The United States has declared “War” on many things over the years including poverty and crime. Is the use of the word “war” an appropriate term to use when attempting to curb or reduce social problems in a society such as poverty and drug use?

Question E:The United States has declared “War” on many things over the years including poverty and crime. Is the use of the word “war” an appropriate term to use when attempting to curb or reduce social problems in a society such as poverty and drug use?Question F:A lot of inmates incarcerated in American’s jails and prisons are detained because of drug and alcohol related crimes. Most of these inmates receive little or no substance abuse treatment while incarcerated and after serving their sentences are released back into society expected to be “model citizens” to never use drugs again, to be great parents and hold stable jobs. Is this realistic and if not, what should be done?Question G:Many workplaces have a zero tolerance drug abuse policy which means if you are caught using illegal drugs, you will be immediately fired. Some would consider these businesses attempting to control personal behavior outside of the workplace. Should businesses have the right to do this? If an employee (excluding occupations such as truck drivers, medical professionals, teachers, etc.) can successfully do her/his job and use recreational drugs in non- work related times, should it matter to the business?Question H:What Explanations Can You Think of to Explain the Significant Increase in Female Incarceration?Data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics revealed that among 300,000 prisoners released in 1993, 67.5 percent were rearrested (i.e., the recidivism rate) within three years. Among those rearrested, 46.9 percent were reconvicted for a new crime, and 51.8 percent were back in prison for a new sentence or for a technical violation of their release. What does this tell us about our prison system? Also, the number of U.S. women incarcerated since 1999 has increased by 75 percent. What explanations can you think of to explain the significant increase in female incarceration?
