100 times less toxic than alcohol

Politifact: Marijuana is 100 times less toxic than alcohol.

You can read more here at the article. I believe they got a lot of information from the Marijuana Policy Project which is a great organization.
You can read the full article here: 

There is an article on Huffington Post where Mason Tvert explains that "It is one thing for our federal officials to convey their opposition to marijuana policy reform. It is an entirely different and more disturbing situation when they are conveying opposition to scientific evidence."


  1. Thanks for the article!

    Something CANNOT be 100 times less toxic. It can be "one one-hundredth" as toxic; or Alcohol can be 100x MORE toxic.

    Combining "times" (multiplier) with "less" makes NO logical sense. And I am on a quest to fix this common misuse!

    Rant off ... ;)

    (i only post here so you know your efforts are not in futility!)

    1. very good point, I think I just copied the wording from someone else. I will have to remember that if I ever see something like this in the future.
