2002-03-21 04:09:18 PM  
when was the last time a stoner got a speeding ticket? oh yea, NEVER HAPPENS. hell, i cant even get up the motivation to beat my wife when im high.
2002-03-21 04:09:52 PM  
If by driving you mean tooling along at 20 mph with your wipers on, then yes.
2002-03-21 04:10:05 PM  
Duh, can I get a grant to do a study like that?
2002-03-21 04:11:25 PM  
It appears this woman needs to jump in the car and start driving over to my house, especially if she's stoned!

Driving stoned is hard. Cops will pull you over for driving too carefully. Like coming to a full stop at a stop sign in an empty parking lot. You have to be able to not overdo it.

Ha-ha, funny story...

First time I got really high I had taken the company van home. We were driving around in this big smoke-filled van. I was baked off my face. Driving around at 25 mph. Gah. Later that night I puked up a bunch of powdered doughnuts. Ouch.

2002-03-21 04:12:05 PM  
Driving is fun when you're high, it's like a video game.
2002-03-21 04:12:12 PM  
Wow! You mean a mild hallucinogen impairs your coordination less than a strong central nervous system depressant? Who would have known it!

New study shows it's easier to get a Cosmiverse link posted than any other link.
Follow up study to show that Cosmiverse articles are generally lame and non-informative.

I've just bought stock in cosmiverse. I see UFOs everywhere.................................................................... .................................................................

I performed this test 20 years ago!
2002-03-21 04:13:08 PM  
I was going to read the Comiverse article, but then I got high.
2002-03-21 04:13:09 PM  
diogenes: good. homegirl needs a little slapping around now and then. heh.
2002-03-21 04:15:11 PM  
I make special cigarettes just for this purpose. :)

Driving from Atlanta to Savannah would be boring as hell if I wasn't smoking a J.
2002-03-21 04:15:48 PM  
Yeah, the trick about driving stoned (according to my evil, sinful friends who are going to Hell and jail) is not to zone out and slow down too much. And don't shiat yourself if you get pulled over, because that makes the cop suspicious.

Of coures, I remember when I first started getting high, I was waaay too scared (and my tolerance much too low) to drive within hours of smoking. And this is the Safe Way To Be, kids. Driving impaired, be it drunk, stoned, or just really pissed off, is a really bad idea. Unless your parents are important politicians.

a posting at 4:20 imagine that...time to hop in the car!

Hmm.. now that I read the article, assuming they're not just pulling terminology out of their asses, it does contain a non-obvious tidbit: One glass of wine (i.e., an amount small nough that it's legal to drive immediately after consuming it) is more impairing r than one joint (a rather larger dose of marijuana, probably more akin to at least a few servings of alcohol).
2002-03-21 04:22:56 PM  
I read about a UK study once which was intended to show how dangerous the effects of cannabis on driving were. They scrapped the study after it turned out that people drove -more safely- after smoking small amounts of cannabis.. of course, a massive dose was dangerous.
2002-03-21 04:26:21 PM  
I can't believe they had to do a study in this day and age to figure something out that my grandparents likely knew. Sheeesh.
2002-03-21 04:29:01 PM  

I think that's Ha-sheesh
not Sheeesh
2002-03-21 04:32:25 PM  
people on 'ludes should drive
2002-03-21 04:32:36 PM  
Worst tag ever.

I drive better high then sober... its the only time i drive the speed limit.
2002-03-21 04:32:52 PM  
Lol Farkfurter! Anyway, give Cosmiverse a break people. Jeeze its not their fault that mods post their links. They are pretty intersting usually. If you dont like it, dont click on it. Jeeze....
2002-03-21 04:33:18 PM  
I wish they had pot when I was a kid.
2002-03-21 04:33:30 PM

Did someone order a Symphony Orchestra?

Possibly while high?

Cypress Hill, I'm looking in your direction...

Yet, amazingly, alcohol is perfectly legal while marijuana is classified in the same drug category as crack. Oh well! In the words of the great Woddy Harrelson when asked if he felt marijuana should be legalized, "I don't care. I never have any problem getting some."

Pulled over for being too careful:

I once slowed down at a flashing yellow at around 10:30 at night and a cop pulled me over. He comes over to the car and asks me why I slowed down. I say "They taught us in Driver's Ed that if you approach a flashing yellow light, you are to slow down and proceed with caution". He had no answer for that, so he asked for my license and registration.

The funny thing is, I had left my license at home, and I had a brand new quarter in my right pocket, and my bowl in my left pocket, no license and I was also teenager at the time.

I managed to talk my way out of the traffic stop, and I never drove in Milford, MA after dark again.
