They say marijuana’s like a transition drug – its consumption makes the consumers try other harder drugs; this is a social perception, but nothing could be more untrue.
Why is marijuana related to hard drugs?
Marijuana’s been considered a drug which provokes the consumption of other drugs – many hard-drug consumers use marijuana too, but, actually, the majority of marijuana consumers doesn’t consume other drugs frequently.
Marijuana and other drugs
Usually, cannabis consumers don’t drink alcohol – altogether, the final effect’s not nice for regular marijuana consumer; anyway, marijuana-beer consumption’s kind of common – exciting drugs, such as cocaine, amphetamines or MDMA, aren’t usually mixed with marijuana.
When consuming stimulants, it’s about big time, trying to get the party to the top; this way, marijuana acts the other way round, so these consumers prefer to avoid its consumption – usually, this kind of hard drugs is mixed with alcohol (two drugs with much more common effects).
Besides, marijuana’s a drug for relax and peace, providing a quiet sensation which tends to make us stay at home or at peaceful places, so it doesn’t make you take hallucinogens (mushrooms, LSD, 2CB), drugs usually consumed at open places and more active situations such as festivals.
The other way round?
Obviously, marijuana is, and will be, related to consuming other harder drugs – occasional consumers of those drugs consume marijuana too, so, wrongly, their consumption is closely related (the facts go the other way round).
Usually, a hard-drug consumer doesn’t mind about taking soft drugs such as marijuana; nevertheless, marijuana consumers don’t get into hard-drug consumption (nothing to do with the substance they consume): we say soft drug because there’s no official precedent about death from marijuana consumption.
