Drugs Should Not be Legalized The question of whether to legalize drugs or not isA Very controversial and important issue. Drugs affect so many areas of society. Several groups have formed and spoken out regarding their position. After learning about the issues regarding both sides of the argument, I would choose to support those who oppose legalization of any drugs. Drugs simply create problems which affects society in several ways. The governments have made several efforts to control drugs and their users, however, to most the problem appears too out of hand. Society s answer to the problem is to trick the drug user by giving him what he wants. People believe that making drugs legal will take away the temptation to use them. This idea is wrong and far from logical. If drugs are legalized then they will be more accessible to the young, addicted, and ignorant. As a result the ready availability of addicting drugs, and as a result of their heavy use for medical problems, many individuals became addicted to the narcotics contained in these potent medicines. The only resulting effect will be a negative one. There are no positive aspects of putting drugs on the streets with a label reading "legal . There are plenty of people in society that find enough trouble on their own without the help of their country. Legalizing drugs would have a devastating result that would affect society badly. People need to understand that 70% of drug users are employed, and that the school bus driver who drives your children to school could smoke marijuana or that a doctor that is going to make a surgeon had consume it before doing it.
There is an idea that the drug user is a low class unemployed person. This is false. The drug user is often a worker with a family and a future. They are not all dirty with missing teeth and poor grammar. The common unconception of the consumers are dangerous to those members of society trying to rid the world of the problem. One of the greatest concerns of drugs is their contribution to the crime rate. Crime will always be a problem as long as drugs exist and are abused. Crime too often is the result of a drug problem. The crime rate would probably lower if drugs were illegal because the drug abusers wouldn t need to steal to pay for their drugs. Legalizing drugs would just add to an already rising problem. This should be reason enough to make all drugs illegal. Legalizing drugs will just feed the problem that teenagers and young adults face daily. Making drugs legal makes them more conscience accessible and easier to them. The problems that society already faces with the unemployed, homeless, criminals, and high school thrown out rate will simply increase. What society would want such problems to increase. The thought of how seriously this could impact our entire nation is both ridiculous and terrifying. I strongly believe that there are a great deal of people who have not tried drugs out of fear of getting caught. If this fear were taken from them, they would probably become drug addicts.I believe that our country should uphold a few basic standards, and keep drugs and the problems they create out of our society. Legalization of any drugs is an act of stupidity and ignorance.
