Study: Alcohol, Tobacco Worse Than Drugs

Dangerous drugs, artfully arranged 

Sorry ravers, this study is sure to have absolutely zero impact on U.S. drug policy. God forbid we base our policies on FACTS, right? 

AP story:

New “landmark” research finds that alcohol and tobacco are more dangerous than some illegal drugs like marijuana or Ecstasy and should be classified as such in legal systems, according to a new British study. … 

Heroin and cocaine were ranked most dangerous, followed by barbiturates and street methadone. Alcohol was the fifth-most harmful drug and tobacco the ninth most harmful. Cannabis came in 11th, and near the bottom of the list was Ecstasy.
