Drugs that cause most harm: Scoring drugs | The Economist.

At least one of the commentators felt my pain when I looked at this graph.  So much of the analysis on the harmful affects of drugs like alcohol vs marijuana vs heroin or crack seem to neglect to take into account the fact that there are hundreds of thousands more users of alcohol than any of the other drugs, probably combines. Except perhaps tobacco.  Until then you are not truly making a fair comparison.
