    The link between drug use and crime is not a new one. For more than twenty years, both the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Institute of Justice have funded many studies to try to better understand the connection. One such study was done in Baltimore on heroin users. This study found high rates of criminality among users during periods of active drug use, and much lower rates during periods of nonuse (Ball et al. 1983, pp.119-142). A large number of people who abuse drugs come into contact with the criminal justice system when they are sent to jail or to other correctional fac

    SOCI 270 I argue that the war on drugs causes harm on many fronts such as racial injustice, denied access to education housing and benefits and wasted tax payers dollars. The war on drugs has been a war we have been losing for almost a century and continues to this day. This war has caused violent crimes that ravages our neighborhoods.
