Marijuana is a GATEWAY Drug!

OK, a lot of you may disagree with this, but it's true. Studies have long proven this. Some recent ones just bring to light the true path that many users go down.

FACT: Medical Marijuana is a Gateway Drug


Research among people using prescribed and unprescribed medical marijuana show a startling amount of using of other drugs. Recently published, one study found that over 50% of people taking medical marijuana were taking one form of cancer or antibiotic medication, with 7% taking BOTH types of drugs. Another survey found that a large percentage "liked" taking both medical marijuana and their glaucoma medications at the same time. Although unpublished, a soon to be released report states that they have found 'hard evidence' that links medical marijuana with high rates of chemotherapy usage. Surely this is not just a coincidence!


Perhap most startling is a study involving over 1,000 seniors. This widespread survey found that almost 89% of people taking medical marijuana were also taking a hypertensive medication. Authors postulated that since elderly people often hang out in gangs, commonly referred to "nursing homes," that they experience a large amount of peer pressure to try new and different drugs.
