Why is marijuana illegal to consume yet we are allowed to drink alcohol which is literally like poison to our bodies? And why can we smoke cigarettes that are unhealthy for us? Alcohol puts someone in an impaired state, and cigarettes may increase health problems, marijuana is basically the combination of these two things with a few exceptions: when you are under the influence of marijuana, you are aware of your state and have more control than say someone who is drunk, you can literally die from drinking too much alcohol yet only one documented person has ever died form smoking too much marijuana, marijuana has no physically addictive chemicals like other drugs, and while marijuana has 400 chemicals, cigarettes have 700. So what's the big deal? Why do people blow it up into something it's not?
