Themes of Marriage in the Merchant?s Tale In Geoffrey Chaucer?s ?The Merchant?s Tale?, the theme of marriage is viewed in a few different ways. Although the Merchant uses sarcasm to misconstrue his true opinions of marriage, it is evident by the end of the tale that he thinks it foolish for a man to commit himself to a woman in such a way. To begin, the tale considers marriage to be a religious and holy ceremony in which a man and woman are joined together by God. This view, provided to us by th

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??

Marijuana, when used in moderation, is not anymore harmful than alcohol or
