i think it is mistaken to have magical "make you do other drug" powers  for these reasons

1. it is one of most well know and available and least harmful drugs  thus will be tried most likely BEFORE other more harmful or tarnished of reputation drugs  by those who ALREADY fit teh personality profile of a person who is willing to try drugs and thus having first tried the least harmful  when they try the next harmful its not the first..

no magic pwoers

2.  those who are afraid of drugs then get pressured into / ccurious  or wahtever the fuck reason epople smoke weed for. well they will smoke it and realize nthat they didn't grow horns or murder their siblings while humping the family house pet  and then think "fuck i've been lied to! maybe the other ones arn't harmful either"

and then of course  experimentation proceeds

no magic powers, just a good example of a drug that doesn't make you grow horns and murder your siblings while humping teh family hosue pet

I smoked a cigarette and drank vodka before I ever tried MJ (I was like 8 lol)

So really they were my gateway "drugs".

caffeine is psycho-stimulant

Who bumps an 8 year old thread?  I'd suggest a new one now.

Marijuana got me into mushrooms and such, if I hadn't tried marijuana I doubt i'd have tried acid or mushrooms or DMT or any other drug for that matter...  Sure it can be seen as a gateway, but I'd consider it more of a curiousity pique than a gateway.

In my opinion pot is definately not a gateway drug. I have been smoking it for quite some time now and i still stick to mushrooms and liqour.

I cant say i havent tried any prescription drugs but that was only one time and before i even really got into smoking pot, it kind of annoys me when people preach that marijuana is a gateway drug but really it varies between different people.

That's absolutely correct, marijuana is a gateway drug. I experienced the gateway phenomena personally.

This is one of those things I think I debated in high school that's a totally 2 sided issuse. Weed is not really addictive and you can stick to it... but really tobacco and alcohol are what people try first I think.

I also think if I never smoked weed I would have never dreamed of trying lsd mushrooms molly etc because they are a hell of a lot different/stronger.  The only gateway weed takes you to is your fridge bed, or into a deeper consciousness and being :mushroom2::rasta::mushroom2:

Nah, there are many people who just stick to weed their choice. I have tried other "harder" drugs but I actually do my research and use responsibly.

in a sense ye i think weed is a gate way drug. you see you whole life throught school and tv th governmnt and the teachers around you fill your head with how evil drugs are and ho they are so dangerous an ruin your lifeand when you smok weed fo the firt time theres nothing lik it. you realize everything everyone has been drilling into you head is a bunch propoganda and lies. it make you question whether o not theyv been lieing to you abou eveyother drug. so at least in my case after smoking weed it opened my as to he trutg tht not all drugs are actually drugs and garmful to you or the people around you. dont get me wrong i mean shit like crystal an crack are no thong that should be even considered as a possibility but aftee smoking weed at least in my case i decided go seek out the truth for myself and research real info and eventually do other things like shrooms lsd and mdma. so yeah i guesweed is a gateway becauss if i didnt smoke weed id still be in the grasp of th terroristic tactic of my government to brainwash me against all drugs.

IMO cigarettes is the gateway drug to addiction, they set your brain up for your mood based on chemical dependence, ie no cigarette can't relax or concentrate. Even though I do know drug addicts that don't smoke. I also know drug addicts that don't smoke Mary.

That and also the add/ADHD meds that doctors are so fond of prescribing for kids. Every single kid I knew that abused them back in school are smoking meth now as adults, coincidence? I think not.

First drug is a gateway drug, marijuana just happens to be a lot of people's first drug.

It's definitely a gateway drug.  Until I smoked pot, I hadn't finished high school, entered university, obtained my two degrees in engineering, raised a family and started my successful business.  I would recommend this gateway drug to everyone. :thumbup:

Coffee is a gateway drug, beer is a gateway drug, cigarettes are a gateway drug. People who are predisposed to experimentation are going to fucking do drugs it's as simple as that, you can't blame it on the damn drug.

So if America truly believed in the gateway drug theory, ANYTHING with any attributes of a gateway drug would be illegal. There's more holes in this 'theory' than I can count.

Amen RR.  And schwarg for that matter.  The war on drugs and this terminology is ridiculous nonsense.
