Cannabis More Than 100 Times Safer Than Alcohol, Study Finds
You are 114 times more likely to die from overdosing on alchohol than you are from cannabis, a recent study has found. The report, published in Scientific Reports journal, compared the risks associated with 10 substances using the margin of exposure approach. This method compares a lethal dose of the drug with the dosage typically taken by recreational users. Substances tested included alcohol and nicotine, as well as illicit drugs including cocaine, heroin, ecstasy (MDMA) and methamphetamines.
