    Weed is mentally more damaging in terms of the links to schizophrenia, paranoia, exacerbating mental illnesses etc. whereas alcohol is much harder on the body physically.

    Alcohol dulls the mind aswell quite massively. People rarely get in to fights after cannabis or e, infact very often they see things from a different perspective. Apart from the schizophrenia risk widespread cannabis use would probably improve society. Alcohol however is probably the single worst affliction affecting western society today.

    Fighting from alcohol really isn't as big a problem as people make out. How many people drank in the last year? Millions. How many of those got in a fight as a result of alcohol? Very few. Millions of people drink everyday and don't fight. Even when it does happen, pissed up lads fighting is hardly a threat to wider society.

    Its police resources that could be better used elsewhere. Then there is stuff like ONS and teen pregnancy (which might be triggered by weed aswell though idk) which are massive risks with alcohol. Women and alcohol aswell are just a huge no no and mothers shouldnt ever be anywhere near the stuff.

    Weed, I would say. Drugs were always considered as worse by myself. Thus people who are stoned are worse than the ones who are drunken.

    Okay, stirctly speaking, you are right. Nevertheless I make a difference between semiluxury foods which contain a certain amount of psychoactive drugs and pure substances like weed for instance.

    There is no reason to be offensive, so calm down.

    Doesn't seem like a sensible way of looking at it, that would make a cake laced with cyanide less bad than pure weed.

    I have considered this as an offensive, yeah. Just because I have another (wrong) view for alcohols.
