Letter: ‘Recreational’ marijuana poses more risks

Published 12:00 am Sunday, June 24, 2018

Do you want a taxicab driver who is high on marijuana driving your cab?

How about a surgeon operating on you who is high? Or maybe a dentist?

Perhaps a lawyer litigating your case in front of a judge who is high? Maybe allow it for police?

But it’s OKin a couple of states (and more and more) for people to use marijuana “recreationally.” And drive.

Well, move to Canada or California. We have dozens of automobile deaths every day from people texting while driving. Why not add marijuana to it?
