Here is the brand new study debunking the myth that marijuana leads to hard drugs.
CONCLUSION: These results suggest the “gateway” pattern at least partially reflects unmeasured common causes rather than causal effects of specific drugs on subsequent use of others. This implies that successful efforts to prevent use of specific “gateway” drugs may not in themselves lead to major reductions in the use of later drugs.
The “Gateway Theory” has been proven false, and in fact, the exact opposite of reality. Studies show marijuana use actually discourages heavy drug use. Marijuana (Cannabis) is being used to treat opiate and alcohol addiction. Now how do we get the media to report the truth instead of spreading Reefer Madness?
