How does the standard of proof differ between a criminal prosecution and a civil actions. Should they be the same? Why or Why not? Ipersonally don't see them the same. The standard proof in a criminal prosecution case is what we proudly boast in America, that the person is innocent until proven guilty. The standard proof in the case would be that the prosecution needs to provide evidence to prove that the person on trial is guilty. The defendant needs to do the opposite and prove that they are NOT guilty. The defendant however, doesn't necessarily have as much pressure on them to...

What is the difference between a legal justification and a legal excuse? Give some examples of each. This issue seems to be one that is highly debated and often used in the criminal justice system.

What are the arguments both pro and con for the legalization of marijuana? I love this question. I am a strong advocate for the decriminalization of not just marijuana, all of the so called drugs that we have in the United States. In the 1930's you could legally walk into a store and purchase morphine and the drug 'problem' was nowhere near what it is today. Why is that? Because the people had the freedom to choose without the government trying to tell them how they could and could not live. But let's keep to the issue at hand.
