25 Legal Drugs More Dangerous Than Marijuana

We are all aware that marijuana is not a dangerous drug. To this day, there are still no deaths that can traced directly to marijuana use. It is possible to overdose but you have to smoke an impossible amount. Meanwhile, there several drugs that are a lot more dangerous drugs out there that you can go and buy right now at your local CVS. Our friends at Medical Billing and Coding wrote an article listing the top 25 drugs that are less dangerous than marijuana. The full list can be found here.

  • Alcohol

    The phrase “drugs and alcohol” is redundant. People who drink alcohol can impair their faculties, develop a tolerance for it, and become addicted. That’s a drug, and a very dangerous one at that. Brain damage, cancer, and death (37,000 of them in the U.S. each year) are just some of those dangers to alcohol consumers, not to mention the nearly one-third of violent crimes perpetrated in the U.S. each year that are alcohol-related.

  • Tobacco:

    Yes, through some fluke in the legal system, cigarettes remain legal while weed is banned. As cigarette smoking claims more than 5 million lives around the world annually, one might rightly wonder why that is the case. Even in a direct comparison, marijuana is demonstrably safer. A 20-year study found smoking as often as a joint a day for seven years does not harm the lungs.

  • Acetaminophen:

    The active ingredient in Tylenol and the most commonly used painkiller in America, acetaminophen has caused many cases of liver failure, mainly by overdose but also through users taking the recommended dosage. In fact, about 10% of deaths due to its ingestion are at levels at or below the daily maximum recommended dosage.

  • Caffeine:

    The American worker’s favorite substance is dangerous in high enough doses. Since 2005, reports of caffeine overdoses have risen from 1,128 to 16,055 in 2008 and 13,114 in 2009. The dangers short of death include weaker bones, higher blood pressure, and flat-out addiction. But then again, many of us already knew that, didn’t we?

  • Synthetic drugs:

    These are the gas station drugs, the ones with names like “Bliss” that are still legal in many states by posing as supplements or vitamins. President Obama has gone so far as to issue a warning about these drugs.
