I will be taking the Pro side; Recreational Marijuana SHOULD be nationally legalized. My opponent will be debating against the legalization of recreational marijuana.

First round is for acceptance.

It's a shame that we might not be able to debate this topic because I was looking forward to taking the unintuitive side and giving it my all.

Some of my arguments include:

Gate-way drug
Bad for health
Increased use will lead to increased medical costs on the government
Increased cost of FDA having to approve every new flavor/variety
Easier chance of it falling into the hands of children
The streets will push higher potency dangerous hybrids to compete
Negative environmental impacts of increased growing i.e. wasted farm space/destroyed soil
