CANNABIS CULTURE – On many drug addiction programs, “abstinence” is the keyword. The reasoning? Perhaps something akin to “Using cannabis keeps you in a drug-using environment, and potentially makes you susceptible to using other drugs (gateway theory). Also, cannabis is a drug, and you cannot use drugs to get off other drugs.”

The DEA is right in saying there's not enough scientific evidence about the medical uses of cannabis. But that's because the government's paranoia about the plant makes legitimate research on possible benefits all but impossible.
