QUESTION
WRITING A THeSIS STATEMENT!!!!!?
Im writing a persuasive essay on why marijuana should not be legalized because it affects & harms people. im gna give facts in from 2 articles to prove it. i wrote a thesis but i want a really strong one. any ideas? thnx !!! 🙂

Marijuana shouldn’t be legalized because it affects a person in many harmful ways

ANSWER
First of all, in a paper you should never use contractions (such as shouldn’t). It sounds and looks more professional when you spell each word out. Also, you’ll want to keep thesis clear and concise. It is the most important sentence in your paper and you do not want your readers to be confused. What you have it great, although I would perhaps reorganize it. Here is a suggestion:

Because of marijuana’s harmful affects, it should not be legalized.

If you wanted to be more specific (and that is a great idea), you will want to elaborate. What examples do the articles give? For example you could write a thesis like this:

Marijuana causes _______, _________ and ________ in humans and should therefore not be legalized.
