Title:
Case Study: Legalize It All
Authors:
Wilder, Corneshia S.
Abstract:
Currently, there are over 20 states in the United States that made using marijuana legal for medical purposes. With nearly half of the states legalized marijuana, some believe that stronger illegal drugs, such as cocaine and meth, should be legalized. Dan Baum, a writer, wrote an article in Harper’s Magazine that it is time to “legalize it all”. Other do not believe that harder drugs should be legalized. Mark Kleiman, a public policy expert and professor, predicts that alcohol and cocaine addiction will rise if harder drugs become legal. Is it ethically permissible to legalize harder drugs in the United States? In my presentation, I am going to explain the case in detail. It will include information about the stakeholder and how each stakeholder will be affected. I will also explain my viewpoint of the case by using theories and statistics to explain my position in the case.
