Society in our world is used to seeing people take legal drugs (like cigarettes or alcohol) because they are allowed to be taken in public places. Illegal drugs, on the other hand, make you an outsider of society (except to drug junkies, who will see you as their best friend).The people in the New World get soma for free because it is, as already mentioned, all ordered and offered by the government. In comparison to that you have to pay for drugs in our world, and most of them have expensive prices that are only affordable to people with enough money. Legal drugs, however, aren’t as expensive as the illegal ones. This has the consequence that many people have to commit crimes and go into prostitution to buy the drugs they depend on.
If the police were doing their job properly, the figures should be decreasing not increasing. They would not be seizing more illegal stills than before. Despite the consequences, Americans enjoyed drinking and were willing to take the risk of arrest to carry on doing something they had previously done with no punishment. The number of people breaking the law made it increasingly difficult for the police to do their job effectively and catch the law-breakers. The figures in both
Letâ€™s take, for example, the drug OxyContin, letsâ€™ examine what happened to this medication. Just like Marijuana, It was created to help people from pain, but turned out to be a menace to society. Prescriptions being altered, doctors giving excessive amounts of money, addicts breaking into pharmacies and hurting people. The legalization of marijuana will bring more criminal activity because of the lack of impaired judgment associated with the drug. An individual will have impaired judgment and altered decision making if found to be under the influence of
Crack which is cheaper to produce became accessible to people of all socioeconomic statuses. Cocaine in the form of crack is now more widely abused . Cocaine in any form has had devastating effects on society, yet has been glamorized by media, especially in the movie industry. History of Cocaine
People who are already wealthy and commit white-collar crimes should not be let off easily. They hurt innocent peoples pockets while pocketing money for themselves. Prison time is like a death sentence to those who grew up having everything they ever wanted. Once people become greedy and start committing crimes like Martha Stewart then they deserve to get punished for stealing money. Prison rehabilitates criminals and once freedom, money and life’s luxuries are taken away from white-collar criminals then they will learn that committing such crimes are not worth prison time.
Anyone who was positive in the movie they tried to hurt or they killed them off. Young minorities are faced with theses images everyday from music videos on down to television shows and I feel that it was an awful depiction of black culture. I do feel that the movie is detrimental and can taint a young urban minorities mind; it could lead young men and women to idolize criminal lifestyle. When Goldie refers to himself as a “hero” I could almost imagine what is going on in a young teenager’s mind. Their probably thinking the movie was great or they want to sell drugs, be a player or pimp just like him without seeing the truth.
Dressing could be another form of identity. The Latino gangs in Chelsea city wore car coats and caps. The fun of most gangs is the drinking and use of drugs which they think that is merry making. Most Brooklyn and high end gangs use cocaine or use heroine to stimulate their systems. In the areas where the gangs are not so strong and vigilant like Lawrence and Chelsea, cheap drugs do the trick for
However, drug smuggling and weapons trafficking are also quite common. I believe that organized crime groups nearly always use legitimate businesses as a front to cover up their illegal operations; such as trash collecting, pizza parlors, and ice cream trucks. In a way, these groups thrive off of the people in their community, while the community is completely unaware of what’s going on.
Organized crime participants are master manipulators and can easily instill fear in the citizens within the area. This fear is often times enough to keep innocent people quiet when being questioned by law enforcement. This practice has helped organized crime not only survive but evolve within the United States. In addition, when the criminal group has the assistance of local law enforcement and judicial officials, it becomes common for a criminal case to end in a dismissal. In conclusion, it can be said that crime and politics have existed in America for decades, Money, and power are both present in crime and politics.
Children from poverty, who experience hopelessness, and who are bored and are looking for nice clothes and long to have money think being in a gang can earn them lots of pocket money. Gangs make their money by dealing drugs, forcing people to pay for protection. Television also plays a part in the role to the road of gangs. Many shows on television glorify gangs and are often told from the gang members’ perspective that depicts lots of violence. Teenagers long for acceptance and always think that being in a gang is a solution to all their
