Yeah, both are bad for you, both are drugs. However, I would say, in terms of physical effects it would be marijana. I am not including not potential effects...such as driving and getting in an accident after drinking- most people are too tired and spaced out to drive after smoking marijuana and if anything they drive slower) it would be marijana.
My reasons for this is that, if in a "reasonable amount", alcohol can be taken care of the by the body. If you do marijuana in "reasonable amounts" you can still have THC build up in your brain between the synapses, sure, it's probably not much and probably wouldn't affect you, but it's more than what happens with a "similar" amount of alcohol.
Both have negative repercussions if used excessively. I'll give the edge to alcohol because the perps of a violent crime are more likely to be under the influence of alcohol than pot. A drunk would get pissed and throw a punch, while a stoner would say "whatever, cool, which way to Taco Bell again?" Then the stoner would go home, relax, and wolf down some tacos.
You have to remember that propaganda has all you believe that smoking pot is terrible. Largely because the Tobacco Industry spends Millions of $$ a year steering their research and lobby money against it. You also have Adolph Coors III telling you he only uses the choicest hops and barely 42 times a day and 300 times on Super Bowl Sunday. Then you wreck your car driving home from the bar after that game the 3rd Sunday in January.
Don't forget acid. That will rack the brain in a big way, much, much worse than pot.
Nah...I have done enough acid to make the entire US army see visions of George Washignton flying in a '57 chevy convertible to the music from Grease.....and I am perfectly normal....just don't peel me ...oranges don't like being peeled.
depends on the person. my body prefers the "herb superb" but dont tell anybody. mount
Oh by the way, I'm with Hans but I'm more toward the "sink the QEII" level. but then, on the negative side, I probably have more dead friends than most. seriously/dangerous.
Accually a small amount of weed can be alright for driving. It makes it so you can only concerntrate on one thing. So if its driving, nothing around you is bothering you. But dont take my word for it, I only heard from a friend. I'm sure I'm probably gonna try it in the next few years, but wouldnt take it often, like alcohol, only occasionally. And plus I heard its better for you than ciggs, tried smoking twice and coughed up like no other, can not take one puff without coughing. But I just veiw myself lucky in that case as I really dont see a point in smoking ciggs, but thats just me!
Dude, unless you're a pretty damn good driver to begin with, a small amount of either is going to kcuf up your driving. I totally disagree that weed can help you drive better in any way. Of course a drunk driver is on average much more dangerous than a stoned driver.
EDIT: A stoned driver can probably at least drive in a straight line, what with the tunnel vision and all. A drunk just sees blur after blur and then another blur, and can't steer for she-ott.
I'm with hamburgerpimp. I've seen too mush shyt caused by alcohol, from DUI's to deaths but I've never seen anyone get hurt smoking any amount of pot. I've had to send friends to the hospital because of alcohol poisoning, however, I can sit down and smoke an ounce to the head with my friends and just want some chicken tamales and cheesecake brownies (mmmm) or something like that, you know. Even when compared to tobacco, marijuana doesn't have half the chemicals in the shyt they cram in those little cancer sticks. Also people don't recognize the healing uses of marijuana. You can talk shyt about how there is no medical evidence while, in fact, there has recently been lots of studies on the medicinal uses of marijuana. The uses date back to the f*ckin stone ages. You can also talk about drug addictions while, in fact, I would consider myself a heavy pot smoker yet I haven't smoked any for about a month now since I'm vacation and I don't get any cravings at all. On the otherhand, I've smoked cigarettes for about 6 years and haven't been able to get off of them for more than two weeks. I'm trying to quit now (wish me luck!) and so far I've gone about 2 weeks but still everytime I see someone smoking, finish a meal, or just about anytime I get a crazy need for nicotene. So I hope I enlightened some of you all to the reality of this matter. Peace.
yes some drugs/alcohol can be fine if used in moderation but no america teaches no no instead of moderation
like in england u don't see many drunk drivers etc. b/c they are allowed to drink at an earlier age so drinking isn't such a big deal....to US kids its like oh im doing something im not suppose to lemme drink ALOT.
And i know people that have been to rave's in England...they use drugs there in moderation which is fine with me but here alot of rave's have just idiots taking what ever the hell and lots of it....because they can
I can name 2 not so well known drugs that are much better than alcohol or weed b/c they don't mess up the body/mind, u are still in control of yourself, 1 of the 2 u can actually drive BETTER, and ive never heard of anyone going and beating their wife on either drug
now weed is unfiltered so thus worse than cigs and i hear it just makes ya feel stupid and slow
