138. Well, it takes a significant amount of alcohol to get alcohol poisoning...
Edited on Sun Mar-20-11 11:45 AM by phleshdef
...its not like swallowing a bunch of pills in one sitting or shooting one too-strong dose of heroine into your blood stream or snorting way too much cocaine up your nose all at once. I think the nature of drinking alcohol qualifies it to be safe enough for people to not easily overdose on it so it should remain legal. Most people who drink do not get alcohol poisoning, ever. They just don't take it that far.

And yea, I'm not sure how marijuana overdose would even be possible. I'd pass out before I ever got close enough.
