Legalize pot, and criminalize booze--guess what becomes your gateway drug? Addictive people will find a way. It's not marijuana; it's just people who are weak (in that regard), and they would get addicted to whatever it is.

With regard to the Honey Badger, I'm like someone else (previously), who said they aren't upset about the pot use... more so about what would get him dismissed (it's gotta be more than smoking dope).
Ignorant..really? Well I don't think you can deem something ignorant that has been backed by research.

"The vast majority of cocaine users (99.9%) began by first using a “gateway drug” like marijuana, cigarettes or alcohol.

"One study found that youth (12 to 17 years old) who use marijuana are 85 times more likely to use cocaine than kids who do not use pot, and that 60% of the kids who smoke pot before the age of 15 move on to
cocaine."
