BCJ 2501 Discussion Board Question There are many arguments in favor of drug legalization and just as many in favor of keeping strict legal control over mind-altering substances. Some, for example, say that in a free society, people should be permitted to do what they want as long as they do not harm others. Others say that drug use causes many personal and social problems. Are you in favor of drug legalization or decriminalization? Or, would you prefer to keep today’s drug laws or make them even tougher? Explain your answer. BCJ 2501 My Classmate Wrote ThisAnd I Have to Comment On It Seeing the effects of drugs can give affect an individual’s judgement on the issue. The drugs that are classified as illegal should not be permitted to be legal for use. There would be no control on how the drugs are handled or distributed. Children would start using and could be injured more due to the lack of control. With the drugs altering the minds of the individual, there is no way of knowing how it is going to effect the emotional state or what could happen while on the drug. The police force would have to be increased to monitor how and who is actually using according to what the limits are. In my opinion, with the overcrowding of the prison facility, use the three-strike rule on illegal drug violations. The way to ensure compliance for the user of the drug is through testing and re-habilitation. If the individual comes positive on a drug test three times during the program then send him or her to prison. In the prison system, many who are there for drug use become worse or start using heavier drugs, what ever they can get their hands on. Sending somebody for drug use to prison, would not be liable idea. A distributor of illegal drugs is better sent to prison, with hasher sentence than they are getting now. The actions of the distributor lead to multiple injuries and deaths. This should require a stricter punishment than a user. BCJ 2201 Discussion Board Question Compare the U.S. juvenile justice system to the Beijing Rules. What are the strengths and limitations of the Beijing Rules implemented by the United Nations? Based upon the readings and your perspective, should the U.S. juvenile justice system incorporate any of these rules? If so, which ones would benefit the U.S. juvenile justice system as a whole?
