Eighty-five percent on heroin started with marijuana

As much as I enjoy raising the ire and disdain of citizens all over this county, and country, with my admittedly neo-conservative views, I urge you to please read what I write, not what you thought I wrote.

I did not say that 85 percent of people who smoke pot go on to use heroin, crack, etc. I said 85 percent of people who use heroin, crack, etc. started out using pot.
