Pot Challenge

This is a spinoff from Talee's post on legalized medical pot in AZ.   So what I would like to know is if anyone can present a logical argument that indicates pot is more dangerous than alcohol.   How is pot detremental to society?  I think it's safe to say that alcohol is pretty destructive, but pot?

didn't pot used to be legal until DuPont carpeting stepped in? i think that is they way it goes. they rallied all their lawmakers (friends) because they stood to lose a lot of money they invested into something else. was it cotton? my marijuana history is foggy (no pun intended lol) pot has many more uses than just getting high. it can be effectively used as a type of fuel (similar in affects to ethanol), and cheap reliable threading as well as the obvious medical uses. there are a few more. i will see if i can find the sources i used for one of my papers last semester. it was very interesting (not so much my paper, but the things i found)

while i don't agree with the logic that pot is more dangerous than alcohol, there is basis behind it. the only thing is that the statistics found by related studies can be labled as bias on either side of the debate. so until someone sucks it up and goes one way or the other, crossroads is the name of the game.

DuPont Chemicals and Hearst Publishing had a patented process for making newsprint out of lumber and didn't want competition from hemp.

There is already a car that runs on hemp oil, the Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper. Back in the day hemp was so vital to this nations economy one was required to grow it if you had over a specific amount of land.
