Washington: US President Barack Obama has reportedly said that smoking 'marijuana no more dangerous than alcohol.'

Obama made the comments while speaking to an international magazine and said that he smoked pot as a kid and consider it as a bad habit, as per news reports.

However, it's effect is no more dangerous than one would have after consuming alcohol, Obama reportedly said.

The comment was made by the US president in the wake of legalising the drug in Colorado and Washington.

He also added that it will be incorrect to think that legalising marijuana would be instrumental in putting an end to social problems.
