and don't cause deadly accidents like alcohol does

They do if you use them while driving.

Sucking smoke into your lungs will cause damage whether it's tobacco, wood smoke or marijuana

Yup.

Nonsense. Sucking smoke into your lungs will cause damage whether it's tobacco, wood smoke or marijuana.

And lets not forget that Marihuana alone is not addictive but many do mix it with tobacco, alcohol, etc and here is where it turns bad.

Worse than tobacco or alcohol alone? Evidence?

Never should have been decriminalized. But I am afraid the greedy, the crazy, the gullible and the dumb make up the majority in this world

I would rather see people smoking joints instead of smoking cancer sticks. At least they smell better, are better for us, and don't cause deadly accidents like alcohol does. People who are against the use of marijuana but accept cigarettes and alcohol are ignorant to the world outside their conservative lives. Don't get me wrong I'm against all dangerous drug use including cigarettes and alcohol, but marijuana is not a dangerous drug.

What about all that long-term damage of the Milk & Cookies after a smoke?
