Why does the FAA say it's okay to ingest a poison such as alcohol, but THC, which has an extremely low toxicity, is not allowed???

I know they don't test for it durring exams, but employed pilots will be subjected to drug tests, correct?

1) It is illegal.
2) The half life is so long that it affects people for up to several days, depending on the level of usage.
3) It is not as safe as you are led to believe.
