Drug Abuse Cracking Down On Those Who UseAn estimated 148 million Americans were current users of illegal drugs in 1999 according to the Bureau of Justice StatisticsHighlights Drugs have been a problem in America for many years There have been many proposals on how to reduce the problem none of which have had much success Drugs are easily available to almost anyone who wants them Obviously it is very hard to stop drugs from getting into the US or to stop the production That would take a lot of time and money and could not completely get rid of the problemMy proposition is to crack down on the users and lesson the urge to do drugs I do think drug education is important but its not fixing the problem I also think treatment can be effective to those who are willing which arent many Therefore I feel the governments time and money should be spent on cracking down harder on users Through my research I found many reasons to support my claim According to the Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services 822 billion dollars were spent on treatment for mental illness and the abuse of alcohol and illegal drugsPrinciples Much of that was wasted because we obviously still have a major problem Some people claim that addicts need special treatment and should not be housed with violent inmates they should be put in rehabilitation rehab or treatment centers However although many drug users are not violent criminals when they start to use the need for their fix can cause them to commit violent crimes Many addicts will do anything for their drugs The Bureau of Justice Statistics showed that an estimated 16 of convicted inmates committed their offense to get money for drugsHighlights Also the influence of narcotics causes people to do things they wouldnt normally do and takes them out of their normal state of mind After all
