Do you consider marijuana riskier than alcohol or tobacco?
More than half of British Columbians believe marijuana use is less harmful than alcohol use, according to a new Angus Reid Poll.
Of the poll's 800 respondents, 59 per cent said they believe regular marijuana use is less harmful than regular alcohol use. It also found that 54 per cent believe marijuana is neither dangerous nor addictive. Moreover, 51 per cent said they do not think marijuana is a gateway drug that could lead to the use of other dangerous drugs like heroin.
The poll was commissioned by Stop the Violence BC, an advocacy group for the legalization of marijuana, with a focus on "broadening the public's understanding of the link between cannabis prohibition and gang violence."
The poll results coincide with another report that found funding for anti-marijuana law enforcement in both Canada and the United States has failed to decrease the marijuana supply.
According to the report, also released by Stop the Violence BC, at least $260 million has been spent in anti-drug efforts since 2007, but there has nonetheless been a 70 per cent increase in arrests for cannabis-related offenses.
Dr. Evan Wood, founder of Stop the Violence BC, also said that B.C. youth currently has easier access to marijuana than to tobacco and alcohol.
When we asked the CBC Community "Should marijuana be legalized?" in an unscientific survey, 90 per cent of over 25,000 responses answered "Yes."

Blair Witch Star Heather Donahue Quit Hollywood to Grow Pot

She shot to indie-film fame as a doomed, blubbering camper/documentarian huddled in the great outdoors and fearing for her life in 1999's The Blair Witch Project.
But now, Heather Donahue has a much different project to discuss: growing marijuana!
Donahue, nearly 37, writes of an unexpected career change in her new book Growgirl: How My Life After The Blair Witch Project Went to Pot, out Jan. 5.
The former scream queen discovered high-grade medial marijuana after doctors prescribed it to treat her PMS. It became a new job after the actress, frustrated by a lack of opportunities, gave up on Hollywood.
"I took all my stuff into the desert related to my acting career and burned it all," she told the Philadelphia Inquirer. Everything except the iconic blue cap worn in Blair Witch.
"That's the only thing I kept. I figured if things got really bad, I could always sell it on eBay," she joked.
Donahue met a marijuana grower from "Nuggettown," a pot-growing community in Northern California. She explained that she was "always an avid gardener," and decided to grow and sell high-grade medical marijuana herself.
"I became a solitary country girl," she explained.
Donahue gave up the agricultural project after she decided to write her book -- and after a friend got arrested.
Will medical marijuana be legalized? "I think you're going to see [medical marijuana] on a lot of ballots over the next few years," she to the Philadelphia Inquirer. "There has been enough support for medical use if not outright legalization that I don't think it will go away."
