Public health researchers generally agree that on balance, marijuana is a less harmful drug than alcohol. Booze, for instance, is more addictive than pot, and from a chemical standpoint, it’s far more toxic — and hence lethal — than marijuana.

Alcohol isn’t just more harmful to individuals than marijuana is; it’s more harmful to society, too. Drunken driving is a big factor in this — studies generally show that alcohol impairs driving ability much more than just about any other drug does. Alcohol also makes people aggressive, and is a factor in roughly 40 percentof violent crimes committed today.
