EU Says Marijuana Less Dangerous Than Tobacco

by | 28th, June 2008

ON July 1, the Netherlands will bring in a ban smoking in bars and restaurants. The EU has ruled it so.

The Health Ministry says the ban will apply to coffee shops that sell marijuana. The tobacco is outlawed but the weed is tolerated.

“It’s the world upside down: In other countries they look for the marijuana in the cigarette. Here they look for the cigarette in the marijuana,” says Jason den Enting, manager of coffee shop Dampkring.

Thanks to the EU, stoners will take in more marijuana smoke with each hit.

Is this a sign that the EU considers weed less dangerous than tobacco? And if so, why is cannabis illegal here?
