Ryan Bailey, Medical Marijuana Grower, Sentenced To 6 Years In Prison
Sentencing an individual to 6 years in prison which will most definetely be a life changing experience seems extremely harsh for someone who was simply growing plants. Yes those plant might be illegal but the majority of people across this planet can see that those reasons are not valid and have no true backing to their claims. How can we send away someone for 6 years for growing mairjuana when rapists, robbers, and even murders get off with shorter sentences? Are we telling the public you are better off robbing a bank than growing a plant?
One toke over the line? Smoking pot linked to crash risk?
Even tho Alcohol is present the most in crashes, marijuana is now being said to double the risk of a crash or fatal accident if you driven within 3 hours of smoking. The problem is there are multiple studies that have been released over the years showing the exact opposte of what this study is claiming.
If you take a look at this pargraph from Norml.org "Although cannabis intoxication has been shown to mildly impair psychomotor skills, this impairment does not appear to be severe or long lasting. In driving simulator tests, this impairment is typically manifested by subjects decreasing their driving speed and requiring greater time to respond to emergency situations.Nevertheless, this impairment does not appear to play a significant role in on-road traffic accidents. A 2002 review of seven separate studies involving 7,934 drivers reported, “Crash culpability studies have failed to demonstrate that drivers with cannabinoids in the blood are significantly more likely than drug-free drivers to be culpable in road crashes.”
This result is likely because subject under the influence of marijuana are aware of their impairment and compensate for it accordingly, such as by slowing down and by focusing their attention when they know a response will be required. This reaction is just the opposite of that exhibited by drivers under the influence of alcohol, who tend to drive in a more risky manner proportional to their intoxication." you can clearly see that this study goes against the other, so who's telling the truth?
