In this day on DDO,
Rap battles tend to come and go,
But there's time aplenty to debate
On something that you love or hate.

I write, of course, of Mary Jane,
That herb that loves to ease my pain
And so befuddle up my brain
Regardless of the price or strain.

My opponent shall argue
Against the progress of our nation
I will be a stoner true
Rapping pro for legalization

So come on, squares!
I'm short on time.
Just spit it out
And make it rhyme.
SeventhProfessor

Con

I would also like for pot to be legal
In this great nation of the bald eagle
But I'll try my best to argue my points
That the US should not legalize joint

You are the instigator
Who has the BoP
But I'll also have it
To a certain degree

Now it is time
To start the debate
For my opponent's arguments,
I eagerly await
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Firstly, I would like to thank
The debater who accepted
He went against his own beliefs
When others had rejected

Fist I'll make a couple points
While sparking up a couple joints
Which Seventhprofessor will refute
Proving my arguments moot.

The Gov. sure spends a lot of money
Enforcing laws on Marijuney
Taxpayers pay, against their will
A total over 40 bil.
SeventhProfessor

Con

SeventhProfessor forfeited this round.

This is sh!t.
How could you just go and quit?
*Takes a hit*
Press "accept", and you're supposed to commit.

But wait!
You still have time
To set some things straight.
Make a rhyme
And we'll have us
A decent debate.
SeventhProfessor

Con

Sorry about that
I was busy yesterday
I'll now respond to this
With no more delay

Sure, a lot of money is spent
To stop transaction of weed
But abuse causes problems
So the warnings you should heed

Furthermore,
It can cause financial problems
If you get addicted
Your amount of money will have fallen

Do we really need
More legal addictions on the earth
If we make it legal
The sales will face much growth

As I have shown,
It can cause almost nothing but harm
To the cons of pot,
I hope I've raised some alarm
Debate Round No. 3

I thank you for returning
To this battle of wit and rhyme
On why the reefer that I'm burning
Should be a blessing, not a crime.

"Never give up the Ganja"
Morgan Freeman wisely said. (1.)
You can't refute wise words of wisdom
Straight from Morgan Freeman's head!

You say that sales "Will face growth"
Is that not what we need?
Help the economy and people both
By legalizing weed.

Read this Gallup.com poll (2)
The people all have spoken
Now, let's legalize it, light a bowl,
And we can all get tokin'.

Morgan Freeman?
That better be a joke
That is like saying
Chuck Norris can legalize coke

I apologize
If my phrasing caused confusion
What I meant was
Sales lead to addiction diffusion

It was ranked high
in an online survey?
I guess we should make English
America's official way to communicate [1]

Morgan Freeman, a joke?
I just can't believe my eyes.
You just can't joke about that man!
He's the wisest of the wise!

38% in the USA
Admit to trying Mary Jane
While only 1.4 percent
Regularly take cocaine (1)

And what the f*ck are you trying to say
When you type that "addiction diffuses"
I'm certainly not the only guy
That your wording confuses.

And that ain't some online survey, bro.
It's a f*cking Gallup Poll! (2)
Over 1000 they surveyed
From across the 50 states.

So come one, come all
Those with a bit of hope
Divided, we're short, but together we're tall
Let's legalize recreational dope.

Voters, come and read this
And show how much you know.
In this debate, just who succeeded.
Peace upon y'all, vote for pro.

Morgan Freeman
He's just an actor, not important
For important legal issues
You shouldn't have him represent

Who cares what people say
When referring to cocaine?
This debate's about weed
I cannot follow your thought train!

I apologize
If my wording confused you
I meant that with easier access
Addiction will follow soon

One thousand
Divided by fifty
Do the math, man!
From each state, that's a measly twenty

Who knows
What could happen if we legalize dope?
Recreational heroin, crack?
It's just a slippery slope

I hope you see,
My opponent's validity is non
I destroyed all of his arguments
So please, vote con!

Due to this debate's rather unusual format, I would like to ask any voters to give spelling and grammar points to the person with the better rhymes.

Reasons for voting decision: I'm voting Pro for two reasons. I think he makes the more convincing arguments and I also think that he rhymes better. I noticed a number of instances within round 3-4 where SeventhProfessor simply sounded like he was in a debate. Regards.
