I was just listening to NPR while taking a shower tonight. It was "NPR Live from the State Fair."

"I'm not in favor of marijuana's legalization. Some people say that it isn't that harmful, but the more we talk about legalizing it, the more kids will think it's OK. And kids smoking marijuana is not OK and kids need to know that. There's a really big concern that smoking marijuana is a gateway drug to cigarette smoking, and that is not OK."
Yep, only on crazy, liberal NPR is marijuana a gateway drug, not to cocaine, or meth, or acid....but to the horrific evils of tobacco! You can't make this stuff up.
