"Junk is a way of life" is very true if you really think about it. Before I was introduced to any of Burroughs writings, I always had no pity for drug addicts. Honestly, I thought they were pathetic and they did it to themselves so they should suffer the consequences. I now realize that in the beginning, people do have the choice. That much is their fault. But once they are addicted,...

My life's been an up and down rolle...

If I think something is wrong I will usually speak up about it instead of being silent. If you are silent and do not speak up about the use of illegal drugs it m...

Do Drugs Cause Youth Violence? I believe that youth violence in America is somewhat due to the use of drugs, but not entirely. Although drugs are known to educe violent behavior, I do not believe they are the routes of violence among American teens. I think that kids can be violent with the absence of drugs. While under the influence of alcohol, one cannot understand the difference betw...

Should Drugs Be Legalized; My View It seems as if the cry of "legalize drugs!" is heard everywhere. Some argue that legalizing drugs is the way to "win" the drug war. Drug enforcement does place a burden on us. Economic resources are used up that could be used elsewhere. But the consequences of legalizing drugs would make an already large problem out of control. If one examines the arg...
