CM Grosso: ‘Marijuana is Not A Gateway Drug’

CM David Grosso is correct. “Marijuana not a gateway drug.” A Rand Corp. Study 2002  reached same conclusion.

More good sense coming from David Grosso as tells CBS-DC that weed “is not causing massive accidents or causing people to go crazy on the streets. And it’s just leading a lot of kids right to jail” Grosso is correct, the “gateway” argument has been studied and dismissed. Here and elsewhere.

Grosso gives a powerful argument in favor or decriminalization:

“For too many years we’ve put non-violent drug offenders behind bars, disproportionately affecting African-American males, especially in the District of Columbia. It’s time for us to step up and stop that from happening. The way to stop that is decriminalization.”
