According to a recent survey by The Tylt, a relatively new polling website geared towards young people, a significant majority of millennials consider consuming cannabis and related products to be safer than drinking alcohol. With close to 88% of respondents stating that they think that marijuana is safer than alcohol and over 85% confirming that they think it is actually good for your health, their generation appears to have an overwhelmingly positive mindset when it comes to cannabis.
Despite its long held and worldwide status as an accepted “social lubricant,” drinking alcohol regularly has some potentially devastating side effects that could affect many different aspects of one’s life and millennials seem to be well aware of that. Considering the health issues that can have a dire effect on pretty much every organ in the human body, the dangerous addiction that often accompanies heavy alcohol use, to the negative social and economic impact that follows the addiction, millenials are finding marijuana to be a great alternative to booze.
