WN: Pot smokers celebrate in streets as Wash. State legalizes marijua

91 posts in this topic

The Denny's in my town is the local hangout for skin heads, pot smokers, gang bangers and some other pretty rough folks like bikers and such. I thought it was just a local thing. Is this true of other Denny's as well?

It was on the early news on t.v. about this.

People were parting.

An ounce they can have on them ? huh...where is the rest stashed ? :P

America has gone to pots anyway . With all the law changes, etc.

But, at least I still have my freedom of... choice.

But don't you know, you are being "intolerant" if you don't agree with them and their choices!

And yes, dennys here in wa is the local pot head hangout too.

Those who defend the legalizatin of pot argue that it is really no different than the risks that alcohol poses. They have sought to draw all kinds of parallels under the premise that one cannot approve of legalization of alcohol, but be against the legalization MJ without being hypocrictical and internally inconsisitent.

But let's assume for a moment that argument holds true. You can't drive any better under the influence of pot anymore than under the influence of alcohol. So how much do the odds of being killed by someone driving with impaired judgment increase against us?? I mean it will soon be twice as much of a threat now that we are evidently on a path to legalization of MJ. And as if it isn't already bad enough that we have minors who know how to get access to booze, how much worse will it get now that they will be able to get their hands on both?

Just as long as they don't blow their smoke in my face.

I know what you mean...

This is assuming people were not driving while high already. It being legal doesnt change much at all. The major thing that changes are arrests, and people getting prison time for weed. The other aspects are not proven. I can tell you from first hand experience that alcohol and weed are two different things when it comes to being under the influence.

In what way does MJ impair your driving ability, reaction time, etc. compared to alcohol?

Well, let me say that I have never driven drunk. Was too scared, because I knew my vision was totally different,and my functions were not great. When I used to smoke I would drive. My reactions and driving ability were not hindered the slightest. That is my experience though.
