if marijuana is a gateway drug....
i'd be willing to bet that most people (i'm not so sure, but i know it applies for me and all my friends) cigs and/or alcohol came before marijuana... so what's REALLY the gateway drug?
how far back can you go?
Well.. I'd say caffeine.
And yeah.. the bullshit propaganda machine is in full swing after 9-11. I'm just glad we have people out there who put commercials out about how buying GASOLINE also contributes to terrorism (and to a greater effect, IMO).
So.... I guess that would make every single person with an automobile a contributor to terror. Big fuckin' deal. We still have to deal with the terrorists.
My theory on why marijuana is slightly a "gateway" drug:
We have been told since our early days in school that marijuana is a dangerous killer. Once we find out that they were not truthful with us regarding marijuana... then we wonder what else they've been fibbing about.
And this commercial that shows a bunch of kids getting busted in the school bathroom for smoking in the stall (how fuckin' stupid of them anyway?).
At the end it says "Marijuana, harmless?". Excuse me.. but I believe it was the COPS doing the harm there. If it's the law that is the biggest danger of smoking pot.. well then does it really need to be illegal in the first place?
Not that I support smoking at school at all.. it's just the whole message of the commercial is BULLSHIT!
