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

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.

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.

Sorry, I'm new here so this might be a ridiculous question. Is there a space to express concern about some proposed wordings?

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.
