What is a criminological issue that is affecting the state of Ohio right now? For example, gang violence, juvenile delinquency, drugs, law officer misconduct.
Search for anecdotal information about your paper topic. In this case, you are introducing the topic (criminological issue) of your paper by discussing timely news stories about it. The news stories do not have to cover the topic comprehensively. They can serve as examples of the themes that you will address in your paper.
Search the newspaper to find articles about the issue affecting Ohio. As a last resort, use news stories drawn from alternative weekly periodicals. You are also welcome to consult magazine and social media content, provided that it is news-related.
Also look for news stories in your local African American newspaper. You can identify this publication by searching the National Newspaper Publishers Association website:
NNPA | Black Press of America. Click on the About the NNPA tab, then look under Current Members in the drop-down menu. You are welcome to find TV and radio stories posted by members of the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters:
NABOB l National Association of Black Broadcasters You can also review the information found in the member media outlets of the National Association of Hispanic Publications: https://nahp.org

It’s going to be marijuana.”

In February 2020, the Pennsylvania Senate Law & Justice Committee held the first public hearing on the legalization of adult-use cannabis in the commonwealth chaired by Senator Mike Regan (R-Cumberland/York). Committee members heard from lawmakers, law enforcement officials, and medical marijuana industry representatives in a hearing intended “to help lawmakers get a better understanding of the marijuana trade in Pennsylvania and how laws surrounding it are being enforced.”
Committee Panel members were provided an opportunity to comment and question the panelists. At approximately the 1:23:15 mark in the video, Senator Brewster states,
“In reading some of your terminology, I just find it interesting that you don’t like the word marijuana and when I see that I think, I don’t know how it is in other states but marijuana is going to be the word in Pennsylvania for a long time coming. Changing the word doesn’t change the concerns. [Cannabis] may sound like technically speaking but we can call it grass, we can call it weed, whatever you want to call it. It’s going to be marijuana.”
1.) After viewing Senator Brewster’s comment, publish a brief written response (no longer than 250 words) in a word document to his comment that the word marijuana is just the word in Pennsylvania and should not be changed.
2.) Go to the Pennsylvania Legislative web page,
Identify what counties Senator Brewster represents.
Search for Pennsylvania House Bill No. 2050 Session of 2021. As part of the bill’s short title, the first clause states it is “An Act providing for the regulation __________________________;”
Fill in the blank: The bill provides regulation for what subject?

Please feel free to move the structure of the paper around for better flow, and please expand parts that I have written.

Due to work constrictions I haven’t sat down to write this but I have researched quite a bit and provided my outline and thoughts. Please refrain from addressing the migrant workers issue in Qatar as I have consciously chosen not to address it nor the LGBTQ issues, despite them being important topics they are not ones I wish to address in this particular research except perhaps briefly but pls refrain from making it a prime point. Also please refrain from defining random terms in the beginning of the introduction as key terms. Please refrain from using degrading language if your personal biases/opinions are negative towards Qatar.
