The introductory paragraph should present the following: State the problem and the thesis or proposed solution to the problem: FOR EXAMPLE: “In this essay I will argue that marijuana should be legalized for recreational use nationally.” Or, “In this essay I will argue that marijuana should be made illegal for recreational use.” Or, “In this essay I will argue that the legalization of marijuana should be repealed.” Explain or describe your general position, and any general qualifications to the proposed solutions.
