    PN,

    We may always agree, but I am absolutely with you on this. Impaired period, alcohol, prescription or what ever, pay attention and drive.

    Impaired is still impaired no matter the drug you used to get there; although around here Texting while driving is the bigger problem

    First of all, alcohol is a DRUG, drunk driving IS "drugged driving."
    Secondly, THC stays in your system for days, weeks, months, so THC testing is not an accurate test of "impaired" driving.
    I'd submit that driving under the influence of alcohol is more profoundly impairing than most popular illegal drugs. Now, prescription drugs, that's a different story.

    You are right about prescription drugs and the different story is it can be contrled but someone doesn't want that to happen. I wonder why??

    More people die from overdosing on prescription drugs every year than all illegal drugs combined. Period.

    Yup! Our big pharmaceutical companies are OUR drug cartels and probably kill more people than all the Mexican cartels combined!

    YES. But what do you expect from such a drug induced, liberal minded state like California where over 2/3 the population is either a moron, illegal, druggie, sexual deviant or all of the above!

    California is the largest agricultural state in America and is the world's 8th largest economy for a COUNTRY. In the middle of all your silly accusations, I am over 60, never been arrested, have a double masters, owned my own business for 30 years, never had a traffic ticket since age 17, have three kids, two with masters, the other with a bachelors and a professional baseball player. My deceased wife had a PHD and spoke many different languages. And I've smoked pot for over 40 years. So much for your intolerance.

    And despite, if sabio is correct, 2/3 of California's population being mormon, illegal, druggie, or sexual deviant--they still produce a 20 bln in balance of federal payments for redistribution to the red states. Imagine how much more we could contribute to red state welfare if we weren't stoned all the time!

    No, I don't remember people saying that. Strawmen can be fun to build in a field but they're no good in conversation.

    More dangerous? How can you judge that? I suppose that it would depend on the drug and how much was taken, but I barely trust people who are clean and sober on the road. If you are going to drink or do drugs, please stay off the road. The life you save may be mine.

    The statement "drugged driving" include ANY drug,even OTC drugs. Elderly drivers are very likely to be under the care of a Dr and on some drug. The D.M.V. technically prohibit driving under the influence of any mind altering drug even if legally prescribed. Fact:- Unless a epileptic is using a anti-seizure Rx, they are disallowed to drive. Some of these include=phenobarbitol, lorazepam, Valium among others.

    i do not see any difference, in the act of driving while intoxicated. but what are the limits, of what is considered impared? is probably what is, to be considered. even how much can you, text and drive safely? alcohol tends to make people, more aggressive for the conditions. whereas the other stuff, mellows you out.

    It would entirely depend upon the type of drug, as well as the experience the driver has in regards to using that drug

    Is this even a question!? The numbers already answered it. If they were smart though they would create an oral swap test and get some DWI money.

    In California, drunk or drugged, gang or illegal, liberal democrats, Hollywood, Botox Pelosi. Normal people get out of there, nothing but an over-taxed cesspool!

    I feel you are in better control if you are not under the influence of either one. Both are against the law to operate a motor vehicle using either one
