Why is marijuana illegal and alcohol is not?
its because the government cant find a way yo make a profit from weed
Well, marijuana can be a controlled substance, although it does have the same affects of alcohol. Yes marijuana can be addictive, and people who are, are called "potheads". But our government legalizes alcohol, and that can be addictive, that's why in America we have people called "alcoholics". If they are going to make marijuana illegal, they might as well just make ALL drugs illegal. Because if you think about it... alcohol is a drug.
Doesn't matter stay away from both unless you wanna end up in prison. There are several differences between marijuana and alcohol. Marijuana is usually smoked, and alcohol is consumed by drinking it. (It is also possible to drink marijuana if you brew it into a tea, but that is not the most common method.) Marijuana is illegal (and even though some states have legalized it, the US federal government has not legalized it) and alcohol…
Marijuana, although illegal, does not have as many negative side effects as alcohol can have. Both, in moderation are fine (although I cannot do both at once) but neither should be done in excess. Overindulgence in alcohol can cause many adverse reactions such as alcohol poisoning and death and there are no documented (medically or otherwise) cases of marijuana overdose.
Probably because the alcohol and tobacco companies don't want it to compete with them. The more people who buy marijuana, the less people who spend money on tobacco. Marijuana does have it's medical problems, but, so do alcohol and tobacco. If the government did legalize marijuana, they would make more money in taxes, but, the alcohol and tobacco companies use their influence to keep it illegal.
