There is an ongoing debate on whether drug testing of welfare recipients is legal in many of the local state governments. This paper hopes to expand on some of those topics in a pro vs. con setting. The Pros and Cons of Drug Testing Welfare Recipients Pros - Most jobs require drug testing before and during employment Testing poor and working people for drugs is not a new idea. It’s a trend that picked up significant steam during the war on drugs when in 1986, President Ronald Reagan issued an executive order requiring all federal job applicants to pee in a cup. The order was quickly followed by the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, which required employers with federal grants to keep their businesses drug-free.
What all these athletes are overlooking is the serious harm that it can do to your body, inside and out. In order to prevent people from inflicting harm on themselves, we need to implement random drug tests from high school and up, all year round. We need to make sure the punishment for using steroids is severe and unforgiving. And we need to educate our athletes about steroids and not just the positives that result from it, but the overbearing negatives that outweigh it. If we can do this, we will be protecting our sports, but most importantly we will be protecting our
This argument is flawed because it is proven that drug use does not just affect self, but also affects all of society in cost, public health, and crime/violence. Drug use has dire consequences for all of society because drugs can destroy the minds and bodies or many people. Also, regulations to control drug use have a legitimate social aim to protect society and its citizens from the harm of drugs. Health care costs attributable to illegal drugs are more the $30 billion. This amount would only significantly increase if drug use were to spread after legalization.
Craig Mattox Prof. Panther-Yates ENG 101 Sec. 35013 Argument Essay 12 December 2012 The Case of Amnesty Everyone wants the opportunity at living the American Dream, even those from other countries, which is causing many to illegally immigrate to the United States. Unfortunately, the new Arizona Senate Bill 1070 is causing a lot of controversy because it is granting police officers the right to arrest anyone who they suspect is here in our country illegally. According to Governor Jan Brewer’s comment in Randal C. Archibold’s article, “Arizona Enacts Stringent Law on Immigration”, “we have to trust our law enforcement” (Archibold 1). Although Governor Jan Brewer in the article “Arizona Enacts Stringent Law on Immigration,” has a good point about the importance or working to solve our immigration crisis; however, this crisis does not mean that the police should be given the power to detain anyone suspected of being in the country illegally.
He brings up how other athletes who choose not to use these drugs feel as if their fellow competitors have cheated them. The author brings up what is being done to stop dopers from using these drugs and how there is a new ten-million dollar facility in use by the Olympic committee to not only catch those who cheat, but stop them from doing so in the first place. Sokolove concludes the article with his own opinion, “I don’t naïvely assume they’re clean, but I

Eric Ponder WR 115- Laurence 1.2 10/14/12 Steroids Here is a fun fact for you: Did you know steroids got it’s start long ago? People used to eat animal testicles before competing in sporting events thinking it would better their stamina and give them better endurance. Through the years doctors have changed it chemically into pills and injections. It affects every sport today, even our youth sports. In the early 20th century Russia was using steroids in the Olympic games giving them the upper hand in weight lifting.
What I would have done differently in the case of Martin Luther King Jr. consists of having adequate security in place to avoid being murdered in cold blood. Organizing a sound security team that could access the level of danger for each rally or protest to ensure my safety as well as others. In the case of Bill Gates, I would have kept the company solid and worked more with other companies to avoid the monopoly trial that federal government accused him of having a monopoly. This trial hurt his creditability and the company had to work very hard to regain that confidence back. Conclusion In conclusion, great thinkers like Bill Gates and Martin Luther King Jr. have revolutionized the way the world thinks and with great thinkers, the sky is the limit with what can be accomplished in the future that will make things better for generations to come.
It is thought that baseball’s numbers are more important than other sports, and therefore it is important how the players obtain the records and numbers (Brennan). The biggest debate now though, is whether or not Major League Baseball should be prohibiting the use of these drugs. As a private league, MLB has every right to ban anything they want, but the fact of the matter is that congress is cracking down and pressuring the league to “impose uniform drug-testing and punishment standards” (Guénette). Statewide prohibition of these drugs outside of private leagues makes using steroids and HGH a social problem instead of a personal one. Bodybuilders,
Steroids were the main issue back in the early 1990’s, and took a whole new level at the turn of the era. Steroids first become an issue when other sports, mainly Olympic sports were having athletes doping and improving their abilities beyond normal capacity. In 1988 the first act to try and prevent steroids was passed, the Anti drug abuse act of 1988. That act stated that; “This law amended the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and created criminal penalties for persons who "distribute or possess anabolic steroids with the intent to distribute for any use in humans other than the treatment of disease...”Many people speculated if steroids would
