Not much pondering to do. You are making a case against impaired driving. Maybe if Mr. Laurie had been drinking, he could have just passed out behind the wheel. And as far as I know, at least over here, it is illegal to drive while under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. And that wouldn't change if pot were legalized. Impaired driving and distracted driving (cell phones, munching on a Big Mac combo, etc.) are dumb, and illegal ... but I doubt you will see a move towards banning cell phones or making it illegal to pick up at a drive thru at Rotten Ronnies.

It is illegal to drive whislt using a cell phone , but the police never seem to catch anybody on their phone. Across road from me is St.Annes school and I have observed about 20% of parents on the phone whilst driving with children in the car.

You obviously haven't read the article Eric, he wasn't driving.

A short time later, with Miss Whittaker driving, they were on a motorway on the outskirts of Barcelona when they stopped in the outside lane due to traffic congestion.

She said Mr Laurie shouted ‘this is it’, before getting out of the car and climbing over the central reservation into the opposite carriageway.

Comments are interesting reading too, on the LT website.

Apparently cannabis is no more harmful than using a broth posy, or putting mint sauce on a lamb chop.

You live and learn.

Oh no do you mean I've been putting my life at risk all these years, my parents have a lot to answer for giving me all that broth, and I've just posed writing this reply as I've just been in the kitchen and dumped the mint sauce in the bin

'An international team found those who started using cannabis below the age of 18 - while their brains were still developing - suffered a drop in IQ.'

BBC News - Young cannabis smokers run risk of lower IQ, report claims

Are you trying to suggest 'lacking motivation' should be added to the ever growing list of side effects?

Ok, leave it to me.

I'll do it now.

No suggestions. Just humour. I just think of bill hicks sometimes when I think of this

Anyway this a study of 1000 people? and they are making out that this is fact?. It is totally ridiculous. Oh but if its in the mainstream media, people will believe it.

Worse you feel the need to bring up the thread again when most people here don't want anything to do with it. Seems like another attempt to provoke kestrelx. If im wrong about that, so be it. I am only human.

These surveys are manipulated to make a point, serve an agenda! What drug have you been taking to make you such a bitter and twisted individual?
