Pot Smoking Drivers and Me on a Bike

I’m quite liberal, in the late 19th century meaning of the word, which is pretty much at odds with what liberal means today. So if someone wants to smoke pot, I have no objection, so long as they get off food stamps and welfare first, and get a job to pay for it. Or maybe it’s time that pot took on its full and proper role of SOMA, as in Brave New World—the timing is just about right, with the government issuing a few ounces and a welfare check as control over the masses.

Anyway, I’ve noticed an increasingly disturbing trend: just about every day now I smell marijuana stink emanating from cars while I’m cycling. If people want to be losers that’s fine with me (who the heck needs to smoke pot while driving in the middle of the day except a loser?), but I don’t want potheads driving anywhere, let alone anywhere near me.

So I sure hope the State of California starts treating these SOBs like what they are: risks for death and injury to cyclists in particular, as well as other motorists. Maybe that’s why for the first time in 20 years I saw a sunny-day accident at a T-intersection on my daily ride—just not any reason for that to happen. Stop ’em, cuff ’em, cite them and JAIL THEM just like any other irresponsible DUI driver.

Reader Robin K sends a note on the Weed Spit Test for detecting marijuana. Since many tests for substances or drugs can have unacceptably high false positives, this needs to be dealt with carefully, but a realiable test is a prerequisite for prosecuting DUI pot smokers.
