Mr. Dever provides proof that cannabis causes irrational and
delusional thinking in those that don't use it. The only "gateway"
associated with cannabis is caused by prohibition in that because it
is sold by criminals, the same criminals also sell other drugs.

Mr. Dever also does not appear to understand statistics and is quoting
correlation as causal stats. Using his methodology we could show that
99 per cent of murderers drank milk as a child. Just like the
statistics he cites, this does not mean that one causes the other,
they are simply correlated and meaningless to use to form public policy.
