EXETER, N.H. -- Democratic presidential candidate Mike Gravel told a group of high school students on Sunday that marijuana is safer than alcohol.
Speaking to a group of students at Phillips Exeter Academy, he said that he believes people should be able to buy marijuana in package stores.
"Alcohol is a heck of a lot worse than marijuana, and I'm sure a lot of you have tripped out on alcohol," Gravel said. "It's a lot safer to do it on marijuana."

Gravel has called for the decriminalization of minor drug offenses and better treatment for abuses of hard drugs.
A spokeswoman for Phillips Exeter said that candidates are free to express their opinions.
