Weed should be alowed in medical cases because weeed is not that harmful to the patient and if you are gonna put patients to sleep you might as well give them confort and put them at ease.

First there are other drugs you can use to ease pain that is just as effective as weed. Also it is highly addictive and could make Americans a bunch a junkie dumb arses. This would result in terrorists reallizing we are retards and bombing the US, which would screw up everything in the world if terrorists took over. America is the best nation ever and with a change in power to the terrorists the world would be plumeted into destruction.

How about instead of just randomly spewing bits and pieces, you debaters actually show some evidence that can help voters decide who is the better debater in this debate. Maybe I'm following school rules too much. However, you should at least cite some sources to back up your information.

For instance, one of you said that Marijuana is addicting; however, you should really use some evidence to back it up. A great site to source would be https://www.msu.edu....

There is a side effect.... It impairs judgment. Ever tried to drive while under the influence. It is like drinking and driving.

"First there are other drugs you can use to ease pain that is just as effective as weed."

Not true, only marijuana has no withdrawal symptoms, and over 75% of patients who've used marijuana reported that it was more effective than any other medicine they've taken.

"Also it is highly addictive and could make Americans a bunch a junkie dumb asses."

Absolutely false, marijuana is not physically addictive and even drugs such as nicotine and alcohol are far more addictive than marijuana.

"This would result in terrorists reallizing we are retards and bombing the US, which would screw up everything in the world if terrorists took over."

This is a ridiculous statement and I shouldn't even take the time to explain why.

"America is the best nation ever and with a change in power to the terrorists the world would be plumeted into destruction."

America is not the best nation ever, The U.S. is ranked 13 on the H.D.I. list, which means 12 countries have a higher standard of living than America. Again, the paranoia of terrorists destroying us because of marijuana is beyond ridiculous.

To A_Fellow_Debator,
If there were other pain killers as strong as marijuana, they would have the same amount of negative affects. There is no such drug that can ease pain yet have absolutely no hallucination affects.
