Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol
Every objective study on marijuana has concluded that it is far safer than alcohol and cigarettes for the consumer and the surrounding community. Alcohol and tobacco are more toxic, more addictive, and more harmful to the body than marijuana, and alcohol is more likely to result in injuries and lead to interpersonal violence. According to an assessment recently published in the British Columbia Mental Health and Addictions Journal, health-related costs for alcohol consumers are eight times greater than those for marijuana consumers, and those for tobacco consumers are are 40 times greater than those for marijuana consumers.
There has never been a fatal marijuana overdose in history, and there is no clear-cut case of a death attributed to marijuana use.
Marijuana is quite evidently less harmful than alcohol, yet roughly 750,000 people are arrested every year for marijuana-related offenses.
Support the idea to make marijuana laws on par with alcohol laws.
