- It's Time to Make Drugs Legal for Personal Use Drugs are such a controversy and people have such strong opinions about whether they should be legal or illegal. I don’t have a strong opinion on this topic; I’m easily swayed. For the most part though, I think that they should be legalized because people do it anyways and if they were legal the government could regulate their use and sale more, the government should be receiving the profits of the drug business rather than dealers, marijuana has most of the same effects as cigarettes, and it’s been proven over and over how prohibition doesn’t seem to work....   [tags: Legalization Drugs]

I Have the Courage and Conviction to Succeed

- Throughout school, I was never sure of myself or what I wanted to do with my life, or what I would study once I graduated. I always believed that time would help me decide what I should do. I also believed that my interests will guide me in my journey to success. We’ve heard it over and over that we need to have interests in order to start living with intention; that meaningful lives can be created through following one’s interests. In my opinion, education without interest is useless, ineffectual because I believe that interest is one of the key driving forces....   [tags: personal narrative]

It is true that the Criminal Justice System class gave me a textbook taste of criminal law, but throughout the course I found myself craving more.

My illusive daydream concluded when I acknowledged that it was time to gain real experience before I submersed myself into a law program....   [tags: personal narrative]

My Experience Working in a Group as a Group

Personal Experience: Dreams are not Illegal

- As a country we have continued to grow, becoming more diverse and allowing acceptance to change, but still struggle to allow each other to express our own beliefs without the hardship of each others opinions.

Becoming close to a Hispanic student, I soon learned that this person does not have the same opportunity as me to continue their post secondary education.

Gun rights are a huge issue for me and a lot of people in the state of Virginia. It’s a huge concern, because anyone that wants to be able to have self-defense is for the 2nd amendment.
