Study Provides Further Evidence that Marijuana Is a Gateway Drug

A new study looking at alcohol, cigarette, and marijuana use among adolescents gives some interesting and helpful conclusions. Well, helpful conclusions if people will be willing to remove their cultural blinders concerning marijuana. Since the politically and culturally popular thing to do is to extol the virtues of the recreational use of marijuana, the study's sharp gateway-drug implications will most likely be a warning that is derided and unheeded.

Frankly, I don't really care if people smoke weed or not. To be clear, if asked, I'll warn against it. What bugs me, though, is that many who do choose to smoke weed deceive themselves (and others) about marijuana's potential for harm.

When I worked in a substance awareness program targeting eighth-graders, my co-workers and I could predict the pushback we would receive from the students: marijuana isn't addictive... marijuana doesn't cause any ...

Backwoods Duck Farmer had better take heed. There is mounting evidence that ducks are gateway birds to larger and increasingly addictive avians such as swans and geese and may even lead to dependence on emus and ostriches. You have been duly warned, BDF.

If you knew your child could develop early onset psychosis from use of marijuana, would get in line and say, sign me up? More young people are ending up in a psychiatric center, till the bills come in, then they’re out on the street, from using synthetic marijuana. The marijuana made today is probably 75-100% more potent, than dope bought 45 years ago. Legalization is what Mexican cartels hope for, they can invade and kill with impunity because the hippies in Colorado can’t move the money back to Mexico.

There is no addiction from which God cannot deliver a person. The hardest addictions to overcome are addiction to excuses (calling one’s bad habits a disease rather than sin) and addiction to self-justification.

This is just another, little, piece of the large puzzle...

There is no difference between cigarettes, alcohol, pharmaceutical drugs, natural drugs, over eating, or any other path to addiction, it's all bad...

Granted they do affect your daily life in different ways (depending on what it is), they all should be avoided. Cause once your in, it's hard to get out...

J4J wrote, “Eating food can be a gateway to obesity!” As you know, John, your hometown, Woodstock, is the gateway to Marietta. Marietta is the home of the Big Chicken, a 56-foot-tall image of a yardbird that for more than 60 years has beckoned people to come under its wings and stuff themselves with biscuits, taters and fried bird. Oh, the awful snares of addiction to Southern vittles that have entrapped so many people just because they couldn’t see anything wrong with driving through Woodstock!

... n the Journal of School Health could shed some light on this question. A team of researchers from Texas A&M and the University of Florida examined data from from 2,800 U.S. 12th graders interviewed for the Monitoring the Future study, an annual federal survey of teen drug use. They wanted to establish which substances teens typically used first.

They give away their findings in the title of their paper: "Prioritizing Alcohol Prevention: Establishing Alcohol as the Gateway Drug and Linking Age of First Drink With Illicit Drug Use." They found that "the vast majority of respondents reported using alcohol prior to either tobacco or marijuana initiation."...

The marijuana candy may help my son with seizures and behavior. The oil is always difficult to give him because he fights it. It taste bad. Like with anything, people will abuse it even if there is some good to it. Eating food can be a gateway to obesity!

I can testify that marijuana is quite useful. It has caused me to experience the lowest, most God-depraved states of anxiety and depression that I have ever known. However, God even used this for good as I have learned to cling to Him.

Marijuana was legal in the 30's as medicine until the drug company's and the government couldn't regulate it, if there is such a thing as "a gateway drug" it's alcohol plus human nature.
Besides the incredibly dangerous impacts it has on health and societal wellbeing that have been uncovered, well researched, and well documented since then. Leaches and blood letting don't get so much use anymore either.

Human nature, e.g. our tendency to sin based on the universal problem of total depravity, is one of the three biggest problems we face, along with the world and the devil. There is help for that, you know, through faith in Christ Jesus.

This has been known since the 70s. But the truth has been suppressed. Once a person suppresses his or her knowledge of the Most High (Romans 1), there is no telling the levels of depravity that person may sink into while pursuing a high. And here but by the grace of God go I.
