With teenage marijuana use on the rise, it’s become more important than ever to study the way pot can affect the developing adolescent brain. A study published in a 2011 issue of Psychopharmacology tested a group of 181 adolescents between the ages of 16 and 20 on their learning and memory skills. Out of this group, cannabis users scored lower on cognitive tests than alcohol users or non-drug users. The younger the teens were when they started to use marijuana, the more severely their learning and memory were affected.https://luxury.rehabs.com/marijuana-rehab/effects-on-the-brain/
It's my contention based on rational reasoning and good evidence that we are not being(and have not been) told the truth about vaccines in modern western medicine (USA/Europe +developed countries). Pharmaceuticals in conjunction with government agencies and politicians have been disingenuous and have obscured the full truth in order to preserve an ideological stance on vaccines and to protect big business interests. They have sold us a myth through clever marketing , fear , media releases and a non-scientific , biased approach to the actual evidence. Professionals who have spoken out about vaccines have been made an example of in order to strike fear into others to keep the truth at bay (eg Dr Andrew Wakefield 1998-2004 UK MMR research).
(CNN)Judges on the UK Court of Appeal once again ruled against 23-month-old Alfie Evans' family.Wednesday's ruling rejected new arguments intended to overturn a decision by the High Court on Tuesday that prevented the terminally ill toddler from leaving Britain for medical treatment, said Roger Kiska, a lawyer with Christian Legal Center and part of the legal team representing Alfie's parents."We have the right to appeal to the Supreme Court and the European Court," Kiska told CNN. "We could seek new medical evidence showing that his condition is improving." Kiska will be discussing future steps with Alfie's parents, Tom Evans and Kate James, who remained in Liverpool at Alfie's hospital bedside.https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2018/04/25/health/alfie-evans-appeal-bn/index.html
This is a vague way to phrase the question, but I did this intentionally. I am aware that some people may wish to clarify that some would whilst others shouldn't, as well as the fact that some people believe in decriminalisation or other forms of liberalisation instead of total legalisation. Psychedelics such as LSD, mescaline, DMT, and mushrooms have played a large part in western culture for decades now, and the research on them is still in its infancy compared to with other drugs. As a substance they are, themselves, quite fascinating - the legality of them is also, hence, a rather intriguing topic. In several countries across several cultures (such as the Egyptians, for example) psychedelics were used typically reserved for religious and spiritual experiences, often talking to gods. Old inhabitants of Mexico have been known to use DMT for this exact purpose, as well. This is not an uncommon phenomenon, but the western political rejection of them is strong.
Consider the needs of every student (physical, emotional), and determine whether or not PE should be a required activity for every student through their middle school, and high school years. Be sure to support your statement with facts of why or why not.
Today, In society we see all sorts of people vaping and smoking in society. For all different reasons. Some say, One is better than the other.They both have their affects and known chemicals. Is it the chemicals and toxins that may make the other one better, It may be. Studies say for ones who vape you will get popcorn lung. This originated from when workers developed wheezing and coughing at popcorn factories. Just like the factory there is a chemical inside vape juice. This is known as diacetyl. The reason People think Vaping is not bad, is because they got rid of this harmful chemical inside vape juice. Now lets discuss cigarettes. The most common drug inside a cigarette is nicotine. Also known to be in vaping juices. The only difference is you can lower or higher the amount of nicotine while vaping.There is 4,000 total chemicals in a cigarette, 43 of those chemicals are known to cause cancer. Due to the arrival of vaping there is only 9 total chemicals known in vape juice. I currently don`t know if any cause cancer except for diacetyl and nicotine. (Say something if you do)Due to my studies I Know neither are healthy. I think vaping is healthier.
In Britain, Cancer Research is being accused of fat-shaming over its campaign 'obesity is the biggest cause of cancer'. The campaign calls for a ban on junk food advertising and encourages people to eat better diets. So, is Cancer Research fat-shaming? Or is it just calling for health?

I personally think it is. If you look at the comparison of U.S. medicine prices to those of foreign countries, U.S. prices can sometimes be four or more times higher than their alien counterparts. But the sad thing is that it makes sense- to develop a new drug and pass all the tests and regulations, it costs (on average) about $1,000,000,000. But whatever. At least I can get points out of it.
