Alcohol or Marijuana? A Pediatrician Faces the Question
Since most people will try marijuana and/or alcohol at some point in their lives it is important to know the facts. This article written by a pediatrician goes over the health effects of both marijuana and alcohol. It presents statistics about death, injury to self, and injury to others as well as long term effects and use. I thought this article was very interesting and I found the authors choice to be accurate and reasonable. Because of the evidence he had and presented the author chose marijuana as being overall safer than alcohol. Do you agree with the author's conclusion? Why or why not? What if anything presented in this article make you think about marijuana or alcohol differently?
