Project #96569 - Medical Marijuana (Pro)

In each Policy Paper you will attempt to persuade a Congress person to vote for a policy in favor of your side of the topic.  One goal of this assignment is to summarize information in a concise manner.  Concise summary is an important skill, especially when attempting to convince someone of a particular point of view.  The Policy Design Worksheet should be used as a guide on how to construct a thorough policy.

Technical Requirements for Policy Papers:

Format for Policy Papers:

Paragraph 1:  Introduction and thesis sentence

  • Introduce the topic
  • Pro or Con - state whether your argument is Pro or Con (see above for assignment schedule)
  • Include a thesis statement as your last sentence.  A thesis statement clearly states what your paper is going to cover.  It gives an overview of the points you will make.  This will organize and define the main points of your paper.   
    • Hint: Write your thesis sentence last.  That way you can focus on the flow of information within the body of your paper and then make your thesis sentence match your topics at the end of your writing process.  
    • Example: This paper will illustrate the pros and cons of X, refute common arguments for/against X, and propose a public health policy to address this important public health topic.

Paragraph 2 and 3:  Chosen side of the argument

Paragraph 4: Opposite side of argument and rebuttal

Paragraph 5:  Policy recommendations

  • Based on your completion of the Policy Design Worksheet, present your policy recommendation here. Be detailed in your discussion and improve upon what you wrote in the Worksheet.
  • Include stakeholders who may be affected by this policy recommendation (individuals on both sides of the issue).
  • Your policy should be unique, and should not simply state the assigned side of the topic.  For example, your policy cannot be to keep the issue legal in states where it is already legal.  This is simply maintaining the status quo, and will not be accepted as a unique policy.

Reference Page containing APA Style Citations

  • See Plagiarism Warning within syllabus.  Provide a full citation for each source of information you cite in your paper. 
  • APA is a referencing style that is used in the field of public health.  Within this course, we rely on the use of APA to ensure appropriate referencing procedures are used to safeguard plagiarism and set a standard for academic writing.  Adhere to APA style strictly.  Please review the APA Style Citation Guide and APA Tutorial in Canvas under “Course Introduction”. Also be sure to include in-text citations throughout the body of your paper.
