Biden says he won’t legalize marijuana because it may be a ’gateway drug’

Former Vice President Joe Biden defended his reasoning to not legalize marijuana on a federal level if elected president, saying there is not ’enough evidence’ as to ’whether or not it is a gateway drug.’ ’It’s a debate, and I want a lot more before I legalize it nationally. I want to make sure we know a lot more about the science behind it,’ he said in Las Vegas.

Biden's advisors are probably facepalming after that one. That's a horribly unpopular take nowadays.

Cannabis is what I call a gateway tool not drug. Drug dealers use their weed to lure you into a false sense of security so at some point during your relationship they can build your trust and upsell you on there harder substance that will make them more money if you legalize it you eliminate the gateway factor because pot stores wont being trying to push crack on you everytime you buy. Also I know a few people that started Drinking in bars then they get offered coke and next thing they're on heroin. Are we gonna make alcohol illegal because it can potentially be used as a gateway drug?

Ok boomer. There has been a sufficient amount of time and evidence to know if marijuana is a gateway drug or not. It's not. The problem is not the plant it's the people consuming the drugs; some are more prone to addictions than others and no matter what substance they start on they will find other things to up the experience. I do agree that addiction needs to be decriminalized and treated as a public health issue. Nations that have done that have reduced their expenses in criminal justice and health care overall. I don't care how much of a substance somebody has in their body when they are driving, I only care if they are driving safely and not harming anyone. Plenty of clean people can't even do that.
