The gateway drug theory has been debunked over and over. A simple Google search will provide a wealth of information on the topic. The relationship between marijuana and harder drugs is correlation, not causation. People who end up using harder drugs will start with "safer", more accepted and more available drugs, like marijuana, alcohol and nicotine. Those with a propensity to use harder drugs will, while most marijuana users will never do so.

It’s the greatest gift we have - to bear their pain without breaking. And it’s born from the most human power: hope.
