Marijuana: 9 Facts About Cannabis

#9. Marijuana is safer than alcohol

Marijuana is safer than alcohol

According to a 2014 survey, seven out of ten Americans believe alcohol is more harmful than marijuana — and they’re right. The most commonly cited reason for this belief is that cannabis has never directly caused a death, while alcohol claims many lives each year. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, there were 3.3 million deaths attributed to alcohol in 2012. Of course, alcohol poisoning is responsible for some of these deaths. On the other hand, no one has ever died from a marijuana overdose. But the long-term effects of alcohol, such as chronic illnesses, cause the most deaths. Another argument is that marijuana has a number of proven medical uses, whereas no doctor would ever recommend alcohol to a sick patient. Source
