A Quarter of American Beer Drinkers Say They’re Switching to Pot


The article makes no sense. In one sentence
they say 1 in 4 is buying weed instead of beer.
In the next paragraph they say weed will take
7% of beer sales from the beer industry.

That's a huge gap between 25% switching
to eweed, and 7% loss in beer sales. I refuse to
believe it anyway. Beer drinkers love beer,
weed is nothing like it. I would believe 25%
will buy weed instead of beer, but they aren't
beer drinkers anyway.

I'd have to agree. Some people, mostly college age, will possibly put their budget towards weed. But the average guy going to the bar for a few beers is not going to do so.

Beer is a social drink, you can sit
in a bar for a couple hours drinking
beer. You smoke dope for a couple
hours, you'll die. You smoke for a
few minutes and are high for a
few hours. It's a totally different
experience.

So you think you can continually smoke
modern weed for a couple hours? No
stopping, a hit every 90 seconds.

Really? Try it, I dare you. You won't die,
it will be much worse.

I am thinking the same thing
Alcohol is a strong drug. That's why I wont touch the stuff. No interest in being wasted.
So absurd
death due to marijuana overdose.

Yeah, try taking 45 shots of vodka in 60 minutes (one every 90 seconds)

According to this BAC calculator http://mcwell.nd.edu/your-well-being/physical-well-being/alcohol/blood-alcohol-concentration/bac-calculator/
a 180 pound male would have a BAC of 0.9798198529411765

Concentrations over 0.40 have a high probability of being lethal.

yet I have many times drank beer all evening long - not too often anymore. Sometimes no hangover or effect worth mentioning.
