Marijuana should be legalized because it has many benefits.

Marijuana is "the devils lettuce." it slows heart rate, raises blood pressure, and the inhallation of the fertilizers causes cancer

First off I want to say that you both make terrible arguments.
Next, I would like to point out how well Colorado is doing since it has legalized marijuana.
Colorado is benefiting greatly from taxing marijuana and is using the money for better schools and other city benefits.
Also, marijuana is not actually bad for you, all it does is speed up your heart rate which in some cases could be a good thing.
I think that marijuana should be legalized.

Reasons for voting decision: Overall, this was a rather terrible debate, in my opinion. The only vote I can give is on conduct as neither side had convincing arguments, neither used sources, and both used atrocious spelling and grammar. To help decide a winner, I give the conduct point to Con due to an ad hominem attack by Pro in the second round.
