14. just not true (on the carcinogenic)
and to argue that THC is not addictive at all? It certainly doesnt rise to the level of nicotine or some of the other drugs sure, but remember there is not only physical addiction but also psychological addiction.

Marijuana is not "much safer" than alcohol. Both affect your ability to make rational decisions, both slow down your ability to process information and both could lead young adults to have unprotected sex, drive under the influence or make other poor decisions because of the influence both have.

I think it naive to believe that because a parent drinks with their kids, that their kids are only going to drink with their parents.
