@FAKEBACON...THC damages the immune system. Alcohol does not." Physicians have long observed that excessive alcohol consumption can lead not only to liver damage but also to increased illness and death from infectious diseases such as pneumonia. (See, for example, the writings of Philadelphia physician Benjamin Rush [1745â€“1813] [Rush 1943]). We now regard this increase in disease as the result of immunodeficiency caused by alcohol abuse. Further, there is reason to suspect that the organ damage, such as alcoholic liver disease, observed in people who drink alcohol heavily is at least partially caused by alcohol-triggered autoimmunity in which the immune system attacks the bodyâ€™s own tissues.

Because you think any material published before 1977 is erroneous, this was published just last year: "Alcohol consists of one substance only: ethanol. Marijuana contains more than 400 known chemicals, including the same cancer-causing substances found in tobacco smoke. Unlike cigarette smokers, pot smokers tend to inhale deeply and hold the smoke as long as possible to increase the effect of the drug, worsening the damage to the lungs.
Alcohol is eliminated from the body in a few hours, but THC stays in the body for weeks, possibly months, depending on the length and intensity of usage.

Lmao... someone actually quoted something from 1977 as if it were scientifically relevant in 2011. That's about half a step up from quoting Reefer Madness and expecting it to carry weight instead of just make people laugh at your for being a dumbass.
