Take A Stand Paper
After watching the “The War on Drugs: Winners and Losers” video, and reading Chemical Dependency: A Systems Approach, take a stand on legalization, decriminalization, or status quo regarding how drug use is treated in our society.
Write a 1,400-word paper that responds to the following:
What is the issue? What is your stance on the issue? Can this stance be applied universally, or would you employ different stances depending on the substance?
Defend your position with at least three peer-reviewed articles in addition to the text and video.
Include a discussion about who may be affected by the approach you would select, and how you would advocate for that population.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
Note: For this paper, it is not acceptable to use political websites that are not based on sound research. You must use scholarly works that have taken a critical thinking approach versus an unsupported emotional one.
