    First of all, you need to narrow that topic down. Here are some ideas for helping you narrow your focus to a topic that can be addressed in a paper:

    So ... what aspect of this topic do you intend to write about? Write up one sentence which states what you intend to prove -- eventually, this will become your thesis statement.

    Then be sure to follow the writing process completely.

    Prewriting: brainstorm, research, plan, outline, thesis statement

    Writing: write first draft by starting with section II of your outline; write introduction after the body of the paper is written; write the conclusion last.

    Polishing: revise, concentrating first on the body of the paper, then the intro, then the concl (revision = making sure ideas are logical and sequential and support your thesis); proofread (spelling, grammar, usage, etc.)

    I agree with narrowing it down. What is the point you intend to make, and support that point with arguments?

    I am having a hard time finding anyone opposing the fact that there is a drug problem among teens. I don't think that there is enough focus on drug programs in the schools today. I think to answer your question I plan on making my point on having more focus on drug prevention in the schools today
