! Is there any truth to the Gateway Theory? This theory suggests that Marijuana is a stepping stone to other, harder drugs. I felt it was important to have an episode on this theory because some politicians still truly believe in it. That you are statistically likely to do harder drugs if you smoke Cannabis, thus Cannabis is a 'Gateway' to the hard drugs. Today on Lex's World we tackle the flaws, as well as the legitimate side... of the Gateway Theory. And we go a step further than just disproving the Gateway Theory; not only is there no causation between Marijuana and Harder Drugs; but that it is possible to greatly reduce the correlation too by legalizing.
