Recreational pot is still illegal in this state so far a state I know, and I would suspect that even medical marijuana use would be subject to laws governing driving while impaired.
But now every time I drive on the main thoroughfare that goes through this area, at at least one of the major intersection I am bathed in a cloud of skunk. And half the time I can spot the car that it is coming from—the cabin completely bathed in smoke.
This is possibly my worst fear about marijuana normalization/legalization—people using it in cars.
WTF? Ever since I was a kid, we have been bathed in messages about impaired driving, whether alcohol or phone use.
And those things are legal. Marijuana isn’t really yet legal. What can be done about this? Is M.A.D.D. still around?
