i made friends with a homeless man once, after he helped a friend of mine who was in a fight. everytime i saw him i would give him whatever change i had in my pocket, a few cigerettes and few cans of whatever beer i had on me at the time. we ended up putting him in touch with some other people who got him a house and he is steadily getting back onto his feet. the man is genuine

That guy...needs to take some action. He`s already got some good thoughts going on there.

The gateway is your mothers vagina. And it`s exit only if your not some kind of hick.
All I heard this fool utter was excuses.

Smilin Sam, I agree and it makes me really mad to see people incorrectly blaming an inanimate object for their own mistakes and foibles. For people who would end up traveling such a path, they will follow ANYTHING to get there, not just weed.
I am glad that this guy is taking control of his life though; good one! I`m rooting for him!

Haha, try that with any of the bums in my neighborhood and you`ll just get incoherent ramblings, too much sun maybe. Hey... that explains most of my comments too!

SmilinSam, have you ever asked yourself why you smoke pot? I bet your answer doesn`t fall far from this guy`s when he first started out.

The thing is, you can have a house and a job and still become addicted to hard drugs. I know a few people who started with drinking and smoking pot in their late teens, to have now graduated to harder drugs by their mid 30s. They all have homes, jobs and even started their own families.

All it takes in a big enough catalyst to send you snowballing.

And a touch of Jefferson Airplane.

Remember what the dormouse said;
"Keep Your Head!"

First off, you can blame anything as a `gateway.` video games, gambling on sports, cigarettes. That word, predisposed, is the key. People like this that don`t get counseling, like he just said, are more susceptible to turning to an addiction to cope with the turmoil that they have no clue how to release. Drugs are the easiest way.
Secondly, DRUGS, they make you `understand` the concept of god and the devil.

Even after watching this video I don`t understand how someone decides to start smoking crack. The name alone makes me think it`s unappealing.

Kinda makes you think about why why our laws punish them so harshly; as if causing more misery will cure what they`ve got.
