    Urban Therapy with Sun #85 Alternatives To The Drug Culture

    in Lifestyle

    It's not like there aren't many better ways to make money but selling drugs seems to generate revenue faster. It's not like there aren't better ways to feel good and confident but drugs seem to get people there faster.


    How do we protect our young people from getting caught up in the life of drug elling and drug abusing?


    Let's get right into this.


    Do you know anyone that had the potential to do something great but chose to sell drugs?


    Have you known anyone that lead an otherwise productive life EXCEPT that they had a little drug habit?


    Have you ever lost a loved one to the drug game?


    Do you think jail sentences for drug activity are given fairly?


    Have you ever tried drugs of any kind?


    What are your feelings about rehabilitation?


    Do you think that it's easy to go straight after making money selling drugs successfully for a number of years?


    Do you think that getting off of drugs is easier than people give it credit for?


    Do you think that the Just say no campaign of the 80's was a good slogan?


    What advice would you give to a young person that was in the beginning stages of selling or using drugs?

    YOUTH CULTURE

    in Social Networking

    Examples of Youth Culture


    The term "youth culture" refers to the ways that teenagers conduct their lives. Youth culture can pertain to interests, styles, behaviors, music, beliefs, vocabulary, clothes, sports and dating. The concept behind youth culture is that adolescents are a subculture with norms, mores, behaviors and values that differ from the main culture of older generations within society.


    Commonly-used Youth Culture Examples


    ·         In the 1960's the wearing of clothes that indicated freedom


    ·         Following of music groups that perform music that speaks to the issues teenagers perceive themselves enduring at the time such as Nirvana in the 1990's and The Beatles in the 1960's


    ·         Hairstyles that exhibit a lack of conformity such as brightly colored hair, spiked hair, shaved heads


    ·         Behavior that is contrary to what is perceived to be accepted and expected by parents such as drinking, smoking, using drugs


    ·         Language usage that is bold in order to set themselves apart such as either excessive cursing or a usage of esoteric “cool” buzz words


    ·         Behaviors such as cutting school or low grade criminal activity in order to assert independence and non-conformity

    Why are people who served time for Crime, still paying the price when freed

    in Music

    I think convicted felons should still have the right to vote because they are still affected by the choices of politicians.Felons are still affected by laws made by politicians. Laws could be made about the court system or anything else that might have an impact on their lives. Since they are still a part of our democratic society, it would be wrong to take away the right to choose the people affecting them.


    If you pay your dues you are like everyone else.


    Yes. If time is served then they have the right. They paid their dues. Just because someone has a felony doesn't make them a bad person, well in some cases it does and they won't get out of prison so they don't count. People make mistakes, you ever heard of wrong place wrong time?


    Some 15 to 20 million people have been arrested on drug charges and subjected to the tender mercies of the criminal justice system in the past two decades. But, thanks to congressional drug warriors, the punishments drug offenders face often extend far beyond the prison walls or the parole officer's office. A number of federal laws ostensibly aimed at reducing drug use block people with drug convictions from gaining access to federal benefits and services. These laws have a disproportionate impact on society's most vulnerable or marginalized members -- the poor, people of color, and women with children -- and in some cases, do not even require that a person actually be convicted of a drug offense to be punished.
