SSU Criminal Justice Discussion
I have 3 discussions that need to be answered on college level. Discussion 1: Given the fact that heroin is one of the least often used of the illicit drugs, do you think that its use generates more hysteria and concern than is warranted by its objective harm and danger? Or do you think there is a legitimate basis for the fear and concern? Explain your answer in a minimum of two (2) paragraphs with each paragraph containing 5-7 complete sentences. Discussion 2: What are some of the effects of the narcotics that would lead some members of the society to try and use them? On the other hand, what are some of their effects that would repel potential users from trying them? Given their frequency of use relative to some of the other drugs we’ve looked at (such as marijuana, amphetamines, cocaine, and LSD), which of these two forces is most influential or dominant? Detail your response in a minimum of three (3) paragraphs with each paragraph containing 5-7 complete sentences. Disscussion 3: In the United States, addiction to and abuse of drugs in general, and narcotics specifically, has waxed and waned since the nineteenth century, with periods of much greater use alternating with periods of much less use. Can you imagine a time in the future when drug abuse, including addiction to the narcotics, simply declines to zero? Why or why not? Detail your response in a minimum of four (4) paragraphs with each paragraph containing 5-7 complete sentences.
