Yes indeed. Alcohol, tobacco, and (arguably but it's on my list) caffeine are the most dangerous drugs in terms of health risks, addictivity, and/or aberrant behavior, or just plain lives ruined. Bad reactions to correctly prescribed legal drugs cause more deaths and hospitalizations than all illicit drugs combined. If you want to talk about erroneous prescriptions or about the abuse of legal drugs, the stats are astronomical. In all of human history no one has ever died from using marijuana. Deaths from other illegal drugs are never reported accurately: no coroner or other authority has ever stepped forward to refute the well-supported contention that the vast majority of people who die after using heroin, coke, LSD, etc., also have really high blood alcohol levels. It's the combination of effects that kills them, more than any one drug.
