Ethics In Criminal Justice

Postby Abhibhava » Wed Dec 07, 2016 7:40 pm

The paradigm of the conflict would consider the decriminalization of marijuana as a good thing. No matter how this fact can result in failure of conventional schemes consolidated in a society. At the heart of the conflict theory there are always “innovative” and “conservatives” players who organize their actions trying to influence the social history. The society is not a static system, but it is a process in continuous transformation, whose movement/dynamism is related to the contradictions that emerge from social reality.

On the contrary, the paradigm of consensus, which is based on legal and moral control of deviant impulses proper of individual action, would consider the decriminalization of marijuana as a negative thing. It would lead to the breakdown of the functional unit on which society is based. The society, in this case, is conceived as a static system, in constant balance(equilibrium). Any event that threatens this balance(made of consolidated norms, values and beliefs) is judged and evaluated negatively(as “deviant”) and therefore to be rejected.
