Yea its old but i have been sick.
Alcohol is more dangerous as it is easy to consume enough to kill you. Pot is not.
Perhaps. In my experience its a even split of people going to the hospital. Also i know of almost no one that smokes only pot, they are also typically drunk as well.
Alcohol is more dangerous because it causes you to do stupider stuff then stoners typically do.
Citation required. At least everywhere i have been where there are plenty of stoners, they do just as crazy shit as everyone else. I could cite the police reports to prove it.
Alcohol is more dangerous as it harms children more then pot.
You literary just made that up.
Alcohol is more dangerous to your health over the long term. Smoke pot, your liver will thank me.
Again with the made up shit.
Lets be clear we know alcohol can be bad for you. But we just don't have good data on pot. Mostly because it has been illegal. There is nothing to suggest that if was as widely used as alcohol and as widely abused that it would be any better.
This is what i hate about the drugs debate. The pro side is "totally harmless" the con side is "OMG your going to eat your friend when high one day". The truth is neither, and the best we can say from the data right now is that pot is *mostly* harmless for limited use depending on the person (if there is a history of metal issues in your family you may want to be a little more careful). And this study is another example of the bullshit that can come out with the science label slapped on it.
