Aah yes, once again drug use [likely begun with marijuana] has led to a life of crime – and a LOT of expense for us taxpayers. And how many brain cells has this woman already killed off?

Pot is in no way a gateway drug. I never went beyond its use and everyone else I know that has used/tried it has never gone beyond it either. Alcohol leads to more things than pot does.

I have to agree with Iron Mike on this one. Maybe you and your friends got your pot unlaced, but most of the dealers out there put other stuff in it to get you hooked on Heroin and other stuff. I seen more people coming into the hospital unresponsive or dead and they only used pot, so they thought.

Big difference between getting pot that is laced with something and calling pot a gateway drug. Know your dealer and make sure there is nothing mixed in and pot is extremely safe and non-addictive and certainly does not lead to stronger drugs. It is the persons choice to move on to stronger things. I have known people that did coke but have never touched pot. The act of smoking pot has never killed anybody.

Iron Mike, It is always good advice to know who your connection is when you are getting your glaucoma medicine. If you dont really know and trust your connection then you are never really sure of what you are getting. Nothing inane about my comment. Show me one single case where somebody has died from an overdose of pot? It has never happened. All the deaths involved in the drug wars are a direct result of the governments stupidity in keeping pot on the evil drugs list. If it was legalized and treated the same as alcohol then none of those deaths would happen and we would save money as well as lives.
