Are illict drugs the same meaning as drugs that are illegal? Basically, are illegal drugs the same as illict drugs? Thanks in advance!
What are your thoughts on a federalism type case for the Con? Basically saying that the federal gov. is a bad actor and the states should be legalizing instead (which there is some merit that this is happening in the status quo). So we just agree with everything the Aff says, but say their method of doing what they say is worse.
Wouldn't the state level regulations you mentioned at around 1:14:15 (on the slide titled "Odds & Ends") be a neg argument?
this is so helpful thanks so much, your work helps small teams, especially mine and allows us to do better in these topics!
drugs don't do permanent damage to your brain. Just like Harry Anslinger lied when he said marijuana causes black men to sleep with white women and forget their place when he made them illegal, this is another lie. One less racist. The government has been lying about health harms, exaggerating them, and outright lying about them. Racism made them illegal. Lying about health harms keeps them illegal when racism isn't acceptable. However, it is like saying 2+ 2 = 5. It will always be a law entirely motivated by racial prejudice. Doctors never gave a shit.
Would writing a decriminalization case on the con be considered a counterplan?
Here’s a possible answer for the Drug War Argument: Legalizing drugs would cripple drug cartels income through drug related dealings, so they would have to find income through other means. This would most likely come from human / sex trafficking, meaning that legalizing drugs would actually increase human /drug trafficking. just a thought.
for the politican argument presented around 1:10, doesnt the should in the resolution imply fiat?
Forgive a drug pusher today for destroying your loved one and he will gladly destroy your entire family tomorrow….
you’re a very helpful guy brother, i’m
a junior in highschool at NJ. i was JV state champ last year and this is pretty awesome.
some of the verbage makes the video hard to show my middle schoolers but good work and thank you. The whole lack of plan/cp debate in pf definitely irks me here
For aff, I feel like the alcohol prohibition is unnecessary. I think all you have to say is that right now there are problems such as drug cartels and overdosing. And then all you have to say is that legalization will help not hurt.
Whats the link to the prezi?
