How medical marijuana poses a threat to increase drug use in the United States
Research paper instructions:
During this course, you are required to compose an original 8-page research paper that addresses a social problem and investigates possible solutions for the problem. The paper should include at least 5 scholarly sources and should be formatted in APA style. Throughout the course, you will submit various parts of the paper.
The annotated bibliography will help to ensure that you use concrete evidence for your research paper. In order to create this annotated bibliography, you must find 5 scholarly sources that you plan to use in your paper. Each of your sources should be scholarly and published within the last 5 years. Remember that you can use the article you found for your article review as one of your sources. Try to organize your annotations by topic; this will be helpful to you when you compose your paper. Your bibliography will be graded based on its adherence to the rubric attached above, as well as to the guidelines explained in the APA manual.
For each entry–or source–on your annotated bibliography, you should:
• Summarize the main idea in two to four sentences.
• Relate the material found in the source to your research topic using an additional one to two sentences
• Add quotes that you may want to use in your final paper.
• Evaluate the background of the author and the intended audience.
• Point out the source’s potential usefulness to your research.
