Americans Believe Sugar is Worse Than Pot
Before you get too excited about the title of this article, remember this is just what Americans think! No smart people like doctors or scientists were involved in the making of that title.
NBC News/Wall Street Journal polled 1,000 people about topics ranging from politics to health to religion and released the results this week.
The survey found that out of four substances- marijuana, sugar, alcohol and tobacco- almost half of people said cigarettes are the worst for health, Alcohol came in second at 24%, while just 8% named marijuana. It seems all this talk of calories and fat has finally started to make an impact- 15% said sugar is the most harmful substance.
But remember, stoners, that even if sugar poses more of a health hazard than marijuana, it’s worth noting that too much of the latter will probably lead to excessive consumption of the former!
