Weed helps mentally and brain cells.do you believe we got some cocaine in many of our drugs we take,just note too much of everything is bad even water
Cig is 100% bad
Weeds is far better but not much addicted

Sunnycliff:
Cigarette is consumed with warning while we're have no warning, no refining process and no packaging

because its illegal. If its legalised, it will fall under the jurisdiction of NAFDAC, meaning farmers and dispensary stores will need a registration number to be involved.
Legalizing MJ will cripple the income of american tobacco companies making high revenue from Nigeria. Legalizing weed will mean the average igbobian can plant his weed in his house and be smoking, no more need for cigarettes.

Thought provoking I would say..

Cigarette contains nicotine and methane which obviously kills. It has led death of millions globally on annual bases, and unfortunately, even thousands have died as a result of secondhand smoke exposure..that means, even a non-smoker is " liable to die young" when exposed to a smoker.

Despite these facts, cigarette is still legal. Isn't it hypocritical to make weed and other hard drugs illegal while cigarette remains a menace flexing freely in the society?

You have answered ur question... You said other hard drugs! I don't need to say anything more...

There are laws governing the manufacturing of Tobacco products (cigarettes) and it varies among countries. The laws stipulate the amount of Nicotine, Tar and CO contents that are permissible in a stick of cigarette. Such can not be determined for weed and marijuana. Cigarettes are manufactured under strict supervision by the regulatory agencies (such as NAFDAC,NDLEA & SON in Nigeria).
Above all, the health warning written on the pack is enough to scare away first timers and they are only sold to adults (18 years and above).

Smoke cigarettes, then smoke weed on a different day, are the results the same?

Your comparison should be with alcohol not cigarettes

How does nicotine or methane kill a consumer of cigarettes?

They're illegal because they influence behavior while cigs do not.

The fact is tobacco is a white man produce which they made it so to be sold to the world making it legal. Weed is a coloured man produce so the white govt controlled the inflow and outflow as well putting a ban on it making it illegal. They also know that weed is a plant and it is medicinal but they play ignorance. Tobacco kills ,it kills alot compared to weed.. if you can see in the past few years, they are beginning to accept weed for Individuals to smoke but they are trying to ensure that the white elite have control over the market using a system that works for them.

End of story! #TAYLORGANG!

Weed may have mental state altering effect (makes one high), but it has no long term adverse effect. Most developed countries have legalised it after years of study. Weed also get prescribed by doctors for chronic pains especially in cancer patients.
Cigarette on the other hand has zero medicinal effect, predisposes to lung cancer, it's a major risk factor for heart related diseases. I have no idea why cigarette still remains legal globally why weed is considered illegal.

Cigarette and alcohol are very harmful, and can kill YOU, yet sold to any adult. But weed have never killed anyone. I wonder why it's illegal too, it makes no sense.

Cigarette is only a danger to the smoker. Weed and other hard drugs can make you a danger to others around you. It’s that simple really.

It’s not the governments job to ban all consumer goods that have harmful effects on the consumer. Half the things we eat and drink would be banned in that case.
