    And after all of that you still refuse to address the question.
    "Your position is that it should be legal to drive drunk as long as you get home safely?"

    No - that it not my view about drunk driving. I was not discussing drunk driving.

    No, but that was your position with pot. Why the double standard? Are you going to take up the completely asinine dismissable arguement that being high doesn't affect your driving?

    Ok: there's being "high" or "under the influence of a substance" and then there's "having THC in your blood" - you can tell if someone's smoked weed and is 'high' - per that link I gave it specifies this.

    I thought you were clear on these differences between these things since you agree that testing THC levels is futile.

    And beyond stating these differences I can't help you much more - if you don't get what I am and am not discussing at this point then oh well.

    I don't think it's futile.

    If someone smokes and is under the influence should they be arrested for driving under the influence?

    Look I stopped reading some of these posts because its obvious some of you are either totally naive or being deceptive intentionally
    Marihuana is a psychotropic...it effects motor skills and its a killer....Hardly NO ONE just smokes weed...most weed users are cross addicts or users..coupling weed with alchohol or other drugs...dont even try to pass weed off as harmless please
    Where do you get that most weed users are cross addicts? Is this your perceptions because in your profession that's what you ran into. The people you never caught may have only been weed users.

    Re: Pot and driving:

    Every time any article appears implicating pot in an auto accident, especially if a life is taken, pot legalization experiences further setbacks.

    The only way the vanguard of opposition (older, female, married, with children) will accept legalization is if we can show that legalization won't kill more of their children.

    Studies have already shown that legalization will greatly increase traffic fatalities, not to mention make access for teenagers much easier just like an end to prohibition made alcohol so much easier for teens to get (parents' cupboards, 21 year-old older "bro/sis" purchase at the corner liquor store, etc.).

    Again .. it just seems that pot dens are the way to go.

    Then once the camel gets its nose under the tent ...
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    People who get high and operate a vehicle don't care about the legal status. I don't see the leap in logic that if marijuana was legal that they would decide to drive while under the influence of it.

    Actually, it's black market status makes it easier for kids to get it. Ask any kid which is easier for them to purchase, weed or alcohol?

    Until then, I'll just keep smoking hash browns.

    The arguement is more would partake because it is legal. It's certainly one of the reasons I no longer smoke.

    But driving under the influence would still be illegal so you still wouldn't do that even if it were legal to possess weed.

    And yet, people drink and drive.
