Is It Easy to Obtain Drugs? DRUG ABUSE

The Death Penalty

The United States has been “at war” with the drug abuse since 1971 under the Nixon administration. It does not matter at this point who is in office, the use of drugs continues to increase. The cense throughout the United States stated that “funds were received for drugs over $24 billion in 2013 to $30 billion by the end of 2017.

The Trump Administration seems to be taking over hardline approach to drug use, President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions pushing for strict sentences for any drug related offenses, it could go as fare as the death penalty in some cases. Which depends on the crime committed with the use of drugs or the amount of drugs on hand; as a uncertain youth with a uncertain future and the lack of significant programs within our youth society.

The organization is wondering where drug abuse is most pronounced within the youth society and what areas are most at risk within the political climate. Drug issues are in all 50 states ranging from opioid, meth, prescription and weed. Why don’t we look at where Georgia fall within the 50 states?

IS IT EASY TO OBTAIN DRUGS?

 

We asked 37% of the youth how easy was it to access drugs? to include cigarettes, prescription drugs, marijuana and beer. In 2017/18, We ask which would be easiest to purchase? “Cigarettes remain at the top of the list, with 27 percent of teens saying cigarettes are easier to get than other drugs. Beer closely followed cigarettes as the easiest drug for teens to get. Marijuana is third, with 19 percent of teens reporting that it is easiest to get this year, compared to 22 percent last year. Compared to 2011, slightly more teens this year say prescription drugs are easier to get than other drugs (13 percent in 2012 vs. 10 percent in 2011).

WHAT ROAD WILL

OUR YOUTH TAKE NEXT?
