Will cannabis users move on to heroin?

TumwaterApril 3, 2014 

I immediately agreed with Will Wyatt’s letter to the editor saying enough is enough about The Olympian’s coverage of the pending marijuana trade in Washington state. I thought for a minute I was reading a copy of “High Times,” a magazine that has glorified marijuana use for decades.

Today’s paper reported on some serious meth and heroin dealers arrested in Tenino who both have long histories of drug-related felony convictions. I wonder if they started with marijuana use before moving up the addiction chain?

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
