    **** no. It impairs judgment, reflexes, and reasoning abilities.

    Yeah yeah, there's going to be the guy that comes in and says "but I drive on pot all the time, is totally safe bro". People say they drive just fine when they're drunk, too.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Bingo. Same here. The guy who thinks he'd be a great driver while high on cocaine is, well... high on cocaine.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Well, except that you voted that it should be legal. Not your fault though. A few have made this mistake so I probably did not make my question as clear as I could have.

    A couple observations about this thread. I knew it would be lopsided, but it's not as lopsided as I expected (granted, 3 of those were mistakes). I was more surprised that there seemed to be some hostility to my OP and my follow up questions, especially since there were some legit yes votes and arguments in favor, which leads me to believe this is a fair topic for discussion.

    Just a second to get it up. Man, do I envy you young fellows!

    To answer your question, though. Driving high shouldn't be illegal, but man, I wish they would nab those driving 20mph under the speed limit.

    It shouldn't be legal under any circumstance. The overwhelming majority of people can't function under 1 joint much less 2 or 3. Even seasoned smokers can't really function past a 3 gram.

    Yes your response is classic.
    How do you know which test they administered and what it can tell?

    In the meantime, while you are digging up that information, let me post some information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that you are already aware of.



    National Highway Traffic Safety Administration - NHTSA
    Drugs and Human Performance FACT SHEETS - Cannabis / Marijuana
    ...
    Interpretation of Blood Concentrations: It is difficult to establish a relationship between a person's THC blood or plasma concentration and performance impairing effects. Concentrations of parent drug and metabolite are very dependent on pattern of use as well as dose. THC concentrations typically peak during the act of smoking, while peak 11-OH THC concentrations occur approximately 9-23 minutes after the start of smoking. Concentrations of both analytes decline rapidly and are often < 5 ng/mL at 3 hours.

    Drugs and Human Performance FACT SHEETS - Cannabis / Marijuana ( D 9 -Tetrahydrocannabinol, THC)


    "Difficult" does not indicate, "no way".

    I thought it said should be illegal. Funny how your mind lets you see what you want to see sometimes.
