Most would say they would do something if someone was going to drive drunk... but would you if they were high?

Where I live it's as if that's acceptable and I am crazy for not being okay with someone high driving on our town's streets. That's why a DUI is not just for alcohol content.

  • I would do something if a person was high or drunk or on anything that would keep them from driving aware of there surrounding, to many lives...even just one can be at risk by this and I wouldn't be able to live with myself knowing I could have prevented it!

  • Oh I would do something too....but also there are some people out there that if you didnt see them "getting high" then you would have no idea that they were high. its so hard to tell these days.

  • We'll, your right. If it's okay to drive drunk or being high then I really question the idiots that live among you. I'd move!
    According to the letter of the law, driving under "any" influence or substance is illegal and morally wrong. In your case,
    I'd press the issue with anyone and let them try and validate that it was okay to drive high right after they ran over your friend.

  • They are both wrong but a person who is high is more aware than a person who is drunk.

  • Neither is better than the other. Being drunk or high is impaired. Period.

  • While they are both wrong and both illegal, I know people that are actually more functionable after a few hits lol. Honestly though. But if someone were obviously high off their ass especially off more than just weed of course I'd try to stop them.

  • If I knew they were high I'd take the keys. One is as bad as the other!
