Why is it that cigarettes are legal and kill thousands daily, When marijuana is illegal and has killed no one?

There has never been hard proof of ANY fatalities assiciated with cannibis. Cigarettes kill daily and alcohol kills daily. When will politicians get this? (maybe they are too busy "toking up" themselves to give legal action to the weed. lol)

Update:

TO MOIRAES: Ive driven with people who were high on cannibis before. Cannibis doesnt kill people in road accidents. Bad Driving and alcohol kill people in road accidents.

    alcohol and tobacco make big money and the religious clowns will raise hell if mary jane gets legal,the government wont allow more research on medical marijuana simply because it will subside symptoms of certain diseases,so then drug companies loose money to a natural herb that they cant manufacture.politicians are too busy hating gays and taking over countries and making money off of war investments to notice.but when the government figures out how marijuana can make them billions,then it will become legal.

    LOL........smoking mary jane does not make you want to step out in front of a mack truck,it does not induce mania or psychosis,it will make you run to the fridge a few times though

    Well, my chronic friend, there is too much of a good thing going with the politicians with the payoffs. Everybody gets a piece of it when it's illegal. If they legalize it, they would have to tax it. Then only the government would make any money. On the bright side, you could get a 40 and some blunts in the same place.

    Tobacco owners are the politicians in DC.

    Marijuana is illegal only because Tobacco Owners do need to see competition in the Market...

    Adding:

    Alcohol Industry is similar to Tobacco, It is backed up by every politician in the US, and the Organized Crime they have been running the US since 1880 and now they're our politicians in DC.

    In fact, (Tobacco + Alcohol + firearms (weapons) + Power&Comm Comp + Petrol + Gambling + Prostitution + women slavery ) they are all related by one secret powerful source that lead nations to WW1 + WW2 + Korea + Seyam + War on Drugs+ Gulf War(1+2) + End of civ...

    Please do read and research, read about Skulls and Bones, read about zionism, the Mob, Global Economics (Globalization), New World Order.

    I hope to see more people in the US may become more educated and more aware of current cituations and more knowledgable of History in order to understand today's events.

    Avoid listening to priests in churches, do not beleive politicians, do not beleive TV + Paper + Radio, and do not listen to adults who are ignorant + racist + closed minded + been blindly lead.

    Its an exceedingly contraversial problem. One one hand, confident it could help the financial equipment, its not as undesirable as different issues. And its an herb. organic. on the different. Its a gateway drug. there is not any getting around that actuality. each and every physique I even have ever met who replaced into into drugs (of any style) had began with weed. human beings think of that in case you're making it criminal. Then its purely some steps removed from making ALL drugs criminal.

    I agree, alcohol his 100 times worse than cannabis. can you imagine a high person wanting to fight someone? They'd say "Oh ya? Never mind, I need a potato chip". Of course that that is a dramatization, but that is the jist of it.

    Alcohol has no positives, and no medicinal purposes. Whereas, marijuana does.

    Apparently it has killed your brain cells. Drugs of all types can lead to death. It does not matter if it is alcohol, prescribed meds or wacky tobaccy. Do enough and you will die. And if you don't think that your weed does not kill, try smoking some of it and step out in front of a Mac truck. I think the answer will have a great impact on you.

    Marijuana was legal once, in this time called the 60's when the beatles were together. but then some fundie b@$t@rds wanted the Beatles to end because they contradicted their teachings with their great music, so they made LSD and marijuana illegal. it's this phenomenom called moral panic and it sucks @$$.

    Load of crap. Both should be illegal. Last year, we had three car accidents down the major road near my house caused by teenagers and young adults smoking pot. 6 people died. It doesn't kill people? Bullshit. I'll leave it at that.
