Do What?? You must be joking!! Don't you know that it is so much easier and refreshing to just freeform rant without a clue.

I would guess that this explains much of it. The relationship between marijuana intoxication (alone) and accident risk is far more complicated than for alcohol and accident risk. Interesting NIH article that pulls together data from a lot of other studies: THE EFFECT OF CANNABIS COMPARED WITH ALCOHOL ON DRIVING

One interesting thing about marijuana impairment seems to be that consciousness of the impairment is retained, i.e. people who are stoned are (correctly, or even excessively) underconfident, whereas people who are drunk are (incorrectly) overconfident.

Wouldn't personally suggest consuming either before driving or riding, but from a public policy standpoint it's interesting to look at the evidence.

i remember a paper being published about the effects of cannabis, it was about 40 pages and the final conclusion was; if you smoke enough weed you get high

common sense just aint that common anymore

and cycling high is one hell of a workout (at least, thats what it feels like ) cant be bothered to run red lights n ****

On the other hand, from a BF ranter's viewpoint it is more interesting to ignore the evidence.
