Don't know: Abuse of either implies dysfunction in business, personal, or health issues. I know people like to say how much more unhealthy someone on alchohol may be and often it is true. However, the intellectual impairment and potential lung/cardiac disease from smoking may be worse for certain people who abuse marijuana.
