For my public speaking class in college, I have to give a 6-8 minute persuasive speech, and I have decided to do mine on legalizing marijuana. I need to have three main topics in the speech. So far I'm thinking on using 1. The cost of the war on drugs (I've heard $12 billion) 2. A few of the common myths about marijuana. 3. ? Any ideas on other main topics? Maybe I shouldn't even use the ones I have. Also, what order do you think I should do these in? I'm also looking for some good research. Most of the stuff I have found on the web does not list their sources very well. So basically I have an idea about what I want to do, but would love some input from you guys...what do you think?
