I thought marijuana was the big problem causing all sorts of distorted perceptions that lead to accidents... According to what i see... All the accidents are caused by drunks and pill poppers

You do know weed is legal for medicinal purposes, don't you? Just maybe she burned a little to much weed and it was the prescription meds mentioned???? Oh wait, weed is good stuff and it has never caused any ill effects!

It doesn't say what her prescription was for. It's very possible that she's one of the pot smokers who just happen to have a prescription!

If they would have found marijuana instead of a prescription drug the headline would have red Marijuana causes multiple collisions on I-5... I assure you they would not let something like that go unnoticed...

Sarcasm received... Yes MMJ has negative effects. Just imagine this tho. If there was a commercial for MMJ on after a commercial for Cymbalta. First Cymbalta side effects in a soothing voice; Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:
Nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, stomach pain, decreased appetite, dry mouth increased urination, difficulty urinating, night sweats, dizziness, headache, tiredness, weakness, drowsiness, muscle pain or cramps, changes in sexual desire or ability, uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body... now for the "Serious side effects" : unusual bruising or bleeding, pain in the upper right part of the stomach, swelling of the abdomen, itching, yellowing of the skin or eyes, dark colored urine, loss of appetite, extreme tiredness or weakness, confusion, flu-like symptoms, fever, sweating, confusion, fast or irregular heartbeat, severe muscle stiffness, blurred vision, fever, blisters or peeling skin, rash, hives, difficulty breathing or swallowing, swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs, and finally hoarseness.
Now MMJ side affects being screamed by an angry middle aged balding male, Adverse Effects of Marijuana
Dry mouth, Nausea, Headache, Decreased coordination, Increased heart rate, Altered body temperature, Reduced muscle strength, increased food consumption, anxiety and panic, Paranoia, Confusion, Hallucinations, Sedation, Altered libido, Depersonalization, Derealization, Poor sense of time, Poor short term memory and Amotivational syndrome.
How they can realistically include some of the neuropsychiatric effects is beyond me especially hallucinations and confusion! I would like to point out that there is medical research done to prove the ability of MMJ in treating Nausea, Headaches (including migraines). Anxiety, Panic and Paranoia are a result from your minds processing your indulging in an illegal substance; Im sure in some cases it can go beyond that. I forgot where i was going with this but you can Infer from it what you will
