    I would like to know these perceived health risks. Care to elaborate?

    With the exception of the health concerns brought on by smoking anything, all others still apply. Increased heart problems, increased psychiatric problems, suppressing the immune system, and memory issues can occur regardless of how the substance is ingested.

    So your research suggests that because you drink and get into fights, beer makes you hostile.

    Does anyone else see how moronic this sounds.

    Could you provide me with a credible study, in which thc and other cannabinoids are associated with immune suppression and heart problems. Not the "smoke", of course, but the active ingredients users seek.

    the standard that weed should be held to is liquor.

    so the burden is to prove that weed is worse for you then liquor.

    I absolutely believe that weed is completely less harmful then liquor.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    It is well documented that black markets restrict discrete supply, and therefore keeps the pricing mechanism in the fashion of an exverted supply curve and an exverted demand curve. Therefore the situations of quantity surpluses will fail to reduce price at almost all levels.

    To sum it up, these are super windfall profits for the high risk, high reward illicit drug business.

    LOL, i guess it all depends on what "worse" is. In the minds of many, because it is illegal, it is therefore worse!

    and the lower barrier to entry in selling weed allows people to raise funds for the much more lucrative hard drug business.

    I think a comparison of the two is irrellevant. The fact that alcohol when abused is far worse than weed, does not mean that weed is good for you by any stretch of the imagination.
