  •  FIELD SOBRIETY TEST (5+ / 0-)

    I am not exactly certain why people forget about this, but it's the standard sobriety test.

    Stoned people can usually pass it and the LAW is: if you can pass it, you can pass it.

    It would be wrong but typical for people, filed with hate and propaganda, to think we need to find other ways, but that is simply stupid.

    A case in Canada was thrown out on just that issue. NOTHING the driver did told the judge the person was impaired.

    The hysteria about stoned driving is just that - hysteria by those who truly don't know what they are talking about.

    Sort of like being rightwingers supporting Mittens.

        impaired drivers?

        BULLSHIT.   Let's see some cites, cuz that sounds like pure crap.   Some of 'em can barely stand up straight.

          Want me to tackle a project? Get me toasted first and I not only do it with a smile but I am more energetic. So go ahead an repeat unsubstantiated through studies or anecdotal discussion right wing memes created to marginalize Blacks.

          you just chill out?

          As far as the comment I think you meant to reply to, if you can pass the sobriety test you pass it.

          That is all it means. Nobody is going to "OK" driving under the influence.

          One of the biggest positives of weed is that it doesn't impair my reflexes or judgment. If it was anything like alcohol I wouldn't enjoy it. My reflexes remain sharp, my manual dexterity unaffected, my attention to detail slightly improved. I can play guitar, do martial arts, catch falling ice cubes and dollar bills, grab stacks of quarters off my elbow.

          And usually, when people are having a cow over 'stoned driving' they are simply assuming alcohol and weed are the same thing.

          And they aren't.

          And some people are just stupid - don't blame POT for them being dumbasses. There's no protection from stupid.

          It's also ridiculous this bit about 'can barely stand up'. Unsure I have ever smoked that much pot, and I have given it the college try.

          Do you know ANYTHING about this topic?
