Some people believe that cannabis is a 'gateway drug' and think that cannabis users are more likely to go on to use 'harder' drugs such as heroin although there is no evidence to support this belief. People who use cannabis regularly and heavily often come to feel a psychological need for the drug or may rely on it in order to become more sociable.
