A lot of people misunderstand how marijuana is a gateway drug.
When people start smoking it they don't end up needing something more powerful than it so they move on to other drugs. It's not like that at all.
It's just that when someone first experiments with marijuana it opens them up to a new lifestyle. People will often think that since this illegal drug isn't as bad as the government has made it out to be that the other ones might not be so bad either. Then they usually just get their logic distorted by doing the other drugs or just plain get hooked on them since some drugs like cocaine only take one time to get addicted(and the addiction often lasts for life).
This definitely doesn't happen with a lot of the people who smoke weed though. It is most likely a result of excessive experimentation, which usually starts with the weakest of the taboo drugs: marijuana.

I know this may sound stupid in many different kind of ways, but you've never heard "Don't do drugs until your married", have you!?
I was being sarcastic though earlier...
I got nothing...
Legalising the drug will obviously increase the usage. Recreational usage of marijuana can lead to big problems. Schizophrenia, psychosis... that shit messes you up. So yeah, I believe that legalising the usage of the drug will increase the amount of people negatively affected by it. I mean sure, if you want it now you can get it fairly easily, but it's not like it's sold in supermarkets... and it takes a bit of effort to get.
I just have a feeling that not many people as you think will do marijuana when it's legalized will. Because people think it's like "cool" when your doing something illegal and stuff, well that's the impression I get from people in my school.
ROB, you could go to my school and they will throw a pound of weed on your face before you ask, for free.
