Now I just hear most opponents trying to make an argument for how MJ is more dangerous that Alcohol, or that it is the gateway- if there is any Gateway, it is alcohol... or maybe that Gateway ntoion is BS, and some people just get into drugs and experiment, some don't.
The Gateway argument is a case by case deal. Pot, alcohol, even cigarettes are a gateway for some people. For most others, not so. The whole argument gets jacked up when you start generalizing.
