Ah yes, driving while stoned. I hate it too. Especially at stop signs. They sometimes sit there and wait for the dang sign to turn green!

I'm certain he'd have never dared to do that when it was illegal!

You do realize that driving under the influence or while impaired is always illegal, no matter what is causing the impairment, right?

But I just know more impaired people will be driving, which isn’t good. We have enough problems on the road as it is.

There are people with health problems and or have chronic pain which this helps them. I would not call them pathetic. Whatever adults do that do not harm others is ok by me. I don't judge.

You know, I really do not know. If I ever get that super stoned, I'm at home; certainly not driving.

Last Saturday night I was sitting on my bedroom sofa thinking that we all as humans don't live in the same world, we all live in our own worlds which are definined by our own perceptions of reality. I then realized I had too much

In my youth, I think I MIGHT have seen a stop sign turn green, but, yeah, not that you want to drive ANYWHERE buzzed, but doing it in this state is just downright stupid...

At least you were safely melted into your sofa when that happened!

How Arizona Won the Weed Legalization Race

Four states voted to legalize recreational cannabis in November. Only one is selling it so far.


https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/29/s...gtype=Homepage

“The Republicans here all saw the amount of money coming in from other states, what they were making with their sales taxes and how much money cannabis is making,” Ms. Matarese said. “They really had no choice but to accept it, especially when the economy is on a downturn.”

“I would not have expected five years ago, not even three years ago, to be able to walk into a police station as a cannabis company,” Mr. Al-Hasan said. “They were shaking our hands, they wanted to take pictures with us.”

Cannabis is a popular alternative treatment to opiates or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for pain management. “There are a lot of officers there that have moms and dads that are in a lot of pain,” Mr. Rimbach said. “And they’ve found that the only way besides opiates is cannabis. It opens their minds a lot.”

After you walk in, you give the receptionist your ID and have a seat and wait for the budtender to call your name and escort you to the room. Once in the room you tell the budtender what you're looking for (in my case just something to take the edge off before bed once in awhile, not to get wasted or to increase focus). The experience went well and I'm glad we have this freedom finally. With the amount of money I'm seeing spent, this will also be a big tax boost for the state. A definite win/win IMO.
This is useful and timely information which I just found out a few days ago.
