Debate Round No. 1

Pro

If pot was legalized it can be taxed and regulated, keeping as many people from doing it. Second with it legal many business could sell and make profit and boost the economy with 38% of Americans admitting to having done it. With it being legal it would take away from street dealers and cutting down on a hefty majority of drug crimes.

Sure. Let the person who does the hit bear full responsibility of its use. Defund all government treatment centers to treat them. If something happens let them pay their own way or see if the hospital will give them a freebie.

I agree with legalizing pot. That was the best point ever. "Nope your wrong". I would love to see a bunch of high headed Cheeto eaters roaming the streets.

Kids will get it easy legal or not but at least when legal we have better way to trace down where it is coming from and to stop the illegal distribution to minors

Some points i do agree with, but how far will we go with this until we legalize other substances?

You raise valid points Tnewman but one of the reasons why people, young people mainly, smoke it, is to help them relax or, as in some cases, because they don't have anything better to do and simply like the thrill of breaking a rule. Now I'm not saying we should legalize it, but not much of anything would happen because of it.

two points FYI
1. When anything is made illegal, the control of it is put in the hands of the criminal.
2. The greatest detriment to a person or the family unit concerning marijuana use, is law enforcement.
Have a nice day

Reasons for voting decision: Pro provided an argument while Con *tried* to refute them. However Pro did not "give a damn" about Con's "refute", therefore better conduct goes to Con.
