I made a compilation paper which hopefully puts everything submitted thus far in one place.
I'm mostly doing this for personal reasons (to reduce the degree to which I get lost in a zillion open documents). I plan to update the combined paper occasionally over the next few days, and I will try very hard to make sure nothing shows up in the combined paper unless it showed up elsewhere as well (thus making it completely optional for everyone).
I don't play for it to include the google document "working" sections (at least not while they remaining working documents).
I had to play with the formatting of a few papers, so I apologize in advance. If you like the idea but have suggestions on layout, just get in touch with me.
Ermo

I am uploading some evidence and reasons for the inclusion of the decriminalization of poverty. It's not a finished product, but if the committee and community are interested in the lit I might as well not leave it on my computer.

Some more work on Marijuana.

Post by: Dinger on June 12, 2014, 08:12:05 AM
Online gambling.

Probably shouldn't be included due to inherency issues. Perhaps sports gambling would work.

Thanks to Nick Ryan and Adam Symonds for the work!

Is it Kosher to write papers asking things to be left out of the resolution?


Title: Re: Links to the Wording Papers
Post by: paulmabrey on June 13, 2014, 05:52:58 AM
Not sure about the use of Kosher but if one believe's something shouldn't be included in a/any resolution, then yes - please make arguments for why something shouldn't be included. But time is quickly running out.

Work on negative ground for the area of gender identity.

Proposed Resolutions

Proposed Resolutions

Insider Trading:

The United States should legalize all or nearly all of one or more of the following: prostitution, online gambling, the sale of human organs, physician assisted suicide, insider trading, marihuana, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine.

Rationale: Is a broader topic but not as broad as the “narcotics” one. It’s a good balance of topics and should allow for the “Drug War” debates.


USFG:

The United States federal government should legalize one or more of the following: prostitution, online gambling, the sale of human organs, physician assisted suicide, insider trading, marihuana, cathinone, heroin, peyote, LSD, cocaine, MDMA, methamphetamine.

Rationale: It was in the topic paper and should be included. Yes, there are some limits to the USFG as an actor but it can access big cases in the core areas. States CP means people have to have a USFG warrant in order to read the case which keeps the topic manageable.

This document is in response to concerns expressed about using Scheduling terminology consistently for all drugs. It's not 100% clear what we SHOULD do, but this is info we SHOULD consider.

I'm also attaching a new compilation which includes the Getto & Van Luvanee files on gender identity questions.

Post by: ElleMallon on June 13, 2014, 12:54:08 PM
Sorry, I'm new here so this might be a ridiculous question. Is there a space to express concern about some proposed wordings?


Title: Re: Links to the Wording Papers
Post by: nryan on June 13, 2014, 12:55:06 PM
Feel free to express concerns in a new thread that you create. There isn't much to do other than sway voters to not vote for a topic now, as wordings are finalized.
