People who drink like fish and find fault with those who smoke marijuana irritate the heck out of me.

Alcohol is far more dangerous.

Drunkeness makes many loud, obnoxious, belligerent and reckless.  Do you think alcohol is a better mood altering drug than Mj?

Both are more fattening than I'd like them to be.  :)  I think mood altering drugs are fine for most people and very bad for a few.  As a matter of personal preference, I like alcohol better than MJ.

I think any mind altering addiction is wrong.

Marijuana is not physically addictive where as alcohol is, to the point of death from abstinence actually.  Do you ever drink a glass of wine?  are you an addict?

 There is use, misuse and then abuse.  I find use of any substance to be fine.  Misuse not so much. Abuse is absolutely not acceptable. 

For me everything is fine in moderation.

I'm not going to argue but it is emotionally addictive. Not physically like most other things but emotionally it can be. Some people use it so much they feel they can not function without it and it becomes habitual.
