1. Take a look at the examples in the links above. Which one(s) make you want to keep reading beyond the first paragraph? That’s the test of whether a lede/lead works.
We think that the most interesting article that catches the readers attention would be the third one:
"Marijuana can save lives". First of all, it discusses a current issue that a lot of people have interest in and also includes facts and statistics that make it more reliable.
2. Is the title effective? Why? Why not?
The title is effective because it states an opposite point of view of what is considered as a general truth, that marijuana has only negative effects on people’s health.
