All downhill from here....

Guess that means LE will have to change their interrogation procedures for traffic stops from over boozing to over smoking pot.

Cannot wait.

Yep.

And there is no nice blow test to get objective data.

So now I get to share the roads with drunks, people looking at their cell phones, people talking on their phones, and people toking on a joint.

Outstanding.

Seriously, you really shouldn’t equate someone who took a couple hits of weed with someone who is drunk. Totally different effects.

Not advocating getting high while driving, nor driving while stoned, but using your list of things to be wary of, drunks and people paying attention to their phones are much more dangerous while driving.

I’m wondering if south county areas will see
a large influx of Ohioans driving into Michigan to smoke legally?

Here’s a business opportunity,
open your house to Ohioans to visit and get high.
Have a $10 cover charge at the door.

Reminiscent of the ‘70’s when Ohio 18-20 yr. olds came to Michigan to drink.

Business opportunity my butt

Speaking of yacking on cell phones, This guy pulled up next to us on Carpenter road and Textile yesterday in a Tesla, yacking on his cell phone.  I thought those cars have hands free?  I know my lowly Focus does.

YES!

https://www.freep.com/story/news/marijuana/2018/11/07/marijuana-legal-michigan-convictions/1919598002/?from=new-cookie

Don't be too smug about it.  You are are one the reasons the American car companies produce an overpriced product, because they condone smoking dope on breaks and stoned employees screw things up...

I'd be careful about boasting about your smoking habits.  All it would take is a call to HR and you'd be screwed big time as in unemployed and I know someone who knows who you work for.

I was totally surprised by the number of people that voted for the marijuana issue.  It must have really stirred up the young crowd to go vote.  I run in an older circle 50 and up and have not talked to anyone that voted or said they would vote for legal marijuana..

I didn't give any commentary on what is the best and what is the worst of the lot.

Personally I don't want to share the road with anyone doing any of those things.

I believe driving deserves our full attention and our state shouldn't be impaired when we decide to hit the roads.

I'm guessing the pudding pit parties will be lively next season! 

as far as the effects of the law on out of staters...  Ohio targets out of state plates  now they may stop and start on their own!

Sure do. Seen that play out countless times on the Ohio Turnpike.  Don't be black with Michigan plates and driving an expensive car because you'll be puled over and searched.

Use to be if you were just driving a vehicle with Mich plates you'd get pulled over for about anything on the stretch of highway from Findlay to Mansfield area..It was so bad that I always rented a car when going to Newark Oh.  And I always ask for one without Mich plates as there were a lot of them in the Avia/Hertz fleets in Toledo

Firstly, fuckyou!  Do what ever you think makes you a man, I have no worries.  I haven't smoked in ages, but support the legalization.  Frankly, what needs to be unlawful that causes more harm would be booze.

I knew I'd get a snotty answer.  Being the little twerp you are, not unexpected, in fact it was expected.  I'm happy you support it.  I don't and never will.

Of course I'm not going to resort to telling you to FO.  Don't care. That just shows me the kind of twerp you really are.
