Read this link Washington Post

And the conclusion by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as detailed in the study:



The key point worth emphasizing is that the blood test is meaningless as it does not indicate to what degree if any the driver was impaired. It is absolutely certain that someone actively stoned is not a safe driver but some other mechanism of determining impairment needs to be used.
It's probabley more of an offence to have it on your person than ingested .

I did that once. Then the pot wore off and I went.

Sober people see it. Stoners don't see it.
You are stuck in a time past. I'm so sorry.

On a leisurely golf cart drive any afternoon or evening, has anyone ever noticed how many skunks we have here in the Villages? Skunkweed...pot that smells like skunk odor. And I have no idea how or why.

No, I'm sorry for my old hippie friends and relatives whose brains are fried and are useless and can't work and draw SSI and Disability Medicare in their 40s and 50s.

It would be nice if they were able to be productive and pay INTO the system for another 20 years, as it has a seriously shrinking number of payers per recipients.

Gracie, most of the Wrinklies who smoked grass probably did so 30++ years ago. Not saying all.
Most of them probably aren't getting "fuzzied up" any more.

This has to be written in jest. You aren't seriously implying that everyone that smokes pot is a drain on society? This type of fallacious reasoning is why we pass ridiculous laws on all sorts of private behavior.

Finally, someone with the facts and the intelligence to see how the impending implosion of the social security and Medicare system can be blamed on her own family and friends and some brain fried hippies. I did not know that until now. I did a google search using brain fried hippie social security and got 10,800,000 hits.

"My" friends and relatives refers to specific individuals who have fried their brains, not the whole society.

Overlooking that specificity in my post indicates another reason why "ridiculous" laws are passed.

Sunny, with all due respect, isn't it possible that the brain-fried friends and relatives were ingesting stronger substances than marijuana?

Here's one of many How-To guides on how to milk the system.

"Addicted? American? Broke? This might help:"

"If you are actively or recently addicted, live in the U.S., and are low on funds, this may be of use. I see it as getting the most out of the “disease model”. Thanks to Ram Meyyappan for offering to post this to our community.

Drug Addiction and Social Security Disability Benefits

Drug addiction can wreak havoc on an individual’s life and can often prevent an individual from working. What many people do not understand is that drug addiction is actually considered to be a disability by the Social Security Administration (SSA). If you are struggling with drug addiction or drug addiction recovery, you may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.

Qualifying for Social Security Disability Benefits with a Drug Addiction

It is important to note that even though the side effects of drug abuse can prevent an individual from performing gainful work activity, addiction alone is not enough to qualify a person for Social Security Disability benefits. If, however, the addiction results in other medical conditions, you can qualify for disability benefits due to the resulting conditions……"

They were smoking pot like chimneys in our teens and were called "burnouts" in college. Pot was and still is their drug of choice.

It was sadly predictable.
