Drug Decriminalization

Hi everybody, this is my oral presentation for my final paper subject. I will discuss the dilemma surrounding decriminalizing all drugs.

PS: Sorry I've posted my video so late I have had a few complications :/

Hi! You explained well your subject, espicially at the begginning when you talk about the differences of criminilazation and legalization. It was detailed and clear, you gave great examples. I also think that it is not an issue that we talk often so it was interesting to learn more about it. The pros and cons of drugs descrimination was also well explained. Great presentation overall!

Hello! Your subject is very interesting and I am positive you will make a great essay. The two sides of the dilemma were well stated, and your thesis was very clear. As you said, utilitarianism states that one's actions are based on the consequences, with the goal to make the most people happy. Regarding your statement that "it would be considered moral to restrict what they put inside their body if it brings them happiness", I think you could probably focus more on the impact it has on the general population of Canada AND the drug users, since the legalization and decriminalization of drugs affects more than its users only. This dilemma is such as case-to-case situation, I think it would be nice for the reader if you mentioned it in your essay. I hope this makes sense! It is difficult to provide feedback on a five-minute video, so if it doesn't tell me and i'll try to explain better. Thank you!

Hi Filip! I find your subject very intriguing and will certainly make an interesting final paper. We all have some prejudices towards the ongoing dilemma of drugs, but I like that you’ve discussed the pros and cons of it. I also think our government should take a step forward in all areas surrounding the decriminalization of it. As you said, there are still a lot more to learn about this subject, I think you have great information to develop your thesis!
