It'd be no problem if these halfwits were the only victims of their self entitlement and law breaking practices. Unfortunately it isn't. When you have a fatal accident there's usually a victim who had nothing to do with the author of the accidents proclivity to break the law.

So we should make the same laws for alcohol that we do for pot right?

Basically. The study mentioned that the effect was similar to the spike in traffic fatalities on Superbowl Sunday.

Just me, but I don't care if people shoot up heroin, drink, or smoke pot so long as they are not enabled in their chosen lifestyle by social programs.

I'm okay with helping people escape from addiction but I don't want to pay for their addiction.

And if they abuse their driving privileges then they have to face justice just like anyone else does.

Of course, to be expected. Have stiff DUI laws, but banning either substance is nonsense.

It just doesn't work. The problem they have with THC is that it's oleophilic and hangs about in the system for days, even weeks, so that the various tests they have now will not correlate THC (or metabolite) concentration with impairment. Really they should test impairment.

Data that definitively link these fatal crashes to cannabis intoxication does not exist, because testing regimes vary dramatically between states.

And it give NO actual numbers. If that number increased to ONE from zero in Vancouver that's an infinite increase and skews things to being absolutely meaningless.
Which is about how desperate the rump remnants of the anti-legalization crowd are willing to go these days.
