The only reason that marijuana is a gateway drug is because it is illegal. Drug dealers are already committing a crime by selling it, so why would they ID? Drug dealers also often sell other things, and don't discriminate to who they would sell to.What really concerns me is the number of youth becoming addicted to meth, coke and pills. As the father of teenage girls, who don't do drugs, it concerns me when my daughters tell me about the drug problems many of the kids they grew up with are developing. I have a friend and his daughter is destroying her health with pills. It is sad because I remember what a sweet little girl she was when several of us used to take our girls to the drive-in in Lexington when they were younger
A Columbia University center for drug abuse and addiction study shows that it is easier for kids to get drugs and pills than alcohol.
Regulate it, tax it, and take it out of the hands of the cartels and drug dealers that would sell it to kids. And hammer pill mill doctors, who are the equivellent of herion dealers.(because that's what those pills are, synthetic opioids.)
