    I read today that states allowing recreational use of weed have experienced lower vehicle fatality rates. I had to laugh. Driving at 35 MPH does have less chances of fatality accidents. Some will not get this but others will.

    I also read that these states also have higher instances of emergency room visits due to people coming in with uncontrollable vomiting and breathing problems. This makes me really wonder what is in the weed these people are smoking?

    That's pretty funny .

    I've never smoked pot, probably never will. I don't think it's legal in idaho, I know it is in Washington where I just moved from.

    I'm pretty well convinced that pot is about as unhealthy as tobacco. Before I arrived at that conclusion, I noted some alarming effects while driving in hill country. In daylight even.

    Twenty years ago when I was still smoking cigarettes I had a job that didn't allow smoking inside the building. So I wore the strongest nicotine patch. On my break I went outside and lit up a cigarette. I mean to tell you I never had such a buzz from smoking weed. BTW my weed smoking days ended about thirty years ago and even then it was an occasional party thing.

    I guarantee that nicotine overdose was very vivid. Nobody can tell me nicotine is not a drug.

    I guess that when you buy Betty Crocker's brownie mix you had better check the labels to make sure they don't have any pot in them. I think Girl Scout cookies are ok though!!!!:puker::sarcasm:

    I know that seemed really funny but I actually knew a person that didn't inhale. She didn't know she was supposed to.

    Disclaimer: I never exceed the speed limit on my bike that will indicate 164 MPH on the speedo.

    Driving while stoned is difficult for many people. I couldn't do it well enough to consider it a regular occurrence back in the day. The paranoia of being pulled over was too much not to mention lack of concentration.

    I don't need those headaches for anything. I haven't smoked anything since the early 1980s. And for all of the stoners who believe pot cures everything, if that were true George Carlin would still be alive telling jokes.

    True story.
    I had her inhale a cigarette and she got so buzzed and then sick. So I have to say maybe Bill was telling the truth. But I doubt it.
