On the other hand, weed has no significant health risks – and studies show that it even decreases risky behavior and violent tendencies. The American Addiction Center states that while alcohol exacerbates underlying mental illnesses like depression and anxiety, cannabis is proven to reduce anxiety and help patients in their fight against depression.
In addition, cannabis has never caused a single overdose. In fact, it has saved lives through its treatment of epilepsy and cancer.
Also, cannabis does not kill brain cells (as alcohol is known to do). Conversely, as detailed in a study conducted in 2009, cannabis contains neuroprotective properties that literally protect the brain from damage.
Finally, few users of cannabis report developing dependence or addiction. For those who do, it is more mental than physical.
