It's not safer than alcohol. From what I've witnessed from working in medical/surgical/emergency wards over the years, it is about on a par.Cord....What is the problem? Yes fact Marijuana is much safer then alcohol in fact Marijuana is safer then most meds you can buy over the counter.
NEVER SHOULD HAVE BEEN ILLEGAL....
Eightman.......In a war torn region in a dangerous nation 4 people died and you cream and howl and blame Obama....
In 2001 THOUSANDS DIED ON USA SOIL AND YOU BOWED AND WORSHIPED YOUR GOD BUSH AND BLAMED THOSE WHO DID IT..
What a turd. Oh and even if the very second that attack started if we had sent troops there that second they would have got there way to late...Oh and the embassy there had turned down prior to attack more security... SO SHUT THE HECK UP AND DROP IT.
I've seen victims of accidents under the influence of alcohol, but prior to leaving the health industry, I began to see more victims of accidents that occurred while the patient was stoned.
I also saw more moody, irritable and belligerently aggressive behaviour from pot users increase as well. Episodes of such behaviours were more explosive from those under the influence of alcohol, where as pot users seemed to have that slow burning fuse before physical /verbal aggression began.
I certainly saw far more alarming personality and mood swings in pot users, that seemed to manifest in an underlying irritability leading towards raw anger towards nursing staff. What goes up, must come down. I definitely have seen schizophrenic behaviours being triggered and exacerbated by pot.
To be fair, I also have observed pot to be used medicinally for sufferers of MS; Cancer; Arthritis and atypical neuralgia with great success. The benefits should outweigh potential side effects.
