Yeah, I can't speak for the population at large...but alcohol always seemed like the more "gateway" of supposed gateway drugs to me. When I was much younger, if I were out drinking with friends I was prone to doing the crazy shit we all don't tell our kids about until they are out of the house. When I was stoned with those same friends the evening were much more chill.
Obviously I don't single-handedly represent the "majority" of people, but I admit to having a struggle understanding how it would be much different for anybody else.
