Recently however the marijuana law law it’s heading in the opposite direction and has been for some years. Since the 1990s, 20 stage, including the District of Columbia, I have approved medical marijuana laws. One
Legalizing medical marijuana also has its downsides. Some believe that the effects are far worse than if marijuana were to remain an illegal substance. A main argument for legalization is that “Drug dealers don’t
Cy,legalizing marijuana would increase the amount of regulation on marijuana, but it may also promote dealers to continue dealing because they can give a cheaper price than what stores may offer. I agree with your claim of how cartels would try to find a way to distribute more harmful substances than marijuana which may make the overall legalization of the drug harmful.
This is interesting and I can understand how both sides of the argument are valid and solid arguments. I personally don’t know if I think legalizing marijuana would be beneficial or not. I think you made solid points though, like how cartels can just turn to other drugs to traffic if marijuana is legalized. Good job and I think you have good support for your argument so far.
Let’s be honest, all the conflicts within our society has its downs and ups. Marijuana yes, should be legal for a million factors, help the researchers understand why it does what it does, how it can be used for future medicine, also believe or not, it would decrease the crimes and the dealing around, once everyone would have public access and it would have a HUGE impact in our economic system.
I am interested with your post, Medical Marijuana Pioneer source, because your point in not legalizing marijuana is your opinion and others with different opinions . One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “A main argument for legalization is that “Drug dealers don’t ask for ID” so by legalizing it, we are able to regulate it & keep marijuana out of the hands of minors. It won’t slow down the trafficking of drugs as well”. I think this is false because maybe in your state you ask for ID but in my city it’s a quick transaction. Another sentence that Stood out to me was “Our youth will still find a way to get marijuana”. This stood out to me because it is true so why not legalize it. Your pst reminded me of something that happened to me. One time we went through all this trouble to get a dutch because we didn’t have ID. Thanks for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because your post is is the opposite to if i was to write a post.
A hot top that has made it’s way into many 21st Century conversations is the topic of marijuana and if it has enough health benefits to make it legal. For over the last 30 years, 25 of the 50 states have
This is very interesting. More and more states are legalizing marijuana for medical use, and I think that is a good thing. There is a lot of information out there that you could use. I’m excited to see where you go with this and what you find out.
Don’t listen to Boomer^…Anyways, I completely agree. Whether you voted for him or not, we have him for four years. This kind of reminds me of a meme on the inter web that has a picture of riots after the election. The people are rioting because Donald Trump was elected and because they believe he’ll promote violence in our country. Ironic…[Read more]
This is an interesting topic. I personally know multiple people that are prescribed adderall. In my experience, they actually have had bad cases of ADHD and the medication has helped them a lot. However, this is not always the case, and doctors are prescribing pills more often than they used to. It all boils down to the science behind it, which should probably be researched more before prescriptions increase.
I am working on a research paper similar to this topic. It’s nice to see that there are others interested in this topic also. My opinion has been influenced and changed by my research. I do believe that it is over-prescribed in the United States, as we are the country with the most children who are diagnosed with ADHD. Do you believe that this is also a medication that is abused by today’s youth?
This is a very interesting subject. There have been many cases of psychiatrists misdiagnosing their patient’s natural childhood energy for ADHD. Adderall is a real and strong drug. It can lead these children down the wrong path. The diagnostic process needs to be improved.
I personally am someone who has Attention Deficit Disorder. I have found that stimulants, such as adderall have helped me a lot. Before I got the prescription, I had to go through testing to confirm that I had ADD. I am pretty sure most doctors do not prescribe without the testing. I think the increase of prescriptions is due to the increased awareness of these disorders and the stimulants themselves.
This is also a huge problem with zoos in this country. Animals that walk thousands of miles are confined to a 20 ft box. Do you think the president will ever make changes to protect wildlife? Or does he have bigger things to worry about?
I completely agree with you. This problem has gotten out of hand. I do think on the other hand, this issue of racism is so prevalent because we feel the need to talk about it. We have a black history month but we don’t have a white history month. Is this a bigger problem than it already is because we keep talking about it? Just a thought
I think that in the future we will be seeing many car companies making electric cars. My dad thinks that electric cars will become popular in about five to ten years. I think that electric cars will save a lot of people on gas. Do you think that car companies will raise the price of electric cars due to people not paying for gas? I also think that in the future we will see driverless cars. Right now, I cannot imagine sitting in the seat and letting the car do the driving. I think that though we will all become accustomed to electric and driverless cars.
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.
