I am for legalizing marijuana, but I have a few questions: what does driving impaired on marijuana really mean? If someone smokes (or swallows in pill form) it every night to get to sleep he/she will have it in his/her system when he/she drives the next day. In fact, marijuana stays in a person's body for a long time, almost two weeks after the last usage. If a cop does a UA on such a person, will that person be arrested and/or get their license suspended if marijuana is found in their system? I don't think people should smoke while they drive, but how is anyone going to determine whether someone is smoking while driving unless they actually see the person smoke it in their car. I don't think it's fair to arrest someone or suspend their license if they simply have the marijuana in their system from smoking it during a time when they're not driving especially if they use it medicinally. These are issues that need to be ironed out. In addition, can people travel with marijuana in their car? If marijuana is considered a medication for some people, why can't they travel with it like it was any other medication? Again, no smoking in the car, but someone shouldn't get into trouble for simply traveling with it if marijuana is legalized or they use it medicinally. More issues to solve. Good luck!!

Why do you think that they won't legalize it? No joke, real question. I think that all the research shows that it is not as harmful as alcohol. And all the down side of drug trafficking. The Feds still have it as a schedule I. Why? What do they get out of it? What is the logic? Do you have any answers?
In the 1960, I was hoping that cannabis would be legal in the 1970. In the 1970, I was hoping that it would be legal in the 1980. In the 1980, I was hoping that it would be legal in the 1990. In the 1990, I was hoping that it would be legal in the 2000. In the 2000, I was hoping that it would be legal in the 2010.
And it is! In Colorado and Washington!
There are progresses. I am hoping that it will be legal in 2020 :)

Since Anslinger to Obama, the scientific results are known, and ignored. By the media and the politics.

I think that it is hard to legalize cannabis because the lies and dishonesty in that matter have been too much enormous. There is a threshold of scandalousness beyond which the scandal cannot go through.

Many studies show that the impact of cannabis smoking is beneficial on driving, and a refinement study showed that indeed cannabis makes the young smoker and driver paranoid up to the point of not driving his/her car (thus: less accidents), and old smokers and drivers get better driving test and seems to make less accident.
The idea that there is an issue here is basically an extrapolation from alcohol, which is indeed very dangerous for driving. Like cannabis, alcohol, slow down reflexes, but unlike cannabis, it makes the subject feeling the contrary. And so the simple offer of the choice between cannabis and alcohol would save a lot of people on the roads, and constituted a big harm reduction, very plausibly.

The false clames that pot was a danger started as a political scam and remains so now. As with Nixon,fallow the money. Billions in untaxed profit to drug gangs, billions In profit to the prison industry. Police get an easy target in millions of recreational and medical users, no need to endanger themselves confronting real criminals who might fight back.
No recorded deaths from overdose- compair that to tobacco, alcohol or even fast food. Medical Benifits, from replacing opiate pain meds to cancer, alhsimers and seizure treatments abound and the research is just starting. It improves arthritis in dogs, horses and people around the world. The pharmaceutical industry fears it. The gangs fear legalization, supporting tougher laws that mean more profit. Laws that have failed more spectacurely than prohabition, creating empires Al Capone could never imagine.
Draining resources away from real crime fighting, destroying Mexico and incarcerating millions of peaceful smokers.

Lol

It is good for the business. And it is better than the alcohol drinkers who often will be aggressive with his/her partners at home, when she/he is lucky enough to get back at it in one piece.

I know of a conversation that was had in a drug/alcohol treatment class about the legalization of pot. In the end , the most interesting part was a student's observation. He said " Can you imagine the commercials for pot that would be made if it was legal?" When I heard that some pretty amazing images went through my mind. Maybe a bunch of monkeys toking up,a business loosening his tie as he packs his bubbler, a housewife smoking a blunt while she cooks dinner. WOW Got any ideas?

Yes, let's legalize it. After all, it is no more dangerous than cigarettes and cigars. If you really think that, I challenge you to a trial. I'll get in my car and you in yours, we'll both chain-smoke as we drive the Freeways fom LAX to Fraser Park. See which one makes it??? Har-Har!
