I'm interested to see people's views on this because many people on here have a huge problem dating someone who smokes weed but have no problem with them drinking alcohol. I don't understand how people can be accepting of one and not the other.
Would you rather date someone who drank alcohol or smoked marijuana?

I'm biased against alcohol because my stepfather's a total alcoholic and he's a dick, all the time but especially when he's drinking.
In my experience alcohol is more likely to make people violent.
The issue with weed is that you tend to smoke it which is obviously an issue because smoking raises your risk of getting cancer a lot. I've lived with a guy who smoked a lot of weed also and he was constantly coughing and retching, because the smoke damaged his throat I think, but that's more about smoking than the weed itself.
Alcohol is also extremely harmful to your health though and on top of that is way more physically addictive.
I know weed has been linked with schizophrenia in men.. but I'm not very knowledgeable about this.
The issue of weed being a 'gateway drug' is pretty nonsensical to me because literally that would stop being a problem if it were legal.
Also I'm very much in favour of hemp because using it to make paper would be very environmentally friendly, and it can be used in various prescription medicines, and it just has a lot of uses as well as for getting high
I'd rather date someone who smoked weed than who drank a lot1

I think both are likely bad for you, just in different ways and to different degrees.
I'm kinda of the opinion that alcohol is almost always bad for you. I mean, yeah, sure, there are studies about alcohol consumption in moderation being beneficial for blood pressure and antioxidants, but a quick jog and a pitcher of green tea can give you the same thing and be healthier.
Marijuana, on the other hand, gets a lot of free passes because it's "natural," etc., but smoking ANYTHING isn't gonna be good for a person. I could smoke a bundle of organic kale, for example, and it ain't gonna be good for me. LOL it's just a terrible drug delivery system.
Edible marijuana is probably the least damaging option, and I don't think my partner having an occasional pot brownie would make me freak the f* out. I mean, every once in a blue moon I pine for a double cheeseburger, and I'm logical enough to realize that it's really not much different, if at all.
My partner smoking marijuana, though, would probably bother me. Unless it was like a super-once-in-a-blue-moon thing. The main thing for me is that I'm super sensitive to smoke, and I also don't wanna be around pot a lot. But I truly don't have a holier than thou attitude about it; it's just not my thing.1
