I'm going to pull a Ron Paul here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PtNc-IFJPU0 Structure: R1) Acceptance, Analysis, Structure and Rules R2) Opening arguments R3) Rebuttals and Conclusions Analysis: Let's keep this to only to the philosophical basis for the role of government in people's lives -not about the impact of drug use, why drugs are bad, etc. That drug use is harmful to the body is not in dispute.
