Twice the number of pot car accident fatalities since legalization in Washington State
The Bellingham Herald is reporting that "The number of Washington state drivers involved in fatal crashes that tested positive for THC — the principal psychoactive ingredient in cannabis — has more than doubled since the state legalized recreational marijuana use in December 2012, a recent study showed." That is significant.
Someone did raise the point that testing positive for thc in your system in different than being under the influence since thc stays in your system 3 weeks after smoking a joint but you obviously aren't under the influence for 3 weeks. Nevertheless, there are way too many people that smoke way too much pot every day and many of those individuals think it's safe for them to drive while under the influence and even blaze while driving. That is complete irresponsibility.
