Three Important Areas to Focus on When Waging the War Against Drugs

There are some three important areas that require great attention, when waging the war against drugs. If the war against drugs is to be won, these three areas have to be dealt with properly. In other words, these three are the main areas where effort should be focused, when waging the war against drugs. Firstly, […]

Important Milestones in the War Against Drugs

It is difficult to understand whether we are making progress in the war against drugs or not. Sometimes, looking at the figures, one gets discouraged: as drug usage levels seem to be going up, with new ‘designer’ drugs being introduced into the market every other day. Clearly, this is not a war where progress can […]

Taking the War Against Drugs to Colleges

If the war against drugs is to be won, then it has to be taken to colleges. This is because many of the people who have fallen victim to drug use did so while at college. The college environment is one that is very conducive to the sale and use of illegal drugs. You find, […]

Proper Parenting and the War Against Drugs

One of the key pillars in the war against drugs is that of proper parenting. If all parents and guardians took their role seriously, and if all parents and guardians adopted proper parenting practices, we wouldn’t have a drugs problem in the society. To appreciate the truth behind these statements, you have to take a […]

Why the War Against Illegal Drugs is Pretty Much Unwinnable

Last week, while reading a newspaper article on the war against illegal drugs, I suddenly realized that it is an unwinnable war. The war against illegal drugs is pretty much unwinnable because the people who are involved in the trafficking and distribution of illegal drugs (the top kingpins) are very powerful and, apparently, very well […]

Why Some Nations Have Opted to Legalize Certain Drugs

More and more nations are opting to legalize certain drugs. One drug that is increasingly being legalized is Marijuana. The debate on whether or not to legalize such drugs is always an emotive one. But when all is said and done, the people who argue in favor of legalization tend to end up winning the […]

What Will it Take for the War Against Drugs to be Won?

Any honest person will tell you that the war against illicit drugs is far from being won. It actually seems as if no headway is being made in the fight against drugs. The people who are involved in the drug trade are prospering. Meanwhile, millions of lives around the world are being destroyed. And the […]

What is the Best Use for the Monetary Components in Drug Awards?

As we have seen in previous blog posts, some drug awards happen to have monetary components. These are cases where the winners of a given drug award are given some cash, as part of the award. In some cases, the winners of a drug award may be given a trophy (or some other similar symbol […]

Simple Strategies You Can Use to Make Drug Awards to be More Meaningful

It is easy to get the impression that drug awards are meaningless. Let’s take, for instance, a situation where the awardees are just given cheap trophies or certificates, with no money on top, and in nondescript ceremonies held in nondescript venues. In this situation, it is possible for the awardees to actually feel slighted, by […]

Unique Categories of People Who Should be Considered for Drug Awards

Most of the drug awards schemes that I am aware of focus (almost entirely) on people who are visibly involved in the ‘war against drugs’. This is how we end up with a situation where, in most cases, the drug awards go to the ‘activists’ who run various ‘community organizations’ whose work revolves around the […]
