Spoof Powerpoint presentation Outline draft

The following is the outline for the Spoof powerpoint and each of the underlined subjects will be at least one slide of information. The order is not yet established but all information is to be inputted then edited to format the powerpoint slides so that the information not only informs the view but grips the attention as to the importance of the material and maintains a continuous flow that leaves little doubt that the right thing to do, objectively speaking, is to legalize marijuana. Where it says (pic) there should be a picture added to that slide. There will be many pictures added to every slide, not only the slides one that have (pic).
