    I tell you, I'd feel safer in a crowd full of stoned people than a crowd full of drunks. Stoners sleep and get hungry. Boozers fight, vomit, fight some more, try to drive (sometimes killing people in the process), fight some more, pass out, and then vomit/urinate/deficate in their sleep.

    Alcohol is a killer. Weed is just an amazing lifestyle that brings you sweet sweet serenity.

    Alcohol is way worse. Done both. Seen what it does to me and other people. My parents are major drunks and are constantly arguing over stupid small things while im always caught in the middle. And the next day they don't even remember. Drinking will ultimatly kill you from toxicity. Marijuana will not. Look up the facts. It is impossible to overdose on marijuana. Unfortunatly, drinking is socially acceptable. I love weed because it helps me forget about family problems.

    if worse is intended for functioning, then a would have to say that alcohol is definitely the more deadly. statisticly i don't think i've heard of as many deaths from smoking a joint.

    Isn`t that kind`a like asking what`s more dangerous," a knife or a gun"? They are both dangerous in the wrong hands. Even tho, alcohol is legal, the law doesn`t stop IDIOTS from driving drunk. Cops arrest tons of `em all the time. The real problem isn`t so much the drugs or alcohol, it`s the law breakers. Those who put others in danger just because they dont want to conform. Laws were made to OBEY not to be broken. Yeah Right, I can hear you now. But ,,,,,,,Stupidity Has Taken Many To An Early Grave.

    This shouldn't even be a question... it's a FACT. You cannot die from too much pot, but you absolutely can from too much alcohol. Alcohol overdoses KILL, there's no such thing as an overdose on pot. Side effects from alocohol consumption: Hangovers, Weight Gain, High Blood Pressure, Depressed Immune System, Cancer, Liver Disease, Alcohol Poisoning and Heart.Respiratory Failure (aka DEATH). Side effects of marijuana use: Dry Mouth, Increased Appetite, Bloodshoy Eyes, Apathy, Silliness and Sleepiness. So, which is worse... DUH. CASE CLOSED.

    The thing is, pot and alcohol have very different therapeutic indexes, meaning, one is easier to overdose on, than the other. In this case, alcohol causes toxicity much easier than pot does; honestly, who's ever heard of someone dying from a pot overdose?

    When alcohol is used responsibly, it is an effective CNS depressant with minimal side-effects. However, abuse of alcohol can lead to strong dependence of alcohol as well as things like nutritional deficiencies. Alcohol dependence is a hard thing to reverse, as it practically involves your whole nervous system over-compensating for the effects of alcohol. An abrupt cessation of alcohol intake in the alcoholic patient can cause delirium, seizures, and even death.

    Pot has a wide range doses with mild, generally pleasurable side-effects. It does have an effect on your appetite, by working on your endogenous cannabinoid system, activating receptors in your hypothalamus, causing a sort-of stress-recovery phenomenon. Over-eating seems to be one way pot can be unhealthy.

    In both cases, people will more or less do things like driving, or operating machinery. Both have broad effects on the brain, but in my opinion, alcohol tends to cause a more dangerous mental state when behind the wheel, or at work.

    I would have to say alcohol.

    The herb is grown from nature. Its perfectly harmless. How many people do you hear about dieing from weed? Now compare that to drunken car crashes. It doesn't add up.
