    But it's the truth. Marijuana causes a positive urine drug screen for far longer than alcohol or other drugs. Having a positive canibus level doesn't necessarily mean that the driver was high while driving.

    No, it's actually exactly that.

    Yeah keep laughing, those of us that have worked in industry and seen needless lives lost because some dumbass smoked a joint and hour before work will keep reading the obituaries while saying "what a dumbass" to ourselves because the person in question thought pot was harmless.

    Exactly, marijuana can stay detectable in the system for weeks after the last smoke. So saying X% of fatalities tested positive for marijuana doesn't actually tell you how many people were high AT THE TIME.

    Right? This seems pretty clear. The only thing you can say is that studies show that marinara could be a factor in fatal accidents in 0 - X% of the measured cases.

    The ONLY difference is that alcohol does not stay in your system pay 48 hours... even if the effects wore off after 5-10 hours ( depending on how much was ingested).

    But hey, your the one giddy over people dying...

    no but the percent of concentration will provide a timeline as we get better testing for this stuff. We already know that pot smoker have decreased brain cells so many of these guys are already half wits.

    Yes, and you can say that if you want. Pretty sick, but whatever.

    What you can't say is the number of fatalities directly related to marijuana intoxication because you do not have those numbers.

    Natural Selection has always worked well when people allow it to.

    So not a lot of actual information here, just paranoia and hysteria.
    You'll not these studies never include levels of thc, just presence.

    Then there's the recent discovery that impairment fades with regular use. Regular smokers perform better under high dosages than inexperienced ones do with much lower dosages. Doesnt mean you should drive high, just that familiarity reduces impairment.

    Intentional misinformation. No more useful than eye color.

    I have several that I have seen the results of. Like I stated earlier, someone needs to keep the worms from starving, might as well be the weed heads.
