Hello! Hello! I stumbled here while researching for an upcoming debate in my Biology class. On Monday, my group and I will take the "Hot Seat" for the Legalization of Marijuana. What would your stance be? I am very welcome to pro and con ideas-the pros I'd like to include in our presentation, and I have some time to research a rebuttal sp? for the cons. So...Smoking or Non?
umm, this might wanna go in the pub
but my opinion is that it might help on one side because the government could then legally control the influx of it into the states, on the con side then more people will start smoking it
possibly legal with restrictions limiting it to certain age groups... everyones going to at least try anyway, you know? imo doin stuff can be a part of growing up. Talk to any older ppl. Anyway back on subject, it could present quite a problem if it were to be legalized, and as much as we all want it to be legal, i dont think it would be good to legalize it due to the fact that growing and selling it could present a problem.
I'm new around here so I'll repost there.. Thanks for the reply!
Ahhh!!! I'm new here and I'm not sure if this is in "The Pub" or not!!
Wanna go Double Dutch?

Legalization of Marijuana? You're in Gator country right? I thought it was legal within 100 mile radius of the swamp.... :beer: :lol:
Grow only enough for home owner consumption ( 10 plants ) and have no more than 3 grams on your person while in public.
yeah, it could be cool. But Im trying to stop........so I probably wouldnt be able to enjoy it by the time it got legalized. oh well. I say it should be........but whatever :smokin:
i wouldnt smoke it myself but i do think it should be legal and heres why: awhile ago in my history class the teacher comented on the c[color=black]orrelation[/color] between prohibition and the legalization of drugs. he pointed out that when prohibition was repealed crime was [color=black]drastically [/color]reduced because people were no longer making alchohol illegaly. the same thing would happen if drugs were legalized. plus its a win-win situation. the people buying the pot win because the price of it would drop [color=black]drastically due to the fact that dealers would have a much easier time getting it into the country. the government wins because they would get another source of tax revenue.the snack food industry would win. even the entertainment industry would win. think about it. a reality tv show where they put ten potheads in a house together and watch them try to survive. survivor compton.:lol: (i know the name needs work. suggestions welcome) [/color] [color=black]in all seriousness though, there are several other reasons i think pot should be legal:[/color] [color=black][/color] [color=black]1) ive never heard of anyone dying from pot[/color] [color=black]2) ive never heard of anyone getting into a car accident while on pot[/color] [color=black][/color][color=black]3) ive never heard of anyone raping or being raped on pot[/color] (notice that these are all things that HAVE happened with alchohol) [color=black]4) think of all the great songs that have come about as a direct result of pot(or any drug for that matter)[/color] [color=black]:smokin: :feedback: [/color]
I'm way cooler than n0e (who isn't though?)
