Why does everyone think marijuana is any worse for you than alcohol?!

Question: Why does everyone think marijuana is any worse for you than alcohol!?
if you will do some research you will find that smoking weed is less harmful for you than drinking !. for one thing weed is a plant that grows from the earth it's a part of nature man ! and alcohol is a man made process & it is a drug but nobody thinks of it being a drug just cuz it's legal and that's B!.S!.

dude i asked the same question like 3 days ago and i completely agree I'm sick of stupid people saying how it is the worst thing n the world while clearly many legal substances are infact a lot worse for you!. I'd personally rather hang around people who are high on pot then drunk, i mean drunk people get violent, but people who are high on pot just sit on the couch and laugh for 10 hours, plus no matter how much pot you smoke you can never OD but we hear of college kids who die of alcohol poisoning all the time!. and for all the people who say pot is bad give me examples, i know it kills brain cells but a lot less than a night of binge drinking!. and they use it for medicinal purposes plus if they legalized pot the prisons would be less crowded and the government could tax it and maybe help improve the economy!. Some say it's illeagal because alcohol is a white man's drug and white people in the 1930's and 1940's were racist so they banned marijuana, which was considered a "Mexican and black" drug!. Marijuana is completely natural and totally American (George Washington used to be a hemp farmer)!. I think we should regulate it like alcohol and tobacco!. You aren't allowed to make your own alcohol or tobacco without the proper license!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Ok, first of all, just because something is a plant does not make it inherently good for people!. Go roll around in poison ivy and tell me it's great for your skin because it's a plant!. Smoke some and let me know how that goes!.

Alcohol is also a part of nature!. Man cannot make alcohol, it can only be made by yeast!. It does this by consuming sugars and converting them into CO2 and alcohol!. Man does encourage this process and makes alcoholic products!.

All that said, people think marijuana is bad because of misinformation spread by the government!. It was outlawed mainly for political reasons!. You can look that up yourself!.

Basically, people are taught from a very young age that it is bad, and on top of that it is illegal!. That is why most people think it is worse than alcohol!. End of story!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Cannabis is like tobacco, can cause metastatic lung cancer, foreign studies have shown!. It's not well publicized due to it's illegality, therefore it cannot be legally studied, and those who get lung cancer form smoking it are generally older and don't want to admit they smoked marijuana!. So They are equally dangerous, due to marijuana's lesser known effects!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Ignore the straight edge *****!. Marijuana is FAR more dangerous for you than alcohol for the sole reason that if they catch you with possession they'll haul your *** off to jail!. Other than that, yea, marijuana has NO negative effects, and alcohol can be chemically addictive and kill your liver!. 'Nuff said!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I ponder this question everyday!. lets see, what does alcohol damage!.!.!.!. your liver!. your liver is a very vital organ that purifies toxins in your body!. so that'd be the last thing you'd ever want to go out and damage!. Cannabis on the other hand, if consumed through a vaporizer is practically harmless!. it doesn't kill braincells!. it just stimulates them!. how many people die from cannabis!? none that I have ever heard!. dependance!? slim to none, for me at least!. should it be legalized!? yes!. and regulated just like alcohol is!. its quite a shame imo!. I can go on and on, but I dont want to waste my high typing all night!. peace!Www@FoodAQ@Com

You seem to forget that alcohol is a product of fermentation, a process that occurs in nature!. It is not man made!. You could actually say the creation of alcohol is man controlled to create the desired taste and effect!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

i agree to a point!.!.!.at least i don't remember ever hearing of a person being killed by a buzzed driver!.!.!.man!.!.!.i'm an old hippie btw!.!.!.been there!.!.!.done that!.!.!.but i have been so high at times that i didn't know front from rear!.!.!.maybe that's why i put my pants on backwardsWww@FoodAQ@Com

Im against both!. People like you who say its okay to do one thing because the other is worse are delusional!. Their both bad!. Deal!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Well since I LEGALLY can't get in trouble for drinking alcohol, I choose that over pot!. But believe me, as soon as the feds OK pot, I will be putting my bong to use!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

"Everyone" doesn't think that!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Oh I got an idea!.!.!.!. MAYBE IT IS!!! If you do it stop and if you don't do it then don't startWww@FoodAQ@Com

Both are bad for you!. I just wish it would be legal!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

yeah i agree especially if you use a water bong it purifies most of the impurities Www@FoodAQ@Com

ya then stop drinking beer and smoking pot so that there is no harm done

hmm ive only heard this about 154 times now :DWww@FoodAQ@Com
