How is marijuana a gateway drug? I personally smoke and intake marijuana, it helps me in lots of ways but that s not the point. I am not looking for a better high or even interested in anything stronger I am very content with marijuana. I personally think marijuana is not a gateway drug but the mind is what leads to stronger drugs, that the mind is at a weak state and craves more. I have never had that cross my mind to try any drugs, I get a spiritual high every time as well. So why do they say marijuana is a gateway drug when really the mind is the one that s weak, the mind is the gateway to stronger drugs. Can you please help me wrap my head around this?

Last week, I had a drug test because my doctor thinks that I m looking for pain meds for my Cluster headaches, and I failed. It showed oxycodone , or oxycontin in my system when all I have ever taken is tylenol 1 s for my pain. No doctor seems to believe me about the headaches... Anyways, he prescribed me amitryptiline and I took them as well before the test(not taking them anymore as they are useless for clusters) but now I have to fight to prove that I m not an addict when those are the only drugs I have ingested(I do smoke marijuana as well, and it DOES help with the pain of clusters, and frequency). All I ever wanted from this guy was a referral to a headache clinic, and to start to get my life back on track after suffering for 19yrs, and only being diagnosed in the emergency room last year by an amazingly knowledgeable nurse. Question is: Can these 3 substances in any combination come back as a positive for opiates, and more specifically the Oxy-type drugs?

My husband has been on Lipitor and Avalide to control his cholesterol and blood pressure. We have been trying to conceive for three years. His sperm analysis last year was pretty bad, with low counts and poor morphology. I keep hearing that it could be his medications that are causing the problem, but I can't find any information online. His physician refuses to consider the possibility. Can the problem lie with his blood pressure and/or cholesterol medicine? If so, are they any safe medicine that he can take while we are trying to conceive?
