    I've heard many counters, milk is the ultimate cus we all start on it, ect. The simple point is that it's a myth. There is no "gateway drug" people who pick up a substance and choose to use it for pleasure will find a way to do so.

    Some are socially acceptable like cocktail hour and some aren't, like a blast of cocaine before the party. Both of those drugs are addictive and have ravaged the lives of many, for some they are no big deal. I will use myself as an example, a former raging alcoholic who did coke many times at parties and never really gave a rat's ass about it, certainly wouldn't buy it.

    We have to acknowledge that drugs and people react in individual ways, that exposure to other drugs through dealers is the ultimate gateway and we have to deal with drug use in a sane and humane manner. Pot can be someone's problem, so can sugar or gambling or you name it. Bringing the law into this and demonizing pot of all things is crazy.
