..not necessary. This is a value debate where imminent harm hascto be proven by CON to win the debate. PRO moves that we legalise marijuana.. its a positive stance advocating for a positive change in the status quo. The burden is on CON to prove that this resolution only stands to harm society. As such I vote for PRO! :)
