    Re: Pot and driving:

    This article is retarded. "Green tongue" is complete nonsense, and anyone who would believe such has no real knowledge about cannabis.

    Mt. Dew slushies cause green tongue.....

    Green Tongue Points to Pot
    Chewing on marijuana could probably cause a green tongue, smoking it does not.

    Besides, who in their right mind would chew on marijuana or eat it raw, other than trying to avoid the law?

    The funny thing is, raw cannabis contains THC/CBD-acid which in no way causes the euphoric response many people use cannabis for. When i see people on here claim that we have prescription medications (which are in fact THC-acid or a synthetic version) and therefore the need to smoke/eat/vape is wrong, it is a sure sign they really have no idea wha they are talking about.

    CBD-acid is effective in relieving symptoms of ulcerative colitis, crohns, or IBD. As a means of alleviating nausea from chemo, advanced HIV, etc..., it is not effective (nor is THC-acid).

    Digsbe, this is something people in your field should be aware of before they make judgment calls.

    Re: Pot and driving:

    Cannabis use is associated with disturbances in concentration and memory. New research by neuroscientists at the University of Bristol, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, has found that brain activity becomes uncoordinated and inaccurate during these altered states of mind, leading to neurophysiological and behavioral impairments reminiscent of those seen in schizophrenia.

    In my own observation, smoking marijuana can enhance a cancer patient's appetite and can make chemo more bearable. But I do realize that "medical marijuana" is a gateway and also a racket.

    I missed this the first time. I'll just add my two cents. I care less if people smoke. Until we can answer the questions listed in this article I will be for it remaining illegal. If we can develop a failsafe way of determining impairment, I'll change my position.

    Re: Pot and driving:

    Funny how they focus on how the guy had smoked pot, yet decided the "other drugs" needed no further elaboration. Since he was using medical marijuana I wonder if any of those other drugs happened to be common prescriptions. Someone who smoked pot right before getting in a vehicle is still considerably less likely to crash than someone who is well under the legal alcohol limit or using certain prescription medication. The same goes for most other illicit substances. Of course, since the pharmaceutical industry dominates the medical research field a study they fund may very well conclude otherwise. The same goes for any government study. However, it will just be the same old "correlation equals causation" arguments our fraudulent scientific establishment has used to shut down any positions they disagree with.

    No need for a legal limit exists when it comes to most illicit substances. However, the notion that it does seriously impair someone's driving ability is used as one of many scare tactics to perpetuate the drug war. Another one is to focus on health effects, especially by making the link that marijuana when smoked has the same effects as tobacco (an ironic argument given the latter is legal). They focus on things produced when smoking it that cause cancer in tobacco smokers while excluding the proven cancer-fighting effect of THC. Studies actually looking at the health of users shoot down all the scary theories about its use.

    Alcohol is the king of deadly substances yet is readily promoted with sports arenas even named after major brands. Yet apparently we are supposed to fear marijuana being legal.

    I would be happy to elaborate on the effects of driving while on acid if that helps.

    Anyone who has ever gotten high knows you are full of crap. A scare tactic? Please.

    There are valid measurements for ones influence with alcohol.
