    In what ways is pot worse then alcohol?

    In what way is the war on drugs different then prohibition?

    Do you think it is harder for high school kids to get pot or alcohol?

    Just some simple questions.

    More substance use is not better.

    Is it worse to die from an infection that originated from a gunshot or knife wound??

    Well... Chances are you'll gain more weight. Normally you want to eat before you drink. Pot... You eat after using. **IF** you can actually get up to do it.

    Umm... The war on drugs costs more money?

    Both are pretty damn easy to get when I was in high school.

    Yeah... Pretty easy.

    Pot is easier to conceal and transport.

    banning or outlawing a popular substance or culture only drives it underground. Keeping it legal or in the open allows better observation and control.

    Testing to see if someone is high is harder than drunk. And neither should be driving...

    There will be abuse no matter what...case in point, doctors, many knowingly, who prescribe pain meds to people who then go out and deal them.
