    Default no reason

    Can one say:
    1-I see no reason to take any medication.

    instead of:
    1a-I see no reason for you to take any medication.

    Can one say:
    2-I see no reason not to go to practice tomorrow.

    instead of:
    2a-I see no reason for you not to go to practice tomorrow.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Possibly, but only in contexts where it was clear who you were referring to.
