RE: EDITORIAL, "No to pot ticketing." Assuming pot is a gateway drug
is absolutely ignorant. There are so many ways to look up facts in
this day and age and you spout off that marijuana is a gateway drug
with not one credible study to back it up. There are none for your
information. There are some statistics that say something like 80% of
hard drug addicts started off smoking marijuana but what you don't
know is that 80% of pot smokers stop at pot and they don't even try
hard drugs. All pot seems to be a gateway to is the black market.
