    390,000 Americans die each year from the effects of cigarette smoking. Smoking has been responsible for 16% (or 1 in 6) of all deaths in the U.S. each year.

    But no known deaths (other than driving) caused by Marijuana.


    Substantial research exists regarding cannabis and addiction. While the scientific community has yet to achieve full consensus on this matter, the majority of epidemiological and animal data demonstrate that the reinforcing properties of cannabis in humans is low in comparison to other drugs of abuse, including alcohol and nicotine. According to the US Institute of Medicine (IOM), fewer than one in 10 cannabis smokers become regular users of the drug, and most voluntary cease their use after 34 years of age. By comparison, 15 percent of alcohol consumers and 32 percent of tobacco smokers exhibit symptoms of drug dependence

    Someone please close this!
    Why even post in this thread if you're just going to say "Drugs are bad! Don't do drugs!" It's besides the point.
    Regular cigarettes are at least equally dangerous but just because of your personal experience all objectivity is lost.

    Marijuana does have medical uses, it also seems to be worse because most of it's effects show very quicky.
    Normal tobacco cigarettes destroy you slowly but it's effects are probably even more devastating.
    Normal tobacco cigarettes are also more damaging to the teeth.

    I'm not saying marijuana is good for you, but smoking regular cigarettes is AT LEAST equally bad for you.
    It's also alot easier to obtain regular cigarettes.

    Oh and consuming alot of alcohol is alot more damaging than marijuana.

    Well, back when i was smoking everything and i do mean EVERYTHING.....i knew for a fact the dangers of both cigs & herb... yet i did it anyway, i'm not even going to try and stick up for either of the two. I will admit though that a certain part of me misses smoking weed but once the facts rolled in on how damaging it really was i dropped it along with cigs and every other drug for that matter. Both are bad news.

    Yeah, doesn't really seem plausible, but that's what it says.

    That's probably because when someone dies from Marijuana use it's not the person using. It's the kids that are neglected by their parents because they're to busy getting high. Or the people in cars who die because the other driver is high. The one only shows up as neglect and the other hasn't been added to the numbers yet since they only just started to do testing for marijuana combined with hazardous driving. It's easy to claim 0 deaths when there are 0 studies completed. The few studies they are doing presently shows app 1/3rd of drivers pulled over for hazerdous driving testing positive for marijuana. Personally I find that significant. Give it ten years of studies though and then we'll know one way or the other.
