Same question: Both weed and alcohol are bad for you. If you are shopping for an answer that you would like, that is not helpful for you.
Have a healthy diet, exercise 30 minutes/day, drink plenty of water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. For nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.
Wish you good health!
