Preliminary animal studies alleging that marijuana "primed" the brain for other drug-taking behavior have not been replicated, nor are they supported by epidemiological human data. Statistically, for every 104 Americans who have tried marijuana, there is only one regular user of cocaine, and less than one user of heroin. Marijuana is clearly a 'terminus' rather than a gateway for the overwhelming majority of marijuana smokers." *[http://www.norml.org/index.cfm?Group_ID=3418#question7 "Critics claim that marijuana is a 'gateway drug.'
