Pro

Marajuana should be legalized for medicinal purposes.

Con

Marijuana should not be legalized because there is already a rampant drug problem in the US. Legalizing marijuana would make America's drug problem spiral out of control.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

The drug problem that America currently is experiencing is with addictive drugs like heroin and prescription drugs, not marijuana. Marijuana has not caused individuals to act violent. It has only created a financial issue with tax payers. Individuals who get arrested for smoking marijuana take up jail space and provoke wasted money.

Con

Who is to say that marijuana smokers cannot be violent? Marijuana impairs judgement on all levels. While we see the "lovable stoner", who is to say that said person would not pick up a bat and beat someone to death due to their impaired mental state?

Marijuana is known to kill brain cells. With the majority of marijuana smokers in their teens and early 20's, this is a disturbing trend. Young people need to keep their minds sharp. There are far too many students flunking out of school these days, marijuana might be to blame.

Reasons for voting decision: conduct pro ff first screwing things up. Con rebutalled pros argument in round 2, pro dropped the arguments. Con showed that Pros argument on the violence clause was b.s. and rebutalled and pro never made it to round 3 to build on what pro stated regarding violence and the corelation of marijuana.
