Essay Topic: Drugs, Thugs, and Other Things Were Taught to Fear
You have viewed Gabriel Sayeghs Tedx Talks, Drugs, Thugs, and Other Things Were Taught to Fear. Although some things have changed in the past 6 years since this video was created, such as, more states have legalized the recreational use of marijuana and the heroin epidemic, much of the video is still relevant today. There are several key points I want you to respond to and expound on in your essay.
Gabriel talks about his own path to drug use and progression, things that were common to his community, and the risks of treatment. In your essay, discuss the drugs issues that plague your own community; what drugs pose the greatest problems for the citizens and why you believe that. Do you believe that most addiction can be traced back to trauma and abuse, as Gabriel indicates? Is there truth to this view, why or why not?
Gabriel gives a brief history on the War on Drugs and discusses mass incarceration and the racial disparities that plague this country. He lays out several approaches that address mass incarceration and the disproportionate rates of arrest and incarceration of people of color for drug use. Which of these approaches do you believe are realistic and could make positive change? What policies, treatment or approaches do you believe can be put in place or changed in order to address drug use in this country?
