Pot has nothing to do with oxy or heroin that's like saying beer Leeds to pot. There's plenty of pill heads that never smoked weed the gateway drug excuse is outdated

Cons for Legalizing Marijuana:

1.A State cannot be involved with the distribution of substances considered immoral by relevant lots of the population. A substance considered unhealthy cannot be produced and distributed with the help of the state, because the goal of the state is to protect citizens’ health and not to expose them to risk.
2.The easy availability of drugs would create new consumers rather than rescuing current ones.
3.Drugs are addictive. They rob the user of free will. A drug user cannot make an informed and rational decision to continue using drugs because the use of the drug eliminates that user’s ability to think logically. Nor can they disseminate themselves from drug taking.
4.Drug use is dangerous to persons besides the user. In the rise of health care costs, violence associated with the use of drugs, neglect of children by drug-addicted parents, and other third party effects.
5.The use of soft drugs, such as marijuana, leads to the use of hard drugs (the Gateway Theory).
6.Legalizing drugs will send a message to children that drug use is acceptable.
But watching mommy and daddy pop pills for pain is ok for the kids to see or watching them get piss drunk every-night that's good for them or hey let's blow cigaret smoke in there face that's ok and legal. Gateway theory is stupid like I said the beer and smokes leads to drug usage.

IN RE: Russell J. FINLEY, Petitioner, v. Eugene L. NICANDRI, as County Judge of St. Lawrence County, Respondent.
-- May 25, 2000
Before:  CREW III, J.P., SPAIN, CARPINELLO, GRAFFEO and MUGGLIN, JJ.
Case & Leader (Henry J. Leader of counsel), Gouverneur, for petitioner.Eliot Spitzer, Attorney-General (Alicia R. Ouellette of counsel), Albany, for respondent.
Proceeding pursuant to CPLR article 78 (transferred to this court by order of the Supreme Court, entered in St. Lawrence County) to review a determination of respondent which revoked petitioner's pistol permit.
Based upon the report of a St. Lawrence County Deputy Sheriff regarding petitioner's agitated state while in possession of a loaded pistol when the officer responded to a report of poachers on petitioner's property, respondent issued an order suspending petitioner's pistol permit and notifying petitioner of his right to request a hearing prior to revocation of the permit.   The officer who served the order on petitioner reported that petitioner was abusive and made threats against several public officials, including respondent.   After a hearing at which documentary evidence was introduced and two Deputy Sheriffs, petitioner, petitioner's mother and petitioner's girlfriend testified, respondent concluded that there was good cause to revoke petitioner's pistol permit and he issued an order of revocation.   Petitioner thereafter commenced this CPLR article 78 proceeding to review respondent's determination and Supreme Court transferred the proceeding to this court.
 Inasmuch as respondent derived his authority to revoke a pistol permit from his position as County Judge (see, Penal Law § 400.00[11]&#82 01;), petitioner was required to commence this proceeding in this court pursuant to CPLR 506(b)(1)(see, Matter of B.T. Prods. v. Barr,   The defect affects the court's subject matter jurisdiction and, therefore, cannot be waived (see, Matter of Nolan v. Lungen, 61 N.Y.2d 788, 473 N.Y.S.2d 388, 461 N.E.2d 874).   It necessarily follows that, in the absence of subject matter jurisdiction over the proceeding, Supreme Court lacked the authority to exercise the transfer power conferred by CPLR 7804(g).   Nevertheless, we will treat the proceeding as though it originated in this court (see, Matter of Schnell v. Spano, 120 A.D.2d 669, 502 N.Y.S.2d 263).
 “The State has a substantial and legitimate interest and indeed, a grave responsibility, in insuring the safety of the general public from individuals who, by their conduct, have shown themselves to be lacking the essential temperament or character which should be present in one entrusted with a dangerous instrument”(Matter of Pelose v. County Court of Westchester County, 53 A.D.2d 645, 384 N.Y.S.2d 499, appeal dismissed 41 N.Y.2d 1008, 395 N.Y.S.2d 1028, 363 N.E.2d 1195;  accord, Waskiewicz v. New York City Police Dept., 211 A.D.2d 603, 604, 622 N.Y.S.2d 240).   Respondent is therefore “vested with broad discretion” in determining whether to revoke a pistol permit and “his resolution of factual and credibility issues is accorded great weight”(Matter of Brookman v. Dahaher, 234 A.D.2d 615, 616, 650 N.Y.S.2d 879).   Absent an abuse of discretion, respondent's determination will not be disturbed (see, id., at 616, 650 N.Y.S.2d 879).
 The reports and testimony of the Deputy Sheriffs supports the conclusion that petitioner lacks the requisite temperament and character to possess a pistol.   Petitioner was afforded ample opportunity to respond to the evidence against him and the testimony he presented to contradict that evidence created questions of credibility for respondent to resolve.   In the absence of anything in the record to demonstrate that respondent abused his discretion, the determination must be confirmed.
ADJUDGED that the determination is confirmed, without costs, and petition dismissed.

“The State has a substantial and legitimate interest and indeed, a grave responsibility, in insuring the safety of the general public from individuals who, by their conduct, have shown themselves to be lacking the essential temperament or character.

Where I live and work, this law means that if a person has a mental illness, and if they are in imminent danger of harming themselves or someone else, they can be put into a psychiatric hospital against their will.

I don't think if one reviews Russells past there would be any problem with putting him away
