were questioning the objections to non-medical usage and it soon became a hot debate. Drugs were used for everyday use within industrial workers and laborers. Drugs today are either known as Licit or Illicit ones because we know which ones are actually okay to use in everyday life and then the ones that hurt people. Caffeine is used today worldwide, and it is legal, but only some of the drugs are this way. We still have the illicit drugs that will always be that way such as cocaine and meth.
Growing up in today 's society I personally have witnessed much addictions to drugs whether that was through a tv show or in person happening to someone that I know. Many of the main causes for people to use drugs are the same causes that lead people to use soma in the book. The message that is shown through this quote I something that I definitely do not agree with as it is giving people an easy way out of their problems for a short amount of time rather than dealing with them and having them gone forever. The theme of this quote is shown to be through community and common good which is what people think this drug is doing to them is helping them in a way that will make them never feel pain in a way, but what it is really doing to them is hurting them and starting an addiction. The same lessons can be learned from Hamlet as lying to someone about what they have done could come back to hurt someone else in the end which happens in both Hamlet and Brave New World when King Claudius tries to poison Hamlet, but instead poisons his new wife Queen Gertrude.
