Raaya – Alzheimers

This topic is relevant to us because a lot of people are getting Alzheimer’s, and more people want to find a cure. With all the miracles of modern medicines, longevity and life expectancy is increasing, so if you get alzheimer’s you won’t be able to enjoy and ‘live’ those extra years that medicine has gotten us. It affects teenagers because they should be aware of these popular diseases even though they don’t happen to them, however it may affect them in the future. Alzheimer’s is a disease that occurs in people ages 60 and above, it is when you loose your memory and your brain starts to decay. This eventually leads to death. The biggest problem associated with this disease is that there is no cure, and more and more people are getting it. This is a very sad disease that ruins not only the person who gets it’s life, but also the people who love them. People everyday are workingvery hard to find a cure for alzheimer’s. I used to think that alzheimer’s was just when your memory was bad, now I know that it is a very serious matter, and it is the decay of your brain

Julian – Legalization of Marijuana

Legalization of Marijuana is a rising problem in the world. There is a large debate due to it’s ability to go either way. This is important for us to know because the choice would heavily affect us and even our older siblings. The debate right now is a 50-50 debate because the legalize it side is saying that marijuana is a pain killer and it can be used for a wide variety of economics.  However if it was legalized it would affect kids our age highly because they would be allowed to advertise it publicly and thus it could easily get into the hands of teenagers. One of the solutions to this problem that they have inputed was only for legal uses. So as I said again either decision has it’s ups and downs. So finally as I said it is a complete 50-50 decision.marijun So as you can see from this photo it that many different parts of and the whole united states itself is almost 50-50.
