Hey guys, So I live in Canada, B.C for that matter. - Marijuana is going to be legal for recreation use as of October 17 2018. While this 'drug' was illegal, I found, as well as many others, that the police departments didn't take it completely serious. Where I live, if you would be smoking a joint on the public streets you would be stopped, probably told to stomp the joint out, and that's it. I have personally been pulled over in the past with marijuana, bong, grinder, rollies, knife, lighter, everything to say that I was high while driving - on top of that, I was high, I was baked. What happened? Nothing, I didn't get pulled over due to anything driving related I was pulled over for the infraction of not having a front license plate. The officer didn't even have a clue I was high even though I just took 4 massive bong tokes before hand, which would probably put me 5x over the 'legal limit'. I used to be an active car enthusiast, I would drive 100's of kilometers per day with friends just for fun. One of my favorite things to do was get high and drive, I have never caused an accident under the influence of alcohol, and I have avoided many accidents from the bad decisions of other drivers. Let's be honest, there are some people out there that you wonder how the hell they have even obtained a license to begin with. I have known people who have driven their whole lives high, and work and drive high all the time - they never run into any problems, unless it's a road block! I'm also very fluent in bike riding, I also like to do that under the influence of marijuana. Now let's put this into a bit more of a perspective, if I drink enough to be over 5x the legal limit on alcohol, you can guarantee that's at least 6-10 beers which is enough for ANYONE to be under enough impairment to have bad decision making. On top of that, I have ridden my mountain bike tons of times drunk, and completely bailed hard as fuck and have had alot of bike accidents while being drunk - but never stoned out of my mind! Same thing for driving, I used to be an active street racer / backyard mechanic. I could do all sorts of wicked shit with my vehicles, stunts, etc - even under the influence of marijuana. I've drank and drove a few times, I never liked it, and one time I severely smashed my car up. That's my experiences with alcohol VS marijuana. Not to mention.. With the new laws upcoming, people are being arrested under investigation for driving while impaired just for the smell of it. Officers are pushing people further than needed to fail sobriety tests. They aren't taking any proper things into consideration and it is costing individual people thousands of dollars - I think it's absolutely insane. THC impairment also depends on how chronic of a user you are, example, they will be ruling out any medicinal users on a federal level in court - how is that fair? There is no medicinal alcoholics, so this whole thing to me is a joke. Opinions?
