There are various situations and circumstances that contribute to the growing problem of homelessness in America. According to Pastor Phil Kwiatkowski, president of Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, the factor that most often leads to homelessness is drug use and addiction. With this reality in mind, why would anyone think that legalizing recreational marijuana is a good idea?
In this video, Pastor Kwiatkowski relates his experience with the connection between homelessness and drug use, specifically marijuana, through the stories of the teens and adults who have come to Pacific Garden Mission to find help and hope. Despite what legal weed proponents would have you believe, marijuana is addictive and it most certainly is a gateway drug that leads to the use of heroin, cocaine, and other “hard” drugs.
