Why, at a time when we are seeking to reduce or eliminate alcohol-related auto fatalities, are we legalizing marijuana use?
Moreover, the article points out that “police do not have a test as accurate as the Breathalyzer to check a driver’s marijuana intoxication level.” Why are we legalizing a substance as mind-altering as alcohol, but for which we don’t have effective means of testing drivers?
Why don’t people think of these things before they pass such laws?
“Twenty states and the District of Columbia now have laws legalizing marijuana in some form. So far, only Colorado and Washington state have legalized marijuana for recreational use, while other states permit medical marijuana.” (Source: State Marijuana Laws Map)
