Stoned Drivers Are Killing More and More Innocent Victims

According to the Washington State Marijuana Impact Report, the incidents of marijuana-impaired driving are increasing dramatically. Fatal driving accidents have risen 122 percent between 2010 and 2014, according to the Washington State Traffic Safety Commission. Marijuana is big business in Washington state. There are more marijuana businesses than Starbucks in Washington state (despite the fact that Starbucks was founded in Seattle).

The traffic safety organization AAA has its own reports on marijuana use among drivers in fatal crashes, and the picture is equally bleak.

    That is just as surprising as spontaneous jihad.

  • Let’s legalise it, man!

    Brain damaged potheads shall be banned from operating any “manual control” vehicles with the exception of 25mph max speed “landscaper specials”.

    Of course the $1000. PER YEAR drivers permit for your humble 2025 or earlier “classic U drive” will be quite a barrier for most of the rest of us as well.

    In today’s world this won’t matter, however all the troops of hell will be let loose on anyone caught smoking a cigarette while driving.

    Bring on the self-driving cars.

    “too many employees were coming in high after the drug was legalized for
    recreational use in 2012. He was firing too many people and made the
