    At all of the sessions given at Colonel Gray by opiate-addicted teenagers, they ALL said the gateway drugs were cigarettes and alcohol. Many many many people smoke weed and do not progress to other drugs. You really need to educate yourself.---- i agree you guys talking down about weed your just as bad as racists and prejudiced..... grow up its not a gate way drug i smoke pot and have for years i never wanted a better high its not even a high in my books its a muscle relaxer ... stop being stereotypical about marijuana go smoke a joint might change your insights on it

      Dear stoned pickle you have unwittingly demonstrated how cannabis adversely effects the mind. Enjoy your blissful ignorance and a career collecting twist ties. Wow! Your next bowl should be a toilet bowl. Please flush.

    they think they can smoke and drive legally !!! they think they are neither impaired looking nor impaired !! they think they are not contributing to major crime nor severe family problems when they buy !!! They are just a WALKING TALKING DENIAL machine - !! Why do they require this stuff ? They will tell you they don't and it's not addictive !! Kids in junior high get it from the same place as the older addicts get it from !!! Just another escape from reality - but they say it's perfectly normal !!!

    Don, the high from pot doesn't change, unless it's a different strain with a higher or lower THC content. I first smoked pot over 20 yrs ago and haven't moved on to anything else. I'm living proof that pot isn't necessarily a "gateway drug". I have a full time job, own my home (No mortgage and paid for with hard earned money) and I am a damn good parent. Not everyone who smokes pot turns into an addict. Furthermore, alcohol is LEGAL and it ruins a lot more lives, especially on this island.

      What does that have to do with transporting and selling marijuana. They are drug dealers! Scum of the earth. Put you big boy hat on before you go off on some nonsensical diatribe . I deal with these knuckleheads all the time . Don't make them out like modern day Robin Hoods. They're just hoods. They rip off electricity growing weed with their in-home grow ops. Is there anyone with a sober thought on this island?

    Weed is a gateway drug plain and simple no argument since weed is described in the same context as coke, pills, heroin etc. kids have no choice but to try them all after smoking weed. They had a great time smoking weed and didn't die so how can the crack or booze be any different. If people were smart they would take weed out of the booze and drugs category all together because it doesn't belong with the rest of those losers.

    Riddle me this. The plant in question is naturally grown. Right? And it is widely accepted that it was put here by our Creator. Right? Well then, should there not be an arrest warrant issued for our Creator for growing these illegal plants in the first place? Equal justice for all? Right?

      weed as they say is the 1st steep to more drugs when weed no longer gives you the high you want you want that high again so you head for crack etc. how many babies are born each year of drug users? according to america now more then 13,000 infants a year, or one drug-addicted baby born each hour. or crack babies:Cocaine is very harmful to the fetus. Some infants are born with deformed hearts, lungs, digestive systems or limbs; others suffer what amounts to a disabling stroke while in the womb. The problem isn't of intractable proportions: The most widely cited estimate -- up to 375,000 fetally exposed babies (or "crack-babies") born per year -- is much too high.

      Really don I this just off the top of your head I for one know of at least 30 or more people who smoke pot and has Never done any harder drugs they do it no different than people who go home and have a cold beer but wait the gov't had taxes on alcohol so it's ok to drink man made garbage.Drinking and driving kills every day but hey the taxes made off booze is great for gov't.Having a puff is all in the eyes of the person.That being said go smoke one and keep your narrow minded options to your self

      Don.... First off, saying pot is a gateway to crack, as a mindless automatic step, is like saying that using a water pistol is an automatic gateway to gun crime. It's coincidental that most people who smoke crack have smoked pot, it's a backwards stat, like if I said all my relatives have brown hair, therefore all people with brown hair are my relatives, all crack users have smoked pot, so all pot smokers will use crack? Sounds thin, it is true, that in finding pot, a person is put into an environment where addictive substances can be bought, but if pot were not illegal, the opportunity to buy or try hard drugs wouldn't be there. Pot and crack are not interchangeable highs, one doesn't cause a craving for the other. What you're missing is the issue of education, at some point, almost every addict has made a conscious decision to do a harmful drug, and most addicts will tell you, if they'd known what would happen, they never would've started, it's simply a lack of education, it's education and warning labels that prevent an epidemic of kids drinking anti-freeze, but there are no warning labels for crack, just wild misquoted information, like the article you cited don, was published in 1989.. All of the stats and numbers you stated are heavily exaggerated and propped up with myths.. For real information, based on a long term study on fetal crack exposure, try here: http://articles.philly.com/2013-07-22/news/40709969_1_hallam-hurt-so-called-crack-babies-funded-study rather than copy pasting sections from an article that best suits your argument, no matter what your cause, that's propoganda at best.

      I suppose my comment/argument was too big for the guardian to post, but, here is the article from 1989 that don is using copy and pasting for propoganda purposes http://www.welfareacademy.org/pubs/childwelfare/crackbabies-0889.shtml And here is an actual article on babies with fetal crack exposure: http://articles.philly.com/2013-07-22/news/40709969_1_hallam-hurt-so-called-crack-babies-funded-study
