Replace alcohol?

Replace alcohol?  Ryan Cooper wants the government to fund research for a replacement for alcohol – because it's such a terrible recreational drug (highly addictive and physiologically damaging with heaving long-term use).  He makes the point that alcohol is worse in many ways than the currently illegal recreational drugs, including even heroin.

I'm not sure we need new research here.  Seems to me we just need to make the already existing, much safer drugs (like marijuana) legal.  Consumers can then freely choose to abstain, to use the safer drugs, or continue to use alcohol...
