Public shaming at times is not even a punishment for some, if someone does a crime they should also do the time. Public shaming can comes with serious consequences if given to the wrong person and if given to others it is just a slap on the wrist. Crimes should be taken seriously and so should the punishments. People should go to jail or do community service based on what they have done, they should not be let go so easily. The court system seems to think that by using public shaming a criminal will not do the crime again.
The Good That Comes With Legalizing Imagine having to sneak around to do something and having to worry about getting caught. It makes you get paranoid and fearful. Or worse trying something just because it 's illegal, it draws your attention why it 's not allowed for everyone to use it. This is what drugs being illegal feel like for most people that have used drugs. They might not even be getting hurt because of drugs, yet they aren 't allowed to use them.
The issue on crime is split people say the crime would go down because the price of drugs would go down , maybe this is true but it is very unlikely. As people become addicted they need more and more, what happens when the money runs out? People are going to do whatever it takes to obtain their "fix" which includes stealing , robbing , and burglarization possibly even murder, anything to get their drugs. My feeling on this subject is that of total disagreement with the legalization of drugs. People only want the legalization for the profit end of the industry , which is the only appealing side of the drug trade, but it is not appealing enough to sacrifice my children's future for money.
Acknowledging then that drugs have a divesting affect for users and it makes them complicit to abuse others and specifically defenseless children. But this doesn’t seem like a case to point out on illegality. How do the illegality and a war against addicts fix any of the abuse to others outlined? Addicts become involved in criminal activity and that’s a slippery slope to defy other laws, to become uninterested in “help” that potentially leads to your own incarnation. They therefore would have no... ... middle of paper ... ...tead of helping them.
They abuse it by injecting it with a needle, smoking it, or by snorting it. They do this because they stopped taking these prescription drugs that gave them “jolt” feeling, followed by a state of fatigued, which is the same feeling that heroin gives them. Also, in comparison between opioids and heroin, your body builds up a tolerance for both. This means that the people would need more of the substance to get the feeling that they want. This is a major issue with opioid use because the patients need more of the medication to get their pain to go away, and then get addicted and cannot stop taking the pill.
Recently, we have tried to track the location of drug use. We find places where drugs tend to be, and seek to close them down as an effort to decrease the overall use of drugs. This has proved to be an ineffective technique because it does not change people's craving for drugs. Reasons leading up to drug use still exist. Arresting people for drugs does not kill their desire to use them.
A lot of people believe that outlaw drugs can lead to the violence rate increase, but if the drugs are legalized, the crime rate could be reduced, especially organized crime. Buyers and sellers cannot resolve the disputes of trades with courts in the black market. That kind of conflict can be solved by legalization of the
Even though consuming drugs is his or her’s choices to begin with, “the brain changes that occur over time challenge an addicted person’s self-control and hamper his or her ability to resist intense impulses to take drugs” (“DrugFacts…”). Drug addiction takes a lot more than a strong will to quit, “drugs change the brain in ways that foster compulsive drug abuse, quitting is difficult, even for those who are ready to do so” (“DrugFacts…”). Treatment is the best way to help with drug addicts: “Treatment offers the best alternative for interrupting the drug/criminal justice cycle for offenders with drug problems” (Drug Addiction…). Drug addicts need time, medication, and support to prevail in the war with addiction. Some people would say that drugs are their choice so they can choose to stop, but that is not the case.
Gang members may front (give the customer some drugs in which they have a certain time to repay the cost of the drugs back) the drug to a customer whom they believe to be a loyal customer. This can be very deadly if the customer does not pay the gang member back. If the front is not repaid the gang member or the whole gang will come looking for the person who owes money. The gang members will hunt down and hurt or even go as far as kill the person the first chance they get if the person is found. If they can't find the person they will go the extra mile and threaten to kill someone in the person family.
So, although pushing addicts into treatment may be more harmful in the long run, not offering harm-reduction and/or treatment opportunities at all, will only facilitate addicts’ continued usage of drugs. Not offering treatment or rehabilitation opportunities for addicts, only leads to addicts’ deeper internalization of the addict stereotype the belief that they are ‘undeserving losers’, ‘failures’, and ‘social-rejects’. Consequently creating the inevitable cycle of drug abuse, treatment and relapse.
