Thanks for hosting the debate.

Weed, or Marijuana has numerous mental, and physical health problems. Using it should not be allowed in any state.

First, the mental side effects. Studies have shown constant marijuana use stunts growth of the part of your brain responsible for memory. [1] This means that people who use marijuana on a regular basis, have poorer memories. Poor memories inhibit your ability to function in everyday life.
In addition, constant use of marijuana can lead to social anxiety, and dependency on the drug. [2] When you use marijuana regularly, you begin to lose the ability to socialize with people. It can leave you feeling awkward, uncomfortable, and longing for the next time you get to smoke. This creates a psychological addiction, as well as leaving you unprepared for real life.

Second, constant use of marijuana damages the lungs. [1] It is known to cause abnormal coughing, acute chest illnesses, and obstruction of airways. In addition to increasing your risk of lung infection. In other words, smoking is damaging to your health, and as you age, it will obstruct the way you want to live your life.

Weed should be eradicated. It is an invasive plant that destroys things we find useful or enjoyable, and it plays no important positive role in the biosphere. There is a reason why farmers and suburbans spend a lot of money on irrigation and pesticide.
