Marijuana Abuse?

Question by REMO: Marijuana Abuse?
I have been smoking marijuana for about 6-7 months now. In the past 3 months it has become a daily thing I usually smoke around 4-6 times a day. I’m only 15 and not am I only doing marijuana but Crystal Meth occasionally. I have no intentions of ever stopping the use of marijuana. I just wanted to do some research on what people think of minors and the use of marijuana and if people truley think that marijuana is the gateway drug?

Thank gawd I don’t have a reputation to uphold.

I don’t buy that gateway drug crap, I think there are people who want to get high, and people who like to get high and those people will try whatever drugs they get their hands on.

I know plenty of 50 year old potheads that on not on other drugs.

It’s all about what you want your life to look and feel like, and if you want it to look like a filthy drug house, a falling apart body and no meaningful connections to other people, then smoke crack and meth and shoot dope, but I dont reccamend it.

Firstly, I don’t think that the ‘gateway’ hypothesis has any merit. Statistics don’t show a causal relationship between marijuana use and use of other drugs. Secondly, I think you need to be very careful to moderate your usage so that it doesn’t interfere with your social or educational development.
