Medical studies are a dime a dozen these days, with more of them proving to be erroneous than not, so take this with a grain of salt: A federal study has found that cannabis is not only safer than tobacco but 100 times less toxic than booze. Instinctively I'd say that I'd have to agree with the study based on all of the other evidence including people dying daily from smoking and drinking, but cannabis ramains the illegal item of the three. What gives?
We can argue that in the past pot has been illegal for racist and economic reasons, but it was legal for many more years than not. As it makes its way toward legality state by state, you have to wonder how many lives were ruined not by the drug itself but by criminalizing it in the first place.
Do you think pot should be legal across the board? Which is harder on your body, weed or booze? Share your thoughts in the chat.
