Woke up yesterday to a radio report of bad crash on Highway 1.
Woke up this morning to a radio report of bad overnight crash in Coquitlam.
And these at a time when pot isn't legal. If 'sober' drivers can cause the crashes I hear about, what'll happen when they're stoned?

Wasn't there a stat once that suggested drunk driving was safer than sober? Something like "10% of accidents involved drunk driving" so that meant that sober drivers were responsible 90% of the time.

It's highway 1, too much volume and simple too small in many smarts to accommodate traffic safely, and some bad driving mixed in, some reason BC folks can't drive, but I think much of it is linked to frustration because of the bad congestion we experience daily because our road system is so poor.

I believe the one overnight crash though was due to a pedestrian walking down the highway.

What makes you think drivers are necessarily 'sober'? Just because it's illegal, doesn't mean people aren't partaking.

I'd rather be in a vehicle driven by a someone under the influence of cannabis than under the influence of alcohol, personally. Sober and not under the influence of anything would be preferable, of course.

The way I look at it is giving people the feeling that smoking pot's ok, with the inference that driving'll be ok too, will be like adding a pile of new horse manure onto an existing pile of stinking horse manure. It's just a bigger pile to have to clear up when the ideal is not to have kept the horse in the first place.

Perhaps I shouldn't drive if that's all I can come up with... and I'm sober.

There are laws to be put in place to accompany the new legislation on pot though (in addition to federal laws), so hopefully your fears won't be realised. I think it would be naive to believe that drivers don't already drive 'under the influence' though.

I didn't think it possible for anyone to have missed out on the reams of press about the laws re: driving under the influence and the new devices and training for police to detect it.

Prices are less likely to crash. Huge consolidation of growers. One grower in Canada now has 1.4m Sq Feet in production. Two or 3 other big growers are buying up the small ones. More control on production and pricing.

As a matter of interest, is any medical-cannabis grower a publicly quoted company? Made-in-Canada cannabis oil is available here in Cayman on prescription, and I wondered who might be making it.
