    DO you have any facts the support it and make the study meaningful in the way it was presented?

With everything else I did there were significant consequences which made quitting a very good decision. Other than driving stoned or trying to do anything important stoned, what could possibly be bad about it? Its far tamer than alcohol in every way and there is very little scientific evidence it presents much risk at all. The "brain damage" claims are unsupported hysteria.

    None are so blind, as those who will not see.

    So not a lot of actual information here, just paranoia and hysteria.
    Ya know--surprisingly enough--that information is left out of drunk driving stats, too.

    The problem is that like drunk drivers, those who drive while impaired by other drugs tend not to just kill themselves; but others who have the misfortune to be in their path.

    In fact, one thing about drunk drivers is probably also true about marijuana-impaired drivers, is that due to a more relaxed state, they are more likely to survive the collision that they caused, than others who are victims of that same collision.

    If they only ended up killing themselves, then I could accept it as improving the human gene pool through natural selection.

    I agree, this is why i want any facts that support the failed OP/study

    and I also want the logical questions that were asked answered, since they debunk the presentation of the study and prove it worthless.

    The study doesnt prove anything except more people had weed in thier system

    anything else is a PURE GUESS lol

    Colorado Law Enforcement Drug Recognition Experts (DREs)

    • Drug Recognition Experts (DREs) are law enforcement officers who are highly trained to recognize
    impairment in drivers under the influence of drugs, and to identify which category of drug is causing
    the impairment.
    • The number of certified DREs has risen from 86 in 2005 to 173 as of July 1, 2011. There are expected to
    be over 190 DREs statewide by the end of 2011.
    • From 2005 to 2010, the number of evaluations conducted by DREs each year has nearly doubled, from
    465 (2005) to 910 (2010).
    o 2005 – 465
    o 2006 – 511
    o 2007 – 668
    o 2008 – 729
    o 2009 – 810
    o 2010 -- 910
    • On average, between 2005 and 2010, roughly 58% of all DRE evaluations came up with a result of
    marijuana as a drug involved.
    • From 2009 (391) to 2010 (599), there was a 35% increase in the number of DRE evaluation that came
    up with a result of marijuana as a drug involved.
    o 2005 – 300
    o 2006 – 304
    o 2007 – 335
    o 2008—429
    o 2009 – 391
    o 2010 - 599

    Yeah, unfortunately, druggies could care less about others just like alcholics. Even Serious drug dealers know better than to use.
