Respond to the following:

Based on this week's course material discuss the correlation between alcohol and illicit drug use and violence and crime. What role does addiction play? What factors other than ingestion of alcohol and illicit drugs contribute to violence and crime from the prevalence of illicit drugs? Based on evidence is substance abuse prevention and treatment a more effective approach than the law enforcement response i.e. "War on Drugs?" If so, why? If not, why not?

REMEMBER – This is not an opinion-only based assignment, it is a research-based discussion where applying course material to support your points is required. Make sure all arguments for each part include references to course materials and credible sources to support your opinions. If you include only personal opinions and anecdotes in lieu of research-based material this will result in a point loss as they cannot and will not be graded.
