Alky of 30+ years here.
Marijuana helped me finally quit the sauce 18 months ago.
However it did start getting out of hand (the weed) as I was abusing it (at home on my own) to escape my depression and anxiety, which did work! To
BUT the downsides were my short term memory and memory in general was TERRIBLE, and since quitting this too (6 months ago), it made me realise I was
living in a fog of confusion most days.
Marijuana like most things is fine with moderation though, but if you are unable to moderate it (consistently & long term), and start using more and
more, it does overall 'reduce' productivy, more for some or than others.
Booze is way worse than weed in my opinion, but again if you can moderate booze (consistently & long term) then shouldn't be too much of a problem
The problem is, there are too many people (users) who cannot moderate, and there are /could be millions of reasons for this 😕 but it IS a problem.
