The usual answer is that illegal drugs are illegal because they are dangerous. The figures, though, do not really bear that out. The danger varies widely from drug to drug. The least risky is cannabis, which has never been shown to have killed anybody. The most dangerous are opiates (ie, heroin and methadone), which kill about 1.5% of their users each year, according to London’s Institute for the Study of Drug Dependence. Tobacco kills 0.9% of its users each year and alcohol 0.5% of them. Ecstasy, about which there has been huge controversy, kills 0.0002% of its users each year. A motorbike journey is three times as likely to kill you as taking a tablet of street ecstasy and—astonishingly—flying on a civil airliner is one-and-a-half times as dangerous as dropping an “e”.

Ma saan aru küll, et lühemad kommentaarid on popimad, aga here comes:
Statistika, mein freund!
Need surma põhjused arvestavad sisuliselt ainult üledoose, mille kätte inimesed, kes väidavad, et nad regulaarselt ainet tarvitavad, surevad suht harva. Kanepi puhul on võimatu üledoosi kätte surra (pobiseb midagi retseptoritest ja retikulaarformatsioonist). See aga ei tähenda, et ka kanepil vms poleks märkimisväärseid kõrvalmõjusid. Enamik neist on näiteks märkimisväärseks riskiteguriks skisofreeniasse haigestumisel. Have fun!
