    On the alcohol story – when are people going to understand that alcohol is the absolute most dangerous recreational drug in the world? Not only is the addiction part if it horrible, when people become so physically addicted they go withdrawal without it, but also the physical damage it does as well to the brain and liver – more than any known recreational drug, is horrible too. . . . And then there is the poor judgment that comes with it, and to top it all off – people can't walk straight lines when they're drunk, they crash cars and kill people, and they get violent. Also, families get torn apart from alcoholism.

    Not everyone who drinks goes through these instances I spoke of, but alot do – 85,000 reported deaths due to alcohol yearly. How may for marijuana? -0-.(actual number, no one has ever died from it) (and people don't start fist-fights because they are on it, like alcohol does)

    Does anyone still believe this report that alcohol can extend life??
