If you have ever wondered why right-wings ban anything, it is easily explained by this phenomenon. You see, once something deviant, yet harmless is 'experimented with,' it leads to a crazy hunger for anything slightly resembling the questionable treat! This leads to a destructive lifestyle, a lot of pain accompanied with a deteriorating physical appearance, and death!
Leftist Deviant Hippeh: "Why is pot bad?"
Right-wing Nutjob: "The gateway effect!!!11Shiftasdf!! One bad thing leads to another..."
LDH: (sarcastically) "Oh... I see! Pot is a gateway effect like gay marriage would be to marriage with animals, underage children, and middle-easterns!"
