An Essay Topic on Drugs
It is always a good idea to give an essay topic on drugs a try. Most college students find it to be a little bit offbeat because they usually end up with a topic that would be more appropriate for a foreign language class, and I say that as a native Spanish speaker.
However, if you are determined to write an essay topic on drugs then it is a good idea to make it one that is more in line with the topics that you really want to cover. You can always adjust the subject matter later on if you find the essay topic that you would have chosen to be somewhat lacking. With my Spanish class I tended to focus a lot on Spanish literature and history, but when writing an essay on drugs I would give more of an emphasis on the Mexican drug war and related issues.
For instance, instead of saying something like 'the general state of Mexican society' I would say something like 'in today's Mexico the prison population is the highest it has ever been.
