    Why has America become so violent an essay about american violence. Murder is regarded as a crime in all modern civilized societies. Crime is shown in the media and is prevalent in society.

Ostrowski, political analyst of the Cato Institute (from James' 'Thinking About Drug Legalization'), states that drug laws greatly increase the price of illegal drugs, often forcing users to steal to get the money to obtain them. Although difficult to estimate, the black market prices of heroin and cocaine appear to be many times greater than their pharmaceutical prices. For example, a hospital-dispensed dose of morphine (...
  • Legalization Of Drugs The Drug Connection
    1,324 words
    Legalization of Drugs The drug connection is one that continues to resist analysis, both because cause and effect are so difficult to distinguish and because the role of the drug-prohibition laws in causing and labeling 'drug-related crime' is so often ignored. There are four possible connections between drugs and crime, at least three of which would be much diminished if the drug-prohibition laws were repealed. 'First, producing, selling, buying, and consuming strictly controlled and banned sub...

    Gun Control is not Crime Control Americans are faced with an ever-increasing problem of violence. The streets of America are now a war zone. Teenage gangsters murder one another for drug territory, and innocent victims are caught in the crossfire. However, most recent and most abhorrent, is our children are killing one another.

    ... ss likely to fulfill their familial and social obligations. Mill said that 'if he refrains from molesting others in what concerns them... he should be allowed, without molestation, to carry his opinions into practice at his own cost. ' Evidently, he, the user, is not 'refraining from molesting others in what concerns them' in most cases. Furthermore, mind constricting drugs in themselves victimize users and therefore should not be legal. A relativist view is that drugs are part of our cultur...

    Crime and the Media Criminology 330 Crime and the Media The public depends on the news media for its understanding of crime. Reportedly three quarters (76%) of the public say, they form their opinions about crime from what they see or read in the news (Dorfman & Schiraldi, 2001). After reviewing five hours of reality crime television shows, one is left with a very dismal look on society and a prejudice towards minorities as they are largely depicted as the perpetrators of crime. This new genre c...

    Reasons For The Legalization Of Drugs We will never get rid of drugs and until we realize this we will still have one of the worst education systems, the largest imprisonment rate, the largest crime rate, and a depletion of money from other more important budgets. Legalizing drugs will create drug regulation, crime reduction, and increased revenue for the government. Regulation is the control of who can get a product, how much that person can get, how the person can get it, and who produces it. ...
  • Drug Problem
    242 words
    The population increase in jails is a problem with no easy answer. Many feel the increase is the result of mandatory sentencing for drug related crimes. I also believe this is true but I don t think letting criminals back into the society is the solution. More money needs to be put into the prison systems, along with more mandatory sentencing into the legal systems. With automatic punishments individuals will be more reluctant to commit crimes especially ones considered to be drug-related acts. ...

  • Laws For Prevention Of Illegal Drug Use
    749 words
    American Drug Laws: Do They Help or Hurt I believe the drug laws are in serious need of reform. We tend to forget that alcohol is a drug and that at one time it was prohibited without success. Also, I believe that a civil body of government rather than a criminal one should regulate drug use. It is a social problem, not a criminal one. As a largely victimless crime they should not have their civil rights taken away just because they like to take drugs which we have arbitrarily made illegal. Drug...

This polemic is allowing war's effects to keep growing to the point where societies' harmony, peace, and stability are being lost. The...

    Twelve Reasons To Legalize Drugs There are no panaceas in the world but, for social afflictions, legalizing drugs comes possibly as close as any single policy could. Removing legal penalties from the production, sale and use of "controlled substances' would alleviate at least a dozen of our biggest social or political problems. With proposals for legalization finally in the public eye, there might be a use for some sort of catalog listing the benefits of legalization. For advocates, it is an inv...
