For those of you who are unfamiliar, 420 is a number commonly associated with Marijuana. So, this April 20th, lots of articles were published about Marijuana. One interesting article stems from the city paper in a conservative Ohio town known as Dayton. On april 15th, the Dayton City Paper published they’re latest debate forum topic: “Should Marijuana Be Legalized in Ohio?” On the left side of the article, they have a length argument from a staffer arguing for the legalization of marijuana. The interesting part is the right side of the article. The entire right page is left blank, with only a small caption.
“On behalf of the Dayton City Paper staff, we apologize, but we were unable to locate a debate writer who was able to submit a view opposed to the legalization of marijuana in Ohio at this time.”
The argument for legalization is quite powerful too. Reporter Marianne Stanley writes: “The bottom line is marijuana should never have been illegal at all.” She continues to list the improper motivations behind the illegalization of marijuana, claiming that it is rooted in racism, corporate greed, and the alcohol companies.
