The fact is people who have at least tried marijuana once are in the majority.
I'm not sure how much weight this statement actually has. It is a step i guess but I'm afraid it wouldn't sell me on anything and I'm for it. What will big brother say? "It was just a phase" "Yeah, I smoked! but I didn't inhale!" "it was just a mistake" It also raises the question.... How many tried it again? How many still do? And so on.
On the flip side as I'm typing my response I see that this quote does have some merit since many are hiding and lie when a survey asks if you smoke.
A great example would be to go get a physical or even go to the dentist. They ask if you smoke. Some may say “yea, can't kick the habit, I had a cig on the way here!" Others might just lie. Sad really but most can't stand up to a bully, How are they going to stand up against "the man?"
