You take me too seriously. I must learn that all humor is not self-evident. But you do tend to follow the speed limit which is not the wri=ong strategy if you drive in the right lanes. Seriously, the slight paranoia makes you a more careful driver.
I don't drive while buzzed and I don't think anybody should. Why? Self-preservation.
But for the OP, there are different levels of stoned as there are different levels of alcohol inebriation. A little is OK, a lot is not. If you misjudge, you may be headed to prison.
Anyways you might be thinking how I know all these details...all I can say is I live in a small town and in small towns word spreads quickly when something major happens.

Pot definitely affects your judgement, and the speed which one can handle an event (ball bouncing into the street) or the level reaction (slamming on the brakes when an acorn falls in the street). Been there, many years ago.
Those behind you need to be able to react to anything YOU do. If there is no foreseeable cause for your reaction, it's not going to end well.
Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

There is no reason for pot to be illegal, but that doesn't mean it doesn't impair certain functions while a person is on it.
So do a lot of prescription medications, as well as alcohol, and it should be illegal for a person to drive while on any of them. I'd include pot in that, no question.
