The international public organization "Global Commission on Drug Policy" has released a report on the problems of legislative regulation of drug use. In it, the commission called on the authorities to revise the UN classification, approved half a century ago. As an argument, the public organization cites studies according to which alcohol is much more harmful than cocaine and heroin.
According to a 2010 study, alcohol ranked first in the classification primarily because of the harm caused to others under the influence ... We are talking about crimes - murder, bodily harm, and injuries while intoxicated. In addition, alcohol is often the culprit in family breakdown and homelessness. According to scientists, the leaders in terms of the degree of harm directly to the health of users, according to scientists, were crack, heroin and methamphetamine, scoring 37, 34 and 32 points, respectively.
Here you can also read about the dangers of alcohol and how to quit drink it yourself.
I will answer your question with a link to a video of a guy who fully reveals this topic and tells how substances simply become prohibited.
He attaches links to all sources.
Alcohol is actually more harmful than many drugs. In general, if overused, then any product will become harmful. It looks like a channel ad, but it isn't.
It depends on what currents of view you look at. If from the point of view of the number of deaths per year in the country (including accidents with drunk drivers), then I think that alcohol has no competitors among the substances. But this is absolutely not the harmlessness of light drugs follows - from this it follows that drinking is harmful. The harm they have is different, so it is difficult to fully compare.
It depends on how you use them.
You can drink two glasses of beer and feel normal. Or you can smoke half a packet of grass, catch a pale one and vomit, huddled under the table, out of paranoia.
Ecstasy is a slightly different level. With him, you can harm your carcass in a non-illusory way, even if you use it once. First, like all stimulants, hypertensive patients shouldn't. Secondly, having used it, it is important to drink a lot of water (not booze!), Better mineral water or sports isotonic. Third, ecstasy can affect personality. Fourthly, ecstasy and similar substances induce mad tolerance, therefore they cannot be used often. Otherwise, you will have to greatly increase the dose, opening up more side effects and getting less beneficial effect.
In addition, for ecstasy and herb you (yes, it’s you) will be put on 10 years (and will not be released on parole) to spidous whips in a cell, from where you will bring an unpleasant status, tuberculosis, HIV, syphilis and other consequences of rape, as well as a broken life and knocked out teeth.
Marijuana is, in principle, a harmless biologically pure drug, of course, if grown without any chemical additives. It is not addictive as such.
