In an interview with the New Yorker, President Barack Obama declared marijuana is no more dangerous than alcohol.
"...I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don't think it is more dangerous than alcohol," Obama said.
