CrOtALiTo,
Gateway drug = "gateway" es un modificador o adjetivo (o complemento del nombre) mientras que "drug" es el nombre. Así, en español tiene que ser "droga de entrada"... no al revés...

Estoy de acuerdo con Alec. "De iniciación" es el término más común (de hecho, nunca he oído "de entrada"). En México, hace unos 5 años, se decía que la droga de iniciación entre la gente joven era el éxtasis... no sé en estos días si siga siendo así.

Gracias, tiene sentido. (En los 80 y antes creo que era la "hierba"... supongo que va cambiando...)

Probablemente lo siga siendo, como "droga blanda" y relativamente barata.
Pero los muchachos conseguían (o consiguen) el éxtasis más o menos fácilmente en restaurantes, bares y discotecas. Se puso de moda muy rápidamente, porque tiene "la ventaja" de que no huele y se vendía en forma de pastillas de colores que pasaban por dulces, así que sus padres no lo detectaban a la primera.

paco = pasta base de cocaína

droga fumable elaborada con residuos de la purificación de la cocaína, anfetaminas, alcaloides químicos y bicarbonato, muy barata y altamente adictiva.
