Debate Round No. 1

Now let me define what "IT" is. (Marijuana)

My opponent thinks marijuana tastes nasty. I beg to differ. So would the 4 million daily marijuana users, the 6.1 million "heavy" users, and finally the 16.7 million regular users according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. http://www.samhsa.gov...

Now regarding taste, I will simply debunk my opponents cheap centrist of a rebuttal with the notion of flavoring. Yes that's right, different buds have different taste, so to generalize all nugs of having the same taste (let alone a bad one..) would be flat out illogical. On top of that, smokers will often use different flavors of blunts and rolling papers to give them a personal flavor of their own choosing.

Flavors of several blunts and rolling papers include: Bubble Gum, Candy Apple, Cotton Candy, Grape, Peach and Sweet Cherry.

Flavors of several rolling papers include: Banana, Blueberry, Candy Cane, Cinnamon, Pineapple, MILK CHOCOLATE, strawberry, root beer, marshmallow and yes even freaking MAPLE SYRUP.

*In short the flavor of marijuana varies, and not only that can be controlled to taste delicious to any individuals liking based on their particular taste. So to deem marijuana as a whole of quote "tasting nasty" would be an unfair and illogical accusation.*

Sense con has not responded to any of my arguments, I will restate my claims.

1.*Different buds have different flavors*
- With over 400 known different strains of marijuana, taste will in fact vary.
Sources: http://www.kgbanswers.com...

2.*The taste of marijuana can be controlled in favor of the user*
- Due to the vast variation of flavored blunts, papers and good ol' swisher sweets, virtually anyone can enjoy a hit of their personal favorite of flavors.

3.*Con's accusation is illogical*
- "*In short the flavor of marijuana varies, and not only that can be controlled to taste delicious to any individuals liking based on their particular taste. So to deem marijuana as a whole of quote "tasting nasty" would be an unfair and illogical accusation.*"

yes. as much as bud has hundreds of different flavors as my opponent said, it still may not taste like what they say. so it could matter of fact. taste.nasty.

-- My opponent has a feeling of skepticism towards the wraps and blunts in question to perform their duties to provide a delightful taste to said "toker". Which is a very valid point, however regarding this debate, that argument is flawed. For when wraps or blunts fail, that's where drops come in. Drops are a flavoring additive that provides an enhancement of taste to smokers if they desire a better overall taste from their green.

Although on the site they label it "tobacco flavoring drops", it is rather obvious what they are really advertising for..
ItsNasty

Con

yes, drops may add more of the real flavor to the taste, but we are not debating whether it tastes bad BECAUSE of drops. we are debating about whether it tastes bad by itself. I have only tasted one type of flavor without drops, and it tasted bad in my opinion, could drops change my mind? probably, but it can taste bad without drops also.

Alright then con, forget the drops. I think my opponent grossly misunderstood my point..

Regardless, Con made the accusation after his first time that marijuana tasted nasty AS A WHOLE. So for him to retract his argument and play the "opinion game" is a bit cowardly, and a tad pathetic. Cheap semantics won't win this debate, and If con continues to use that BS argument this will no longer be a real debate but a simple misconception. I implore con to have the guts to stand by his original argument and not weasel out of this "debate".

Lets review...
*MY ARGUMENTS*

1.*Different buds have different flavors*

Cons rebuttal: NONE

2.*The taste of marijuana can be controlled in favor of the user*
- Due to the vast variation of flavored blunts, papers and good ol' swisher sweets, virtually anyone can enjoy a hit of their personal favorite of flavors.

Cons rebuttal: Irrelevance..

3.*Con's accusation is illogical*
- "*In short the flavor of marijuana varies, and not only that can be controlled to taste delicious to any individuals liking based on their particular taste. So to deem marijuana as a whole of quote "tasting nasty" would be an unfair and illogical accusation.*"

Cons rebuttal: NONE

*CONS ARGUMENT*
1.Its opinionated.

My rebuttal: Not only is that a BS argument, its a flat out lie with regards to your previous accusation previous to this debate.

AND. I. QUOTE. " Hey, Erick thinks bud tastes nasty!" You would reply "It does!"
You went on and on repeatedly saying that marijuana tastes nasty. Now we finally reach a debate about this on DDO and you cowardly retract your claim and hide behind the opinion defense. Much like a creationist hiding behind the "you can't 100% disprove gods existence" excuse, you use cheap semantics and ridiculous circular reasoning behind your argument. Con has failed to negate the resolution, marijuana does not taste NOT taste nasty.

my opponent is using only the fact that there is many flavors to marijuana. i thank my opponent for dropping the flavored drops argument.

now, for my last arguments:

1. people usually dont smoke ONLY for the taste, they get it for the feeling. Some people might enjoy the taste but that is not why they do it. Marijuana can be used only to get high or to relax since it has effects of a depressant. http://www.acde.org...

2. Marijuana's taste could be good, but since i only did it once i have a right to say it tastes nasty, and also everyone's taste buds are different, some people like strawberry and some people like grape. yes it is opinionated argument and i dont have much evidence as to why i think it didnt taste as good as i would've thought to. is "it tastes nasty" a over exaggerated phrase, maybe. But i did not like the taste.

My opponent is saying that i had behind my opinionated answers. my opponent has argued over again on how there are so many flavors to marijuana. As there are many flavors, i was talking about that one kind, yes my phrase was exaggerated but this doesnt hide the fact that my opponent is only using one argument as his proof.

vote con.
