As for myself having used pot, beer and hard liquior. I would personally prefer that my kids, grandkids would choose pot any day over beer and alchol. This is not to say that I am endorsing pot use by anyone. I am merely stating that: ""pot is the LESSER EVIL of all those choices ""....

While I admit I am a little wishy~washy on the pot issue, I still think it is a gateway drug. Like when you start drinking beer, and you decide to try liquor because it can get you drunk faster, and there is a variety of flavors.

One needs a certain mind~set to stay off drugs. One needs to feel good about themselves, and have the desire to be in total control of their lives. People on dope don't have this. They DON'T feel good about themselves, and they DON'T have control of their lives.

I have been around druggies (30+ years ago) and the one thing I remember is that they THOUGHT they were having fun~~giggling, laughing uncontrollably, heightened senses, etc. I hated it, and that is what saved me. I never took any hard drugs like H or C, just smoked some pot, and it got to be a big bore. I want to be IN control, not BE controlled.

I WILL AGREE THAT METH, H WORD AND HARD SUBSTANCES LIKE SYNTHETICS ARE A DANGER AND SHOULD BE AVOIDED AT ALL COST. TWO OF THE BIGGEST DANGERS HAS BEEN LIES TOLD BY THE DARE AND JUST SAY NO PROGRAMS ABOUT CANNABIS AND ONCE KIDS SEEN THOSE WEREN COMPLETE FAIRY TAILS THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS TRUE SO MANY MAY HAVE EXPERIMENTED. ALSO THE 2ND BIGGEST THREAT IS LOOSING YOUR LIFE AND RIGHTS TO A SYSTEM WHEN YOU MAY NEVER HAVE HARMED NO ONE BUT YOURSELF. THESE BESIDES OVERDOSE RESULTING INTO DEATH ARE THE REAL THREATS. THE DARE PROGRAM HAS CHOSEN NOT TO PERPETRATE THE CANNABIS LIES ANYMORE.SO WE HAVE A START. NOW WE NEED THIS TO BE WHAT IT IS A HEALTH ISSUE. BECAUSE THE DRUG THE ILLUSTRATED HERE(METH) IS SUCH A HEALTH CRISIS. iT IS NICE THIS PROGRAM EXISTS FOR HARD DRUG USE BUT IT EXISTS BECAUSE THE EDUCATION WAS FLAWED FROM THE BEGINNING. DECRIMINALIZE CANNABIS AND THEN USE THIS PROGRAM FOR THE DRUGS THAT CAUSE DEATH AS A DIRECT RESULT FROM USING THEM NOT A PLANT THAT CAN HEAL.
