Wahahahahah. Yeah. That's why we ever hear stories of people developing anything analogous to kidney stones, or cancer, or causing retardation in children. Or at the very least, causing spectacular car accidents that killed them, their family, or friends. Somebody, find me some non-hyper right leaning news outlet that reports deaths as a direct result of taking pot.

The only thing non-safe about it, is that you can be abused and thrown into prison. Life in jail for being caught with marijuana 4 times.
And since there's such overcrowding in jails(as a result of stupid laws), it may happen that he ends up in a private jail, where forced labor is rampant, and abuses can be worse.
. The rest of his life sitting in a little cage probably because some ultra rich company that's owned by some even more ridiculously rich company, lobbied our government to make laws on everything tougher.

You know, I knew someone who was a loser after smoking pot. Guess what? He was a loser since he was a kid, way before he knew what pot was. I was also friends with a pretty well off engineer in Arizona was always stoned, always got good grades, and drove like a pro(on the other hand, I never drove in
his car, and kinda suggested he's an ass for driving stoned, considering the lack of research regarding that activity)
Some plant that makes you giddy, and a bit hungry isn't going to destroy your life, or give you "reefer madness." If you're willing to let your whole life go because a friggin' happy plant, its liable that anything could have destroyed you in the first place.
