Reefer madness is alive, compliments of Ken Lane. The gateway theory
is the bread and butter of fear-mongering authoritarians. He cackles
in his letter how "addiction" is caused by the infamous marijuana
drug. His is a repressive ideology of blaming marijauna users for the
ills of society.

Get rid of marijuana and no more addicts, huh? I've heard those
marching orders before. Get rid of communists, ecologists and hippies
and no more poverty. Get rid of blacks, browns and yellows and no more
crime. Get rid of Jews, gypsies and gays and no more vice. Sound familiar?
