Pro

Marijuana should be legalized because there is nothing wrong with it. I mean come on you would have to smoke 20 times your body weight for a week before you overdosed and then you would just die of smoke inhalation .

Round 2 Debate/Argument
Round 3 Proof

Con

The format of this debate is quite unorthodox... I just want to clarify if this is what you really meant:
Round 1: Opening Arguments
Round 2: Rebuttals
Round 3: Defend Opening Arguments
Please clarify next round.

Besides that, the main reason I say marijuana should remain illegal is because it is no different from any other drug of abuse. It is a poison that, in the short term, temporarily but severely impairs your judgement and coordination, and in the long term, slowly destroys your brain and immune system (1). In addition, there are no valid medical benefits of marijuana; the term "medical marijuana" was invented as an excuse to make marijuana more accessible to addicts (2).

Yeah. Unfortunately, it looks like my opponent isn't planning on posting an argument this round. Unless he is planning on waiting until the last moment.
