Riddle me this; Why does someone who says he thinks that cannabis should only be used medically even try to pretend to advocate for recreational use? And then take jabs at recreational users and say they can't sign their name when they are high?
Everyone can see right through this propaganda. You spewed out the whole 'cannabis as a gateway drug' like a hater TV commercial.
Thanks for the examples of cannabis ignorance to shoot down. At least you as valuable as a bad example.
I don't advocate for recreational use. I advocate for legalization. I strongly suspect the "recreational use" term was started by the corporate media as propaganda to slow down legalization. Recreational use creates the image of people getting recklessly high for purely, self-centered, pleasure. Because of this image, those people who do not intoxicate themselves on anything legal or illegal are going to oppose it and vote against it. Now the term "legalization" says something else in my mind. This means ending criminal penalties and prison sentences that cost tax paying citizens, but make money for law enforcement, corrections, lawyers, the courts and politicians. Legalization also means regulation and taking marijuana out of the hands of criminals, gangs and mafias who are behind serious violence and the corruption of the foregoing government officials in our society.
As far as the gateway drug idea goes, I can see you don't even understand what it really means by your post. I was a product of the late 1960s and early 1970s. I and my friends all tried alcohol and cigarettes way before we used cannabis and hallucinogens. The cannabis and hallucinogens came about as a part of the counter-culture movement of the youth against the Vietnam war and the government during that era. That was the gateway. You can actually say Nixon and his policies were the gateway to those drugs back then. Gateway to me is a prescription to Vicodin and Oxycontin leading to heroin addiction. You can't argue against that. Got it?
