    for 99.9999% of users.

    Does anybody bypass marijuana and go straight to cocaine, heroin and meth?

    The primary reason weed should not be legalized for recreational use.

    What do you care what another adult does with his own body? If he isn't hurting anyone or taking what doesn't belong to him, shouldn't he be left alone? Did you not learn anything from alcohol prohibition? Where in the Constitution would I find "outlaw drugs"? You realize no one in the history of mankind has overdosed from cannabis, right? What's next, outlawing soda and french fries or any other food that might be bad for you?

    So many question that cannot be answered with logic and reason...but feel free to try.

    Does anybody who shoots heroin not eat a Hershey bar at some time prior to being a smack fiend?

    We need to ban Hershey bars!

    Maybe, maybe not. But the OP is a complete logical fail regardless. If there is anything to the gateway drug argument, the statistic that would bear that out is the percentage of people who smoke weed that go on to harder drugs. The percentage of hard drug users that have also smoke weed is completely meaningless. I bet the percentage that have also consumed alcohol is just as high, and equally irrelevant.

    He wrote in his books that he did. He was a pothead until he could afford cocaine.

    We have a nation where more and more people cannot get through the day without being high on something. We have a generation of children so desperate to get high that they drink hand sanitizer. They don't want to read a book, they don't want to play a game, they don't want to talk to a friend. They don't want to do anything but get high.

    The hope of the American people is not a better tomorrow, but a thoroughly wasted today. There is no way the drug issue can be solved until the people themselves decide they don't want to be addicts.

    At least in the US, I would guess that underage drinking would compete with pot for first illegal drug use.

    Then again, at this point, illegal use of prescription drugs might need to be in the mix, too.

    Its easier to buy weed off the streets than it is to find an adult to purchase alcohol for you.
