He would have to go the legal way and try to make himself a respectable business person or lose all of his business. The bottom line is, if drugs are legalized it would stop a lot of crime and stimulate the economy. Drugs are bad, but wouldn't it be better to stop the criminal activity than let all of the crime go unchecked. The drug trafficking these days is getting to be ridiculous and something must be done to stop the rage of drug use and crime in our societies today.
Drugs, Crime and Prohibition Do drugs really cause crime, or is it our governments way of controlling the communities? Many people blame drugs for every problem in our society, but is it the true evil in our society? No one person can answer that question. There are only opinions and supposed theories on this issue. We have been taught over the years that drugs were bad and that they only affected the poor and less fortunate, and turned them into crazy criminals, but this isn’t true to any extent.
Addicts end up committing crimes to pay for drugs because of their high cost, small time users and dealers have no choice but to turn to a life of crime if they are incarcerated, drug cartels break laws to retain power, and more often than not, police officials are also lured by the high markups in the drug trade. By criminalizing drug use, we are creating a vicious cycle of crime that is undermining the very purpose of this policy.
Drugs are bought illegally or prescribed and used daily. It is a rising problem around the world that needs to stop. There are a few risk factors that make one more susceptible to becoming an addict.

When you start taking drugs like GHB and mixing them with alcohol and other street drugs, the effects can be catastrophic. The more you lose your inhibitions, the more of the drug you take until something tragic happens. Obviously, this is why these types of drugs are illegal. But being illegal isn’t enough. Teenagers need to know that these drugs are out there and commit to making good choices before their awareness becomes impaired.
The use of drugs in society seems to be at a high. Many people are using drugs like: crystal meth, cocaine, and heroin, and if they cannot find get their drug of choice they will do just about anything to get their hands on what they think they need so bad. That’s where violence comes in they rob people which sometime results in people getting seriously hurt or even killed just so they can get their next high. I feel most of this can be resolved if the government would not allow such violent shows to air and if the government would do more with drug abusers. Most people arrested for drugs do their time and get out and start using again.
The pros are that it might help students get away from drugs, and it may help someone see the consequences to drugs. The cons are that the tests are expensive, and these tests may come back as a false positive. A comment is that all school faculty should be drug tested. As you can see, there are many good and bad sides to drug testing students.

Some people from long time ago until now believed the chemicals that are in the drug can be useful for treating illnesses. But also there are some arguments and researches that show that these believe are not scientifically true. Because of these arguments and researches shows that marijuana is a dangerous drug and it can be harmful for society so it should not be legal.
From past experience I can say that schools at a young age teach students about the drugs but because the words and terms for the brain and areas that are affected by the drugs are so complicated I can see why kids at a younger age would not understand them. Maybe if we find a way we can educate our future generation we might be able to stop the abuse of drugs. Enforcing laws like we have on marijuana might help or lessen the abuse of drugs but we have to find way to help stop the abuse of certain drugs in order to prosper our lives and futures.
The gang life contains many negative aspects including the most notorious reason for violence, drugs. Getting high seems appealing to many students but with the excitement of getting high comes the responsibility of buying and selling the drugs. The biggest reason for a gang to start would be drugs. Marijuana might seem like a harmless drug but it can be the most dangerous drug to start doing. When someone smokes marijuana it attracts them to use other drugs and these addictions need gang support.
