I was looking at Facebook recently when I saw someone posted in one of the pro-cannabis groups regarding the marijuana is safer than alcohol message.
I will put what he said here:
To me, it is crazy that this argument (mj vs. alcohol) even comes up. From my years of working as a medical assistant in a true class A emergency room, I have found that alcohol is by far the most dangerous drug you can put in your body. I got to compare it against everything, like Quaaludes and heroin, etc... pot anything did not even qualify one to even get into the ER.
I've heard this from some other medical professionals too. When I was standing at a rally in Tacoma holding my giant "marijuana is safer than alcohol" sign a nurse walked up to me and said pretty much the same thing.
