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.

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.

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!

Medical marijuana legalization is one of the hot topics in politics in recent years. With more states making the substance legal, awareness of legalization issues has grown significantly. The problem with the
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.
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 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.

This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
