8 Legal Substances More Dangerous Than Marijuana

Soda Unsafe

Soda, alcohol and other substances are legal in the U.S. even though they are known to cause severe harm to mankind. Meanwhile, scientific studies have proven that marijuana is a safe substance that also provides many medicinal benefits, yet it is still illegal.

The 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health report showed that 60% of marijuana users went on to try other drugs, which appears to justify the “marijuana is a gateway drug” theory, except when you learn that 88% of drug users used alcohol before any other drug. Another study revealed that marijuana does not contain chemical properties that are physically addictive. In comparison, all the substances listed below have been scientifically proven to be damaging and addictive to humans.

This list reveals eight substances that – however enjoyable or, at times, medically necessary they may be – are proven by science to be harmful to humans, yet they are all legal and fairly easily obtainable in the U.S.:

1. Sugar

2. Alcohol

3. Tobacco

4. Caffeine

5. Opiates (Painkillers)

6. Antidepressants

7. Stimulants

8. Steroids
