After reading about a PA eye doctor who was raided and charged with growing the green for his patients, I thought about how stupid it is that marijuana is not legal, yet alcohol is more destructive and still legal.
Let's point out the fact that alcohol is way worse for any human body and has literally no benefits. Alcohol doesn't do anything nice for you.
Certain strands of marijuana have been scientifically proven to have very helpful medical benefits, one such example is a girl with epilepsy who was given the strand that doesn't get you high. She was suffering strokes many times per week and now she only strokes once in a while.
Alcohol hurts your body and makes people do things they wouldn't normally do. People get drunk and commit crimes, grow beer muscles, and do things to get themselves in trouble.
What does weed do? Nothing. You sit around, laugh, and maybe get the munchies. When was the last time someone tried to fight you because they were high? What about robbing a bank or committing other crimes? It just doesn't happen. The occasional marijuana smoker doesn't do any of that.
Other countries realized it. Colorado figured it out and gained $40 million in revenue to spend on their people.
So what should we really ban? Marijuana or Alcohol?
