Driving Stoned vs. Driving Sober

Here’s an interesting video aired on British television that’s been gaining popularity online.

It’s not the most scientifically sound piece of research on the planet, but it does illustrate the point that maybe driving while stoned isn’t as dangerous as everyone makes it out to be. The consensus is that a healthy dose of paranoia after smoking generates increased concentration in the driver. On the flip side, driving while drunk makes your more liable to take risks.

Yay! An intelligent informed debate about drugs and driving! About freakin time. I have never had a problem driving stoned and I have only been in one accident with a stoned driver...which was caused by a drunk driver.
