tobacco is much more addictive and significantly worse for your health however it actually IMPROVES a person's ability to FUNCTION in most circumstances.
nicotine is a STIMULANT which DRAMATICALLY reduces appetite and provides a STRONG BOOST for confidence. i don't smoke but i have used nicotine gum for both appetite suppression and to increase confidence when going out. nicotine also increases testosterone significantly. the combined effect of lowered appetite, increased energy and testosterone can noticeably enhance a male's appearance, therefore nicotine is used by some bodybuilders ( very few, but i was one of them ).
marijuana on the other hand is a STRONG DOWNER.
in other words smoking tobacco will kill you but it won't interfere with your ability to work, drive or hold a conversation.
marijuana will likely not hurt your health but it will VERY LIKELY DESTROY your lifestyle.
aside from Comedians i don't know too many successful potheads.
i voted "other" because ALL DRUGS should be legal ( but heavily taxed ).
ps: to those considering the use of nicotine gum or patch for what i used it for please keep in mind - nicotine causes HEART DISEASE.

I don't care either way whether marijuana or tobacco are legal, as long as they are illegal in public spaces. Ruin your own lungs all you want, but leave mine and the lungs of my family members out of it.

i don't enjoy doing more than 40 mph when stoned.
i don't enjoy doing less than 90 mph when drunk.
driving on every drug is different. but the only drugs from my experience that improve your driving are provigil, amphetamines and cocaine. most drugs make you drive worse.
driving on mushrooms is next to impossible - i kept confusing driveways and intersections.
