Thank you pro for issuing this debate! I look forward to your arguments.



In this debate it will be my opponents job to show that energy drinks should all be banned, while my job will be to argue that not all energy drinks should be banned.

I'll give my opponent one more round to present his case, which will have to show that all energy drinks should necessarily be banned, BOP lies with him.


If he FF's again he has lost this debate.



regardless of what happens this round, I'll be presenting my case in the final round as well as potential rebuttals for his case.

It's pretty clear that my opponent has failed to debate here, and that I have won. For the sake of being a good sport I'll list a simple argument which will go unrefuted and will in turn cause me to win this debate.




R1: All energy drinks should be banned!

This isn't an argument, there is no reasoning behind it. It's simply a sentence. It doesn't even resemble an argument closely so we will disregard it. Which puts my opponent at literally 0. For everything.


C1: Coffee and Tea

Coffee and Tea can be defined as stimulants, there are many health benefits if you drink them in moderation. Banning these would have major repercussion on the economy[1]

My opponent has completely failed to contribute to this debate,

Vote CON.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro bad one hell of an opening argument in R1 that I almost stopped there and voted for him. But I decided to she how con would flail and pathetically try to refute it. Then something happened. I found myself liking cons reasons. It was weird.
