The two most dangerous drugs in the US are Alcohol and tobacco, I would just suggest further perspective.
Not dramatic at all. If pot becomes legal to the point where you can sell it openly, including in stores, then it won't take long for large scale, corporations to take over the market. And then it will become regulated, taxed, etc. Sure anyone can grow it in their yard. Anyone can grow tobacco too. But they don't. I agree with your assessment of tobacco and alcohol being the two most dangerous drugs. (Prescription drugs deserve a nod too if you can take them as a whole.) But a large part of their danger is derived from their availability and affordability...the same affordability and availability that would come with legalized.
