Thank you Ron Paul. Here is a clip with Ron Paul debating with Steven Baldwin about the legalization of drugs. Each statement Baldwin makes is pretty much the age-old argument against drug legalization, and for each statement I also have a response.
Baldwin says that marijuana is a gateway drug:
In a study at the University of Pittsburgh they found that smoking marijuana is not the “gateway drug” which leads to more drug abuse , but rather the social situation that one is in leads to different types of drug use. Alcohol and tobacco are just as, if not more, commonly than marijuana.
