Challenges I am foreseeing myself being faced with have is making sure there is an equal balance between both sides. Since this is an issue paper I have to make sure I express both sides with equal points to leave the interpretation up to my reader and not have points that are swayed or biased. Since starting my research I have already learned a lot about the matter for both sides. There is an abundant amount of information on my topic especially since Colorado has decriminalized the possession of marijuana. Also I have broadened my knowledge about the medicinal uses of marijuana and which states pertain what kind of laws regarding the drug. One of the most interesting things I have learned about my topic so far is how little people actually know about marijuana in the long term effects it has on a person. Also I learned how much an influence comparing marijuana to other drugs can be when someone makes their opinion in regards to having marijuana legalized. I donít believe I have any lingering questions about this assignment. Iím actually looking forward to how this one is going to turn out and hope to do very well on it. Iíve never been able to choose my own research topic freely for an issue with no restrictions so Iím actually happy to work on it. You most likely could have put in a couple more questions for this online discussion. It made me happy when I saw how many questions there was because it makes it a lot easier to fill up the word count with the more questions you provide us with. Itís almost like a challenge for us to see just how much of these discussions we are able to get through using a lot of fluff words to keep that word count going up until we reach the end. Iíd say since I had to go back and add a couple more sentences where I could, you probably could have helped us out with one more question in order for us to reach that word count with total ease.
