Both alcohol and marijuana are considered to be toxic substances. However, both are used by people mainly for recreational purposes – to have fun, to rest. For this reason, both alcohol and marijuana are used primarily at parties, celebrations, big loud companies, and so on. Yet is it ok to compare the two in terms of the effect they have on the human body? In fact, for each person, both alcohol and marijuana have an individual influence. Someone may just have a good time and become cheerful; others may slow down in their reactions; still, for others, there will be a panic and sometimes even a depression. The duration of the effect of these substances also varies individually. At the same time, both alcohol and marijuana are recognized as narcotic substances. And the effect of drugs, as is known, is the effect on the change of consciousness. In this case, the effect goes away – the consequences remain.

So, what do you think, are alcohol and marijuana the same in their effect?
