Well if u ask anyone from TIGER and LION which is more feral...um sure people wontable answer, because both of them are ferocious equally..!!!Just like dis both alcohol and weed are precarious and harmful.Though alcohol and weed act as a stimulant and give your body a feeling of lightness but graduallyyy it will devour your life by damging the nervous system and causing other fatal diseases.Finally you'll be succumbed to death. My question is that people despite knowing the fact that this alchol and addictive drugs are making their life no better rather making it worse by causing early death..WHAT ON EARTH MAKE THEM CONSUME IT???Those addicted people are not only causing harm to them but also to the people and society around.
I think stern measures should be taken to thwart them from annihilating the society.

Alcohol can sometimes be at classy events..weddings, nice dinners, romantic dinners, etc..Weed is always in some friend's garage or at some college party.

I would choose alcohol. At least when I have a drink I can be sure I am not risking permanently changing my mental health for the worst. Weed makes people forgetful, paranoid and lazy. At least with alcohol the effects wear off and it is not (in small doses) too harmful.

Alcohol is more of a social thing, but weed is more personal. Thus weed is more about enjoying oneself while alcohol brings other things into the picture (behaviour, the way others are treated, etc).

Well i feel that if we are talking about alcohol being outlawed then i side with weed. Alcohol is way more dangerous i feel than weed. People get drunk and do horrible things all of the time. How many times have you heard of a man beating the sh*t out of his wife because he was stoned?? How many stoned drivers ran head on to another car and killed themselves or others. I just feel that alcohol has so many more risks than weed. All weed does is chill people out, and make them eat. The only harm it does is put people in jail. i feel that weed should be legal and alcohol shouldn't. Its ruined way to many peoples lives in way to many ways.

1. Weed is not physically addictive like alcohol is. The withdrawal effects from alcohol are incredibly difficult, whereas the average pothead may become mildly irritated for a few days upon quitting.

2. It is impossible to overdose on marijuana. At worst, one will fall asleep after using excessive pot. Marijuana poisoning doesn't exists. Alcohol poisoning is very real, and very dangerous. There were zero marijuana related deaths last year. There were thousands of alcohol related deaths.

3. One may find it hard to wake up the day after a night of heavy marijuana use, but again, the effects are nothing compared to the headaches, nausea, and sensitivity experienced during an alcohol hangover.

4. No one likes a loud, obnoxious, abusive drunkard. No one minds the giggling, hungry pothead.

5. Marijuana is far cheaper. A single dosage of marijuana is relatively inexpensive compared to the price of the average amount alcohol one must ingest to become intoxicated.

6. Marijuana has proven medicinal usages. The average alcoholic beverage has none.

7. This is a personal preference, but I far prefer the effects of weed to those of alcohol. Again, this is just my personal choice and others may feel differently, but I would much, much rather smoke marijuana than drink.

In American society, alcohol has become a more socially acceptable practice, but the benefits of marijuana far outweigh the benefits and negatives of alcohol.

I am just going to assume the debate is about which is more beneficial to a consumer since the person who put the question up for debate didn't explain. Marijuana out weighs consumer benefits over alcohol by 4/5ths. Statistically speaking, this means that for every one argument someone has that proves alcohol has some benefit there is 4 arguments that prove that weed is much more beneficial to a consumer. Alcohol has a much higher mortality rate every month of the year than marijuana has in just a century. Scientifically, Marijuana has actual cures, treatments, and on going studies where as alcohol is flat out alcohol. There are no actual cures or treatments that it could help. Alcohol believe it or not is an actual disease.
