:weed: Weed is not more dangerous than alcohol 🍺

Drugs are bad, but the drug war is worse. It's possible that legalizing marijuana could be a huge public-health win.

Kinda speaks for itself. Weed also isn't some sort of hardcore drug like heroine and stuff, so I never got why everyone chucks it right in the same category.

@stux Plus a massive tax win. Colorado has more than fully funded its public schools with the 25% tax it placed on recreational marijuana. Medical has a tax as well but it's more like 7%

@stux weed is great! although I did have trouble driving while high once...

@stux you know that bad trip I had on weed was probably because it was laced
