And, as for the title of this thread, 4 out of 10 are who admit too it. I think that number is likely a bit higher than that.

Two different substances that need to be addressed independantly. Marijuana affects individuals differently. For some it actually improves focus. Especially those on the ADHD spectrum. For others they shouldn't leave the couch.


I don't know enough to disagree but if a cop wants to test your spit on a Saturday evening and you last smoked on that Friday night, it sounds as though your screwed.
It sounds like those will be the ones treating alcohol and marijuana the same.

Thanks for your post. I do have to question the statement of heavy users have a higher tolerance. Totally agree that is likely true as it is with other drugs such as Alcohol, although I question impairment.

My thoughts are even with a tolerance, you still have a degree of impairment, where judgement may not be 100% as rapid and other decision making skills, delayed reaction time, distorted sense of your surroundings, poor coordination. feeling anxious or panicky, feeling dizzy or tired these could be lower then when you are totally clean from a THC high.

What are your thoughts..as a drinker of alcohol even after three drinks I can recognize some of my own abilities are impaired. Experts say even at .10 milligrams of alcohol in your blood, weather you are a seasoned drinker or not, you have a degree of impairment.

Because simply testing positive for thc does not necessarily indicate impairment. Meanwhile a sleepy driver could be far more impaired and hazardous without testing positive for anything.




What you describe are those not the side effects of being high on THC? Does it impair your ability to focus?

I have seen the effects of others in a social environment, personally I wouldn't get into a vehicle with someone who is high or would I want to work near them for that matter.

So from the title am I to assume that the other 6 don't know how to drive?
Deja Poo, the feeling I've heard all this crap before!
