The Law of Man
We live in a society today based around laws our government have issued its citizens to
abide by and follow respectively. Many of the laws these governments pass restrict people under
the age of twenty-one to engage in drinking alcohol and entering night clubs. Our government
expects men and women at the age of eighteen to join the military, risking their lives for our nation.
Yet when it calls for drinking any beverage with alcohol, the law calls these people “minors” and
underage at the age of eighteen to want a drink. Our nations eighteen-year-old can use military
weapons and kill in battle overseas but legally can't buy

within two years. Before this law was passed, each state varied on their drinking age from 18-21 years old. The national drinking age became a national issue when the founder of MADD, (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) Cathy Lightner, claimed that 18-20 year old drinkers were causing many auto accidents. The statistics that she used, however, were inaccurate and misleading. For instance, the statistics used to show the number of 18-20 year olds in alcohol-related accidents, included people who were riding with parents or other adults that were drinking and driving. The media then used these misleading statistics and excessively covered this issue. This caused many to join MADD in their efforts

rates increased significantly, this was unprecedented. Arrests for drunkenness and disorferly conduct increased by 41%, theft and burglaries increased by 9% and homicides increased by 13%. Due to alcohol not being regulated by the government anymore and the law enforcement had failed, there was a temptation for bootleggers, rumrunners and moonshiners to mix chemicals with their produce to increase the volume. Contaminated alcohol, as a result, claimed 50,000 deaths and also caused blindness, organ damage, paralysis and etc. At the end of prohibition, there were more alcoholics than at the start of prohibition hence prohibition was entirely inefficient.

increase of illegal alcohol production, speakeasies, as well as the rise of gangs making a fortune off of its illegal sales. There was very little public support and local law enforcement was easily bribed to not enforce the prohibition. In 1933 the 21st amendment was passed which repealed the 18th bringing an end the Prohibition era and what soon came to be known as the ‘noble experiment.’
Prohibition promoted the rapid growth of organized crime by creating a demand for the illegal alcohol, which would then sell for 700% mark ups in some cases. Prohibition cost the federal government $11 billion in lost tax revenue as well as $300 million just to enforce (Lerner). Only a very small amount of

In 1920, the eighteenth amendment came into effect, which prohibited the use and transportation of all forms of alcohol in the United States. What followed was one of the worst outbreaks of rampant and organized crime this country has ever seen. In a scene similar to that in the 1920's, there is now talk of placing a ban on almost all firearms owned in the United States. This ban was already put into effect over a year and a half ago in Australia, and the results are unsettling, to say the least. Already armed robberies in Australia have risen by a dramatic forty four percent. Another unsettling similarity is how both countries have very loyal supporters who were willing to break the law to

In today’s society, families across the nation are constantly having kids and watching them grow up into young adults, which includes dealing with the everyday challenges of a teenage life. However, growing up in this generation when it comes to teen lifestyle is significantly different than in the past, and one these major differences is alcohol. In the year of 1984, the social culture of high schools and even universities would change dramatically. A new law passed through congress and was further approved, which raised the drinking age to twenty one. As a teen living in the 1980’s, this would be a very significant rule change and would affect lives and lifestyle choices, some more than

decisions the user or abuser must make.Teaching children to drink responsibly when they are young must be a priority. People need to stop pretending that just because kids should not drink, that they dont. Kids drink. In every town, in every state, kids drink. So instead of showing kids videos of malfunctioning livers, the law should be made so that kids learn not to abuse alcohol, and can enjoy it responsibly. Lowering the drinking age may not be the complete answer, but considering that thousands of teens lose their lives each year to some sort of alcohol-related cause, its worth a shot.Austin, James.

Legal Assessment- Alcohol and Violence By: Hatem, A and Ziad
The topic of law reform is beyond just the definition of changing the law, however it is the process in which the law is modified and shaped over time to better reflect the changing social and cultural values that we deem are important. The law cannot stay the same, as the primary function of the legal system is to respond to the changing social values and hence why law reform is still relevant to our society. The overall importance of law reform can be perceived with the aim of enhancing justice and fairness through the introduction of new legislations. The topic of Alcohol and violence has been taking seriously by the NSW

Like fruits and vegetables we eat, marijuana comes from the earth. Many Americans have tried marijuana at least once in their lifetime. Many of whom are unlikely thought of as having tried it. Whether illegal or legal, people do what they want. Marijuana should be legal everywhere because it creates jobs, reduces crime rates, is less harmful than alcohol and tobacco, and, most importantly, can be used medically. Sit back, grab a joint – if you are in a legal state – and let me explain why legalizing Mary Jane (marijuana) should be legal.

Finally, children feel that they have no freedom, so they will try to find some secret entertainment places. They may do something bad such as taking drugs or drinking alcohol. The government should understand the nature of young people, who are curious about things around them. Instead of using iron rules, the government should motivate them to do good things. For example, the government should support teenagers to spend their free time doing their favorite activities, sports or arts. Thus, if the government wants to issue a new law, which involves everyone in the society, they should consider it more.

At checkpoints, multiple law enforcement officers funnel all traffic into a controlled area and perform brief interviews (10 - 30 seconds) with drivers to determine if they are impaired by alcohol. If a driver shows the evidence of drinking alcohol, the police can run a more thorough screening, including using alcohol interlocks (Low-Staffing Sobriety Checkpoints). Every drunk driver can be detected when they pass though DUI checkpoints and as a result, the possibility of drunk drivers being arrested would be much higher. A study conducted by

The legislature of the united states puts numerous laws into effect to protect its citizens and keep the country running. The Uniform Drinking Age Act, put into effect by President Reagan stated that on July 17, 1984 all states had to adopt 21 as the legal drinking age within five years; and by 1988, all states had to set 21 as the minimum drinking age.

Because of this, victim blaming is prevalent at many schools and is often stated as the reason why a person was sexually assaulted. Although victim blaming does not occur at every school, the most common causes and roots are found at any school where sexual assault takes place.
The number one factor that most people associate with sexual assault in college is alcohol. It has been reported that at least 50% of sexual assaults in college are associated with alcohol (Abbey, 2002).

well as socially. Another common belief is that if marijuana is legalized, it can be possessed the wrong people, children for example. This cannot be more inaccurate. Whether marijuana is legal or not, if anyone under the age of 21 wants to buy drugs, they will. A law is not going to prohibit them. Even though it is wrong, it is still going to happen. If anything, legalizing marijuana can lower the rate of anyone under the age of 21 to have possession of marijuana. This is because if legalized, marijuana can be monitored more effectively. Lastly, another belief is that there may be more traffic accidents and deaths will increase when marijuana is legalized. Again, alcohol seems to be one of

In conclusion, the federal government should make it a law that all school districts randomly drug test their students. Drug testing will deter students from using drug and also give teens a reason to resist to peer pressure when offered drugs or alcohol. Drug testing also lets adults and parents intervene early on their kids’ drug habit to get them the help and treatment they need before their teens become dependent on drugs and develop the long-term effects of drugs

Let’s start with a definition of a “responsible person”. This definition is based on information from the Federal Gun Control Act of 1968. This person must be law-abiding, with no felony record. Also, the must not be mentally ill, must not abuse alcohol or drugs, must not have renounced U.S. citizenship, must be in the U.S. legally, and must not have been dishonorably discharged from the military. If a person meets these basic requirements, it shows that they possess what it takes to be responsible enough to own a gun.
