- Should Marijuana Be Legalized - 2,941 words

Cocaine use increased in the early 1980s as marijuana use was declining. During the late 1980s, both marijuana and cocaine declined.

- Urban Sprawl - 1,480 words
Urban Sprawl Urban sprawl is not a new phenomenon, and the battle between environmentalists and developers is well-known. But perhaps the issue is not that the land is being utterly stripped of life and replaced by cookie cutter houses or factories, which has been a controversy for decades.

As Michael Ventura says, "America is form opposed to content" (216).
