Americans View Alcohol As A Greater Harm To Health Than Marijuana


The American public believes alcohol is far more harmful to personal health than smoking marijuana, despite its federal status as a Schedule I drug alongside heroin, according to a Monday report.

As marijuana legalization spreads, perceptions are changing and people are increasingly questioning how harmful it is compared to items that are legally available. DIG Insights, a global research firm, released its first annual Cannabis Culture Report Monday, investigating public opinion in Canada and the U.S. towards marijuana, and found pot is viewed more favorably than alcohol, among other items.
