Substance Abuse & Addiction Forum

Forum Assignment for the Week: 300 Words minimum For this week's Forum, respond to the following:   The forum question for our consideration this week focuses on the legalization and decriminalization of drugs, including marijuana, in our society. We first looked at the arguments for and against this topic in Chapter 1 and there is a nice Point/Counterpoint in your assigned textbook readings this week as well.  Based on those readings, the readings from this week, and your reflections on your own beliefs, what is your perspective on the question of legalization of drugs, including marijuana?  

Remember that all posts are graded for substance and thoughtful consideration of the forum topic. 

***Your post must also end with a "Question to the Class" – something related to the topic that you found thought-provoking and about which you'd like to know more and have further dialog. ***
