They aren't going to admit it so they can be arrested for using/carrying illegal drugs! If the arresting officer suspects something the individual will just say he had a few to drink.
There are no tests for marijuana so that's why its not reported!
And next time you give your daughter, sister or wife a ride in your car, make sure you smoke a few bowls before you do, your such an outstanding responsible safe citizen!
There are tests for marijuana. Blood tests can detect if a person has smoked within the past 3 hours, while urine tests can detect if the person has smoked within the last month. And you're right, drinking and driving is not a good thing, and is illegal for a good reason, just as driving while under the influence of marijuana is illegal now, and would still be illegal if a new law legalizing it for recreational use passed.

I posed a similar question on the Ohio forum about full blown legalization of marijuana, and following in the foot steps of Colorado and Washington. It doesn't seem that my fellow Ohioans don't want to discuss it. I say legalize it EVERYWHERE, and end the damn war on weed! History has shown that prohibition does not work! Prohibition of pot was based on nothing but lies and propaganda anyway!

Maybe you should contact that officer at Law Enforcement Against Prohibition who said he was on the scene of about 2,000 crashes & says none of them were ruled to have been caused by cannabis.

Why aren't you complaining about all the crashes caused by alcohol? MJ is less intoxicating, according to a panel of addiction experts.

Go to Wikipedia & type in marijuana and driving study, they should have the correct info as sources must be cited. I'll admit right now I don't even know what they will show as multiple studies exist. Best wishes.

In order for the population to reap any truly medical benefits (and there are some) from Marijuana THC or what ever the distribution of the product needs to go through a Medical Doctors prescription for a patient, filled at a local licensed pharmacist, not some hippy grease-ball running a store on main-street.

I don't like it that those dispensaries charge as much as the street dealers. Of course if police take their inventory or even the building, they have an excuse to raise prices. And they must collect tax.

Yes, some medical benefits, like over 120 conditions where it sometimes works better than anything prescription rx.marijuana dot com/ 1,000+ medical studies alphabetical by condition helped in Granny Storm Crow's list. As of 2009 it shows 57 studies saying it fights cancer + several dozen other conditions.

Why should our govt-corp alliance be having a war on harmless Americans, a war on life?

Pot and booze are not the same.
Smoking is bad for your health, period, be it tobacco or merry-Juan.
Whatever chemical component (the THC or whatever) is medically beneficial (proven by AMA/CDC) then THAT chemical should be legally sold via lawful prescription from a licensed doctor only to those with documented medical conditions requiring the use of the THC.
Freaks with greasy long hair and bonz in their noses "prescribing" "medical pot" is the very thinnest cover for a cheesy head-shop dealer-type possible. Broadly "legalizing" has shown itself to be little more than back-door legalization of MJ period, nothing medical about it.
Growers I know, ex-growers now, did NOT want legalization because if legalized virtually anyone could grow (and it IS a weed, grows easily) supply would increase and the prices would plummet. All the hardware stores plumbing supply shops and car dealerships also complained about "legalizing" because selling (in cash) to the growers is HUGE business for them and they like the status quo just the way it is... Keeping pot illegal means very high prices and 100% tax-free profits.
The idea that legalizing dope will generate large tax revenues is silly. Once everyone gets to grow, supply will go up, price will go down and POOF! The stoner-dreams of money are gone....Large corporations (are you surprised?) will take over because they can do a better job of growing good stuff in volumes large enough so that they can still profit due to economies of scale. The stupid goofy high-school kids that dream about this “legalizing” crap all stoned and listening to reggae are going to get laughed off the stage as the savage cold business types squash them like bugs and take over the market as they always do…..
