All store should stop selling drugs.
Debate Rounds (5)
I accept. Also, what kind of drugs are you reffering to? Illegal drugs I assume, but stores do not sell illegal drugs, they sell legal ones like medicine. Stores may sell ingridients for illegal drugs, but those ingridients are usually things like cough syrup and other essential medicines.
When you say audited, I assume you mean addicted. Yes, why it is true people could get addicted to drugs, that has nothing to do with why stores should selling drugs. Also, you refer to beer as a drug, when in fact beer is not a drug, it is a substance. Yes, there may be some corrupt stores selling illegal drugs, but you can't really help that unless you close the store down entirely, which would have far more consequences than benefits. I wish I had more to argue against, but my opponent has given me no solid facts as of why drugs should stop being sold in stores. I honestly can't tell if this is a troll debate, or pro has no idea what they are talking about.
Actually, I do know what you have gone through. When I was in elementary to high school my father had a drinking problem as well, so don't tell me to shut up. Also personal experiences are irrelevant in debates, so you talking about your father has no value in this debate. And, no, I do not want all the drug stores to close down. Do you know how many sick people there would be if all the pharmacies shut down? Also, you say you only want drug stores to be shut down because of your father and his alchohol problem, why not just shut down all of the liqour stores? I could see you wanting that, but not pharmacies. I think that you are a little confused on what you want. One last thing, pharmacies are very convinient. I can't tell you how many times I've been out of town and need to get some sort of thing that gas stations either just don't have, or the gas stations have them over priced. Let's say you're out of town and need to get some milk, but the nearest grocery store is five miles outside of town. As you're going through town, you spot a Wal-Greens. Boom, job done. Instead of having to go five miles away, you can go half a mile, and be at a Wal-Greens. Now, imagine if all of them were shut down. You would have to drive five miles outside of town, which would, one, be wasting your time, and two, be wating gas. The more gas you use, the worse our atmosphere get's. So really, if you shut down all of the pharmacies, in some cases you would be hurting mother earth. Back to you pro.
Well now, you are saying that stores should stop others from taking eachothers medicine. Does that mean that you no longer think that stores should stop selling drugs? Because if it does mean that, then I won. And you say that they should stop people from taking eachothers drugs, well, the stores can't control that. They tell you not to do it, but it's not like stores have cameras in everyones house. Someone could have perscription pain meds and then they have a friend over. The friend over decides to take some of the pain meds, even thought they are not his. The drug stores cannot control what goes on in peoples houses, so they will never be able to stop people from taking each others meds.
Well, I have no further arguments, so now it is voting time!

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Con. Pro telling Con to "shut up" was highly inappropriate, thus Pro forfeits his conduct points and they are awarded to Con. S&G - Con. Pro had several spelling and grammar errors throughout the debate, Con had no such errors. Thus, Con wins these points. Arguments - Con. Pro failed to provide any substantial arguments that would have served to affirm the resolution. Instead, he replied on emotional appeal, ill conduct, and unproven assumptions related to what beer was and what stores sell. On Con's side, there were several challenges presented to Pro that were dropped by Pro. Due to Pro failing to maintain his BOP, and Con presenting challenges that remained standing, Con wins arguments. Sources - Tie. Neither utilized sources in this debate.
