Why is there a growing number of US States legalizing the use of Marijuana knowing that Marijuana is a known “Gateway” drug for the use of hardcore drugs?

States like Colorado, California and other States are legalizing the use of¬†Marijuana perfectly knowing that Marijuana is the “gateway” drug towards harder drugs like methamphetamine, heroine, cocaine, crack, pain pills, etc. So on one side States and Government officials are claiming to fight drug abuse, and on the other side, the same States and Government officials are promoting drug use. What the hell is going on? Why this double standard? Is it for tax money? Is it for the votes? Please explain.

JCarta, we no-longer have actual patriots in the public office today. I’m getting used to it. This era’s leaders are only self-serving, cynics who can not stand-up to such shameful impositions, shameful!

JCarter, don’t be a fool, nobody care about people’s safety or well being. It is only about the $ and the votes…

Yeah, I’m getting that Olivier…… getting that. Hurts like a dear one’s betrayal.¬† I wonder how someone safely sleeps in the night knowing that they’ve contributed to the downfall of their very own, including the future of their own families and children. I keep wondering whether this is hypocrisy or outright straight folly!

Love this! If all Americans reasoned objectively and logically like this, nothing would hold this country back from being great again.
