Russell Brand has raised another interesting question – Marijuana Vs Sugar: Which drug is most dangerous? In a new video, Brand compares marijuana, which is 114 times safer than alcohol, to America’s drug of choice – sugar – and explains how sugar is more hazardous than cannabis. In this video, he also poked fun at Channel 4 News’ Jon Snow’s experience of taking super-strength skunk.
Snow took a concentrated dose of cannabis for a new TV documentary looking at the impact of drugs on the brain. He said, “I knew within five minutes, or so, of taking the first two balloons, that I had taken skunk. What was happening to me outstripped anything I have ever experienced… I would never do it again. I can fully believe this week’s figures that tell us that 25 per cent of all psychosis treated in Britain is associated with smoking skunk”.
