Everybody knows that the real problem with illegal drugs is that they cost too much and they are so difficult to get that drug addicts need to commit crimes in order to feed their habits If only people could go down to the nearest Seven-Eleven and buy a cocaine slurpee or drive up to the window at McDonalds and order a crack burger and a marijuana shake People wouldntt need to knock down an old lady and grab her purse or commit a home invasion robbery Around sixty-six billion dollars a year is spent on illegal drugs This shows that illegal drugs are a substantial portion of the Canadian economy They take money away from legitimate jobs products and services Statistics demonstrate that more than one million people are arrested for drug abuse in a single year meaning that drug use is a widespread problem for law enforcement It is clear that drug abuse contributes to property crimes as well as violent crimes such as theft and assault For these reasons all drugs should be legal inexpensive and easy to obtain One of the most compelling issues concerning drugs is that they encourage crime Crime is a direct result of drug abuse as it is often committed to supply the habit Drug-related crimes include violations of the law such as possession and trafficking vandalism assault and domestic violence Crimes such as theft fund further smuggling attempts or allows unrestricted use of the money earned from trafficking In other words while some drug-related crimes are committed in order to collect cash other such crimes are committed because the offender is intoxicated and not in control of his or her own actions Some offenders of the law commit crimes while under the influence of drugs that are not even illegal such as alcohol For example drunk driving is an offence and domestic violence and other crimes often occur while the offender is under the influence of alcohol
