I've been saying this for years -- that the legal drug of choice, alcohol, has a terrible effect on society.
Now a new British study has concluded that yes indeed, alcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin and crack cocaine.
British experts evaluated such drugs as alcohol, cocaine, heroin, ecstasy and marijuana, ranking them based on how destructive they are to the individual user and to society as a whole.
Guess what No. 2 most dangerous drug is?
Heroin is a distant third.
From drunk drivers to violence at home, alcohol is not a nice drug.
Too bad the prohibition didn't work.
At least the world has wised up to the dangers of tobacco.
