    um, can you site your references to studies, statistics showing motor-vehicle accidents caused by Cannabis use only? Funny how I never read of any accidents caused by Cannabis, just articles like this one making bold claims. If driving while stoned was such a problem then one would expect to read about it in the paper on a regular basis.

    That is still not a study, it is one case, I can prove anything with one case. We should ban walking then because it kills people.

    Did you not have the ability to click on the links in the article? Or did you not read the article? There are two links to the full studies in the 3rd paragraph.
    In reference to your statement:"...one would expect to read about it in the paper on a regular basis", this is the case. There has been an increase of accidents that involve the use of pot here in Washington (also in Colorado) since the drug was legalized for recreational use. Across the nation, according to a study:"Cannabinol...was found in 12.2% of those deceased drivers during 2010, (up from 4.2% in 1999). Pot was the most common...detected by...toxicology screenings.
    "The increased availability (and acceptance) of [pot]...are fueling the higher rate...in deceased drivers."
