Weed Versus Crystal Meth…Why Weed Should Never Be Labeled In ‘Drug’ Category (Video)

With the recent developments of marijuana legalization in Colorado and rumors of New York to be the next state to legalize the herb, we can’t help but think back to all the stigmas weed has endured throughout the years. For centuries, America has popularized weed as the “gateway drug,” giving parents a reason to freak out when their kids were caught with dime bags in their backpacks.

However, anyone who has ever smoked the reefer, or been in contact with its effects, knows that it’s absurd to label weed a “drug,” the same umbrella term term under which meth, crack and bath salts fall. It’s less dangerous than alcohol, yet gets the same stigma as crack cocaine.

Weed is not a drug, it’s a medicine. It doesn’t make people want to jump out of six story windows or eat a homeless man’s face. It’s mostly comprised of sitting in basements, listening to Simon and Garfunkel records. If the biggest danger of weed is finishing a tub of ice cream, then America has become soft. This video of marijuana versus crystal meth tackles the issue head on with a debate between the two “drugs,” and I think it’s safe to say the nug comes out on top.
