Some substance abuse experts are afraid that Colorado’s new marijuana law will lead to a rise in addiction and I argue that is simply untrue because the vast majority of pot smokers never go on to use harder drugs. To call marijuana a gateway drug is illogical. I was invited on Anderson Cooper’s AC360 show to debate Dr. Drew on the subject. Watch this video if you care about decriminalization, addiction, drug hysteria, and drug education.
Dr. Drew and Carl Hart, Columbia University psychology professor and author of “High Price”, debate whether pot is a gateway drug.
