Full resolution:

If marijuana, as a recreational drug, is legalized for those over the age of 18, it should be legalized to grow on a commercial basis only and any domestic growth of it should remain illegal.

First round is up to Con. They can either accept or make a case.

It appears that my opponent's account has been closed. I will wait until the last round to present an argument.

As my opponent has fully forfeited, it's clear he has not fulfilled his BoP. I'm not going to put too much effort into this. Here's a brief argument in favor of legalizing marijuana for domestic growth if it is already legal for commercial growth:

The jury is still out on exactly how safe or dangerous marijuana is. We do conclusively know two things, though:

1. Tobacco use has been proven to cause cancer.

2. Tobacco is legal for domestic growth.

So, unless marijuana is proven to be more dangerous than cancer, it is inconsistent to make its domestic growth illegal. The end.

Vote Con.

I agree whole heartedly not only that but legalizing weed for recreational use for those 18 and over would also bring our Economy up. The distributors don't like the Idea of taxing the product but at the end of the day they still have their money in their pockets
