im writing a research essay about the legalization of drugs are there any good websites you have for this topic? Also i have to say which side i take without saying the other side is wrong, and don't know how to make this paper sound too general.

I suggest you start by reading several of these websites.
To make the paper specific, you can cite statistics, quote experts, and give details about legalization of some of the most common drugs.

thank you, also i have to be able to sympathsize with the other side, but last time i wrote an essay and did that for this class, it sounded like i was for both sides. how do i make it so that i can strongly agree with 1 side, but also can understand where people are coming from on the other side. last time i wrote more about the side i was for than the 1 i wasnt, but my teacher still said i needed more information.

First, do a thorough job of researching both sides of the question. Then, you can use such phrases as, "the (opposition) seems to forget that . . ." or "I understand their concerns, but . . ." or "they have a good point, but . . ."

I think you'll find yourself using more facts for your side than the other.
