Marijuana Domino Effect?



By Don Morgan 

Activists may be celebrating--but addiction experts are worried now that recreational marijuana use has been legalized in Colorado--with Washington State set to follow suit in the coming days.  

Robb Kelly told 550 KTSA News every patient he's treated during his career started their road to heavy drug use by smoking marijuana. 

"It definitely, definitely is a gateway drug. Everybody we asked... marijuana was the drug they started out on" Kelly said, adding many laws attached to legal pot will be tough to enforce. 

"What happens when they get pulled over for DUI? How do the police tell if you've been using it today or two weeks ago--because it stays in your system" Kelly said.
