    LOL!! You guys are funny. But, in reality, NOTHING mind altering is safe to drive under the influence of. Potheads need to go down just like drunks.
    I've never been able to understand why a Republican contributor is a 'fat cat' and a Democratic contributor of the same amount of money is a 'public-spirited philanthropist'.

    As for Sawyer-- good to hear a pot smoker admit it messes you up, and you know not to drive high. But, just like drunks, some will not. Stinks that we need laws to control people that won't control themselves, but it seems we do.
    But we do. I can personally attest to that. I am on probation for DWI. Probation ends on 2 September. At that time, I am going to enjoy my first beer in two and a half years, and you can bet your ass I won't be driving either. LOL.

    I acknowledge the benefits of THC, but I think it's medically unnecessary to expose a patient ti harmful chemicals and carcinogens in the delivery of the drug. I made reference to dronabinol. This is a medication that delivers THC. Marijuana is not necessary.
    I found this on the net:
    Last week I ordered 60 -10mg- Marinol (Dronabinol) tablets from
    advancedpainclinic.com Total cost was only $420 and this is for a
    months supply.
    I received them in 48 hours and everything was fine, no problems. No
    medical records are required all you have to do is fill in a survey
    every month as
    part of the medical trials. I used to use Hydro and Nortab but this
    seems to work much better.


    Only $420/month, $5880/year? And from a non-prescription source. Is this what you had in mind?

    Then let's have the mods change the title to alcohol, and talk about that.

    Feel free to ask them, but the comparison of alcohol to weed is completely germane to this discussion. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to take a look at the prohibition era and realize that we have prohibition now, only with a different substance. Also, statistics have borne out the fact that many more people die in alcohol related accidents than in those with people who are under the influence of marijuana. Still, that does not excuse people for driving under the influence of weed. They should be punished, just as if they were drunk on alcohol. However, the argument against the legalization of marijuana is a dishonest one if it does not include banning alcohol again, just like they did in the Roaring Twenties. I am in favor of legalizing marijuana and putting the exact same restrictions on it that exist at the present time with alcohol.

    Afterthought - As George Carlin once said, there is actually one difference between marijuana and alcohol - With marijuana, you don't end up puking on your shoes. LOL.

    Aside from that there is no tolerance with weed, you smoke it your high period. There is no inbetweens no levels...With alcohol you can drink one or two drinks and not be impaired and there are levels of impairment depending on how much you drink....as I said there is no tolerance with weed you smoke it your high period
    Wow. Who did the tests that resulted in this new information? It overturns everything that has been done before. Especially the nonlinearity with getting high with weed. I want to read the tests!

    Any article that starts out with a false-ism: Heavy MJ use will turn your tongue green, has to be taken with a boulder of salt.
    Can marijuana turn your tongue green

    The guy was found to have marijuana and 'other drugs' in his system. Was he nodding off because the other drug was heroin? They don't say.

    Someone on the first page of this thread said that "There is no tolerance for smoking marijuana". This is bunk. Every drug known to man comes with the tolerance that grows as the person takes the drug more and more. Marijuana is not exempt from this fact.

    THC stays in your system for ~33 days. Take one toke (must inhale) and stay away from your car for a month. That seems fair.

    We won't have this problem in Texas. Gov. Perry doesn't want the government to micro-manage the citizenry. That's why we can text while we're driving. Cool huh?

    They may do that, but they're wrong. If they were correct, there would be plenty more DUI's and fatal accidents with only marijuana being present. As of now those are few and far between.

    I would love to know how the hell you came to this conclusion, or who pounded it into your brain. It's fairly obvious you have either had very limited exposure to marijuana, or you've never touched the stuff.

    I can go take a hit right now, and be perfectly fine. If I take 4-5 more hits, I'll be high. 5 more hits after that, and I'll probably be stoned.
