I've driven drunk and driven stoned (forgive me my sordid past). When drunk I couldn`t tell what the drat I was doing and didn`t care. I could`ve run over a child and just fell asleep at the crash site. I use such a visceral visual on purpose so calm down and read it in context. I`ve never been pulled over or involved in any accident while drinking. It scared the poo out of me and I have never done it since. When I was stoned I made damn sure I set the cruise control and drove straight as hell while adhering to all traffic laws. I was aware enough to make very important decisions. I was pulled over for a tail light (wasn`t my car) and was let go with no consequences. I am not condoning one or the other either way; just relaying my experiences with each on drugs I am familiar with. I do not dispute the fact that each changes our perspectives so may impact our driving but if we`re going down that slippery slope we`d have to look at every driver in the world on pharmaceuticals.
