Gateway Drugs
11 months ago

I was watching a news/opinion program tonight and a guest on the show who was a professor and a doctor made the following statement:

"I have never encountered an individual with a hard drug problem with didn't start with pot"

Personally I found this to be very interesting and I think it all depends on where you decide the start starts.

was pot really the start

could it have been the beer they drank before the pot?

could it be the coffee they drank as a small child from their fathers cup?

if we are going to have this concept of "gateway drugs" where one evil drug leads to more and harder drug how do we really know where to start? do we really just assume the start, the first thing that felt good was the illegal drug?

personally I don't believe in "Gateway" drugs. I believe some people have personalities that make them more inclined to experiment and others just don't

so what do you think - is pot a gate way drug and if so what is it more of one than booze or tobacco or coffee
