Alcohol causes far more damage to users and to society than does the use of marijuana, according to a new study published online in the Journal of Psychopharmacology , the journal of the British Association of Psychopharmacology. Researchers at the Imperial College of London looked at "the relative physical, psychological, and social harms of cannabis and alcohol," reports Paul Armentano at AlterNet . They determined that marijuana smoking, particularly longterm, does some harm to the lungs and circulatory system, and increases certain mental-health risks (which is debatable). But in contrast, the authors described alcohol as "a toxic substance" responsible for almost five percent "of the total global disease burden." "A direct comparison of alcohol and cannabis showed that alcohol was considered to be more than twice as harmful as cannabis to users, and five times more harmful as cannabis to others (society)," investigators determined.

Many urban legends and misconceptions about classified drugs have been created and circulated among children and the general public, with varying degrees of veracity. These are commonly repeated by organizations which oppose all classified drug use, often causing the true effects and dangers of drugs to be misunderstood and less scrutinized. The most common subjects of such false beliefs are LSD , cannabis , and MDMA . These misconceptions include misinformation about adulterants or other black market issues, as well as alleged effects of the pure substances.
