we already have legal alcohol and prescription drugs. Why would legal marijuana be any different

What's a tad narrow minded is your assumption that the roads will suddenly become full of MJ impaired drivers upon legalization. People either use it or don't. Just like alcohol. The only difference will be people will be able to purchase it from Gov't approved vendors with a taxation to benefit all of society rather than into the pockets of the Hell's Angels that funds all kinds of other illicit activities.
And IMO, impairment by MJ on the roads may even be reduced with legalization thru better training of officers to detect impairment and some money to actually develop roadside screening devices much like those for alcohol.
Your "sky is falling" presumption" is rather dated.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.

The best solution to the possible problems associated with legalization can be addressed by treating marijuana in the same manner as alcohol. Sell it in liquor stores and apply the same management to MJ as they do to booze. Taxes,suppliers, no open smoking, age limit, and the list goes on. These are all addressed by provincial government liquor control boards. As far as testing for impairment, wasn't there a recent story about a UBCO professor inventing a hand held device that could detect marijuana on your breath?

I would like to see the hand held screening device, marijuana stays in your system approx. one month after indulging, how's that gonna work?

There seems to be an already recognized level for Impaired driving investigations.

Perhaps you will reconsider when your neighbour decides to smoke it and you get the lovely smell up your nasal passages? And then you can be the recipient of a stoned neighbour who also drinks alchohol on top of that. If it's easy to get - hell why not? It's just an added legal extra right? lol. :-X

Of all the smells in the world I can think of a million that would be worse to smell -

I can assume you have smelled it before??? (Not sure how since it has been illegal our entire lifetimes by such an effective drug policy.......)

Of all the arguements - aroma??? Really? Me thinks the well has run dry......

Have to agree. Would prefer the odd MJ smoke to 24/7 cow poop.

Perhaps I'll come on board with your line of thinking when the Gov't makes it illegal for my neighbor to have five cats that pizz in my yard and throws the litter box out the back door. I'll take the occasional waft of mj smoke any day over the legal stench of cat pizz and poop invading my airspace.
What are u gonna complain about next that affects you in no way. The Orientals cooking fish next door that offends you or the southeast Asians curry dinner?
Get a grip or move to the bush somewhere where you have no possible neighbor that might offend your olfactory senses.

Far better than smoking is eating. No stinky and smelly clothes.
