¿Marijuana or tobacco? ¿Marijuana or alcohol? The eternal question throwing the bigwigs of governments around the world to its population, with the aim of making believe as long as the snuff and alcohol, despite being drugs are less harmful than marijuana, but is this real? I would not dare launch a resounding NO to the air, since I am not a researcher or scientist. However, I’m like a hound dog in search of information, primarily in online media, but also in the more traditional, such as magazines, radio or television and all I sought an answer to this question: “What is worse, alcohol, marijuana or snuff?” and the conclusion I have drawn and my instinct told me is that, effectively and according to different studies conducted in recent years, is not true that marijuana is more harmful than snuff or alcohol, on the contrary, it is these last two that most damage caused to health, which is logical given that marijuana is a completely natural product, unlike alcohol and snuff that, although made with natural raw materials, then mixed with other chemicals that are really harm the human body in different aspects.

A clear example of this is the snuff: it is true that it is made from the leaves of the plant of tobacco, but at the same time make cigarette is subject to more than 5000 chemical compounds like tar, lead or ammonia that are seriously harmful to health. In addition, after heroin, snuff is the second most addictive drug and directly responsible for 25 types of known diseases, most of them related to the cardiorespiratory system.

In the case of alcohol, a study led by toxicologist Drik W. Lachenmeier, from Chemical Research Laboratory and Veterinary Karlsruhe in Germany, as can be read in an article published by EFE, showed that marijuana is 114 times safer than alcohol. In fact, the list of mortality resulting alcohol is the first in a list of drugs analyzed in this study, followed by heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and snuff.

By this I do not mean that marijuana has no harmful effects, because is as we all know (for something is a drug), but consumed so moderates and especially consumed for therapeutic purposes, brings more benefits than problems to our health. Something that snuff or alcohol do not contribute in any case.

consumption of alcohol always it has been associated with manliness

After finding this answer, in my head I was about another question, “why governments are so bent on wanting to prove the contrary?” And only I can think of two answers: first, that we live in a world where consumption of alcohol always it has been associated with manliness and one of the main vehicles to engage in relationships – whether between friends or business in the higher spheres – and the more expensive, better seen was. The second answer that comes to mind has to do, again, with money: the sale of alcohol contributes to the coffers of all states large amounts of money, the same as snuff and involves less investment to the government. Then, why go for another drug if with that more money is taken out! I guess that’s what many call themselves leaders.

Maybe more than one set the hue and cry when you read these lines, but you must know, first, that it is an opinion and, secondly, that my intention is not to harm anyone, but to offer my perspective on an aspect of health that cries out to heaven: why so much falsehood? For the money? Because, like it or not, we still live in a very macho world in which there are still many years to really ensure equality at the highest levels between men and women?

I guess there is some truth in both answers and missing a leg that they will have to answer and should do so as soon as possible, because every time there are more voices calling for clarification in this regard. Clarification that results in an increased release of the use and consumption of marijuana, of course, in a controlled and increasing the information about it. But knowing channeling.
And it is true that we live in a society where access to information is available to everyone, but not everyone knows to look for the information where it needs and trust unreliable sources or means that far from saying what think, they are governed by the rules of the colors that can work every day. Another sad theme of journalism, but that is beside the point in this opinion column.

Governments, let ‘s bet for trying, really, to marijuana as it deserves; to see the pros and cons of marijuana use and allow researchers to do studies with it to improve the lives of many people who, today, would have access to it in pharmacies throughout the whole world.
