     Colorado’s Fatal Crashes Involving THC Increased 148%.

    Between 2006 and 2011, 240 people were killed in Colorado in crashes where the driver tested positive for THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. The number of fatalities with drivers under the influence of marijuana has increased over the years, while state-wide fatal crashes have decreased.

    In Colorado during the five-year period, 2006 to 2011, fatal crashes involving THC increased 148%.

    FACTS from the stats above
    More people had weed in thier system in recent years than previous years. Thats it no other facts are there lol

    it being in thier system doesnt mean anything lol

    important questions:
    how many were high at the time of the accident?
    how many caused the accident?
    of the number that caused the accident was it because they were impaired?

    facts win again!

    let me know when you can prove otherwise

    Give me a break ---you read the report --- all 371 pages? And, just when did you do this? In the past 15 minutes? I don't want to accuse anybody of false statements ... so, we'll just assume you read the bullets on the main page only. Man, your credibility is clearly shot in the ass.

    As for the nonsense about the OP, that's simply dissembling and backpedaling ... you came in here making all kinds of grandiose statements about how pot didn't cause any deaths, and now you're trying to run and hide from your position by suddenly claiming you were ONLY talking about the OP.

    Given your new found lack of credibility, I can see why you would do that ...

    Agent J resorts to making things up when he does not like the results. They are plain below, can't be argued. Fatilities down, marijuana fatalities up.....end of story.

    there is nothing here that says:

    they were high at the time of the accident
    they cased the accident
    if they did cause the accident it was caused by them being high

    if you disagree simply prove us wrong and post those facts now

    fact win again !

    Researchers found that the increase in marijuana use occurred across all ages for males and females.

    WOW! so if you are high on weed and you are drunk at the same time you get REALLY f*cked up?
    What a revelation without this "study " we never would have known this...
    Thank you, thank you, thank you, for letting us know this, never before revealed, fact.

    You're welcome.
    Wrong about what. Tested positive does not mean high at the time.

    You're welcome.

    Indeed it is. It's not surprising, it's done to artificially inflate the numbers to give greater justification for government intervention.

    Again, doesn't prove that the person was high at the time of the crash. It could be used to construe that marijuana use in general is on the rise, which I would buy. But it doesn't mean that it was a factor in the crash.
