Class 10P have carried out some incredibly thoughtful work based around legal and illegal drugs. We have held in depth class conversations about why some drugs may be legal, whilst others are not allowed to be taken. This has been an honest piece of work where the students have researched the different effects that a particular drug might have.
A large part of our work has looked at cannabis. We asked each pupil to research this drug online. We wanted an objective analysis to be produced with a list of reasons as to why cannabis should remain illegal, as well as possible reasons for decriminalising it.
At the end of this exercise we invited each class member to deliver a short presentation to sum up the findings. We then concluded whether we thought cannabis should remain illegal or not.
You can listen to a few of these ideas being discussed in the recording below.
