Some states in our country do test for anabolic steroids. It should be a mandatory issue to be able to test not just high school football players, but all student athletes around the country for steroids. Even in some cases schools are testing their athletes for marijuana and opiates. These drugs are not even performance enhancing drugs. Schools should save their money on those drug tests and actually test for something that is performance-enhancing and that is also hurting these young athletes.
They sign on to be a role model for the sport, which includes following its rules. Therefore it is appropriate to have routine drug testing at all levels of athletics, including high school. Additionally, the little drug testing that does occur is no deterrent for student athletes or pros to stop using. While they know that using drugs is illegal, athletes will not stop unless there are consequences or a significant possibility of getting caught. Even though the use of some drugs may benefit the team as a whole, it is still against the rules and should be dealt with harshly.
Labeling a particular crime as special or different does not deter criminals from their true intention. If we place a "special" label on certain types of murder, rape or vandalism we are not preventing the hate that is the motive for such crimes. This is not the true goal of society. Helen Dodge makes a compelling argument to shun the members of such hateful communities in her article "Special Crimes Need Special Laws", when she says that the public should band together against such forces (Dodge 140). However, even she had to admit that these special laws won't deter the criminals who practice these violent acts.
Drugs are good. Just kidding but shouldn’t we at least consider the consequences of the zero tolerance policy? Drug abuse in schools today is a major problem. Zero tolerance policy is a great way to stop the drugs but some of these rules are enforced just a little too harsh. I have seen drugs ruin people’s lives and tear apart their family, there is no doubt that anyone should be doing drugs, let alone kids.
Seeing someone doing drugs makes them more curious to know how drugs will make them feel. Although substances can feel good at first, they can ultimately do a lot of harm to the body and brain. So as parent, we must always guide our kids to have a better path ahead. We need to learn how the drugs are harmful to us and explain them for kids to know to prevent them from bad
Drinking isn’t the only way alcohol can hurt you. Sometimes you get hurt and your not even the one that’s drinking. Like for example getting hit by a drunk driver. Dare is important because it teaches kids not to drink or smoke or to do bad things. Dare is also important
Do they really think that lowering the drinking age would make these students behave any differently? Students will never drink responsibly. In reality the most effective way to reduce binge drinking is not by lowering the drinking age from twenty one it is to simply tell the truth and make sure that young people understand the facts of what can happen to
To further enforce this law would only be a waste of effort and “more dangerous” to those who are actually doing the enforcing. I think the second premiss is completely credible; “society” will not stop the use of marijuana if there are new laws passed stating the use of marijuana is prohibited. Therefore the conclusion that states “severe laws against marijuana are more dangerous to society than the activity which they are designed to prevent” is plausible due to the fact of reality that on a regular basis people don’t obey these laws. Getting in trouble with the law is more dangerous to society than just taking marijuana as an activity. For this particular argument it would have to be “Circular Reasoning”, it’s a fallacy that in which the premises include the claim that the conclusion is true or (directly or indirectly) assume that the conclusion is true.
The first reason is a simple rule of adolescence: teenagers often like to rebel against authority figures, especially parents. If teenagers are causing trouble and breaking rules prior to their curfew, what makes parents think they will obey the curfew? Many psychologists agree that restrictions and rules are what cause teens to break them in the first place. Carl Pickhardt, Ph.D. states, “When parents feel hard-pressed by these acts of rebellion (breaking social rules, running with wilder friends for example) they are best served by allowing natural consequences to occur and by repeatedly providing positive guidance.” Teenagers will break rules if they feel too restricted by authority, and that will get them into trouble That brings us to our next point: curfews stress teenagers out. A survey of six hundred students showed two- thirds of the students were worried about stress.
The public is able to buy them at their free will resulting in drugs corrupting schools and America’s youth. The age regulation of drugs would have a positive effect on the drug use of America’s youth, it would be much harder for them to get. Today, it’s a lot more common to witness a drug deal happen in school rather than someone selling alcohol or cigarettes. It is extremely dangerous to drug users because there is no regulation, making a lot of buyers unaware of the potency of the drug or if some other drug is it. This is the main reason for overdose in America, the majority of the people that use drugs are not always sure on what really is in it.
