Do You Think It’s Silly That Tobacco Is Legal While Marijuana Is Not?

Question by mutterhals: Do you think it’s silly that tobacco is legal while marijuana is not?
“An exhaustive search of the literature finds no credible reports of deaths induced by marijuana. The US Drug Abuse Warning Network records instances of drug mentions in medical examiners’ reports, and though marijuana is mentioned, it is usually in combination with alcohol or other drugs. Marijuana alone has not been shown to cause an overdose death” – Quote via the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Administration

“Tobacco use is considered to be the most important preventable cause of death and disease in the United States; More than 1 billion people smoke worldwide, and an estimated 3 million die each year from tobacco-related illness. Despite all of its documented consequences, tobacco use continues to play an important role in the morbidity and mortality of this country (U.S.)”- Quote via U.S. Dept. of Health & Human Services
