  • alcohol is worse
  • I've always thought alcohol is worse than drugs, because it's generally much more available to people, thus more can get addicted. Most people drink some alcohol, so there's always the risk they'll become dependent on it, wheras less people take drugs as regularly as they drink, so I think the danger of becoming addicted is slightly reduced with marijuana.
  • Alcohol by far...there has never been a known case where someone has died directly due to the use of Marijuana, however; Alcohol related deaths are very common.
  • Worse?! They're both great!!
  • definately alcohol. Put a group of people in a room who are drinking.. Theres every chance in 2/3 hours a fight could start. Put a group of people in a room smoking marijuana and 2/3 hours later they will either be deep in meaningful conversation or asleep.
  • A drug, is a drug is a DRUG!
  • depends on how much we are talking about
  • Alchohol. Marijuana's more expensive though. your call.
  • Don't you mean what's best?
  • alcohal.
  • is not which is more dangerous but how much of it is dangerous?
  • i believe alcohol.done many stupid things while drinking.the dumbest was 4 years ago,that's when i quit.i still smoke, never did any-thing dangerous while high.kids,stay away from all of it. nothing but trouble. no matter what your friends may say.at least wait until you are older.
  • Well you can die from alcohol poisoning....and as much as some people have tried convincing others, you cannot die from smoking too much pot. When you smoke too much, you may throw up and pass out, and that's not fun either, but at least you don't have to have your stomach pumped at the E.R. plus, marijuana has some great effects on the bedy. It is a nausea reliever, an expectorant, and it lowers blood pressure just to name a couple. Booze has a coupla things going for it but not near as many.
  • I think alchohol is more dangerous. When you drink you do stupid things and drive fast. When you smoke weed you sit around and listen to music and you drive slowly thinking you are driving fast.
  • bottom line...if you smoke a quarter ounce by yourself in the space of an evening... your pretty goddamn stupid and deserve what happens to you, if you drink a 40 pounder to your face in the space of an evening...you're pretty goddamn stupid. the point is that a drug is only as bad as the dumbass that needs convincing that pot is ok
  • Alcohol is by far the more dangerous substance in my mind. You MIGHT smoke marijuana and end up in a situation where you slightly diminished reaction times could put you in harms way. There are technically ways that it might be dangerous, but they are pretty rare. Usually, when someone smokes too much pot they say, "I am really high...I'll just sit right here." Alcohol, on the other hand, is very easy to to overdo and the more you drink the less you want to admit your a drunk. The more you drink the worse your decisions, choices, and behavior seem to get. If you want to be sure to do something extremely stupid or dangerous then drinking an excess of alcohol is a surefire way to get it accomplished.
  • The health impact of any drug depends on how it's used, who's using it, how much is used, and under what circumstances. Marijuana and alcohol are no exception, so comparing them directly is difficult – each possesses the potential for unique risks or benefits. One major difference worth noting is that it isn't possible to overdose on marijuana, while lots of alcohol in a brief period of time can lead to alcohol poisoning, an emergency medical condition that can be fatal. Marijuana is infact used for certain medical conditions, such as glaucoma, marijuana possesses therapeutic properties.
  • • marijuana is non-toxic • alcohol is toxic choose your poison.. or herb
  • Here is a good resource for the risk associated with Cannabis: http://www.drugscope.org.uk/druginfo/evidence-select/cannabishealth.htm
  • I'd preffer marijuana...it goves you the ACTIVE-HIGH;)
  • Alcohol http://www.answerbag.com/q_view/86327 Duplicate Thanks for the downrate, read the message below -
  • Alcohol definitely affect OTHERS health more than marijuana, how many people cross lanes of traffic when they're high? I don't even like to leave the house
  • Both can be harmful in excess, like everything if you over do it then you are going to have problems.
  • Neither for me , thank goodness
  • thats a tuff compatition, close to a tie
  • I guess my answer would be marijuana because most people that smoke pot usually just get stoned & stupid & want to mellow out & eat. However when people get drunk they want to drive or fight & hurt other people. If I had to pick between the lesser of the 2 evils I guess it would be pot.
  • Marijuana is a lot less harmful than alcohol.
  • alcohol for sure, dope is not for me.
  • Medically, it is better than you. No thinking required, here. Although pot has the tar content of three cigarettes, you (hopefully) use it with less than three times the frequency. Pot is not addictive. Alcohol is. Alcohol leads to anger, car accidents, and alcohol poisoning. Pot doesn't lead to anger, I'm not sure about car accidents, and it's almost impossible to OD on.
  • Marijuana
  • It is better for you than alcohol... it's a fact... not just an opinion.
  • In my mind, alcohol. They can both be bad in excess, but aside from the smoke inhalation (if you chose to smoke it) I think pot is far better. People on alcohol can become Violent, where people on Marijuana rarely do. Marijuana also has medical potential, and is currently used in situations where a patient needs to have an appetite, or has severe chronic pain. (currently there is a medication called "Maranol" which is a drink derived from Marijuana) I do not think that Everybody should go out and smoke pot, but I don't think it's bad occasionally, though An occasional drink isn't either.
  • It seems to me that alcohol is. +5
  • alcohol is the worst drug of them all.
  • death wise alcohol no one has ever died from the use of marijuana
  • Alcohol. I have never been in a room full of mean potheads only mean drunks.
  • Alcohol- it destroys your body, it's addictive, and drunks can't function in any situation. Pot has less bad stuff in it than cigarettes, it is habit forming- but not physically addictive, and experienced pot smokers can function quite well in many situations when they are high.
  • Alcohol. Like Tony Sinclair says "Always in moderation" PS I love your user name!!
  • Addiction to either one.
  • 7 answers received and 7 votes for alcohol. I wonder how many of those 7 people have seen the gradual decline into addiction and death of those people who, having made contact with dealers of illegal substances when they started smoking dope, move on to the next high, and the next high until all they are concerned with is escaping reality in a drug induced alternative reality and then OD or kill themselves. Alcohol may well be more dangerous than marijuana, but your local supermarket doesn't offer you whisky after you've bought a few beers. More people die young from the abuse of illegal drugs than die young from the abuse of legal ones.
  • Alcohol: Calories, liver damage, possible brain damage, possiblility of death caused by excessive drinking, possibility of doing stupid things (I'm on crutches for 5 weeks because I did something stupid while drunk). Marijuana: Can smell bad, can make people "Wig out", can be trippy, can make one tired, makes my older brother hyper and he then cleans the house (A definate + ), inhaling any smoke can cause lung cancer. These are the cons for both that I can list off the top of my head, except for the cleaning thing at the end. Also, it is impossible (apparently) to die from smoking too much pot because the smoker just passes out or goes to sleep before anything really bad can happen.
  • From my experience, pot changes people in an all around way more than alcohol. I've lost a lot of good friends cause of it too.
  • Since I am asthmatic with a good liver, I will personally say, Marijuana. I can't tolerate smoking of any kind but I like a little bitty buzz from the hair of the dog. +
  • Alcohol! While marijuana does have some risks, I have never heard of anyone becoming violent while under the influence of marijuana, nor have I ever heard of anyone dying from a marijuana overdose. Alcohol often causes violent behavior, and many, many people have died from an overdose of alcohol.
  • alcohol
  • alcohol is worse, never mind liver and other problems it causes but u cant drive at all and besides that u can dehydrate from drinking 2much or OD, and dont fall asleep on yur back or u 4 sure will drowned on yur own vomit. Or u can smoke a joint feel great n live another day, but maybe 50 tears u will have lung cancer but not exactly from mari jane prolly from microwaveable popcorn chemicals.
  • Alcohol is by far worse. Marijuana is the reason my life went back on track. As a former Army airborne infantryman I used to drink everyday just to feel normal, despite the problems that where happening everyday. After i first used marijuana the benefits far surpass it's dangers. It cured my insomnia, Got me out of a clinical and suicidal depression, helped me with my chronic back pain, increased my sexual potency and desire, and made me look on life at a different view. I can also safely use a car after using marijuana, and not worry about a dwi, that in my field of work would make me a regular jobless bum. My first experience with marijuana was over-whelming, i was very impaired and unable to even walk normal, and i experienced memory loss and blackouts, but after several weeks of marijuana use i am able to do anything i can do without it's use. Marijuana also put a toll on my social life, i wasted more money on marijuana then i do on alcohol. With marijuana abuse your risks are far less severe then with alcohol abuse. I Believe the use of marijuana can lead to many great benefits and a better life, and at the same time abuse can lead to health problems and financial crisis. Just like with any drug, marijuana should be legalized and controlled like alcohol and cigarettes. If you are abusing marijuana or alcohol and believe you may need help you can email me personally anytime at undergroundman@optonline.net I can help advise you on marijuana safety/mental addiction, and abuse.
  • A true alcoholic is neigh incapacitated; but as a frequent pot smoker I still find time to get to work and school.

  • alcohol
  • Alcohol. Marijuana leads to worse stuff but alcohol is worse all the time.
  • Um...Alcohol is legal.
  • Absolutely Alcohol.
  • Alcohol is much more destructive. If you ask me someone messed up when alcohol was made legal and marijuana was not. I think alcohol is much more a "gateway" drug then anything else...
  • grog ...hands down no contest at all, I have seen the damage grog has done in soooo many ways and to soooo many people directly and indirectly, in my 41 years of partaking of substances grog is 1000 times worse than pot in everyway
  • Alcohol causes more fatalities per year than marijuana. Alcohol is far deadlier, faster, to an individual user than marijuana is. Alcohol is far more likely to lead to the deaths of innocent bystanders than marijuana is, even counting the murders related to the illegal drug trade -- which would vanish if our laws changed, just as murders related to the illegal alcohol trade vanished when Prohibition was over.
  • It is booze that is far worse for you than marijuana. Too much Booze is physically and mentally damaging if consumed on a regular basis, and causes a lot of damage as an indirect result to others. Marijuana isn't as dangerous, but too much can mental damage! And of course one could develop cancer due to smoking it. Although the nicotine would play a large past in this, from the tobacco. Smoking it on it's own isn't without it's dangers to the respiratory system. All drugs have there down sides. And it isn't good to paint any narcotic with with gloss. If one likes to indulge in either, it would best be done with responsibility. That way both can be enjoyed without any dire consequences.
  • chronic cannabis smoking. it fks life up, self seclusion from society, no job, health problems, paranoia just to name a few.
  • Well since Alcohol flat out kills brain cells and severely damages many other vital organs such as the liver and kidneys. And since there is a portion of our brains that are actually scientifically designated as THC receptors that are stimulated by THC; the 'active ingredient' in marijuana and merely realign the thought process without actually killing brain cells by changing synaptic responses. I myself would much rather deal with people under the influence of marijuana than those who abuse alcohol. I've ridden in cars with stoned drivers, reasoned with them, and felt safe in secure in both cases. I CANNOT say the same for people who have been drunk around me.
  • I'd rather my kids driving around high rather than drunk.
  • I've heard that both are good for you recently. Everyone is aware that alcohol has health benefits - especially red wine - but I recently read an article that stated that a research study funded by the government went looking to prove that Marijuana increased tumor growth rates (as cigarettes do), and found exactly the opposite. Smoking marijuana, even heavily, had positive effect on tumor growth - meaning that it slowed tumor growth at twice the rate as placebo.
  • depends marijuana is worse but alcohol is worse people because of the after effect completely lose their mind when they drink too much
  • listen it clearly depends on what you want to mess up.i clearly think marajuana is alot worse because this active substance actually affects the brain rather than the liver which alcohol normally affects..but non the less killing your brain cells is alot worse because you should know once u kill brian cells you can not gain them or grow them back at least your liver cells can recuperate
  • i suppose it depends on what is meant by "worse". going from my interpretation i'd say alcohol is because it causes more health, social and psychological problems than marijuana. marijuana is worse when looked at from the standpoint of legal penalties for use.
  • alcohol
  • Alcohol definitely because there are no health benefits to alcohol, weed however does cure headaches as well as many other benefits try butting the pipe down and Google it i don't feel like looking it all up right now
  • alcohol is the worst, only thing marijuana does is make you sleepy and very hungry
  • alcohol I was married to a man for 7 years who was a alcoholic he would beat me and on occasions rape me I'm now married to a man who smokes pot and he is the sweetest kindest man I have ever known...
  • i'd say marijuana
  • alcohol
  • I am thinking of the third worse option to add to list!
  • Marijuana. it stinks to high heaven.
  • alcohol hands down no competition in anyway shape or form anyone who truly disagrees and wants a debate id be glad to give you one because if you actually believe marijuanna is worse than alcohol ou need a little lesson
  • alkohol
  • ALCOHOL!
  • There is no better or worse. Both drugs are equally the same. Alchol/Marijuana may affect people at different levels but they are still addictive. They still have the same outcome if they are not controlled and they both have the same legal repercussions. A drug is a drug and alcohol is a drug. It's is how we use them that determines whether one is worse for us as a person, than the other. Consult NA/AA
  • I'd have to say alcohol... most people on marijuana just veg and eat.
  • yes i agree with the first dude!! u see ppl driving drunk on the road.. they arent driving high.. they are driving drunk. when u r high u can drive pretty decntly.. plus picture if there were only weed bars instead of a alcohol bars. do u really think taht there would be such a thing as bar fights.. also its almost impossible to overdose on weed. and weed doesnt give hangovers and also doesnt make someone feel like shit after 5 minutes.
  • alcohol- many reasons, first it contributes to many acts of violence, along with drunk driving, anger and agression, not to mention hangovers black outs and vommiting. consunption of too much alcohol leads to many regretful decesions IE teen pregnancy marijuana on the other hand doesn't lead to anger, agression or violence, but to a calm peaceful feeling. there are no hangovers, no vommiting, no directly related deaths and you are still concious to make decesions to be fair, marijuana does lead to memory loss, but the benefits and possible medical uses make memory loss a very small symptom
  • Alcohol :)
  • Alcohol is worse than weed for many reasons. 1. Weed is not addicting, as is alocohol 2. If you smoke weed then you create a risk of lung cancer, but not nearly as much as cigarettes, and weed doesn't HAVE to be smoked. Alcohol ruins your liver and other organs. 3. Weed is all natural, no chemicals added, can't say that about alcohol. 4. You can't take to much weed, it's physically impossible, the most that will happen is you will end up throwing up or sleeping it off, too much alcohol = death.
  • i find it funny they labeled this as "drugs and alchohol" when alchohol is a drug. Marijuana has so many benefits and is by far safer, it is IMPOSSIBLE to overdose from pot, and it doesnt destroy your liver and your mind like alchohol
  • there has never been a death related to the use of marijuana so smoke it all you want and alcohol related deaths are in the millions every year
  • alcohol is your answer dude.
  • Marijuanahol. Totally stoked drink man!
  • Honestly, do I even have to add to the answers? It's obvious that a higher percentage of people believe alcohol is worse. Just look at all you'r answers and the proof is there, lol. Not one of them said marijuana is worse. :]
  • Let's be honest here! Both marijuana and alcohol are the Devil's tools to distort the reality and responsibility of mankind towards his God and fellowman. They are mind altering poisons that dull the sences and destroy the body. Would anyone want a pilate, under the influence, flying the plane they, or their loved ones were on? Why not if it's so good for you? The most natural high for mankind is prayer and the study of God's word! With this fix, one will never go wrong!
  • Depends on what you mean by worse. you could mean worse for you or just like which gives u the less good feelings. but what ever ill do what i can do. id say alcohol is worse. when your drunk you dont give a shit about ne thing. u think ur super man in a way. ive punched trees as hard as i can and woken up in the morning like why the fuk did i punch that tree it fukin hurts. so what im saying is if your drunk your more likely to do stupid shit. and your look alot dumber when your drunk. u talk nonsense. and ppl probably dont understand what your saying. but when you smoke weed you feel relaxed, but alert at the same time. you can concentrate and you can act sober if you need to. you also have deep conversations instead of just blammering on. if your high you can focus really hard on driving, you might be paranoid, but thats good because it makes u a more safe driver. when your drunk you just say im gunna go 125 down the freeway because im drunk and i think i can do ne thing. and plus long term weed is probably healthier. they both kill brain cells and weed is bad for the lungs, but not that bad but alcohol you can drink to much in one night and die or u can aget addicted unlike marijauan. its also bad for the liver. its way more dangerous
  • Alcohol is obviously worse.... it leads to physical addiction, where as weed does not, therefor bronwen is very wrong
  • ALCOHOL.
  • both are great.
  • Alcohol is worse on every level. Mostly, just look at a person who is wicked drunk, versus wicked high. Who would you rather deal with? Drunks don't believe they are drunk, and are often violent,provocative, aggressive, and basic as&#%les. A wicked high person is mellow, basically harmless (sometimes even if provoked)and might be stupid and lazy, and sometimes just plain useless, thats not quite the same as the drunk who wipes out a family of 4. High people usually don't drive. Don't want to drive. Don't want to get up. They want to sit and eat doritos. And you dont even need a beer with it....a coke is fine. If you are baked. Booze kills and destroys lives every minute.
  • alcohol, cause it kills brain cells marijuana dosent kill them it stimulates them
  • both are fine. lol but weed is natural so that i guess drinking in moderation isnt bad... <3 x
  • alcohol. marijuana is nothing compared to it
  • Alcohol is a poison for your body. Marijuana is dank plant. Fuck alcohol. smoke pot.
  • Marijuana is much worse. There are 500+ chemicals in marijuana and none are good for you. Numerous medical studies have shown that daily alcohol use (in moderation) has health benefits. While no one has ever said tha smoking weed is good for you. The biggest problem with marijuana is the intake process (smoking). There are huge health issues with any type of smoking. There needs to be more study into long term marijuana use to really answer the question, but the smoking alone makes it very unhealthy.
