Your initial post is worth up to 10 points, and your subsequent reply posts (participation) in the discussion are worth up to 15 points. Participation is defined as: creating a minimum of two (2) substantive replies to fellow students in addition to any of the professor’s postings and actively contributing to the discussion. A substantive reply post should have academic support or include personal insight on the subject, drawing from your reading, research, data and personal experiences. A response such as I agree or good job will not meet the assignment criteria. A substantive response should be a minimum of 8-10 well-structured sentences and posted as a reply to the original assignment posting.
You have been asked to develop a public opinion poll on the legalization of marijuana for medicinal purposes.
In your initial post:
Write one poll question related to the above topic that violates the guidelines for writing questions as described in your textbook.
Phrase the question not only so that it results in misleading answers that are favorable to one side of the argument, but also so that it would appear too many people to be a perfectly reasonable question.
