Several higher minimum wages went into effect today in places such as Washington, DC, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The US city with the highest current minimum wage is Emeryville, CA ($14.82), and the states with the highest minimum wages at the moment are California and Massachusetts ($10).

Should the #minimumwage be raised?

Fewer prescriptions were written for drugs such as opioid pain killers and antidepressants in states with legal medical marijuana between 2010 and 2013, according to a July 2016 study published in Health Affairs. States without legal medical marijuana did not see a decrease in prescriptions. Should marijuana be a medical option?

Pros and Cons of Controversial Issues
Introduction
ProCon.org is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity that has no government affiliations of any kind. Our purpose is to provide resources for critical thinking and to educate without bias. We do not express opinions on our research projects ("issue websites").

Our mission statement is: "Promoting critical thinking, education, and informed citizenship by presenting controversial issues in a straightforward, nonpartisan, primarily pro-con format."

We accomplish our mission by researching issues that we feel are controversial and important, and we work to present them in a balanced, comprehensive, straightforward, and primarily pro-con format at no charge on our websites.
