Weed Good, Soda Bad

  • State lawmakers heard an earful from both sides at a Monday hearing on legalizing recreational use of marijuana.

    Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle told lawmakers she supports legalization because, right now, law enforcement focuses a disproportionate amount of energy on pot smokers in black and brown communities.

    “Rarely do we see white college students, or young professionals, suburban high school students or their prosperous parents, arrested or detained for the use or possession of marijuana,” Preckwinkle said at a House-Senate public health hearing on legalizing marijuana in Illinois.
Everything is racial to Prickwrinkle, indeed to most democrats - it's their defining characteristic. That being said, this will be an interesting social experiment should recreational marijuana be legalized. The disruption to the cartel distribution networks, gang hierarchies and street-corner "territories" is going to be amusing. That's a big income stream suddenly cut off and a lot of inner city entrepreneurs without pocket money. They can't all become safe passage workers at $10-an-hour.

I have to jump in on this one. Yes it is racial because one arrest can fuck up your life. I have seen white men do coke in the office, their suppliers are arrested but not them. White high school and college students use to cruise the south and west sides for drugs and get escorts back to the expressway from the police. Get pissed if you want but it happened. But a young black or brown man can get arrested and his life is fucked. I have a uncle who had a minor weed case 30 years ago and he has to work at a damn food processing plant for 9 bucks a hour. The legal system is not fair when it comes to drugs and it is time we admit that. You can be white and get a felony DUI and fucking go home. Do not get it twisted, that is what Toni is talking about. If we both do dirt, we both pay the price. Period.

As much as I dislike the increased open air consumption of stink weed, has it ever occurred to Bullwinkle that the disparity in arrests occurs because minority youths peddling hash and openly consuming it in high crime neighborhoods which are being patrolled by police officers? Could there be a correlation? To Phony and Kimesha it is racism. To neutral observers, it is stupidity on the part of those arrested.

I will add that the grass available today is more potent than anything that was being smoked at Haight Asbury in the Summer of Love. It is not harmless fun.

Maybe I’m totally out of the loop, but I honestly haven’t locked anyone up for weed in at least 10 years, and can’t think of seeing a weed arrest in at least four or five years. Are people really still grabbing guys for weed like Toni Toni Tone alleges?

Where will the tax revenue go? Fix the budget? Fix the schools? Infrastructure? PENSIONS? These pols are pissers. They have demonstrated the ability to waste money and keep asking for more. Does anyone believe this will help? Homes with children and babies filled with dope smoke? Think about that? Maybe a health concern? Sugary drinks= evil. Smoking weed? These people have no soul.

Did any of you watch the NBC Forum of Democratic candidates for Governor on Tuesday night? Six people are running. The ones you see commercials from - JB Pritzker, Kennedy, and Biss, and then three others Tio Hardiman, some other Downstate guy, Bob Daiber, and a physician named Robert Marshall.

I did not catch the whole "debate", but the one thing that was different than all the typical Democratic "we need to raise taxes" rhetoric was said by the physician, Marshall. His idea is to split the state into 3 states - Chicago, the collar Counties, and downstate. Each one would have its own Governor and 2 US Senators.

In effect you would have Chicago - the State of Confusion (a sanctuary state of course), Downstate (whatever they would name it, and then the suburbs. When you think about that, that could be a good thing.

All the others touted how good they would be for Illinois and how they would "fix it". Yeah, it's already "fixed".

No one mentioned cutting spending and waste, just raising taxes to cover bloated pensions that cannot be sustained. Break the state into three - sounds like a good answer to me. Not voting for the same old crowd anymore.

“Rarely do we see white college students, or young professionals, suburban high school students or their prosperous parents, arrested or detained for the use or possession of marijuana,” Preckwinkle said.

Perhaps because very few of the aforementioned demographics have adopted cannabis consumption as part of their daily existence. Furthermore, I can't tell you the last time I've seen a white person smoke weed:

- in a movie theater
- in school
- walking down the street going nowhere in particular
- while driving in rush hour traffic on the expressway
- while walking into the police station to pick up their child
- while hanging on a corner doing nothing for hours on end
- in front of the courthouse while the judge takes a recess
- waiting in line for rides at Great America...

... all without a care in the world as if it were normal.

These motherfuckers start smoking blunts daily in their early teens (if not earlier) and never look back. And today's THC levels are off the fucking charts; Dude Inc's collective developing gray matter doesn't stand a chance. So it's no great mystery why these pooches can't read or write at a 4th grade level at 18 years old. The "dope" just exacerbates their ignorance and everything that accompanies or segues from same.

And fuck you and your Race Card, PrickTickle.

If it isn't "Food Deserts" or that damn sugary grape pop killing all the chilluns of color, it must be the undue stress created by 'The Man' hassling Toni's people of color for partaking in the occasional toke.

Right?

Perhaps because “black and brown” communities are open and notorious in their possession and consumption of cannnabis?

Having worked all over the city, it is only in “black and brown” communities where residents boldly walk around with weed blunts behind their ear, sitting in the park smoking it, and 3 out of 5 cars stopped for traffic on the south/west side on a weekend have a strong odor of cannabis emitting from them.

Perhaps it’s not that enforcement is unfair, it may just be the communities that AREN’T “black or brown” choose to use a bit more discretion in their consumption.

Discretion is key. However, certain segments of society feel the need to be catered to, and they can do as they please.

This argument has been used by other Dems in other states as they lobbied for legalization of pot. The argument is used to cover up the fact that all the politician really wants is the tax revenue they think will result from taxing and regulating pot. The reality in the states where pot is legal and is dispensed from stores that have a state license is that there is still a lot of "illegal" pot around, being grown or brought in from other places. When potheads know they can walk around smoking joints in public because it is legal, they will buy from the cheapest source. Law enforcement in those states now spends more than the tax revenue from legalization trying to shut down the flow of illegal pot.

More excuses for black and brown people. Let them buy and smoke weed where they want, when they want and leave them alone. Does she really think that this will help them in the long run? Also, funny when I drive through the suburbs I don’t see white people driving cars with expired or missing plates, tail lights and head lights out, music thumping at stop lights or smoke billowing out of their windows. Nor do I see a group of white guys hanging at the park selling dime bags to passing vehicles. And guess what the neighbors are not calling the police on the “gang members loitering on the corner, in the park or sitting in their vehicles.” But hey don’t change their behavior, change the rules. Kinda like social promotions in public school, if you show up to school you move on to the next grade no need to pass a test or learn the curriculum. Then they graduate and can barely read, but hey give them a job or you’re a racist. This system is so screwed.

Incorrect. Look at California. If you have even a misdemeanor you cannot sell legal or medicinal weed, you need 1 million to start up with massive security costs. Plus the price is triple the street price with the various taxes tacked on. Try again

College campuses are not the selling grounds of ten year olds to pick up their dime bags. Grammer schools are and that's where inner city sellers focus their trade. Directly under the noises of those safe passage goofs. Wake up, admit your political savvy runs in the complete opposite direction of common sense.

Utter Bullshit.

Arrest = suspected of violation of law, with confidence that said violation can, via evidence, be proven.

And this......THIS is what you claim can be the determining experience for someone's, anyone's, entire life to be "fucked up"?

Grab ahold of something solid, bucko.....and not your Johnson or your empty sack........nor your vacant noggin.....

Unless this mythical single arrest was for something significant....like.....say.....Fucking Bloody Murder......AND.....

....unless this mythical single arrest resulted in:

Charges filed AND approved for arraignment

No bond, followed by trial, conviction, sentencing, and plenty of it, your single arrest bullshit may float in your shallow pond.....but.....it ain't gonna fly in the sky....

Ya wanna quote that, to your mind, long list of life fucking effects you moan and groan and lament about.......quote away.

For every no longer possible accomplishment your mythical single arrest record victim may experience, there's literally THOUSANDS of not at all fucked up accomplishments, achievements and activities that remain not merely possible, but actually easily do able, IF your mythical victim of the mythical ruinous single arrest is not an ASSHOLE.

The problems, the actual, practical problems, with granting weed the same, or similar, legal status as, say, tobacco, or alcoholic beverages, are, to name a few:

1. Substance consumption alters perception, physical capability, emotional reactions to experience, and, thus, significantly alters choices of actions.

2. Substance consumption effects thus result in a huge variety of various improvements AND degradations in consumer's behaviors.

3. Bystanders are always at risk to being affected by either unwelcomed effects of substance or unwelcomed effects of the effects of substance upon the consumer of same.


4. The practical, real world, effects of altering the legal status of this particular substance are, much like the historical altering of alcoholic beverages' legal status, substantially predictable and very likely to result in increasing the work loads of those who strive to conceal the realties of living in this lovely, Big Titty of a City.......a thought that our political putz pukes are caught between that proverbial rock and a hard place is a delightful thought to think.....

Never felt it was worth the time to make an arrest just for weed. I cant wait till retirement! I see a doobie in my future!

There may be a certain wisdom to Toni's perspective, though it may be unintended.

The more excuses (ie, getting jailed for weed) get removed, the more obvious it becomes that the Community has problems it can't pin on The Man.

Like multi-generational dependence on government money from The Man. (How much money has LaQuan's family cost Illinois over the generations? )

Like complete disarray in commitment to family (ie, getting married and staying married,instead of multiple baby-daddies).

Like calling hard-working kids out for "acting white" for actually doing their homework?

Kimmm's brilliant experiment in letting criminals go free is already doing a lot to show how deep problems are in the Community, and how little they have to do with The Man. Toni's proposal to legalize weed will help do the same.

Let the experiments proceed -- the results may be surprising...

>>>>> “Rarely do we see white college students, or young professionals, suburban high school students or their prosperous parents, arrested or detained for the use or possession of marijuana,” Preckwinkle said.... <<<<<

Besides that statement being blatantly Racist, it's one the STOO-PID-IST things I've heard a politician say since... well, a couple days ago from her fellow democrat Chuck Schumer (Race-baiter, NY).

Did it ever cross Preckwinkle's teeny mind that white people and the groups she slandered don't stand around on street corners openly smoking dope. Nor do they hang on street corners at 1:00 am slinging dope. Or are they known to generally act suspicious in public, warranting a street stop by police, who then find pot in their pockets.

Of course not. If she did then she couldn't 'blame whitey' for everything like her co-hort race-baiters in the Perpetually Aggrieved Industry, aka the Race Pimps, always do. But guess what Toni, you've overplayed that hand and lost that war. Calling everyone and everything racist is now meaningless.

As I like to say now: I'm not called a racist very often, but when I am I know I just won an argument with a Leftist.

Lol. Another rediculous reach for tax dollars. FYI, legalization will do nothing to hamper the illegal weed trade. Does anyone honestly think that the people who crave this garbage, especially in the ghettos, are going to behave as good consumers and purchase weed at legal dispensaries at the inflated price? They will just continue the black market and undercut and undermine any cook county imposed tax. The cartels will not loose out because the weed they market is higher in THC anyway. This is as rediculous as the cook county soda tax.

Ok, first, ya dont see the same number of arrests for weed as it pertains to white people is because most ehite folks dont stand on the street corner with a pocket full of rocks and nickle bags of weed.

Most white folks arent rolling around in the car with 6 jars and a quarter pound, along with 4 stolen guns, 5 grand in their pocket and 7 link cards in their wallet.

Most white folks arent in smokers, stolen cars. Most white folks dont have three packs of swishers in plain view and shake you can see and smell from 30 feet away.

But mostly, white folks tend to be respectful when pulled over, take their tickets like adults without trying to lie their way out of it and they even give their first and last name, with id. The first time...because they PAID their last ticket, got the headlight fixed and even showed up to court so they dont end up with STUPID FTP WARRANTS!

You understand, white people tend to follow the rules, the petty rules, in order to avoid the STUPID trips to jail that dont have to be when ya dont play the race card for being pulled over when doing 49 in a school zone at 750 in the morning while on a purple drank run.

All that said, forget about the weed, we are WAY beyond that already, so just treat it a pack of smokes...something you yourself wouldnt choose to do but that others do choose for themselves. We have other REAL crimes to attend to now.

Wrote on this a few months ago. Over 1/2 of the US will legalize this crap. Canada, I believe, votes on it this year.
https://www.usatoday.com/videos/news/world/2017/12/10/canada-sell-legal-pot-liquor-stores/108462022/

Still, the argument I have heard, again, sadly (on C-SPAN) is "everyone knows a dealer.") If true, why pay inflated (+TAX) prices?

Kinda like the internet. People buy online to avoid taxes (for now.)

In a "discussion" on a local PBS station (big mistake), it was 3 for it: professors, moderator, doctor and one doctor against. He spoke of carcinogens, 2nd hand smoke and was almost laughed off the set.

Now: you cannot smoke in some housing units, apartments, public housing, so now will it be "take it outside?"

Personally, I don't want to breathe the crap.

Prickwinkle, like Jackson, et al, have a chip on their shoulder: hate being black. Most blacks don't complain daily, march, break laws, or "let people have an area to destroy" (Baltimore), but now it's just lower the bar/lower the standard a little more and one wonders why the confusion and being in a society with no moral compass!

More taxes? More, more, more. Hell, they are driving people away in the thousands!
Hello! What kind of world do these "people" live in?
There are 7 states with NO income taxes, little property tax and a few with NO sales tax! These may be looked up on a web search.

Question: Is it Cook or Crook County? The good, hard working, honest and working and paying for the crud, the "sanctuary city" stuff, and others. Families used to take care of their own.

Welfare was something to be ashamed of. Now, it's an "entitlement." Unreal!

Is PrickWanker even aware of the current opioid epidemic, synth-narcotics shipped into the country as well as tons of south of the border weed ? Why is she protecting the drug trade? Does she think legal weed is going to make illegal weed less profitable and less desired?
And did she forget again about the ANOV decriminalization ?
They practically legalized Theft with the I-Bond for those getting caught shoplifting to satisfy their addictions.

Next she’ll be advocating for a monthly stipend to pay for her constituents legal weed consumption, like SNAP/LINK.
Her companion, Comm. Frichey (D-12) is on board for all out legalization.
Politicians wanting to legalize dope are the ones who’ll see personal profits.

No shitbag is going to afford any store bought legal weed.
They’ll continue to resort to violent crime and robbery to pay for the buzz.
They’ll still continue to protect their street corner illegal criminal enterprises by shooting and killing one another.

But a young black or brown man can get arrested and his life is fucked. I have a uncle who had a minor weed case 30 years ago and he has to work at a damn food processing plant for 9 bucks a hour. The legal system is not fair when it comes to drugs and it is time we admit that. You can be white and get a felony DUI and fucking go home. Do not get it twisted, that is what Toni is talking about.

The reports coming out of Western states that have legalized weed for recreational use have been interesting. It has not stopped the illegal sales of marijuana, but has actually increased it . People are buying the stuff and sending it across state lines or selling weed to people who are not eligible ( under 18 years of age). The use among the teens has more then doubled and the legal weed has increased the homeless population and vehicle accidents in the states. But, the only thing the political class ( with the exception of the racist Preckwinkle) think about is money, money, money. The kids are already saying that the adults have been lying to them all of these years when they said weed was dangerous and now it will be legal. If the adults lied about weed, did they lie about the other drugs as well? It is a dangerous slope that the progressives go down on. Decriminalize it and force people into drug counseling, but don't legalize any more mood altering substances.

The difference as everyone knows is that mostly African Americans are blatantly smoking weed and drugs on street corners, and with their babies and young kids in presence. White, Brown, or Black----Drugs are bad, get a damn clue! For the most part, white people are just as pathetic drug users too, but they do it in their homes or private areas and not around babies ingesting the smoke and loser drug behavior that follows. That would explain why when offenders do things in public, it brings a bit more attention to them and people call 9-1-1 or cops driving around see it on -view. Common sense why the reason why some racial groups are arrested more than others. Nothing personal Preckwinkle. I didn't see her complain when she tried her soda tax for health reasons (but yet she supports legalizing drugs? .... thats great logic !) but of course her soda tax only affected hard working people actually paying with their own money for soda verse the LINK card people, many of which are African American, were excluded from paying soda tax. Great logic there too!!! See, in Chicago, its okay to be racist if you are African American, but God forbid if someone points facts and hypocrisy. This racial BS is so over played and doesn't Preckwinkle and other weasel politicians have any other material to use is RACE, RACE, RACE. Guess thats why middle America decided to vote Trump in. We can't say it in public, but people voted for Trump secretly because they would be ostracized if they said it , but guess what, they still voted for Trump, hence him winning. Maybe Mary Mitchell and annoying Preckwinkle can go out on a date together, and obsessively talk about how the white man is the worst thing to have ever be born. Because Chicago and Cook County government is working so well that thousands get shot here a year. Hows that race card working out!? Or are white people covertly running around shooting black on black crime disguised as African Americans? I thank the African American officers on CPD because at least they see thru the BS of politics.

Maybe because ghere’s no more police in the districts where white people live?
The districts have been stripped of manpower, and the black and brown districts drain all of the departments resources.

Black and brown districts get gang teams, saturation teams, VRI (when it was up), MSF/TRU, area mission teams, etc.

You can’t have it both ways. If you want more white people locked up, then SEND SOME MANPOWER TO THE PREDOMINANTLY WHITE DISTRICTS! Trust me, we would love to see the police cruising around our neighborhood!
How can you beg for all of the police resources, but complain when you get arrested for blatantly breaking the law?

And to the first comment? I’m calling BS on just about everything you said.
White cops give white kids police escorts to buy dope in black neighborhoods? What planet are you living on?
Your uncle had a “minor weed offense” 30 years ago and now can’t find anything but a menial job because of it? Maybe he still can’t kick the habit and passing a drug test is hard for him. There is absolutely NO WAY that would preclude him from a job. Hell, he could become CPD if he wasn’t too old.

The reports coming out of Western states that have legalized weed for recreational use have been interesting. It has not stopped the illegal sales of marijuana, but has actually increased it . People are buying the stuff and sending it across state lines or selling weed to people who are not eligible ( under 18 years of age). The use among the teens has more then doubled and the legal weed has increased the homeless population and vehicle accidents in the states. But, the only thing the political class ( with the exception of the racist Preckwinkle) think about is money, money, money. The kids are already saying that the adults have been lying to them all of these years when they said weed was dangerous and now it will be legal. If the adults lied about weed, did they lie about the other drugs as well? It is a dangerous slope that the progressives go down on. Decriminalize it and force people into drug counseling, but don't legalize any more mood altering substances.

Oh really? You have hard statistics that will support these allegations?

While I'm not going to pretend that adults buying weed for kids isn't happening...we have the same problem with Tobacco and Alcohol and Firearms. So not surprised at all.

Legal Weed increasing the Homeless Population? Bull shit...its the morons coming from out of state to buy it...they just don't have a house in Colorado.

Increasing Vehicle Accidents? Horse shit. Show me Hard Data that DUI Weed = Car Crash. Cause when I smoked weed in the 90's...I drove about 5 under the limit so as to NOT get noticed...you tend to be a bit paranoid on weed. Not Like the way that Booze can make you feel invincible.

I have to jump in on this one. Yes it is racial because one arrest can fuck up your life. I have seen white men do coke in the office, their suppliers are arrested but not them. White high school and college students use to cruise the south and west sides for drugs and get escorts back to the expressway from the police. Get pissed if you want but it happened. But a young black or brown man can get arrested and his life is fucked. I have a uncle who had a minor weed case 30 years ago and he has to work at a damn food processing plant for 9 bucks a hour. The legal system is not fair when it comes to drugs and it is time we admit that. You can be white and get a felony DUI and fucking go home. Do not get it twisted, that is what Toni is talking about. If we both do dirt, we both pay the price. Period.

Brodsky said the city’s contract with the Fraternal Order of Police requires the city to pay for Rialmo’s lawyers — though Brodsky said the city has refused to pay him — and indemnify police officers for legal judgments.

Ha! Where'd you go to college? The suburban kids were drinking and smoking the city kids under tables in college. Here I am from the southside of the city and thought I knew about weed. Ummm no. I have a family member who had a drug problem in the 80s...drugs! But he worked with mostly white guys and would not drink more than two beers when he went out with them because they got super drunk every time.

Now I don't buy, and have told several of "my people", the white kids don't ride around in cars full of weed smoke. But as far as actually using drugs don't fool yourself. In 022 all the "preps" aka Catholic school kids had one hitters and some were crushing and snorting over the counter pills and then those tripping off acid...Beverly Park, Barnard Park, Crescent Park... I don't know what you're talking about. All the black kids I knew were basically weed. Later on some tried shrooms and x but mostly weed.

I call bull shit to this story of yours. I know many white people who did time for possession and delivery. They were able to put their lives together eventually and be successful. Any fool knows how many neighborhoods are ruined by the chokehold of drugs and violence, which go hand in hand. Unfortunately those happen to be minority neighborhoods in this town. They’re not doubling up manpower and sending mission teams to the slow districts to try to catch some white guy selling coke in a bar bathroom or smoking a joint walking down an alley. You’re just plain silly dude. We see the low crime districts who pay the most taxes get the least police service. As far as your unfair practices I also call bullshit. For some reason I don’t see garbage all over my streets, open drug spots in plain view, grown men hanging out drinking on the streets all day every day and people running around smoking reefer like cigarettes on the streets where I live. Before you start throwing around racial injustice you better look long and hard. All the education and money in the world can’t solve those problems. That will only work if it comes from within.

One issue with "weed", particularly here in Chicago, is its use as street currency. If anyone thinks that legalizing MJ will put an end to Chicago street crime, they would be sorely mistaken. I predict MORE violence, not less, with the legalization of Marijuana. At least in the city. The people who push the legalization narrative know nothing about the street economy.

Also, I saw a report some months back about a huge uptick in the number of single car crashes in Colorado after legalization. California had an MJ related fatal not six days into the new lay. #justsaying

Now if this excuse for a politician is really concerned about black and brown people, why inflict long, agonizing deaths upon them? I guess it's the same reason abortion has such support by "some" politicians, the same demographic is much more effected than others.
Black and brown people that support these politicians are supporting their own demise. If this political party ever gained total control, the facade of "it's for your own good" would be totally dropped and anyone not marching to their drum, well they would just disappear.

What Prickwinkle wont admit, or perhaps she's to stupid to realize, is its the system she represents that causes the disproportionate amount of chickenshit weed arrests in black communities. Ive known very, very few white cops with an axe to grind working ghetto districts. Ive probably known as many racist black cops as white ones but either are very rare. Those with real hate in their heart are very rare.

Its the quota's, the quota's, the pressure to treat people as stats, the fucking Boss's wanting to look good so they can get that next promotion. After all a CB # is a CB # whether its for 10 lbs or a roach and they have to show numbers working these high crime Districts. And then some genius links OT eligibility to production and "everybody", even office staff on lunch, are all looking for the black kid who "threw the green leafy from his pocket to the ground".

The parents of these kids may be assholes but children come into the world innocent. The kid comes into the world with nothing, nobody gives a shit about him, his chances are low to begin with and then saddling him with an IR# over a small amount of weed IS fucked up. But the copper on the street isn't the one who cooked up this bag of shit, tho they will get blamed anyway. And Looking at the hand puppets running this shit show I dont see any changes coming any time soon.

Unless they were hard gangsters I gave a lot of these poor kids a break. And I hope the cop who had a kind word for them then later helped them in life.

I'm not gonna wag my finger at any coppers who support legalization, but in case you needed a refresher, this happened over the holidays.

Christmas tragedy: Rookie CHP officer killed by suspected drunk driver

http://www.ksbw.com/article/chp-officer-killed-in-christmas-eve-crash/14496223

One of those suspected of DUI is a 22-year-old Hayward man accused of being high and drunk when he killed CHP officer Andrew Camilleri Sr., who was working on Christmas Eve with his partner, Officer Jonathan Velasquez. The two were out on a holiday maximum enforcement patrol, ironically, to protect the Bay Area roads from unsafe drivers.

https://www.mercurynews.com/2017/12/25/i-880-in-hayward-closed-by-accident-that-injured-chp-officers/

The CHP on Monday afternoon had yet to disclose the name of the 22-year-old driver who was being treated for serious injuries at a hospital. Officers believe he was under the influence of marijuana and alcohol when he got behind the wheel and headed south on 880. Sanchez said he was coming home from a party, and “obviously had too much to drink and too much to smoke.” The crash was reported shortly before midnight on Sunday.

California has weed related fatal less than a week after legalization.

https://www.mercurynews.com/2018/01/06/concord-highway-242-closed-after-multivehicle-crash-near-highway-4/

CONCORD — A woman was driving approximately 100 mph before her vehicle overturned at Highway 242 just south of Highway 4, causing a collision that sent three others to hospital on Saturday, authorities said.

The 35-year-old woman, who lives in Martinez, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana and possibly a controlled substance, according to the California Highway Patrol.
As per Colorado: Prior to legalization, there was no effective method for marijuana testing.

Exclusive: Traffic fatalities linked to marijuana are up sharply in Colorado. Is legalization to blame?

https://www.denverpost.com/2017/08/25/colorado-marijuana-traffic-fatalities/

The number of drivers involved in fatal crashes in Colorado who tested positive for marijuana has risen sharply each year since 2013, more than doubling in that time, federal and state data show. A Denver Post analysis of the data and coroner reports provides the most comprehensive look yet into whether roads in the state have become more dangerous since the drug’s legalization.

Increasingly potent levels of marijuana were found in positive-testing drivers who died in crashes in Front Range counties, according to coroner data since 2013 compiled by The Denver Post. Nearly a dozen in 2016 had levels five times the amount allowed by law, and one was at 22 times the limit. Levels were not as elevated in earlier years.

But then, I've never used alcohol to the point of intoxication, and I have never used illegal drugs, or even prescription opiates.

Oh really? You have hard statistics that will support these allegations?

While I'm not going to pretend that adults buying weed for kids isn't happening...we have the same problem with Tobacco and Alcohol and Firearms. So not surprised at all.

Legal Weed increasing the Homeless Population? Bull shit...its the morons coming from out of state to buy it...they just don't have a house in Colorado.

Increasing Vehicle Accidents? Horse shit. Show me Hard Data that DUI Weed = Car Crash. Cause when I smoked weed in the 90's...I drove about 5 under the limit so as to NOT get noticed...you tend to be a bit paranoid on weed. Not Like the way that Booze can make you feel invincible.

You are an ignorant moron of the highest order who is just too dumb to find out anything for yourself. There has been plenty written about this in recent reports, Bloomburg, WSJ. Just get you head out of your ass, put out the joint and find out for yourself.
