I take tha ffirmative, you don't. Make the first.


1. Marijuana causes health problems.
- Marijuana can lead to cancer or heart attack. In fact, smoke from marijuana has more agents that cause cancer than tobacco smoke.
- Marijuana damages brain cells and lung cells and often leads to infertility in men.
- Marijuana is considered by experts to be a "gateway drug" because it often leads to more dangerous drugs such as speed and cocaine.
2. We should illegalize things that cause health problems (and that cons outweigh pros)
There haven't been enough large-scale studies (clinical trials) showing that the benefits of the whole plant outweigh its risks in the patients it's meant to treat. To be approved, medicines need to have well-defined and measurable ingredients that are consistent from one dose (such as a pill or injection) to the next.
3. Therefore, marijuana should remain illegal, for now. (More studies will be done, either approving or not)
Debate Round No. 1


Prove your claims with nongovernment links, or keep your laws off of my body. Marijuana is used to treat medical condittions.

In the plain words that can be found outside the following writing used to describe a basic principle. A state is better to address marijuana governing by focus of legal principle alone. saying clearly is illegal to use marijuana as a weapon to intentional inflict harm, or discomfort. As this point by debate and precedent may established a future finding to be applied with alcohol, tobacco, and medication for human befitted by constitutional legislation as well.

The single greatest detriment to an individual or a family unit concerning marijuana use, is law enforcement.

Explaining a Constitutional Right against a Constitutional wrong in a clear separation.

Canis The best argument for why marijuana should not be legal is based on United States Constitutional law, and not the State enforcing of one governing use. Marijuana cannot become legal due to the legal precedent already set in pace. Constitutional order dictates it is legal, and must be proven as a crime before it is to be enforced as illegal. This process means a universal way to dictate a wrong must takes place to dictate by law a written right. Admission to a type use simply express clearly a legal wrong in need of basic separation. This one event isn"t the demonstration to a lack of representation of any freedom of religion by Constitutional loss of self-value. As there is always a risk to criminal wrong which can be attributed to all separation of knowledge a consumer should argue judicial separation as a liberty in pursuit of happiness.

Simply said a law cannot impose a restriction on a higher protection designed in even of natural use. A rock is not made legal by reason a person harms another by throwing it at people. The Constitutional target of law is the harm and its extent a rock leveeing a hand, or trap can create.

A freedom of religion in this matter can be described as a use in regard to personal liberty replacing loss of punishment overseeing self-value. An Independent state can be described were safety is required as all who may at some point, by ingestion, or appreciation of limited quality, consume, use, or appreciate an organic plant which can be used as rope, flower, tobacco, or tea. There are reasons to uphold many forms of legal governing to insure the public general welfare.

It is illegal to use marijuana as a weapon, and yet it may be proven that the restriction of a governing an impartial separation is the greater crime.

what canis meant was that the cons of legalising it outweigh the pros. Main pro is THAT helps people in severe pain, main con is that IT IS addictive.
