  1. I am truly sorry for these parents loss but it is far more likely their children’s substance abuse started with alcohol they swiped from the refrigerator or cupboard at home.

  2. HEROIN! NOT CANNABIS MOTHER F UCKER! F UCK KEVIN SABET, AND S.A.M AND ANYONE WHO FOLLOWS!!! IT'S COMING PPL! GET YOU HEADS OUT OF THE SAND AND STOP BLAMING A GOD GIVEN PLANT, AND LOOK IN THE MIRROR! "WHY WAS MY xyz ON DRUGS……..UH, MAYBE BC YOU WERENT A PARENT!!"

  3. Marijuana has literally helped me decide not to commit suicide and I used it instead of hydros and I have no urge to do more that smoke. It's like alcohol some people react differently and some have more addictive tendencies

  4. The gateway argument is illogical. Because A preceded B it does not follow that A is the cause of B. You have to prove causation. According to the logic of the gateway theory, it could be said that birth causes death, because before one dies he has to be born. Some studies of the gateway theory suggest a correlation between cannabis use and hard drug use, but this only indicates that there is some sort of relationship between the two but they fail to disclose the exact nature of that relationship.  Correlation does not equal causation.

    "One RAND Corporation study failed to identify a significant gateway effect in the case of marijuana. RAND speculated that a common-factor model, in which certain factors (genetic, environmental, social, etc.) determine the likelihood of a particular subject engaging in the use of particular drugs (the "common-factor model"), is another possibility.[1] Hence, it may be a case for which correlation does not equal causation.
