Abstract

Through the years, marijuana has been prescribed at increasing rates for a variety of medical reasons, including pain relief. However, the use of marijuana in the United States remains controversial. Marijuana in the United States is classified as a Class I controlled substance making it illegal under federal law. (Drugs in this category are deemed to have high abuse potential, no accepted medical use and lack acceptable safety measures). Despite this fact, approximately half of all states in the Unites States have approved the prescribing of marijuana for medical purposes.

Within this context, students participants from the Criminal Justice program and the Political Science - Capitol Hill Gang will be challenged to debate the issues regarding the legalization of marijuana.

Through the years, marijuana has been prescribed at increasing rates for a variety of medical reasons, including pain relief. However, the use of marijuana in the United States remains controversial. Marijuana in the United States is classified as a Class I controlled substance making it illegal under federal law. (Drugs in this category are deemed to have high abuse potential, no accepted medical use and lack acceptable safety measures). Despite this fact, approximately half of all states in the Unites States have approved the prescribing of marijuana for medical purposes.

Within this context, students participants from the Criminal Justice program and the Political Science - Capitol Hill Gang will be challenged to debate the issues regarding the legalization of marijuana.
