The conservative right likes to label Cannabis a gateway drug.

This is not true.  Most people who use do so to help with sleep or pain.  And even more never use another other drugs.  Most regular users don’t even drink much alcohol.  Studies have proven that cannabis is safer than beer and spirits. The good news is that the word is getting out.

Getting high makes you lazy.

This is also not true.  There are different types of the plant that you can smoke and many people find that it helps make them more productive.  Especially users that use it to sleep.  Try not sleeping for a few days your not going to be very productive.
