    • Hi Alex, I agree with your idea that vaccines should be tested. Many vaccines have side effects that could be lethal to some people. We should be more careful about when to give vaccines to the public. https://www.historyofvaccines.org/content/articles/vaccine-side-effects-and-adverse-events

    • Hi Alex,
      I agree with the fact that people need to be cautious even if the governme nt gives us the permission to go outside. One of the main ways of us being cautious is by washing our hands, so I thought this might interest you. https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/when-how-handwashing.html
      Hope to read more from you.

    • Hi alex! I 100% agree with what you have said. I think that what you are saying is a real issue because of the unknown factor that is coming with this new virus. The thing that worries people the most is how the virus mght be able to mutate in the future causing it to kill more and more people without us tracking it. This is a very interesting topic you have chosen and I can’t wait to see what might happen within the next couple of months!

      Thanks.

    • Alex, I really enjoyed reading your writing. I liked how you added both the pros and cons of medical marijuana. I agreed with everything said, and think that you presented your information very well. Heres a source I think you might enjoy reading! https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/marijuana-medicine

    • Dear Alex:

      I am perplexed with its publication since it gives its point of view of the subject in a glorifying way but my opinion is that in my point of view marijuana should not be legalized since people instead of using it medicinally, will use it as a drug recreational and I tell you this because I have seen people who are asking for money to eat but in reality they are only going to buy more and more drugs until they make a load for society. I do not say this just to say it since it actually happened to me, when I was eating hamburgers in LA once a lady came to my table and asked me for money for food but when I gave it to her I told her to buy the food in that same restaurant and she said yes but when I released her in money she ran away and I could see through the windows of the restaurant as he gave money to a person and instead gave him a cigar and that’s why I oppose the legalization of marijuana because it only ruins people.

    • Dear Alex:

      I'm amazed by your poem, "Should Marijuana be Legalized" because I learned that marijuana can be medicinal. I am from Mexico and I live in California. One thing I liked was that you say that marijuana is medicinal as for rheumatism. Something I think is that, on the one hand, marijuana should not be legalized because even children smoke it and I think that is not right. Numas should legalize it as in some parts and for those who really need them but only for that. That is why I think it is a good thing for the elderly as the sick less for the children. Thanks for your writing. I hope you keep posting more park and I keep seeing them and keep commenting. what are your favorite things.

    • Alex, I appreciated you writing this paper on this controversiall topic. Personally I am in favor of legalizing marijuana on all fronts, it is after all just a plant right? Thank you for sharing both the negative and positives of the drug. Another article that I find helpful when referring to the legalization of marijuana is https://disa.com/map-of-marijuana-legality-by-state.

    • I think this is a great post that weighs both sides and helps the reader think about his or her own viewpoint.

    • I did the same topic and this was all vary close to what I found in my research. I was also very surprised to find out that the few seconds of putting someone to death costs more than keeping them in prison their entire life. I was also surprised to find all of the cases people have been put to death and than found innocent. Interesting topic it was good to see both sides in yours.
