Cannabis for Beginners: Why Cannabis is NOT a Gateway Drug

Anti-cannabis crusaders often dispel the false theory that cannabis is a gateway drug, leading consumers to try harder drugs, like heroin. The truth of the matter is, however, that while some people who end up trying more dangerous substances tried cannabis before those substances, cannabis itself does not prime your brain for other drugs. What the gateway theory fails to take into account are factors like mental health, social groups, poverty, and the role of other, legal drugs like tobacco or alcohol. What's more, in the midst of the opioid crisis, cannabis could even be seen as an exit drug, helping those dependent on harder substances ween off them.
