Like any other drug, if you're smoking weed more often and openly, you're probably hanging out with people who do the same. The same thing goes for smokers and alcoholics, who seem to be more socially acceptable than marijuana users even though the long term health risks are as bad or worse. The theory of marijuana being a "gateway drug" isn't any more realistic than saying someone who smokes cigarettes or drinks alcohol will go on to use other drugs. Some people who use marijuana don't use other drugs, while others do.

Marijauna in itself does not have the horrible long term physical effects such as heroin, methampetamines, or certain prescription drugs. In some cases it can be pyschologically addictive, so if you make the decision to quit, it may be harder to do so if most of your friends continue to smoke it around you.

Marijuana has two general effects on most people in social situations. First, it can be like having a beer and just "loosen you up" and let you relax; creating a softening of anxiety and making you feel happy. Second, it can react with a person's system in the completely opposite way; making you impatient, anxious, and edgy. Which general reaction you have is based on as many factors as there are people in the world. If you try marijuana, take it easy and keep your social event small and relaxed.
