    But … but, all the dopers said, let us have legal dope and accidents and deaths will go down! Bull Crap, expect more and more drugged drivers causing accidents and killing innocent people, because you know, weed is legal!

      Watch reefer madness lately you crazy zealot? I bet phones and computer screens installed in a car dashes cause more accidents than alcohol and drivers that have smoked weed combined. Get over it, the people voted. You sound like a bunch of liberals who have not gotten their way.
