I will save the beef of my arguments for when I have loured someone into debating me. Until then I will make a simple argument that puts the decision in my favor.

Everything should be legal until a case for criminalization has been proven. I contend that there are almost no arguments for drugs to be illegal and a multiplicity of quality arguments for the legalization of drugs. Any legitimate arguments are not very significant and can be outweighed on magnitude by the benefits of legalization.

Note: I HATE statistic/study battles bring me your logic.

Well. I guess I'll have to do this one again.

Have a great break everyone.

Go read my other debate on ethics. It's pretty interesting. (And vote for me while you're there.)

This is unfortunate that my opponent has not responded. I will soon post another argument in favor of the legalization of drugs. I am holding off for now because it seems that many people are already debating this topic. I would rather not add another to the plethora.

It is a shame that I made this debate 4 rounds when we didn't get to debate even 1. I was hoping that it would be an intense discussion between my opponent and myself. I guess the only thing I have to say is vote Pro and watch for my other debates. (Vote for me there too, if you can.)

He didn't have to accept the challenge.

Plus, I started another debate with almost the same opening statement and it's going perfectly well.

The reason I didn't type up a long case was specifically because I knew there was a large chance of getting someone like this who doesn't speak. I had plenty of material ready, I was just waiting for someone who was willing to speak. There was four rounds. We were going to have plenty of time to debate.

It's probably because you have absolutely no substance and nothing to debate in your opening argument. You start the topic and then want someone else to begin the debate. THEN, you also tell people to not bring statistics and study battles? Ya, that sounds like a debate going in the right direction.
