How Does Decriminalization and Legalization Remedy Addiction?

Posted on June 8, 2019 in Uncategorized

Given that a lot of states are working toward decriminalizing drugs, it’s imperative to understand how that would impact addiction. In the past, the country had a strict, punitive stance on drug use. People who were caught with drugs on their person would face jail or prison time depending on the amount.

This had the effect of flooding the prison system and often punishing people who have an addiction to drugs. The ideology driving this system was that people who did drugs were criminals and needed punishment. Over the years, people are beginning to realize that those who do drugs and face addiction suffer from a disease, not a moral shortcoming.

Given that ideology shift, policy makers have started to see drug addiction as a matter of public health, not criminal activity. To treat it as a public health concern, policy makers need to decriminalize drug use.

However, decriminalization is not the same as legalization. Decriminalizing drugs means that drug abuse isn’t punishable by law and is handled by counselors, psychologists and social workers instead of law enforcement officers. The distribution and sale of drugs would still be illegal in the states where it was applied.

One of the major benefits of decriminalization is that people who need treatment for drug and alcohol abuse will have an opportunity to receive care instead of punishment. People with a drug addiction need professional help, not prison bars.

The states will also have more money to invest in treatment and education for drug abuse, instead of spending money to house people in prisons and jails.

Some people argue that decriminalizing drugs will have the effect of making people who have a genetic predisposition toward drug abuse more likely to use since there isn’t the worry about punishment.

What is Legalization?

Legalization makes the distribution and sale of drugs legal, which allows corporations to mass produce drugs and gives states permission to tax them. The taxes from drug sales can go toward helping fund drug education or other treatment centers for the people who need it. Another benefit of legalization is that it can help keep drugs away from kids as the regulatory effects help create barriers to them using.

Education also helps with stigma. Stigma often keeps people from getting the help they need for an addiction problem. Often, people receive the idea from a young age that people who have an addiction are bad people in need of punishment.

Mostly, people don’t want to have that label attached to them because of how it implies that they are bad people.

Legalization and decriminalization seem like counter-intuitive ways of dealing with the addiction problem that we have, however, there are real benefits to legalization and decimalization. In a lot of situations, decriminalization has led to legalization.

Addiction is a disease, not a moral shortcoming. The faster that society really comes to terms with that fact, the quicker people can get the help they need. The war on drugs is not a war against bad people, but a fight against a disease.

Homeschooling VS. Preschool Education And Socialization

Posted on June 6, 2019 in Uncategorized

A Legal Expert Speaks to the Dangers of Preschool Issues in Society

The public perception that homeschooling students and socialization are incompatible and is one of the greatest stumbling blocks to homeschooling throughout the country., no doubt. The flawed thinking was dealt with in Part I of our series on homeschool education and socialization.

But, an even greater misperception is growing throughout the U.S. concerning an alleged “necessity” for preschool education and socialization for ALL students.

Why? The reasons asserted are theoretical, some emanating from Bloom’s flawed educational theories. But the ACTUAL results of such thinking are alarming. As you will hear, Legal expert and Home School Legal Defense Association Attorney Scott Woodruff lends his expertise to the subject. Put simply, state mandated preschool education and socialization would be an unmitigated disaster.

Consider the following facts concerning homeschooling vs. preschool education and socialization:

Commenting on the current trend for early preschool education and socialization, Dr. David Elkind, professor of child development at Tufts University, wrote, “When we instruct children in the academic subjects … at too early an age, we miseducate them. We put them at risk for short term stress and long term personality damage. There is no evidence that such early instruction has lasting benefits and considerable evidence that it can do lasting harm”. (David Elkind, Miseducation: Preschoolers at Risk (New York, Kopf, 1987). p. 83, 69.).

In contrast, homeschooling has tended to deny the necessity of more education at the preschool level and emphasizes the family as the primary unit for preschool education and socialization skills and development.

A 2005 Stanford University/University of California research study reported on the subject of preschool education and socialization,” We find that attendance in preschool centers, even for a short periods of time each week, hinders the rate at which young children develop social skills and display the motivation to engage classroom tasks, as reported by their kindergarten teachers.” Preschool education and socialization in such children shows a lack of development of social skills in three specific areas: “children’s externalizing behaviors (such as aggression, bullying, acting up), interpersonal skill (such as sharing and cooperation) and self-control in engaging classroom tasks.

According to a report by the Southwest Policy Institute, again, concerning preschool education and socialization: “Contrary to common belief, early institutional schooling can harm children emotionally, intellectually and socially, and may later lead to greater peer dependency. “Moreover, research indicates that most academic gains shown by normal children schooled early do not last past the second grade.” The need for early schooling for disadvantaged and at-risk children does not justify mandating kindergarten for all children.”

At A&D Net (www.VisionViewpoint.com), we have always opposed programs which suggest or mandate any kind of publicly enforced preschool education and socialization programs. We believe them to be harmful to our children. The broadcast on WorldTalkRadio, with expert Scott Woodruff, should leave you with no doubts about which is better for our children: homeschooling or preschool education and socialization programs (state social engineering).

Take a few minutes to listen to the overwhelming evidence AGAINST any alleged necessity for any publicly enforced preschool education and socialization efforts. Tune into
WorldTalkRadio [http://www.worldtalkradio.com/show.asp?sid=216] and listen to Gateway To Discovery’s archived show with Scott Woodruff.

Unfortunately, much is happening in states such as Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana, and Illinois where lawmakers are attempting to pass laws for the enforcement of preschool education and socialization programs.
