Since my opponent has FF I will not put too much effort into this round, in fear that he will FF all the other rounds.




All recreational drugs should not be legalized.


With legal heroin the increase in addiction will spike, having it readily avaliable will turn the whole nation into a bunch of druggies. this is bad because with increase in addiction we see a rise in other crime and accidents. For example much more DUI will occur with All drugs being legal. Many marriages will also be affected by this with the increase of drug dependancy.

People will overdose much more with drug legality because the price of street drugs would dramatically decrease. So we'd have drug addicts buying drugs for 1/5 of the price.

Unemployment and Welfare will go through the roof. Many people will become too drug dependant to hold a stable job. Or marriage.

This are the reasons I believe all drugs should not be legalized.

I'd like to point out that Pro has FF'd 2 of his rounds so far and will only briefly add on to my previous argument.


One comparison that can be made to legalized drugs and the effects they have is Smoking and Alcohol. The death ratio of smokers is about 600,000 people per year alone. That is a lot of people. Drugs like Ecstasy, heroin and metamphetamine dramatical affect your health in a negative way. We'd have women abusing drugs while pregnant which will cause many more mental retardations and physical deformations.


I extend all my previous arguments.

Denny, use commas. It's help when people are reading, make it look neater and be more grammatically correct.

Reasons for voting decision: Denny, use commas next time. It looks neater, makes it easier to read and also is more grammatically correct. Con was the only one to provide arguments so arguments and conduct goes to him. However he failed to quote a source, so sources are shared.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's absence of any arguments give Con the points for arguments. However, Con made a few grammar mistakes, so S&G goes to Pro. Also, I don't like Con's profile picture, so conduct goes to Pro.
