Even over-the-counter medication can impair a person's ability to drive. Being impaired is still being impaired, no one is arguing with you there.People that smoke marijuana are impaired just like people that take and/or abuse opiates, benzodiazepines and it should be treated no different
Well I think the reason is because just like with Alcohol there are laws in place to prevent anyone from under the age of 21 from buying and possessing, but no law can prevent someone under the age from consuming. Tobacco laws were put on the books years ago too preventing those under the age of 18 from smoking? How many teens do you know, know about or even seen that are still smoking? The same can even be said of marijuana right now. Laws just create a consequence if you habitually break them over and over. In most states possession of small amounts of marijuana is a misdemeanor.But I still think we need to reform our laws regarding marijuana. Put laws in place that help prevent minors from obtaining the stuff (set the age limit at 21 [just like alcohol], card everyone, and enforce a DOUBLE penalty [to that of alcohol] for those that sell marijuana to or purchase marijuana for a minor).
Evidently you didn't read what I said or you've read it from a skewed perspective. I said nothing about anything like that.Then by your standards, why don't we just bring back alcohol prohibition? What did that do for society then? What does marijuana prohibition do for our society now?
Think about that one very carefully.
Here's a great place to start learning the facts about marijuana.I just think this needs to be thought out and a decision made by people that really know all the facts about marijuana and not just what they believe or heard. Most of that is BS.
