Question about D.U.I. and marijuana
When somebody is smoking marijuana and driving, and they are pulled over, do they normally get charged with a D.U.I. along with the other relevant charges(paraphnelia, possesion, etc.)? I'm not asking this for personal reasons... I was watching COPS and an officer pulled over a couple teenagers riding around and smoking pot. He let them go with just a possession citation(instead of the heavier paraphnelia charge) because they were cooperative. But he didn't say anything about a possible D.U.I. charge and it didn't really make sense to me. Being under the influence of marijuana and driving has to be as bad or worse than alcohol.
But then again, perhaps there's no good way to test whether somebody's under the influence of marijuana, so it'd get thrown out in court anyway. I'm pretty liberal on my marijuana views. Don't smoke it myself, but I am for decriminalization(not legalization). But people definitely shouldn't be smoking it and driving.
I had a stick of Carefree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality. Mitch Hedberg
