FTL travel, or even FTL communication, is forbidden by the laws of physics.
It's not strictly forbidden. However, FTL communication is equivalent to time travel in special relativity. This means that it breaks causality. Since we haven't observed any breaks in causality, and special relativity is an extremely well tested theory, we assume that FTL communication can not exist.

Why? How does this help with security?
[Cannabis] is hypocritical that some far worse drugs have social acceptance such as caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol[...]
I will give you alcohol (because of we have to consume to get an effect, and that is really unhealthy) and nicotine (because of the delivery mechanism. Cannabis typically has the same delivery mechanism, but you would typically smoke less material per day, so it is not as bad), but caffeine? Really?
The graph you link to can only be used to asses the risk of immediately dropping dead as a consequence of taking the drug. As this is not the main risk for any of the three drugs you mention, it is, at best, irrelevant.
[...] as if that means anything. I know what they are trying to say,[...]
If you know what they mean, than it means something. Why are you complaining about language not living up to your arbitrary standards when it performs its purpose, to confer meaning?
The assumption behind sexist things is that women are somehow lesser. This means that a man with attributes (e.g. what you said) which are seen as "traditionally female" is assumed to be a "lesser man" because he's more like a woman. And people don't like helping a lesser man because why bother, right?
You don't need a hierarchy to explain the difference, stereotypes will do. Men are not expected to need help, so we don't help them.
If it was a hierarchy, we would expect either "manly" women (better women) or "womanly" men (lesser men) to be preferred, which is not what we observe: Both genders are expected to conform to the stereotype, and are punished for not doing so.
Of course, that still makes the summary wrong, but differently wrong.
