    Whew you guys!

    Study does not address any increase in traffic fatalities, just demonstrates a change in habits.

    Adds up to don't leave any open containers in your car.

    Well if eating too many cheese cakes is retarded then yeah.

    Got to understand the effects of what you are ingesting.

    this is untrue, the levels of metabolites change within the hours of smoking. will be completely different : parole officers use the same type test to see their clients are limiting the amount of weed they smoke as levels go down..

    I just don't drive, while stoned, or after having a few drinks..it's not worth the risk

    I don't know about other people, and I don't condone it, but I've been driving stoned for 40 years and I've never had the slightest problem.

    How crowded are the roads over there? We have busy traffic and strong weed. It's just an accident waiting to happen over here.

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    It varies depending on where you are driving. It's a big country, so obviously the rural areas will have much less traffic.

    Make sure you drive the speed limit. Cops looking for stoned drivers like pulling people over going five or so under

    Yeah, I can imagine if you're in the countryside or some rural forest you can say righteously I don't see the problem. I'm coming from a different traffic situation I guess.

    That's okay... I'm usually 5mph above. :auto:



    Actually... I'm not, but that does seem to be the speed of traffic, about 5mph over posted. I've always been a strict speed limit guy in town and around schools. etc. Open road, I would love to fly but it's not allowed. (there has been an occasional bending of the rules when I was a kid... :p )

    Sounds more like the OP is tossing some chum into the waters to see who bites.
    Obvious "troll" thread.

    The reality of it is, regardless of opinion or personal experience, every study done on this very topic have all come to the same conclusions;
    overall, drivers under the influence of marijuana are generally safer and take less risks when driving than persons under the influence of alcohol, and even safer than completely sober drivers.

    so stick that in your bong and smoke it!



    and you can get a "driving while impared" for being under legally prescribed meds as well. ;)

    I never had a problem when I used to smoke either. In fact, when I was younger...it seemed like the cops would pull me over and search my car when I was totally sober and not carrying. When I was fried and had something in the car, they never searched me. No idea why. Just luck I guess.

    And yeah....I used to get pulled over a lot....young male...sporty car with GD stickers in the window....small town cops with a lot of free time....you guys can imagine.

  17. I haven't driven after smoking in quite a while and when I did... I drove fine. Except that. Really damn hard for me anyways to not be going slightly under the speed limit.

    From your source,
    the researchers said, "the prevalence of nonalcohol drugs reported in this study should be interpreted as an indicator of drug use, not necessarily a measurement of drug impairment."
