Legalization of drugs
Decriminalization or legalization of drugs is a hot button topic. Several states have loosened criminal regulations surrounding the drug cannabis.
For your assignment, find information on the legalization/decriminalization of cannabis in the US. Also research other countries who have lessened the criminal penalties associated with drug use (for example – Portugal, Argentina, the Netherlands).
Discuss the results that the United States and other countries have had after legalization/decriminalization was implemented. Make sure to discuss the pros and cons associated with this subject.
How is the criminal justice system adjusting to these changing laws in the US?
Assignments must be between 300-400 words, in a standard 12 pt font. If citations are used, APA style should be implemented.
