Marijuana legalization policy
I need help addressing the following critical elements:
In relation to the departmental policy (Marijuana legalization/use), identify the needs of the public and the relevant branch of the criminal justice system, and assess the extent to which the policy currently addresses these needs.
a) Identify specific needs of the public and the relevant branch of the criminal justice system at the center of the departmental policy, justifying your identifications.
b) To what extent does the departmental policy address these specific needs?
Provide specific recommendations to the existing departmental public policy to improve the delivery of criminal justice services, justifying your recommendations, and examining the impact of the recommendations on the public and specific branch of the criminal justice system. Be sure to:
a) Outline the specific aspects of the departmental policy that is targeted for your recommendations, justifying your selections. What specific aspects of the departmental policy need improving and why?
b) What specific recommendations do you have to improve the existing departmental policy?
c) Justify how the recommendations will improve the delivery of criminal justice services. Provide specific examples.
d) How does criminological theory support your recommendations? How do the recommendations support the public's needs? Consider how theory justifies the appropriateness of the recommendations for the departmental policy.
e) What are the potential impacts of the departmental policy recommendations on the public and the relevant branch of the criminal justice system? Provide specific examples. If the potential impacts are negative, how might you alter your recommendations?
f) How does your assessment of the potential impacts inform your departmental policy implementation? For example, how can you capitalize on positive reactions in the implementation of the departmental policy? How might you create buy-in where there is possible conflict?
