COASTWATCH - again, you're wrong. Alcohol is the true gateway drug. No one get's stoned as says, "hey lets get some coke!" Drunk people ALWAYS pursue something stupid, it's the nature of the intoxicant. Stop believing 1950's propaganda.

Thanks a lot, local drug users. Nice company you keep and stick in our midst. Amazing how much discretionary money these people have for drugs, yet demand we use our tax dollars to provide all this extra care for them. Hope the "Cannabis Compliance Team is self-supporting. Good place for market incentives to be put to work.
