Marijuana proponents continue to try and use every avenue (pun intended) to attempt to sway the public — but it’s only so they can have their drugs legally, and they have zero concern for the safety for you and your children … Below, is a reference to a New York Slimes editorial:
The all-consuming intent, during driving test, is to show they are competent to drive when high — able to focus for short periods, is certainly not the same as the irresponsible behavior, so commonly exhibited by users.
Proven continuously, by ER visits, … (because of the increased potency of the NEW POT’s THC levels) it’s a spurious theory that alcohol consumption decreases when young people begin to use marijuana; obviously “academics” who (favor legalization) do not read the studies which real-world preventionists, see all too often.
Serious and fatal collisions show that mixing substances (marijuana and alcohol) is accelerating in our youth, commonly found, after-the-fact, … if at all!
As a former user, I reject the premise. Changing life-safety issues to allow more deaths via DUI should NOT be rushed into without significant data.
- Few states even test for marijuana in fatal collisions where alcohol is involved!
- Your insurance rates are negatively impacted because insurance companies do not bother to find out which of their drivers have “medical conditions” … which supposedly “require” self-medication with pot.
- In rare cases, during “accident” investigations, do police access the records to find if a driver is a “medical marijuana” card-holder …
- THC is fat soluble and therefore, when burning fat, users can remain impacted by smoking pot for days and weeks … and reminded they need to get high, … again.
