The only reason AT ALL that someone could say marijuana is a gateway drug is because the people who sell marijuana are constantly pushing the other stuff. It's not that marijuana causes people to want to do other drugs, it's BECAUSE IT'S ILLEGAL AND YOU HAVE TO GET IT FROM SOME SHITHEAD WHO WANTS TO SELL COCAINE AND CRACK TOO. So in effect the prohibition of marijuana is the gateway to illegal drug use. Treat it like alcohol. Sell it. Tax it. Get it off the streets and everyone's quality of life will be improved.
I'm just speaking from my own personal experiences. I grew up and went to school with lots of kids that smoked weed. All but a handful went on to something more powerful; most threw their lives away as a result. If that's not a "gateway drug" I don't know what it.
All I can attest to is what I've seen and experienced. No amount of twisting it will make me see otherwise.
I don't know what statistics say b/c I don't really care to look this stuff up, but I know what addicts say. Every single addict of a harder drug (not prescription, that's an issue in and of itself) I've talked to in person started with pot. Probably b/c pot is easy to find. And I've talked to a lot of addicts.But some study you can find on the internet or in a book might be right. It's just not MORE right than actual human interaction.
Actually most addicts if you ask them what the first illegal substance they used they say pot. When you ask them what was the first substance they used most all will say tabacco. I tried cigarettes, snuff, alcohol, ritalin,Xanax, cough syrup before i ever got pot. Just because something is legal doesnt mean it isnt an illicit substance. Top three harmful addictions in the country:TabaccoAlcoholPharmaceuticals(prescription drugs)<---- saddest one is this one because a majority of these addicts are bein told to take thesedrugs by doctors.Starkville ill even throw food in there as a prevelant addiction i dont see any of you trying to shut down your local mcdonalds. Also the idea that the amount of hardcore drug users would increase if all was legal is stupid. Why would that happen? I,like most people, dont do heroin because it is horribly addictive and will kill you not because it is illegal. If it became legal I, like mos people am notgoing to all of the sudden start using it simply because oh now its legal. The peoPle who do hard drugs do them regaurdless of of legality same as the peoPle who dont do hard drugs regardless of the law. Legality isnt controlling the amount of users of hard drugs.
I don't want weed legalized. Contrary to popular opinion on here, it is a gateway drug. Seen it too many times. You can downplay it all you want, but the bottom line is it's illegal. Why risk your future doing an illegal drug? Simple, the world is full of dumbasses. I could smoke weed, but I choose not to. I do not want to jeopardize my job nor my freedom.
Wow, I had a lot of friends in college who smoked weed, in fact several still do, and for the most part they are all pretty successful normal dudes.So now what do we do?
All I can tell you people is that once I discovered anal sex, the whole world appeared in a different hue.
You know it's bad when you get arrested in jail.
Glad they are taking this trash off the streets! Lock her up and throw away the key!Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence announced today that a Norfork woman, 25 year old Ashley Blalock, was arrested Sunday on numerous charges, including four felonies and one misdemeanor related to her allegedly furnishing prohibited articles to Carl Vannater, of Pineville, who was an inmate at the Izard County Detention Facility. According to Sheriff Lawrence, at the time of Vannater's incarceration Ashley Blalock brought a bible containing tobacco, rolling papers and synthetic marijuana to give to him. Blalock was charged with 3 felonies, furnishing prohibited articles, conspiracy to furnish prohibited articles and possession of drug paraphernalia with the purpose to conceal a controlled substance. She was also charged with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance. A fourth felony, unlawful use of a communication device, was added to the list of charges as the result of phone conversations between Blalock and Vannater discussing how the prohibited items would be concealed and delivered.Blalock remains in the Izard County Jail in lieu of a $25,000 bond. Similar charges have been filed and an arrest will be executed against Carl Vannater who is currently incarcerated at the Arkansas Department of Correction.
So I gather that guys in prison feel that they aren't suffering enough, and would like a headache to go with their own personal version of Deliverance? What the fuck is the world coming to when the criminals are smoking the fake shit? You're in jail - what are they gonna do? I'll admit I don't know, but do they piss you in the joint? And if they do, isn't that kinda like blatantly admitting incompetence on the part of prison officials? Lots of questions, I know.
