I just gave my pro smoking speech today and I got a very mixed reaction from my classmates. It was an informative speech so I focused on the pro's and con's of smoking marijuana. There weren't many persoanl facts about my life in the speech except for some anticdotes (sp?). The professor was very pleased that I took a topic many people are uncomfortable with and one that is controversial and gave a mature, relevant speech relying on facts. I've spoken with him outside of class regarding the topic and I was ready for his approval. My classmates surprised me, however. Some classmates enjoyed it and those are the kids I know or assumed smoked. Some kids were amazed that I was blatantly open about my illegal activity on campus, which was to be expected. Then there were a couple of anti-drug, innocent students (mainly female?) that thought I was innapropriate and those students are the reason I am not going to carry for a couple of days. There was one person that gave me the stink eye, and I would not be surprised if she reports me. My professor said he does not care about my personal life, and all he wanted was a well developed speech that I delivered at the same quality as my others (this is one class I excell at). I thought you guys might like to hear about my eexciting day in speech class today. Also, I hope you guys find humorouse, as I do, that some college kids at a major university were amazed that there were drug users among the population. NOTE: this was NOT a pro legalazation speech. I am not sure that bud should be legalized. It would be wonderful if you could legally carry, but there are far too many problems in todays society and in the government to undertake something of that size and complexity. This was a pro socially smoking speech.
