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.
