Victory in the War on Pot

Via Baltimore Crime, from the Examiner:
Sniffing beats smoking pot among young teens

Sniffing solvents is more popular than smoking marijuana for teenagers looking to get high, according to a new report from the University of Maryland Center for Substance Abuse Research.

Inhalants are the most popular type of drug among children 12 to 13, the report found, with more than 500,000 young teens experimenting with solvents.
Is there any question which of these drugs is worse for the body and mind? Huffing chemicals or smoking pot? I'd stake my impressive reputation on the statement that huffing chemicals is exponentially more dangerous than smoking pot at 12, 13, 16, 20 -- you name the age.

The best part about studies like these, is that you can actually imagine the ONDCP throwing together a press release and a blog post hailing this as a victory in the War on Drugs. We've beaten the scourge of marijuana, now onto paint thinners and varnish.
