Which is worse? Smoking pot or drinking alcohol?!

Whichever one is abused is worse. Both are worry free when used responsibly. When research is conducted on the use, abuse, and its effects of marijuana we can make a meaningful and fair comparison. Until then its just straight conjecture on any persons part to side with either one. Too many addicts of marijuana commit driving while intoxicated offenses but because they also had a beer or two, its the alcohol that is blamed. Potheads are lazy, etc. See just how easy it is to blame something for people's actions without first having research to learn and then conducting a fair comparison. I use alcohol in a responsible way and consider it safer.
Put another way, from above I can put this way.
Marijuana is worse. It impairs the user more, causes heavy reliance and addiction, loss of reasoning and motor skills, makes you sick the next day, etc. Alcohol impacts people differently, but the several times I have drank it is just made me hungry, calmed my nerves, and generally relaxed me.
" Plus have you ever heard of a THC overdose?" Marijuana addiction is real so I have heard of THC overdose. These things are dependent upon individual people. I have known good people become complete idiots by abusing marijuana. Until real and extensive research is conducted we will never know the full and complete benefits and harm marijuana presents. For now let's stop fooling ourselves that it is harmless, it is not.
There have been no known links of marijuana use to lung cancer. Unlike cigarettes, marijuana is purely natural. As a user of both for a long time, I would say they are equally as bad. On your first few uses marijuana will seem really fun and you will laugh and get the munchies a lot. However, the more frequently you use it those effects go away and then you will smoke and just feel really laid back and dumb for a couple hours. Alcohol is tough to take in moderation because once you get that buzz your body wants to maintain that feeling by drinking more and more until you are drunk. This usually leads to a hangover the next day which sucks.
All in all I guess it just depends on what you are doing as to which is better and which one is worse.
Smoking pot is worse because it is illegal.
Aside from that alcohol is worse all around.
It impairs the user more, causes heavy reliance and addiction, loss of reasoning and motor skills, makes you sick the next day, etc. Pot impacts people differently, but the several times I have smoked it is just made me hungry, calmed my nerves, and generally relaxed me. Plus have you ever heard of a THC overdose? I had friends go to the hospital for alcohol poisoning in college so know it is very easy to overdose on alcohol. I've never heard of a THC overdose. Also, alcohol can react negatively with many medications (have several friend whose children have died mixing pills and alcohol) but I've never heard of anyone mixing pot with medications and being killed, or in any way having their life threatened from pot.
And you don't have to smoke pot, there are some great edibles that don't have the negative health impacts that smoking causes.
Pot has medicinal qualities that can be used responsibly and help many people. It can help stimulate the apatite of cancer patients, ease pain, calm nerves, etc. Alcohol has no such claim and is only bad for you.
they are both i think.
smoking causes lung cancer
drinking alcohol is being under the influence,
i would say smoking pot because it cause other people to have problems from the smoke and from drinking, you just get hit and you will just can walk away from it. so smoking pot should be the answer
I believe their both just as bad, but if I had to choose one or thee other I guess I would say drinking. Because people that drink dont always know when to stop and their not in their right mind after and when you smoke pot your aware of what's going on
drinking alcohol.. they had something on history channel one time about legalizing marijuana and scientists had done research on it and found alcohol to be worse
alcohol would be my guess if it was long term use, but I believe marijuana can cause psychosis in some over a long period of time. pick your poison!!
Both, because you can develop cancer AND have a stroke.
Drinking alcohol because you need to rush to pee every 5 minute
smoking pot after drinking alcohol
Any type of smoking is worse. Just ask any doctor
