It's a drug, but I can tell you it's way more serious than just cannabis because its effect on health is really bad. But as for cannabis, it's not like that at all, it has a ton of health benefits, and after reading an article by the link, I even decided to start growing it at my place. But I'd never deal with hard drugs for sure.
