Lately, the question about legalizing the accessible drug and bad drug that is marijuana in our country has been brought in the discussions of many people. First of all, it’s important to know that marijuana has many bad effects on people. It is actually really damaging for  the brain and it can also develop many bad diseases such has mental illnesses and even some physical pain. Nobody would wand to live with that. Second of all, with the marijuana that could become legal in our country, people could easily develop an addiction.

The new government has a way to make us feel like marijuana isn't a big issue. They want to legalize it so it can be consumed on friday just like alcohol or cigarettes, two things that are already causing problems to the society. It is clear that legalizing marijuana would cause some trouble. In the first place, just think about how smoking costs a lot to society in health and by making it legal to smoke that drug, the cost is going to get bigger. In the second place, making marijuana legal may increase the risk of creating a new addiction for the people who only smoke once in a blue moon.

One of the biggest debates right now is about the legalization of marijuana. It shouldn't be legalized because of the effects that come with it. It's in the same categorie as alcohol. It's not a safe way to stop the illegal traffic because consumers will turn themselves to different drugs witch are even more unsafe to use. It's important at this point to see how hard it is to completely stop an illegal activity such as drug dealing. People will always find a way to buy this drug even if it's considered legal.

Apple products have many flaws, Apple don’t work on their products like other the companies competing in the market. The "I" brand is very restricted on many levels, the operating system of these products is designed to work on Apple hardware only. Windows and Linux on the other hand, have a ton of different combination possible to work with, you can use an Intel processor on an ASUS motherboard with an AMD graphic card with no problem. Mac computers cannot do such thing, every piece of hardware has to be from Apple or the computer is not going to work.

The future can either be seen as something frightning or as something exciting, but it appears terrifying for most people. First, the future is obviously frightning for those who struggle with finding their way. Of course, it makes them insecure about how and where they will end up. On the opposite side, the future may seem exciting for people who have specific goals and who are planning to live in a certain way, but there is still a teryfying feeling. What if things don't happen the way they want? What if they don't succeed? There is always the fear of failing.

First of all, not knowing what’s going to happen in the future is a good thing. If we already knew exactly how our whole life is going to be, it would be very boring. Just imagine knowing the date of our death. Also, life is an adventure. Every day is a chance to learn and discover. It’s sure that sometimes adventures can be frightening, but in the end, the excitement surely surpasses the fear. Finally, living in fear will not lead to anything good. It’s better to see in the future an occasion to improve yourself rather than think about what can go wrong.

Is it better to take any job than to be unemployed? Without any doubts, it is. As an example, if an individual doesn't have a job, he wouldn't be able to pay the bills and will end up full of debts or could even end up living in the street. It doesn't matter if it is an unpleasant job, there is nothing that keeps someone from searching a better one eventually. Of course, some limits apply, since the job shouldn't cross the illegal borders, because the prison could be the next stop.

Is it possible that computers replace teachers? There is a huge discussion on this question. There are many researchers or enthusiasts who claim that computer-based learning will replace teachers. There are also people who disagree with computers replacing teachers. Both sides have clear opinions and it is not so easy for us to help students choose the way of studying. Meanwhile, many schools or cram schools introduce computers in classes recently. Which is more effective for students to be taught by computers or teachers?

Have you ever heard of the word “Black Company”? The origin of this word is Japanese and it refers to a company which doesn’t follow the Labor Standards Law. According to Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the number of workers suffered from Black companies in 2012 was 1,067,210. Some of them got diseases, some mental problems or others lost their lives, so I think that we must do something against them as soon as possible. In this essay, I will explain the reasons why the problems that they have today and the measures against them.

In Japan, the Japanese government recommends and promotes old people who are over 65 years old to return their driver’s license to prevent and decrease traffic accidents, I think that the recommendation is an effective action. Recently, some Japanese old people had traffic accidents, because of their poor driving ability. They have lost their physical ability. Such as decreased vision, impaired hearing, and slowed motor reflexes. So today, I will introduce a demerit and merits of returning old people’s driver’s license.

There are a lot of Shinto shrines in Japan, and lots of foreign tourists are interested in them. Shrines are visited during special events such as the New Year, Shichigosan,which is a Japanese annual event to celebrate health growth and wish longevity for three and seven-year-old daughters. Many couples hold their wedding ceremonies there and new born babies are traditionally brought to a shrine a few weeks after birth to celebrate their bath. People visit shrines in order to pay respect to the gods or to pray for good fortune.

The most child-friendly kindergarten in Japan attracts many people. It is famous for its unique design. There are an endless playground, and trees growing through classrooms.

This essay will show you the features of Fuji kindergarten, the roles of trees, and the devices that make children feel comfortable.

What is the heart of the public train stations in Japan? Many Japanese people would answer that it is Tokyo Station. It is the biggest station in Japan. We can feel tradition and dignity there. That is because it has been under construction even though over 100 years has passed since it was built. Today, I will introduce the history of the station, its features and famous spots in it.

Hi, I’m 003 Tigers. Your essay was very good. I think that food wasting is a big problem in the world. However, most Japanese people don’t worry about it because Japan is one of the richest countries and they don’t care that. Thanks to your writing, I could know the information about it. This problem can cause many problems such as ecological health and so on. We know that a lot of people are hungry around the world. Therefore, we should think the measures to solve it. Japanese people should feel danger because Japan can be poor country in the future.

You're right to say that it's a big problem and this is why the solutions are really hard to find... South Americans are not the only ones to blame, because we all use what they produce. If everybody reduces his or her consumption, it could be beneficial for the Amazonian forest!

Good essay, I've never heard of this aquarium before so it's nice to read about it. You’re doing a great description of it so it’s easy to understand why it’s so popular. Your essay makes me want to visit the aquarium but unfortunately I’m in Canada. I also appreciate that you’ve made some research to understand its popularity. It's impressive that 400 species of marine life live there, hope you get the chance to go visit this place again, you really seems to appreciate it!

Hello Harumi, I’m a student from Quebec, Canada. I’ve read your essay, and I think that it’s really good. The way you describe this no so well known airport as an eye-catching destination make you understand the mood and the atmosphere surrounding it makes me wonder how I would feel myself about it.

Hello, my name is Virginie and I live in Canada. I really like the fact that you described the history of the temple because I find it really interesting. I really like to know about what happened in old temples and monuments because it tells us a little bit more about our world. If I go to Kyoto, it would be a nice place that I would like to visit because your description was very interesting and I’d like to see a part of the culture of your country. Moreover, even if it’s a restoration, it’s a beautiful monument and it would be impressive to see it.
It was a really good essay, thank you for sharing it!

Hi, my name is Benoit Lamontagne from Quebec, Canada. First off, I liked the way you gave us a general perspective of Kaiyukan and all the general information's around it. Personally, I don't remember the last time I went to an aquarium and your text definitely convinced me to go again (not necessarily the aquarium of Osaka Kaiyukan because let's be honest Japan is pretty far from here..). Sadly, in Quebec we don't have an aquarium near as impressive as this one because of the style of the aquarium which I think gives a great impression to the visitors. Anyways, I hope one day that I will have the chance to discover the best attractions of Japan.

Hi, my name is Ann-Julie and I'm from Quebec Canada! I really liked your essay, it made me discover a new style of Learning that I found exceptionally amazing. It is really great to see that in your country they found a way to make kindergarten really fun for little children. I also really liked the fact that they get to discover things on their own, for example with the trees, like you said, they can learn their own limit and make an huge difference between what is safe and what can be dangerous for them. Finally, I found interesting to know that the children are not confined between four walls like the majority of other kindergarten ,but they have a classroom full of light and huge Windows which create a brighter and lighter environment. Overall your essay was really good and informative ; it taught me a lot.

Hello, my name is Jean-François Trudel and I'm a student in Occupational, health, safety and environment at the Cégep of Jonquière. This is located in the province of Québec, which is in Canada. Thank you for posting this. I have often seen those shrines in movies or on picture, but I've never known exactly what they are. I found those structures very beautiful, and the story behind them is even more beautiful. The description you have made really help me understand the whole history of the shrines. Thank you again, reading this opened my mind to new cultures and give me the taste to travel to Japan. Maybe one day it will happen.
