Well, many people drink alcohol because they like the way that it tastes, or to relax, or as part of tradition or on holidays, or as a social activity, or even sometimes as a combination of some of those reasons-but many of those people drink alcohol without getting drunk.

Everybody who smokes marijuana smokes it for the sake of getting high. Not everybody who drinks alcohol, drinks alcohol for the sake of getting drunk.

This article states what I'm trying to say perfectly, and also some other interesting facts about this legalization debate in general.

http://www.heritage.org/research/rep...ld-just-say-no

"There are several possible explanations for alcohol’s unique status: For most people, it is not addictive; it is rarely consumed to the point of intoxication; low-level consumption is consistent with most manual and intellectual tasks; it has several positive health benefits; and it is formed by the fermentation of many common substances and easily metabolized by the body."

"Alcohol differs from marijuana in several crucial respects. First, marijuana is far more likely to cause addiction. Second, it is usually consumed to the point of intoxication. Third, it has no known general healthful properties, though it may have some palliative effects. Fourth, it is toxic and deleterious to health. Thus, while it is true that both alcohol and marijuana are less intoxicating than other mood-altering drugs, that is not to say that marijuana is especially similar to alcohol or that its use is healthy or even safe.
In fact, compared to alcohol, marijuana is not safe. Long-term, moderate consumption of alcohol carries few health risks and even offers some significant benefits. For example, a glass of wine (or other alcoholic drink) with dinner actually improves health.[8] Dozens of peer-reviewed medical studies suggest that drinking moderate amounts of alcohol reduces the risk of heart disease, strokes, gallstones, diabetes, and death from a heart attack.[9] According to the Mayo Clinic, among many others, moderate use of alcohol (defined as two drinks a day) “seems to offer some health benefits, particularly for the heart.”[10] Countless articles in medical journals and other scientific literature confirm the positive health effects of moderate alcohol consumption."

However, there are also millions of people in the world that drink alcoholic beverages without getting drunk at all. They drink small amounts of alcohol, and they also drink in moderation. As I stated before, not everybody who drinks alcohol drinks for the sake of getting drunk.

http://philanthropy2012.hubpages.com...eed-or-Alcohol

This article states this.

"The reason weed is banned is because it causes immediate psychological effects from just small amounts. Furthermore, the point of smoking weed is to get high whilst the point of drinking is not always to get drunk.

When people compare weed with alcohol they think about people who are high and people who are drunk. But most drinkers do not get drunk whilst most people who smoke weed get high. It is not common for people to smoke tiny quantities of weed to get a small effect, but it is social standard to have a few drinks with your friends or partner to relax. This is the core reason for why cannabis is illegal and alcohol is not.

Exactly. Not everybody drinks alcohol for the sake of getting drunk (ie, intoxication). Unlike marijuana, which is a substance that people only use for the sake of getting stoned with it, (ie, intoxication).
