• Gateway Theory

    Tennessee Representative Steve Cohen helps educate FBI Director Robert Mueller about the failed Drug War, particularly the debunked theory that cannabis is a “gateway drug”:

    A scientific theory consists of a statement that can be supported by experimental and observational evidence. The widely-held “gateway theory” of drug use, despite being a cornerstone of national drug policy in the United States, has long been abandoned by the scientific community due to a lack of evidence showing that cannabis users proceed to use other drugs. We believe it’s time for our federal laws to reflect scientific fact rather than unsupported rumor.
