Example text

One need not wonder why. Blacks were generally even more fearsome of their own neighborhoods as were others residing in or near the inner city or interstitial areas {Sourcebook - 1987, p. 141). In a 1988 Gallup Poll, a sample of the US population was asked if drug-related crime was a serious problem, somewhat of a problem, or not a problem at all in their neighborhood. Ten percent replied that it was a serious problem and 34 percent said that it was somewhat of a problem. Nineteen percent of the blacks saw this as a serious problem in their neighborhood, but only 10 percent of the whites did so.

Persons who believed their health problems to be related to substance use blamed alcohol (32 percent) and tobacco (33 percent) in the National Institute for Drug Abuse's 1985 National Household Survey (NIDA, 1989). There is little doubt that samples of high school seniors have in one way or another been convinced that there is considerable risk in substance abuse. By 1988 they disapproved of drug use, alcohol use, and cigarette smoking, disapproval having risen by as much as 30 percentage points for some categories of use since 1977 (Sourcebook - 1988, p.

Some would see this as evidence that the problem was being effectively addressed, but others wonder why the space is taken up with drug offenders rather than with violent offenders. While 61 percent of the US population in 1986 believed that stopping the importation of drugs from other countries was the most effective approach to the control of drugs and 68 percent in 1985 agreed that the US government should spend as much money as necessary to stop the flow of drugs into this country, 83 percent believed that drug abuse will never be stopped because a large number of Americans will continue to want drugs and be willing to pay lots of money for them (Sourcebook - 1988, p.
