What studies have been done proving short and long term consequences of marijuana use and what were the results? Are there any neurological effects of using the drug? Should there be laws restricting amounts of the drug that can be used in a certain period of time?

What can we do to support and provide for elderly individuals suffering from depression? Do you think that elderly communities such as nursing homes are a means by which we can combat this epidemic?

The stigma around the word "depression" varies wildly depending on where you are in the world. What can our governments and lawmakers to do make life easier for those living with depression? Are they any current laws in place to help and protect those with mental health issues like depression?

Depression is a crippling disease, and many people need to turn to antidepressants in order to regain control of their lives. Antidepressants are among the most commonly prescribed medication in the United States, and they are often prescribed for long-term use. Data on long-term effects is limited, but some studies have found that long-term use can cause blood sugar problems, weight gain, and addiction to the drug. Some people also report that long-term use causes them not to feel like themselves. Are the side effects of these drugs worth it? Is quality of life actually improving? What are the other options for treatment when it comes people living with severe depression?

A recent measles outbreak has prompted NYC health officials to ban unvaccinated children from attending school in some areas in Brooklyn, even if the child has a medical condition or religious exemption. Should other school systems take this as a warning and take comparable preventative measures?
