    Should driving during or right after smoking pot be legal?

    Since it appears from many arguments I've seen that pot actually has no ill or dangerous effects either to the user or any one around them and causes basically zero impairment of judgment or reflexes, shouldn't driving while high be legal? If not, why not?

    Choices will be yes, no, and I don't know.

    Need a second to get the poll up.

    Hell no. If pot makes me have to read the same page of a book twenty times over before I can follow the story then no way in hell should I be operating a vehicle on it.

    No no no. It should be regulated just as alcohol is regulated.

    Here's my problem (well, one of many, lol). Every time the subject is legalization of marijuana, the pro side almost invariably compares pot to alcohol and almost always concludes that pot is actually better and safer so shouldn't our traffic and criminal laws be changed to reflect that one is just not as bad as the other?

    You're ok with non-violent people spending time in jail for such a minor thing?

    Is pot "safer"? Depends what you mean. They both cause different affects. From my time smoking and drinking, when im high i cannot operate normally and i believe you should not be allowed to operate a motor vehicle after or during smoking. I have friends that do and can fine but still being under the influence while operating a motor vehicle is not safe and should not be allowed for the population.

    I think it should be handled just like a DUI.

    Non-violent or not, people who smoke pot are absolutely horrible judges of the benefits of pot. How many stories have you seen that are liked on Facebook or shared through email on the hundreds of dubious benefits of marijuana (the one about cannabis curing cancer probably being my favorite)?

    People should be allowed to smoke pot, but they shouldn't be allowed to drive a two ton vehicle on it.

    Ok, but as you can see with some of your friends, it can be done safely, right?

    No obviously, treat it like alcohol, it's not that complicated.

    Right Wingers crack me up..............

    People only compare pot to alcohol because they are both minor impairments to the brains function.

    They are not alike, but they are both impairments.

    But regulation doesn't work...........(R)ight?
