war on drugs

War On Drugs This is supposed to be a free country. I don’t see that it would harm you

or anybody else if someone smokes a few joints a week in moderation. What is the harm

done to you? Is this enough to take fathers and mothers away from children? I know I’m

not the sharpest knife in the draw but to say that drug users might abuse the stuff and

cause problems for their family or neighbors is not very far from saying that because you

have a knife in your kitchen draw that you might choose to use it to cause trouble for you

family or neighbors. Please tell me, by what reason should marijuana be illegal and please

speak from first hand experience if you can. Isn’t twenty years of doing the same thing

long enough? Isn’t it time to step back, gather accurate information and objectively

consider alternatives? Wasn’t there an objective once? Distinguish between soft and hard

drugs like Holland did and reduce actual drug crime by 75%, actual crime, not just

prohibition violations. Treat addiction as a health problem, instead of a crime-just like

alcohol is treated-and you reduce HIV infection and decrease the costs to society. I am

a very opened minded person and have listened to a lot of opinions and read a lot of

articles on this subject. It seems that anything we find that stimulates us or alters our state

of mind in some way is a stamped as a drug. How can we take something like cocaine,

which is so addictive some people have to go to a hospital to get off it and many people

have died from overdoses, and put it in the same catagorize as marijuana, a part of a

plant which nobody has ever overdosed from. From my perspective, the government has

no reason to make marijuana illegal, except that it acts as a stitch. I will get to that in a

minute. If it were legal, I really doubt we would have as much drug dealing and drug deal

related deaths and crimes. It could be treated like alcohol, same rules, maybe more, but

we could have an age limit and everything. (Its (marijuana) defiantly much safer than

alcohol I don’t know anybody in the right mind who could argue with that. Alcohol is one

of the biggest killers in the world, who do you ever here on the news dying of marijuana

use? Sure it may cause long cancer, but you can eat it too. Sure somebody might be too

high to drive but make rules against it. Its too bad we couldn’t replace alcohol with

marijuana. I would much rather see people in my family as well as my parents smoke pot

than drink alcohol. I could go on and on with this forever. You probably are getting the

impression that I am a pot head but believe me I am not. This subject just irritates me

how we can serve alcohol which makes people violent and go home and beat their wives

in front of their kids but the government can’t sell a part of a plant that makes people at

ease. I feel I’m getting off subject so I’m gonna get back to my point. But, if it were legal,

a lot of marijuana dealers who base most or all of their business on marijuana would turn

to other drugs such as crack to base their business upon. That is what I mean by the

stitch. Because we all know how crack changed the inner cities of America. Crack

definitely increase the number of street gangs, deaths, and crimes of all kinds in this

country and we all know crack is made from cocaine. So what I am saying, is that

instead of trying to shoot at all drugs at once, only go after cocaine. Forget marijuana,

make it legal, the government sure made a profit from cigarettes and alcohol. Make a

profit from marijuana. Use the profits to fight the war on cocaine and heroin. Because

you know when the cocaine supply is weakening, so is the crack. Most of the crack sold

on our streets is made inside our country by dealers who buy the cocaine that comes

from outside the country. But when the cocaine supply is dying down, heroin is going to

take over so that’s why we have to fight that too. It’s the hardcore drugs that ruin our

society, not marijuana. Sure there are many other drugs that are addictive, and we need

to separate hardcore life destroying drugs from the recreational not so addictive drugs.

We need to take things one step at a time. If you’re a thief you can’t steel everything in

the store at once, you gotta take what you want most and work on getting that. (I know

that’s a terrible example but I think it’s a good one to get my point across). There are

many drugs that are used for many reasons. We need to sort through the good (at least

not so bad), bad, and ugly and make zero tolerance for the bad and ugly, and really

reconsider the good (referring to marijuana). I think reconsidering some laws and

opening our minds and putting our brains to work a little harder on this whole issue will

get us the results a lot quicker and cheaper than what we are doing about the problem

right now.Annotated Bibliography The topic I choose was Iraq and its past and still

ongoing problems with the United Nations. The reason I choose this topic as

oppose to another topic is war and the United Nations has always fascinated

me. With Saddam Hussein still being stubborn with UN weapons inspectors

it was incredibly easy to obtain information regarding this topic. The Los

Angles Times; California; Feb 12 2000; The newest article I attained was

from the February 12 edition of the Los Angles Times. It was entitled

“Compromise Broached on issue of Arms Inspectors in Iraq”. It discussed

how Iraq is still refusing to allow the UN weapons inspector into the nation. It

also talks about the UN feelings on the chance of inspectors ever being

allowed to do their job. Apparently the Vice President has no intention of

ever letting the inspectors into the country. Last Thursday he said, ” There

shall be no return of the so-called inspection teams. We reject the infiltration

by spies using such cover.” In my humble opinion it would make life in Iraq

better if the inspectors where just allowed into the country. Most importantly

sanctions the UN has placed upon Iraq would be removed. Apparently the

really don’t care about the sanctions according to their deputy foreign

minister Nizar Hamdoun who said they can live without sanctions “forever”.

The UN has a different opinion they believe they cannot. I believe they can,

they have done fine up to this point and I think they will continue to do fine. I

think Iraq has many things they don’t want the UN to know about such as

chemical and biological weapons. They are a threat and need to be dealt with

accordingly. New York Times; New York; Feb 8, 2000; Barbara Crossette

The next article I choose was from the February 8 issue of the New York

Times. This article was entitled “Iraq Suspected of Secret War Effort”. This

article sort of scared me. It was about in Britain, research and intelligence

experts, also convinced that there are more germ warfare agents left in Iraq

than previously known, have suggested that Iraq may have produced the

organism that causes bubonic plague. But no evidence has been published in

support of that theory, but American experts say, and United Nations

inspectors found not trace of the plague in Iraq. This is only because Iraq not

allowing them to inspect and when the UN inspectors where allowed in they

where only allowed to inspect “certain” areas. This statement made by the

so-called American experts was bull*censored*; they only said to comfort

the American public. This expert Milton Leitenberg from the Center for

International and Security Studies at the University of Maryland has been

collecting information about Iraqi weapons sites and activities from two Iraqi

defectors. Milton is really not sure if the new thing is a virus and not a

bacterial agent but he said in an interview that Hans Blix, the new chief

inspector for Iraq might need to focus his attention on Biological weapons.

Milton and other British experts say inspector will have to be more aggressive

in demanding access in Iraq. I think so to, biological weapons are illegal as a

form of warfare since the Geneva Convention outlawed them. And the fact

that there are not allowed to be used as a form of warfare should be reason

enough to be more aggressive not to mention the fact that these weapons of

mass destruction will be if not are already in the hands of a mad man! Also

according to this article the eradication of biological weapons in Iraq may be

as important or more important to the people of Iraq as to the outside world.

Experts working with the United Nations Special Commission, the first

disarmament task force created for Iraq after the Gulf War said some of the

bacterial and viral agents Iraq was producing then had little application for

war. Evidently a fungal agent called aflatoxin can lead to liver cancer, and

rotavirus, which causes diarrhea in children and the elderly. This is just

another reason for the inspectors to be more insistent in their attempt to gain

entry into Iraq, their military compounds, and laboratories. World History

Volume II; William J. Duiker & Jackson J. Spielvogel Pages 1136-1137

Duiker provided some insight on the history of this conflict. According to

Duiker “Saddam Hussein, assumed power in Baghdad in 1979, then accused

Iran of violating the territorial agreement and launched an attack on his

neighbor.” (1136) It seems Saddam has been a problem from the beginning

and should have been taken care of before he became a real threat like he is

now. Duiker also says during the war between Iraq and Iran poison gas was

used on civilians and also defenseless children were used in the minefields.

Then in August 1990 Hussein’s military forces went into the small country of

Kuwait and claimed that they were stealing oil from Iraqi land. This is when

the United Nations decided to get involved, after all not only was this small

defenseless country under attack but our nations oil supply was endangered.

Really in my opinion this is the main reason we got involved not for the moral

reasons but the financial reasons. From here the book taught me no new

information. We restored peace to Kuwait and destroyed much of Saddam’s

forces. The only problem is we did not destroy enough of his forces because

they are better equipped than they ever were. I have herd that Saddam if he

did posses such chemical weapons that the article spoke of he does not have

the launch capability, meaning he does not posses sufficient I.C.B.M.s (Inter-

Continental Ballistic Missiles) but how long before he does posses such

devices. Only time will tell but for now it is high time we tell Saddam and the

Iraqi government to let us in or else threaten another military strike maybe

even nuclear attack. Annotated Bibliography The topic I choose was Iraq

Try Collegiate Care Trust

By: James Kyle

Justin Cameron February 1st, 1999 Lack of trust is a reoccurring theme

through out the three cases. One might ask, why you need trust in any civil

society? Lack of trust in a civil society has the society with no real stability.

Trust in authority is lacking in each case. The approval rating for Bill Clinton

is high. Does this mean that most Americans trust Bill Cliton? Most polls

would tell that trust is a serious issue. So, what is the consequences of

Americans not having trust in there president? It can’t be to bad because the

economy is doing great and the budget and finally balanced. Most Americans

are happy so what is the problem? The lack of trust is a direct correlation

with weak and/or illegitimate authority. Trust with our president has always

been a sensitive issue. Richard Nixion broke that trust with the country and

sealed the fate for himself and his party for a short term. No one really

understood why Nixon had ordered the break in of the democratic offices in

the first place. What made matters worse is Nixion never came out and

admitted his mistake even when the evidence was overwhelming. Clinton’s

case has some similarities to it. While he finally did come out and admit what

he had done he showed little remorse and accusations still remain about a

cover up. The lack of trust in a political position in this country tends to the

norm. It is created and redefined every day in Washington with a political

figure. This creates an image and a strong stereotype for all political figures.

This in turn hurts all of our civil society. Without the trust then how do you

have the legitimate authority to lead the country. Most would say that

Clinton’s leadership really is not the question but his judgment is. To me, that

is a contradiction and that poor judgment leads to poor leadership. His poor

judgment leads to his ethics and morals that he has. People with weak family

values will have a hard time trusting Cliton with just recognition of their own

problems. The lack of trust is not just with Cliton in the impeachment

arguments. All of the political system seems to be lacking credibility. How

mush faith do people have that their representative will represent their opinion

and not act in the best interest of their party? Who in all this has the best

interest in the country? If Congress does not represent the majority and

decides on the rational of what party they are in then it is a illegitimate use of

authority. Cananada’s theme in the early part of the book was an issue with

trust. In such a community, trust was not apparent and was earned. The lack

of trust went further then authority. In his neighborhood trust was earned the

hard way by a serious of tests. The policy matrix in that community dictates

that trust when earned is essential for survival. Trust within sub cultures of the

society also lead to survival. Even with individual families trust was earned.

Geoffrey Canada’s mother sent his bothers out to retrieve a jacket to prove

that the family could trust in each other in adversity. Federal mandates

dictated massive efforts to extent efforts to improve the equality of the

educational opportunity. A lack of trust was apparent in Hamiltion High in the

60’s and 70’s. This was in part do to the end of segregation of schools. At

such a great time of transition there were so many outside influences trying to

control the policy matrix. Most notable was the federal government

mandating the segregation. The lack of shared values during the transition

played a crucial role in the process. The civil rights was suppose to be a

trickle down effect from the federal government. The problem there is that

not all respected government officials believed in equality for education.

Conflict arose and with it side were drawn. Ho could the government decide

on what a “moral education” is when such confusion existed on what morals

were for many political figures. The lack of shared values weighed heavily

with trust of many just to provide a safe educational environment. The lack of

values can be an argument traced back to the Clinton’s scandal. Who is to

say that Clinton himself did not help dictate what many people believe is a

society that is severely lacking values. To many, he began
