  2. Is drug addiction treated as a crime or as a medical issue in our society?  In your informed opinion, which should it be?  Defend your answer using the resources provided.
  3. In your informed opinion, what do you think is the best course of action to address the drug addiction epidemic in the U.S.?  Should it differ by which drug is being abused?  Should it differ by the population using the drugs?
  4. Drug addiction is increasingly impacting whites, women, and middle/upper class people.  How have these changes impacted the social construction of drug addiction in our society?  In other words, how have these changes impacted the ways in which drug abuse is or is not criminalized and how it is treated by the criminal justice system?
