Drinking beer has holidays such as St. Patrick's Day, and Octoberfest. Marijuana comes with 4/20. In my observation, drinking beer has caused more bar fights, drunk driving deaths, and abuse on children. smoking marijuana seems to calm the nerves and open a third eye for some.
The question of whether alcohol or marijuana is worse for health is being debated once again. Each substance has different effects on the body.
In 2017, it was rated that more than 30,000 Americans died from alcohol-induced causes in 2014. There have been zero documented deaths from marijuana use. Drinking beer is more harmful for the brain than using marijuana.
