    Brooklyn,
    This is a very great post although it is a very hard topic to fight. The federal government only has say on what public schools are doing not private schools. In an instance of that happening at Judge the Supreme Court could not do anything to over rule their dress code rules since its a right of the private schools to be allowed to make…Read More

    • Oliver, I find your topic interesting. I guess I would agree with you in the sense that less severe drugs such as weed should be decriminalized. But any of the other class 1+ drugs should not. The way I see it is that if something is going to be legal, then all restrictions should be lifted in less serious cases. The issue with this topic is that there is always going to be different circumstances for each case which will make it hard to place an argument. Overall, I feel that you have written a great post. Here is a link to a website that would lead you to further your support. These are the states that have decriminalized pot. http://norml.org/aboutmarijuana/item/states-that-have-decriminalized

    • Oliver,
      Great post! Your post talks about some interesting topics. I agree with your argument that less harmful drugs such as weed should be decriminalized. I also agree with your ideas about how our congressmen should represent the people’s opinions. I think that in your next post you should talk about how the prohibition of drugs increases violence in the black market because buyers and sellers can’t resolve disputes with courts, lawyers, or arbitration, so they turn to guns instead. I think you should take a look at this article for your next post: http://theweek.com/articles/445005/why-all-drugs-should-legal-yes-even-heroin

    Oliver commented on the post, Zoos aren't cool

    Carter,
    I can not agree more with you!!! Zoos are awful places, the two main reasons is that they capture animals from the wild and throw them in cages for people to view them without going in the wild, and the other reason is their are very annoying kids running around everywhere. Sanctuaries for animals are a much better concept because they…Read More

  • Angela, This is an amazing poem and you really are an artist writing that. I love how deep these words are and how they catch you attention so well. I think it is ironic the poem is about being artistic and you are very artistic.
