  • I think this was a very thought provoking post. I am taking another language in school right now and initially thought I was decent. What I found was that I am good at written aspects of the language, but conversational I still struggle on. This language barrier is hard to overcome and I thought your work presented a big social consensus.

    Foster commented on the post, Brand Addiction

    I think this is a very interesting topic. Brand addiction is something that seems so subtle to many people. What i think is interesting is the amount of thought that goes into the ads to addict people to their product.

    • This is a very hot topic lately. I think the medical side of the arguement may also be beneficial to look at. I wasn’t aware that laws indicated whether the marijuana could be dried or not.

    • Great topic choice! There are different ways to approach the argument, but when we analyze the purpose of a law, its intent is to protect or better society in some way. Make sure when you read arguments and when you are doing research that you keep in mind that the drug should or should not be legalized based on a social good standpoint. A very good book to read on this subject is Chasing the Scream (http://chasingthescream.com/) This book more focuses on all narcotics in general, but it is very powerful and completely changed my view on drug legalization. There us a lot of research out there on Marina and how it affects the brain. I would recommend going to ncbi(https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/). Tons of research to be devoured!

    • Foster, I also think that the legalization of marijuana is a hot topic that have caused a lot of controversy. I have also found that when approaching this topic, you must also take into account the controversy going on between the Republicans and Democrats. Currently, with our new republican president, Donald Trump, we have seen a lot of controversy arise between the Republicans and Democrats. I found on article on Jeff Sessions and his stance on the legalization of marijuana; you should take a lot at it.

    • I think it would be interesting to look into how the tax revenue is utilized in these states. For example, in Colorado I believe they use a lot of the marijuana tax revenue to fund their education system. This means that a lot of money is being dedicated towards drug education and prevention programs.

  • I think this is a good piece that you have written here. But I would like to see different examples used. As Tommy said before, the comparison of buying guns to groceries does not work as well. Guns are items that have serious consequences when used in certain situations. I understand people wanting to protect themselves, but does everyone need…Read More

  • I think this is an interesting article that you have written here, but I have a few problems with it. You talk a lot about how Trump is going to change everything, and how the past leaders of our country haven’t done much for immigration. I just wanna ask, ‘if Trump builds the wall, what’s to still stop people from trying to get over?’ Also you…Read More
