Is beer worse than weed?

I wouldn't say one is worse than the other in terms of psychological affects,but in terms of bodily harm weed is much less dangerous then alcohol. The use of marijuana in a smoked form affects the lungs, to what extent is unknown.While the consumption of cannabis in a vaporized or eatable form seems to have no negative health affects. There are also tests being done by some UK scientists to see the long term affects of cannabis, while lung damage is one, they believe marijuana may also cause schizophrenia in some persons. The consumption of liquor in small amounts may actually be positive to your health but the affects of alcohol in large amounts are much more apparent and devastating, while not only affecting the liver, alcohol also damages the brain in such a manner that learning may become very very difficult. As well as the possibility of overdose, which is a physical impossibility with cannabis. Your talking the lesser of 2 evils, While alcohol affects both the brain and liver, the affects of cannabis are to the lungs, but only when smoked. Bottom line is that you shouldn't do either, but marijuana does less long term bodily damage than alcohol.

Was Napoleon worse than Hitler?

That could be a matter of opinion. The general opinion is that Adolf Hitler was way worse than Napoleon. Although Napoleon was a ruthless dictator, Hitler committed heinous crimes against his own people and those of other countries, including genocide. Napoleon did commit some atrocities, but these were mainly against the citizens of countries he was invading and not of France. I agree with this answer im just going to add on to it. Yes, It is a matter of opinion because those whose ancestors who were effected by Napolean would hate Napolean and those grandparents and brothers and sisters and parents who were affected by Hitler would hate Hitler. Theres many reasons ton dislike what both these leaders have done.The Napoleonic Wars was the era of almost continuous warfare that followed the overthrow of the French monarchy is traditionally split into three parts: . The Revolution itself (including all internal conflicts) . The Revolutionary Wars during which France fought international wars as a Republic . The Napoleonic Wars, during which France fought international wars as an Empire Hitler however was an evil man on many levels. Hitler ordered the killing, because he believed that the Jews were his powerful enemies, bent on destroying him. For Hitler the Jews were like windmills to Don Quixote. The best proof of Hitler's sickness is his behavior at the end of the war. When the Russians were only miles away, he was holed in the bunker and spent his time shuffling non-existing divisions or ordering increased production of tanks and aircrafts, in non-existing factories. He lost completely the touch with reality. His outward appearance was pitiful; his hands trembled, and he walked scooped, with difficulty. It looked like that he suffered from Parkinson's disease, but medical experts say that Parkinsonism affects only the motor coordination. It doesn't cause detachment from reality. There is no doubt that Hitler suffered from general paresis and a powerful nation, followed a syphilitic leader, on a path of war and destruction. The insanity of one man was superimposed on a whole nation. Hitler sent Jews,Gypsies,Slavs,and other "Aryans"(Non Fully German people) to concentration camps. One story was a girl named Anne Frank. Look her up, she has her own book translated into dozens of languages.

Is alcohol worse than ecstasy?

Define "worse." This is a perfect example of why the world is going down the hole. Worse for you? No. "ecstasy" is no longer the same compound that was taken in the eighties. It is made on the streets with a coctail of many different compounds to resemble the original formula, often using drugs such as amphetamines (speed) and ketamine (an animal tranquilyzer) which are in no way good for you by themselves. Underground chemists try to reproduce the original formula but do not have access to the precursors that are necessary so they use solvents to separate the chemicals from such things as paint and sealants. and the chemicals they use to separate the precursors are not always extracted completely which can leave deadly coctails which can, in short, cause immediate death. Alcohol is much "better."
