  1. Should Cannabis be legalised?

    It also encourages young adults to have sex without any protection. This is the most frequently used illicit drug among youth and people do things they regret when they are under the influence. Also in a recent study there were results that showed that teens that drink or do drugs are more likely to have sex and initiate it at younger ages, and with multiple partners.

  2. Can the British Education System be described as "uninspiring"?

    where 8/10 students stated that they were fed up with school and its teaching methods. However although undoubtedly there are many flaws regarding how imaginative the system is there are also several positives. Firstly once a child takes their GCSEs there is an option at 16 to leave school and take on an apprenticeship instead, allowing students to further their education in a more creative way without damaging their options in the future. Also our syllabus contains creative subjects such as art or physical education allowing those with a more hands on approach to learning to take part in a subject which they are confident with.

    How can this be? It has to do with the endless appeals, additional required procedures, and legal wrangling that drag the process out. It's not unusual for a prisoner to be on death row for 15-20 years. Judges, attorneys, court reporters, clerks, and court facilities all require a substantial investment by the taxpayers. Not only dos this waste money. It seems ridiculous to waste our recourses. Theses endless appeals and required additional procedures clog our court system. All the appeals, motions, hearings, briefs, etc.

  5. Advantages and Disadvantages of the Rise in Corporations

    Nike and Gap have been criticized for their workers in their worldwide sweatshops. The Global Exchange found workers hunch over sewing machines, kept awake by forced intoxicating drugs on 72-hour shifts. Child laborers worked in sub-standard health conditions, receiving pay far below minimum wage in factories that distribute to mainstream clothing retailers. Poor and desperate people work behind the closed doors of sweatshops where verbal, physical and sexual abuse is common.
