Alcohol vs Illegal Drugs

News about alcoholAlcohol is more dangerous than illegal drugs like heroin, ecstasy and crack cocaine, a new study has said.

A study of what, Amy Winehouse's second album?

Researchers rated alcohol the most dangerous substance based on the overall dangers to the individual and society as a whole.

I guess what they're saying is, if you're going on a work's Christmas party you'd better get off your tits first. That might be the best advice ever printed in a paper.

Professor David Nutt's team analysed how addictive a drug is and how it harms the human body as well as other factors like environmental and socio-economic costs, such as health care, social services, and prison.

They found heroin, crack cocaine and methamphetamine to be the most lethal to individuals. When considering their wider social effects, alcohol, heroin and crack cocaine were the most dangerous. But overall, alcohol outranked all other substances.

Typical. They're not thinking about the positive effects of a drug on society. If it was for alcohol most of those DNA tests on The Jeremy Kyle Show would be pointless. And then what would I do in the mornings?
