I think there will be many challenges that I face with this paper. Since I didn't do too hot on my last paper I really need to do a great job on this one. I need to put more time into it than I have with the others combined. I feel like it's going to be hard for me to find sources that aren't biased. Since my topic is the legalization of marijuana, there are going to be a lot of websites that have biased information. I'm going to come across a lot of websites where angry potheads are going to be preaching as to why it should be legal everywhere. I don't feel like I will have any trouble finding information, just finding information where the author isn't trying to push you one way. I'm also trying to figure out which kind of paragraph structure I am going to do. I can either switch it off from paragraph to paragraph or split it into two big sections. I think I am going to split it into two big sections because I feel like it will be easier to just go ahead and write all the information for one side down, then focus on the other side instead of switching off each paragraph. From the research I have done so far, I've gathered some unbiased information about each topic. I haven't really found any surprising information so far, however I know I will by the end of the paper. I was looking at a source the other day that was talking about marijuana being the same thing as medicine because of what it does to an individual after they consume it. Then of course I will have an opposing source stating why it shouldn't be looked at as a medicine and maybe some harmful effects it can have on the body. I don't really have any questions about the assignment. I just have to use my time wisely and make sure the paper is perfect by its due date. I thought there were plenty of questions in this online discussion. It's good to put a lot of questions though because there is a 350 word minimum we have to abide by.
