Addiction and the Law

I, Byshera, talk about what addiction is and how it affects the brain. I also talked about whether or not an addict is responsible for their actions and should be tried in court.

I think that addiction affects the brain and can be responsible for some actions. I like your enthusiasm in your topic. I also like your questions and your background information. I wonder if you think that families should have the right to force the people abusing drugs into rehab?

Very interesting topic. Drug abuse is a very controversial topic, especially when you include the fact that there's neurological problems that stem from the first time drug use. Personally, I think that there should be immediate rehab to a person who had been on drugs at the time or something. The dealer should probably be the one who is jailed.
