Prompt: The Assignment: For your final assignment of the semester, you will get to choose a topic of your choice to write about as long as it is in some way thematically tied to the focus of our class: crime, punishment, and/or guns. Your final paper will be written as a proposal of a solution argumentative paper. This is the most substantial paper of the semester. It will be 12 to 15 pages long and is required to have at least 10 sources, at least three of which must be journals or scholarly articles from databases. The paper will need to be written in proper MLA formatting.br /
br /
Start your paper by creating an introduction that intrigues the reader and focuses him or her to what the rest of the essay will be about. After that, the paper should follow the strategy that we discussed in class for successfully writing a proposal for a solution paper. Begin by defining the problem that you are trying to solve. Explain to the readers why this problem is serious enough to demand attention. Then explain what your solution to this problem is and why it will work. Because your solution may be multi-tiered, each portion of your proposal will need this defense. Furthermore, persuade readers that your proposal is feasible in every sense (in terms of economics, time, morals, etc.).br /
br /
Continue the paper by defending your argument against the reservations that readers may have in the form of counter arguments. To clinch that your proposal will be found to be satisfying by the reader, reject other possible solutions to the problem by explaining their flaws. Finish with a conclusion that meets the requirements of that paragraph. Make sure that throughout your paper that you avoid logical fallacies and follow other standards that we went over earlier in the semester (such as using transitions and properly crediting sources).br /

Your paper is due during our final exam period. Please turn it in between 6:00-7:00 pm on Tuesday, May 13. br /

The Harm by Drugsbr /
Drugs are a problem within the United States since some of their prohibition effects. President Richard Nixon has started a War on Drugs since June 18, 1971, and this has lead to a lot of debate that many Americans feel that it is unfair and is feeding the prison system with more inmates than it intended to have in capacity. Illegal drug trade has done much to increase the potency of drugs. Not only has it done that, but its price soars for those desperate to get their hands on. Drugs are becoming extremely more violent nowadays and drug dealers wage wars with other drug cartels, which it also affects Americas borders with Mexico and how drugs are getting into the United States as well. Some drugs are made legal in the prescription system of the United States government; however, that does not mean if the patient is going to use the drug as prescribed and he or she would rather abuse his or her use of them. Drugs can affect families too. Mentally, physically, financially, and the list goes on when it comes to illegal drugs within families whereas it is uncontrollable. Alcohol is a drug that was once banned or prohibited by the 18th Amendment within the United States Constitution by the Womens Rights Movement in 1920. It was later repealed by the 21st Amendment in 1933 because it was so widely used that it did not bring about a positive outcome in American history with so much crime that even alcohol can be grown in ones own backyard. With all the distracted environmental effects of drugs within all aspects in the country, the solution here is to reduce harm related to drugs and harm caused by drug policies.br /
