    • 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.

    • You made some solid points in your post. However I think that if adolescents want it that bad, then they will get it no matter how difficult it is for them.

    • 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.

    • It’s interesting to see a different side of the argument. It will be cool to see if you find more positive points than negative on this topic

    • Hey Cy,
      Thanks for your opinion. Seems like a lot of people are stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to this topic.

    • Hello Cy,

      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.

    • Dear, Cy

      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.

    • I completely agree with this in the sense of teens being more interested in marajuana as a whole, due to many factors such as peer pressure

    • Very cool topic. I wonder if all states will eventually legalize marijuana

    • 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.

    • You’re awesome,and totally smart, wish we had more people like you in this world.

    • This is an interesting an idea about a topic that is sure to gain much attention in the upcoming year and yes sam is correct you are awesome

    • 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.

    • Cy,
      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.

    • Hi,

      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.

    • Hello,
      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.
