And what a round of laughter that created!!! Initially:

Las Vegas: Nope! We don't want no dispensaries in the city of Las Vegas!
North Las Vegas: Ditto!
Henderson: Never-ever-ever!
Boulder City: No dispensaries here until Lake Mead dries up totally!

Look underneath the glitter/neon of the Las Vegas Valley, and what you see?

Let's not forget who essentially steers this ship called Nevada, its legislators, the clark county commission: the casino moguls!

They say: Legalize it! It'll be legalized tomorrow, with or without the signatures!

The mysterious billionaire behind these recreational marijuana measures: George Soros, and I believe there's one more!

The Nevada billionaire behind the failure of the Florida ballot to legalize medical marijuana: Adelson! Why! Why! Why! And if he's so opposed to it in FL, come a vote on legalized marijuana here..............................

Driving while high: a retired narc on Law Enforcement Against Prohibition said he was on the scene of about 2,000 crashes & none were ruled as being caused by cannabis. CO authorities counted fatal crashes from 1/13-3/13 vs 1/14-3/14 & reported fatal crashes were down under legal cannabis by 25.5%. They said this is near an all time low. Also there was a slight decline in serious crime in Denver.

The level of THC in a person is not a good measure of impairment. Zero tolerance for THC is as nuts as claiming 0.01% B.A.C. is proof of impairment. CO authorities decided they would call 5ng/ml impaired when the THC test makers say 20ng/ml *might* be impaired (further tests needed) & if under 20ng/ml it seems they feel can't be impaired because these cheap testers (about 75 cents each in bulk) only show if the user is up to 20ng/ml.

Also, it should be pointed out than cannabis is non-toxic & the high reaches a plateau beyond which more impairment isn't possible. But alcohol can shut down a section of a brain & even cause temporary blindness. Alcohol can lower inhibitions but with pot, being stoned doesn't make a person want to do something they wouldn't do while not stoned. If people use both around the same time, they only feel the need to drink half as much to get the desired feeling. Hope this helps ease your worries. Best wishes.

Double whammy!!

Of course, but since this thread is about Marijuana and I've noticed an increase in people driving while smoking Marijuana, I made a general point about driving while intoxicated.

Sure it can add to the greater possibility of a driver getting into an accident regardless of the level of intoxication, because Marijuana impairs your ability to drive. The person is sluggish stoned which mean reaction times will be impaired. No excuses!

Honestly, you are more likely to get hit by a drunk driver or a driver that is Facebooking, texting and blogging.
..........and now you can add the [HIGHER] no pun intended, possibility of getting hit by a driver who is stoned. No excuses really!

I don't think too many stoners will get high, then have the motivation to go out driving. Maybe order some pizza and empty the fridge, but that's about it. Are you friends with any stoners?

lol what's that guy talking about?

i've been smoking weed for the past 13 years, and i didn't even know you can do that... like this guy can literally stand on the sidewalk on boulder highway and start pointing at cars, and tell you that the person behind the wheel is stoned. this guy's spidey senses must be impeccable.

to say the least, i smell a ridiculous pile of BS also.

Cannabis is really 2,000 strains not all the same. Not all MJ is sedating, but users might drive slow.
