Just curious.....is alcohol worse than marijuana in terms of damage done to the body?

i think the research would say alcohol does more damage than pot to the body!

Hi Elfen, I agree with ibizan. Both are very different drugs - marijuana / pot addicion is mainly psychological and does not have the same heavy long-term effects on the body that alcohol has.

As odd as it sounds I had no idea all this time as I have always thought, like a lot more people out there, that marijuana was worse for a person maybe because of all those ads about being "Above the Influence".

i smoked pot daily for 17 years.i was addicted to it psychologically.It definitely affected my short term memory,mathmatical reasoning and depth perception.It affects the body differently than alcohol, but for those of us who are addicts/alcoholics it can lead to a full relapse of a persons drug/drink of choice!I am glad to be free of its tentacles and plege to abstain from it and alcohol!
