Nothing speaks like experience. . . .
My bad habit? These days it's caffeine. :shrug:
This whole "gateway drug" thing is complete crap. Alcohol and Tobacco are far more widely used than marijuana. Why can't they be the gateway drugs? Tobacco is a stimulant, so naturally it makes sense that frequent tobacco users would move on to more intense stimulants like cocaine.
Stop regurgitating what politicians tell you.

Yes and no. Part of the problem is a correlation difficulty: just that kids likely to try marijuana are likely to try other things as well.
But I still hold marijuana to being a gateway drug because kids try it and find out they've been lied to and assume they've been lied to all around.
The same could be said about....alcohol. Which is, in my humble opinion, the bigger evil of the two. These past years quite a few kids died from alcohol overdose. These kids are competing with each others who's able to drink the most, etc. It impairs judgement, too. Car accidents all over the place. Casual sex here and there. If f*cks with your liver and with your growth, too. Then kids tend to buy the cheap sh*t which is of course even worse for the liver and what not.
Good thing that I've never heard of a case where a marijuana consumer died of an overdose. =)
I agree. Its like saying beer is the gateway drink to absinthe
I've just come into this thread and so apologise for missing stuff. My personal experience is living in a beautiful part of the country were smoking pot is a cultural way of life for many in the community of Penzance. It works well for many people who into the arts and music etc. It provides a social framework which appears to work to some degree. The only danger is for young people to start early and reduce there chances of getting a sustained successful career. I wouldn't want my two godchildren (boys of 9 and 4) to start when they are young. Unfortunately it is a distinct possibility since their father is a regular smoker (although he lives well and is an excellent attentive dad).
Exactly. The truth is, people who are addicted to stimulants are highly susceptible to becoming addicted to cigarettes ALSO.
Smoke POT not crack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
