Health Costs of Pot Tiny Compared to Tobacco or Alcohol



The health costs associated with marijuana are $20 per year versus $800 for tobacco and $165 for alcohol, according to this new infographic from designer Adrienne Erin, who works at the detox business Clarity Way.

In her infographic, Erin runs through the latest polls, the national legalization picture, Colorado and Washington legalization details, and more to create a nice little primer on what's going on. The $20 per year annual health cost of pot can be traced back to the Canada's national health department: Health Canada, in 2006. Check the infographic below:
