According to this study in Yemen, cannabis has a higher dependency rate than ecstasy, and alcohol has both a higher dependency rate and risk rate than both cannabis and ecstasy. Tobacco is almost as dangerous as alcohol and is in the same 1/3 of the chart for dependency as cocaine. Tobacco and alcohol are also completely legal in the United States and a large supporter of the economy. Think what you want, but even steroids have a lower dependency rate than alcohol and are around the same risk level. I personally find alcohol to be the most dangerous drug. Too many people, however, are addicted to alcohol and tobacco for them to be outlawed. I don’t think they should be by any means, but if they are so dangerous and can be legal, why can’t marijuana be a funding cash crop for our sketchy economy? We might as well get some tax revenue?
