75. I don't know if there have been any studies done that
address that justabob. Interesting thought. I'm curious now about your question and am going to do some checking over the next few days. If I find anything I'll let you know if you'd like.

Nixon had a study done to prove how dangerous pot was and he was furious when it did not come out as he had hoped. Here's a link:

http://www.druglibrary.org/SCHAFFER/hemp/moscone/chap3....

I know from personal experience that every single person I know that has smoked pot or done harder drugs started with alcohol and/or cigarettes. Not one started with pot that I am aware of. I know many that smoke pot that have never touched any other drugs and some that never drink, though they tried it at one time when younger, way before they ever tried pot. I'm willing to bet that many here would tell the same story.

Another terrible consequence I have been hearing about and seeing, due to all of this ridiculous drug testing, is people that used to only smoke pot are now drinking instead. Some very fine people I knew have turned into horrible mean drunks from giving up pot for booze to keep their jobs. It has devastated their families and their lives. Oh, they have kept their jobs alright, but at a terrible price. It's apparently much cheaper to have raging alcoholics or junkies working for a company than those terrible potheads. I'm sure the medical costs will be much lower when the bills are tallied in the end. :sarcasm:

What a crock of feces this country is turning into. We seem to be regressing at an astounding rate.
