  • I agree with PP

  • No for both. If you are going to do hard drugs, you're going to do them whether or not you smoked pot. Plenty of people cheat without looking at porn and plenty of people look at porn and never cheat.
    It's just excuses for bad behavior because no one wants to take responsibility for their screwups.

  • Yes and yes- but not in every instance. Weed smokers will sometimes seek a bigger high that what they are getting from the MJ and that leads to bigger and more dangerous drugs. People who look at porn will sometimes seek out other men/women other than their mates to act out what they see in porn. It can go either way.

  • I think both are invalid statements

    Answer by admckenzie at 9:06 PM on Jun. 27, 2010

  • To me, the answer is no and no... but not for the standard reasons. I see marijuana as a drug and porn as cheating, no gateway about it. I know that marijuana isn't as serious as some other drugs, but it's just as illegal and you are throwing a lot away if you get caught. My stance on porn is more religious in nature, and so long as my husband and I agree, I think my views are fine and I don't need to convince anyone else to agree with me.

  • Nope. It's call self control. Some ppl have it, some don't.

  • Just FYI marijuana is no longer illegal mearly controlled. If you can get a dr in certain states to write a perscription its no longer illegal, just like percocet its a controlled substance.

  • The reason pot can be a gateway drug is because the person you're buying from has a vested interest in getting you hooked on something more addictive and more expensive. A good reason to legalize it.
