Statistics show the new gateway drug is now officially prescription pills. They myth that cannabis was a gateway drug has been disproven repeatedly. "The mentality is that these prescription pills don't carry the stigma of illegal drugs because doctors prescribe them. But the truth is, pills are more deadly than heroin, cocaine, and meth combined." http://is.gd/WQrALg
Cannabis has no toxicity. Throughout history, it has caused ZERO deaths directly. Tobacco causes more deaths than all other drugs (legal or not) combined. Alcohol is next, causing more deaths than all other drugs combined (excluding tobacco). All illegal drugs combined cause about the same number of deaths as all prescription drugs combined. And cannabis causes no deaths at all. Ever. Unless it is combined with things that DO.
