Marijuana Prohibition is a Violation of First Amendment Rights Let me ask you something… if you had a choice, what would it be: Marijuana or Martinis? This question appeared in the New York Times on Tuesday, May 12th, 1998. Due to the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 the only legal choice that you and the 18 million other adults who used marijuana last year can make is the martini (Against Drug Prohibition ix). The legal acceptance of alcohol, however, does not exclude it from the category of a

Power Shifts in Intergovernmental Relations: A Result of Fiscal Federalism Fiscal federalism is the result of the states' dependence on the national government for funds. Until 1913, the national government had minimal monetary resources, thus possessing little control over the affairs of the states.

Its time to clean up this mess Famous last words heard from the mouths
“It’s time to clean up this mess.” Famous last words heard from the mouths of many different politicians when talking about the national debt and the budget deficit. Our debt is currently $4.41 trillion and we have a budget deficit of around $300 billion and growing. Our government now estimates that by the year 2002 the debt will be $6.507 Trillion. While our politicians talk of balancing the budget , not one of them has proposed a feasible plan to start paying down the debt. In the early days

Poverty is a lack of goods and services necessary to maintain a minimal adequate standard of living. The definition of the term adequate varies, however, with the general standard of living in a society and with public attitudes toward deprivation. No university accepted definition of basic needs exists because poverty is a relative concept. In poorer countries it means living at the brink of subsistence, while in our country few improvised families confront starvation, although many suffer fro

Euthanasia, or a good death, is an issue that has caused much controversy for the past thirty years. This topic has a legal and illegal side to it. Many people cannot unanimously choose one side or the other. The legal issue, or passive euthanasia, is considered as allowing to die (Gula, 5). It varifies the removal of life-support systems because there is not any moderate hope of restoration. The illegal issue, or active euthanasia, is considered as homicide (Gula, 5).

What is welfare? According to recent polls, most Americans consider this nation’s welfare system “a failure and a disgrace” (LeVert 10). Most people use the word “welfare” to mean income support or public assistance programs designed to help people who are already poor. Although it is geared to poverty-stricken people, families, and children, most people have benefited from government aid or assistance programs, in other words, “welfare.” Poverty in America is a disease for which there is plent
