In a 2-3 page paper students will write an essay outlining a brief history of the “War on Drugs.” In addition, students should reflect whether it is possible to win the war on drugs to include evidence of its successfulness or failures. Finally students should recommend changes to the prosecution of the current “War on Drugs” or alternatives to it; depending on the student’s approach.
A minimum of two references, one being from an outside, non-GU source, are required.
Please be very sensitive to the issues of plagiarism! All of the written work submitted must clearly be your own. Keep in mind transcription of material (copying), followed by parenthetical identification of the source with little or no original thought added does not constitute an adequate essay. You are expected to provide some evidence that at least a significant portion of the each essay is your own reaction to, thought about or evaluation of the subject of the essay, composed in your own words. Agreement, disagreement, examples, etc. are appropriate – as long as evidence of some thoughtful and pertinent independent thought, reaction, or response to the term or question is included.
