Crack is whack, but alcohol is worse? What’chu talkin’ bout Willis? Somebody is going to have to show more scientific evidence behind this study because nobody is buyin’ it in the hood. This study was done in London, so there may be some differences between how crack and alcohol are used socially.
The experts overseas weigh the harm of drugs a lot differently than we do. Their Independent Scientific Committee on Drugs used the physical, psychological, and social problems caused by the drugs. Somehow, alcohol achieved a whopping 72 out of 100 beating out crack and heroine for the top spot of harmful drugs.
Maybe the long-term effect of alcohol on society overall makes it the most lethal. How many people drive drunk feeling fearless. Crack does give one pause. They usually have a nerve problem. Drunks feel they can do anything…even go to work that way. How many people slip in the bathroom for nip during the day? Hardly no one sneaks and does a little CRACK at lunchtime thinking no one will notice. Ever heard of a functional alcoholic? There’s a lot more of them than functional anything else.
