    The bold part is pretty much what I'm getting at. Just because you can drive stoned, doesn't mean everyone can. It's silly to think that they should make it legal because you and a select minority are capable of driving high.

    Maybe they could give me a driver test while I'm stoned, and I could get a special green license and a huge pot leaf on it.

    Driving stoned will never be legal, and it shouldn't be.

    Everything else is just noise.

    having a tolerance must suck. i rather.. every once in a while i smoke, it feels like a new experience. thats how it should be.

    i know alcoholics that think theyve grown a tolerance and still think they can drive.
    fuckers.

    If I'm able to pass a field sobriety test would there still be an issue?

    Well, I suppose you could "get away" with it in that case.

    With alcohol, of course you can have some in your system, the usual limit of course is .08, however people can still fail tests when under that limit, and people can still be prosecuted for driving under that limit.

    I don't know any way to test "how high" you are when you drive, so the best rule is probably none at all I would think.

    this is what kept me from going to sleep this morning.

    i began to wonder and break down this marijuana legalization "thing"
    and came to realize why theres been such a problem... theres no way to measure marijuana in your system with a quickness, like alcohol.

    until theres a method to measure in the field, then i doubt we'll see full blown legalization or real decriminalization anytime soon.

    Well, if you are intoxicated, while you may not be able to give something like a BAC (blood alcohol content) test like you can for alcohol, you can still test to see if the person is sober and has normal reaction. Hell, wave a cheese burger in their face, if they grab it, toss them in the back :p

    But the simple fact is, people drive stoned NOW, while it is illegal, it is happening around you every day. If it were legalized, just like drunk driving has been changed in the mind of the culture from OK ("One for the road") to universally dangerous (Think MADD), a similar educational process/shift needs to be undertaken for pot.

    Also, this issue is pretty far down the list of importance in the whole scheme of pot legalization.

    Kekekeke! I agree.

    I hope nobody thinks I'm OK with people driving under the influence of any mind altering substance. Y'all got my point, though. Right?

    Well yah, that tells if you have it in your system, it doesn't tell how much there is.

    the delta 9 form of thc is the amount that is in your blood stream and is bacically what makes you high, not the entire thc molecule... which leaves your system very slowly over a week or so... this is why you can still have thc in your system and not be high(like when being piss tested) unlike alcohol which when it leaves your system you are not drunk

    That's my point, you can't test for pot like you can test for alcohol, so a field blood/saliva/breath/whatever test won't work to determine sobriety/intoxication.

    i don't know what the difference is, if it is legal or not... how many people are gonna start smoking weed now since it is legalized??? it just means, lesss money spent on incarcerated 'criminals' and less money spent on law enforcement looking and messing with pot head 'criminals' and less time and money spent on trials for these 'criminals'

    legalizing marijuana isn't going to destroy the town... in fact it may create more jobs, more tourism, more local revenue... and a whole new market of income

    sorry if i am not communicating to you that well, THC delta 9 is only in your system when you are high... it is the only way to test if you are high... after the THC delta 9 wears off, it is processed and broken down then absorbed into the fatty tissues of your body, and untestable except for a blood test (which tests only for THC, not THC Delta 9) or in a urine sample (which tests only for THC, not THC Delta 9)

    And there are many other illegal organizations profiting. In the NW, it is a lot of Asian gangs from Canada actually.
