BILLINGSGATE POST - Now that marijuana is legal in Colorado, new problems have complicated things for the citizens living there. With much discussion concerning how to test drivers for driving too high, the debate was lifted to a higher level by potheads asserting that they drove safer while stoned than the majority of other drivers on the road.
Anyone who has smoked cannibis understands that the cognitive sense which recognizes the perception of speed is diminished according to the elasticity of the euphoric feeling multiplied by the number of fellow stoners hee-hawing at the cars speeding by them on the freeway. A variable to be sure.
Claiming that "speed kills," Colorado stoners are demanding that speed limits in the state be reduced to 30 MPH. State legislators, understanding that "they is us," seem willing to listen to such arguments because it "just makes sense."
