The Drug Abuse Control and the Regulations


Drug abuse has been associated with the increased cases of insecurity where many

people are said to feel insecure while in their homes due to the many drug related

burglaries. Therefore, drug abuse problems needs to be addressed faster due to the

immense problems it has been causing in the society as compared to the air pollution. In

addition, the control of the problem has been of greater concerns due to its impacts to theyoung generation as youths are getting involved in the drug abuse at early stages.

Considering my experience I have had concerning the many young generation that

has been getting involved in the drug abuse at early age, the problem of drug abuse

need to be addressed. Addressing the drug abuse problem can be essential in

preparing the young generation from getting involved in the drug abuse. There have

been many incidences of violence taking place on the streets openly creating a lot of

fear while the police seem to be overwhelmed. According to Luke & Chia-Chi,

(2012), there have been many incidences when the police are out-gunned by the

gangs retaining the illegal drugs on the streets. Thus, drug abuse has been an area of

great interest to me as it has been an issue of great concerns to the society. In my

career as a cop, I am planning to fight hard against the issue of drug abuse by

ensuring the drug abusers are persecuted the moment they are arrested. I strongly

believe that my efforts will be of great benefits in dealing with this problem. There

are limitations on the resources available for obtaining an urgent solution to the

continuing problem of drug abuse in society (Okamoto, et al. 2014).

      The market for the illegal drugs has been one of the booming business and the

most violent markets in the world. Thus, the high profits associated with the drug deals have been the major aspect that is fueling the increasing amounts of the illegal

drugs in the streets. The drug dealers involve the use of gang members with the overall

picture of both the international and national level. Gangs are preferred as they can

ensure that the drugs reach the streets, they are a major market for the drug dealers and

without the gangs, and drugs cannot reach the streets successfully (Ishaak de Vries, &van der Wolf, 2014). Thus, the gang members are the people responsible for the heavysales on the streets and highly populated centers. Most of the drug traffickers are

foreigners and are said to be taking the drugs to the end users on the streets and getting

high returns from the drug deals (Okamoto, et al. 2014). The market for the illegal drugs has been one of the booming business and themost violent markets in the world. Thus, the high profits associated with the drug deals have been the major aspect that is fueling the increasing amounts of the illegal drugs in the streets.

Most of the drug traffickers are foreigners and are said to be taking the drugs to the end users on the streets and getting high returns from the drug deals (Okamoto, et al. 2014). This has been making the drugenforcement very critical while fighting against the drug abuse.   

Drugs and enforcement of the law

The implementation of the regulations controlling the drug abuse in the society

has been failing in its implementation. According to Okamoto, et al. (2014), many

drug traffickers are failing to be persecuted the moment they are arrested thus the

problem has been persisting. My goal in my career is to ensure that such criminals

are persecuted in order to ensure the drug abuse is brought to an end. My work

experience is essential in assisting me in the process of dealing with the problem for

I strongly believe I can be in a position to track down the distribution network that

has been distributing the drugs. The drug abuse has been undermining the economic

well-being, and health and social responsibilities of the people abusing the drugs. Luke &Chia-Chi, (2012), assert that, the arresting of the drugs has been facing difficulties due the lack evidence for persecuting the lawbreakers and absence of complaints from the victims.

      The abuse of drugs has increased the issues of violence in the city and people are

living in fear of being attacked as issues of insecurity are increasing. Drug abuse has been challenging the efforts of the parents of guiding their children due to the increased abuse of the illegal drugs among the children. According to Okamoto, et al. (2014), the police executives are said to be aware of drug abuse-taking place and they have been unable to control the situation as the drug criminals have very strong networks. The police have been attempting to arrest the criminals but their efforts are challenged at the time of persecution. This is because the persecutors are unable to persecute the criminals as drug dealers as they often lack sufficient evidence for persecuting the criminals (Luke & Chia-Chi, 2012). In addition, the distribution channels continue expanding as the police are bribed thus letting the problem persist as the drug business has many profits. This has been challenging the drug abuse control, as ending the

problem has been hard due to the challenging nature of the drug business.      

  The largest population of the people abusing the drugs is the youth where experts

have estimated that around 200,000 youth are using and selling illegal drugs (Okamoto,

et al. 2014). The youths are coming from different geographical regions aiming at

distributing the drugs on the streets. According to Ishaak, de Vries, & van der Wolf,

(2014), the youths have been the most vulnerable to the drug abuse for some several

reasons, which can include domestic violence, poverty, school failure and unemployment.


Conclusion

 The major drivers to the abuse of the drugs can be traced to the easy access of the

drugs and the high returns associated with the drug business. Okamoto, et al. (2014)

asserts that, the police executives are usually aware of the abuse of drugs taking place but they have been ignoring that fact as they engage themselves in corruption activities like receiving money to let the drug leaders free instead of arresting them. The operations of the informants and the under covers are considered essential in enforcing policies for fighting against the drug abuse as research has shown that the police are entering into corrupt deals with the drug dealers such as becoming part of the distribution system of the drugs (Luke & Chia-Chi, 2012).
