America’s exit drugs

National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Director, Dr. Nora Volkow, and former National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director and recently named “Science Advisor to the President,” Dr. Francis S. Collins recognized in 2017, America’s gateway drugs are pharmaceutical opiods.

Their more significant insight, however, is that there is powerful evidence that cannabis and (I would submit) psychedelics can be America’s “exit drugs.”
