Summary: Affirmative plan repeals trade sanctions against Cuba under the theory that trade involves transportation of goods and is therefore a transportation policy. This brief counters that.

About "Cuba Embargo"
Affirmative plan repeals trade sanctions against Cuba under the theory that trade involves transportation of goods and is therefore a transportation policy. If that’s true, then everything is topical, since everything gets transported at some point. One of the biggest arguments for this case is that it would legalize the importation into the US of a new drug developed in Cuba that cures diabetic foot ulcers and reduces amputations.
Read the Minor Repair carefully; it explains how Status Quo policies can already import this drug. Keep in mind also that the drug would not suddenly start being used the day after an AFF ballot. It would still have to be tested and approved by the FDA, and those tests are already underway. Bypassing those tests would be bad (and also untopical, since it’s not a transportation policy).
