Why do they call marijuana a gateway drug?
If weed is illegal, how can it be a gateway drug?

Wouldn't the gateway drug, have to be a legal drug?

It's an opening in the fence drug?

Because propaganda is easier to swallow than the truth.

Because it is typically sold at around the gate of gated communities.

The real reason is because cannabis opens the perceptual gateways that the gatekeepers have been desperately fighting people from opening.

The word marijuana is Mexican slang. The REAL name is Cannabis and it is NOT a drug; it is a medicine. You can learn a lot at this site.

Re: Why do they call marijuana a gateway drug?
Because kids hear about the evils of the horrible devil weed over and over again and out of curiosity they try it and see that it was just hyped up as being bad and so they think that the harder drugs have been hyped as being bad and so they give em a try.

At least that was how it was for me.

Is it easier to get meth/coke/crac etc, in the USA now than weed?

Small towns, sure, weed would still be more obtainable, but in the bigger cities, would it still be?

through time weed doesn't give the same effects as it did the first few months, or depending on how much you smoke.. keyword is tolerance, which leads you to wanting to do something "new" or "stronger" like mushrooms, acid, lsd, and worse case scenario meth and heroine.

Weed is a lot hard to get then any other drug here where I live and its a really small town. I could find at least 2 meth labs in my town and the cops wont do a damn thing about them.

I come from a big family of pot smokers and not one of them moved on to harder drugs. Now they're older with families. A couple of them were a little nutty, and smoking helped them to act normal for a change.

My mom passed away last year, and none of the meds would help her. She was 98, and we tried to get her to try it just once to see if it would help. Never could get her to do so though, but I know she would have found a moment of peace. I should have made Brownies, but I didn't want to force it on her without her consent.

I'm a bi-product of the 70's but never smoked, but I don't see anything harmful in it at all. meh' I probably got enough of it just inhaling other's fumes.

Hmmm, so instead of making each person responsible for what they do in life, we ban certain things because we know that most people are sheeple.

Kinda sad society we live in now.

Glad I do not social-lies much anymore.

yep that's it! and that works in many ways.. one doesn't have control over their own lives, by law!
wierd twist to this 'lawfull' control over your life, if one tries to take their own life, it's actually illegal?!?

Possibly it's more about those with over-indulgence issues, and people who have addictive personalities. If they already have a problem whether they do or don't smoke pot, they may do the Draino anyway, er' I mean the other stuff.

I'm not sure we can rely on any of these studies. Everything else is a lie, why would their studies not be tainted as well to mold a particular mindset?

Because they are assholes and won't call nicotine or alcohol a gateway drug because they want to give weed a bad rep.
