Drug Experts Say Alcohol Worse Than Crack or Heroin – FoxNews.com
Now here goes some damning evidence against those that say illegal drugs are the worst. Besides, the only reason why marijuana was made illegal was because it cut into the cotton trade and the cotton industry lobbied Congress to make it so. This just proves it.
Alcohol is a more dangerous drug than both crack and heroin when the combined harms to the user and to others are assessed, British scientists said Monday.
Presenting a new scale of drug harm that rates the damage to users themselves and to wider society, the scientists rated alcohol the most harmful overall and almost three times as harmful as cocaine or tobacco.
According to the scale, devised by a group of scientists including Britain’s Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs (ISCD) and an expert adviser to the European Monitoring Center for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA), heroin and crack cocaine rank as the second and third most harmful drugs.
