Secondly, while its regrettable that people lose thier lives the marijuana is no more responsable for it than guns are in gun deaths or even cell phones are in vehicular deaths. The object that is causing the distraction in a car is not at fault; at fault is the PERSON and their JUDGEMENT to drive while impaired. This happens with Marijuana, it also happens with Alcohol, it happens with sleep deprivation, it happens with perscription and nonperscription medication, it happens with cell phones, it happens with gps, it happens with food and make up. Etc.
Should we also be going "BUT THINK OF THE DEAD PEOPLE!" in an effort to ban all those things?
I dare say there are far, far more people on a daily basis that drive on far from enough sleep or who are texting or who are chatting on a cell phone or who are trying to eat their double cheese burger with one hand while getting their ketchup packets ready then there are people who drive while high.
