A Solution to the Drug Crisis in America

GMA 460L - Senior Seminar Research Lab

The current drug laws in America are outdated. There are some illicit substances that have great medical potential. Some of these drugs that have medical potential could help to assist the current opioid crisis in America. Other European nations have already implemented more modern Laws to help treat drug addicts and reduce overall substance use. Policymakers in the U.S. must observe other nation’s laws and examine which laws worked and those that did not. Illicit drugs will always make their way into America so laws must be put in place that would help to decriminalize some medical beneficial drugs which in turn will help to fight the opioid crisis. And reduce overall substance use and abuse.
