Does this change the way you feel about the safety of smoking pot?

Article here that tells of a Mom admitting she had smoked pot when she caused an accident --while her two small kids were in the car.
Anyone know how to make it a "clicky" link?Thank you.

  • It has never been safe or good. If you have kids you give up your life. That means no more partying, no more drugs, no more any of that. Any money or time spent on those things is taken from your family. It is wrong, and illegal.

  • Not really, I didn't think it was to smart to drive high anyway.

  • Of course you shouldn't be driving while you are under the influence of ANY drug.

  • A 17 year old with pot in his system t-boned my father and killed him on Thanksgiving. It doesn't help that he was texting. But either way, driving under the influence of anything, whether alcohol, pot, ambien, or an innocuous cold medicine is just stupid. I don't smoke pot but I don't begrudge those who do. As long as it is done responsibly.

  • Thank you for posting this, and I'm sure you know to be prepared for the bashers. It doesn't change how I feel because I don't think it's a safe, harmless drug. I was a pot smoker for 17 years, and I know it is addictive. I know the lasting effects it has on your cognition even after you stop smoking it.

    With alcohol, it is possible to test drivers to see if they are currently under the influence. This is not possible with marijuana, since it shows up in a UA for such a long time. People can come up with other explanations for the glassy eyes, red eyelids, and poor cognition.

  • With any and all drugs no one should be driving while using them.

  • I have to agree, I've never actually considered it "safe" to start with.
