An impossible ?: This is comparing apples to oranges. Large amounts of either can be harmful, but in different ways. Energy drinks contain harmless things, like amino acids and vitamins (worthless pretty much, but harmless). Some contain sugar. All contain caffeine, which in large doses or in sensitive individuals cause problems. Too much weed is most damaging for younger people, can impair learning and lower IQ
