DUI risk is no argument against legalizing cannabis

Grover Beach



 It’s very easy for people who have no first-hand experience with marijuana to give into the “Reefer Madness” thinking that is still common in the U.S. because of the media. I can report it is no more addicting than video games (which would also be unsafe to do while driving). Though there may be a very few people who contend driving high is a non-issue, legalization proponents overwhelmingly condemn that and point out the risk does not warrant a complete prohibition of marijuana use. We don’t outlaw texting, though it causes accidents.
