is marijuana a gateway drug yes or no

In my opinion marijuana is not a gateway drug but then again i think it also depends on the person and also the environment they live in.the federal government for example thinks marijuana is a gateway drug they have it listed as a schedule 2 drug when drugs like lsd and meth are a schedule 1.So doesnt that mean that the federal government is saying that its better for you to do meth than to smoke pot.there are some people who just want to listen to music and get high and smoke then there are others who try to get a better high everytime and eventually go to other drugs.marijuana isnt even a drug its a plant  it grows from mother earth and if you just happen to light it up it will do certain things for you.Marijuana even can be used medically  for cancer patients,people with disorders like bipolar or add it can even help with cramps aches all sorts of things.which these days if you use a normal drug a doctor would prescribe they will do more harm then good just look at some of these tv comercials they spend more time talking about all the side effects than the medicine itself whats up with that and pot is illegal still really.  heres some interesting blogs i read about marijuana as a gateway drug.

Medical marijuana is all the rage in the 14 states that have it legalized, but it’s quite difficult to attain a medical marijuana card if you don’t know exactly what loopholes you have to go to through to get it.
  1. Your first step is to determine whether you’re in one of the 14 states that have medical marijuana.
  2. Next, you need to decide if you have one of the medical conditions that are treatable for medical marijuana. You may notice that some of these conditions have some thin boundaries, like depression for example. So it may be easier than some other conditions to persuade your doctor that you need medical marijuana.
  3. After you’ve decided whether your medical condition is treatable by medical marijuana you will need to contact your doctor about it. If your doctor is a good doctor he will help you decide what is right for you as well as the pros and cons of medical marijuana, the benefits you may receive from it as well as all the laws surrounding it in your states, like how many plants you can have, etc, and what the next steps are to help you procure your medical marijuana card. Unfortunately, due to the legality issues with medical marijuana on the Federal level a majority of doctors will not advocate it or give you a prescription for it, but lucky for you there are sites online that can help you find medical marijuana doctors. The one that I have linked to is just for California, but you can do a Google search for medical marijuana doctor + your state to help you find directories of doctors that will be glad to help in your quest for medical marijuana.
  4. Get your doctor to write a statement and/or prescription that he recommends medical marijuana to treat your ailment. If your doctor will not give you a statement contact the THC Foundation, they have several medical cannabis clubs in different states that support medical marijuana and will be able to help you either find a doctor, or get your statement from your doctor.
  5. You will also need to check with your county/state office to figure out if you need any additional documentation to get your medical marijuana card. Some places will ask for proof of residency while others will need to verify your ID.
  6. Once you have all that in order go to a medical marijuana dispensary to purchase your medicine. Eat or smoke and enjoy your high quality medical cannabis.
  7. Medical marijuana is just the first step to legalization. Marijuana is not a drug, it’s a plant and should be treated like the rest of the plants and herbs, especially since it is so beneficial to treating painful medical conditions.

Medical Marijuana

In 1972, the US Congress placed marijuana in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act because they considered it to have "no accepted medical use." Since then, 16 of 50 US states and DC have legalized the medical use of marijuana.

Proponents of medical marijuana argue that it can be a safe and effective treatment for the symptoms of cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, pain, glaucoma, epilepsy, and other conditions. They cite dozens of peer-reviewed studies, prominent medical organizations, major government reports, and the use of marijuana as medicine throughout world history.

Opponents of medical marijuana argue that it is too dangerous to use, lacks FDA-approval, and that various legal drugs make marijuana use unnecessary. They say marijuana is addictive, leads to harder drug use, interferes with fertility, impairs driving ability, and injures the lungs, immune system, and brain. They say that medical marijuana is a front for drug legalization and recreational use.One of my questions is why is weed listed as a schedule 1 drug and lsd meth are listed as schedule 2 which means that weed is worse than lsd doesnt make any sense.
