What do you think is the significance of the Witches in Macbeth?
The Three Witches in Shakespeare’s Macbeth are said to ‘look not like th’inhabitants o’th’earth’ (1,3,41). It is this constant ambiguity which pervades their character that has inflamed debate over both their origins, and perhaps more importantly, the extent of their influence over Macbeth’s frantic thought process throughout the play.

- Decriminalization of Marijuana
Decriminalization of Marijuana
There are many arguments and points of view on whether marijuana should be legalized or remain illegal. The first question we have to ask ourselves is “Do individuals deserve the right to decide whether or not they should use marijuana?” Is it right for the government to dictate what individuals do in the privacy of their own homes as long as it does not pose a threat to them or harm others?
