If you look alcohol and compare it to marijuana you will see that it is complete stupidity to have the one less harmful be made illegal. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that more than 37,000 annual U.S. deaths occur from the effects of alcohol. On the other hand, the CDC does not even have a category for deaths caused by the use of marijuana. So that means there are close to zero if any deaths attributed to marijuana consumption.
