Your Questions About: Marijuana Is Not As Harmful As Alcohol

Robert asks…

If alcohol and tobacco are legal, then why not legalize marijuana too?

Alcohol consumption can lead to liver damage and alcohol poisoning.

Tobacco consumption can lead to various cancers.

But no one has ever died from marijuana use. It’s not nearly as harmful as alcohol, tobacco, or hard drugs like cocaine and heroin. Not to mention marijuana actually had medicinal value in alleviating pain for various illnesses.

So if alcohol and tobacco are okay, then why not make marijuana legal?
Tobacco contains nicotine which makes it highly addictive. Marijuana does not and is not addictive. So tobacco is actually a lot worse.

Potter answers:

Excellent question. I have never heard a good answer–there is no reason to criminalize marijuana.
