In the race to make big bucks on a "marijuana breathalyzer," retired
Mountie Kal Mahli and "law enforcement agencies" are mistakenly
equating the effects of cannabis use with those of alcohol abuse. A
recent U.S. study found that traffic fatalities declined almost 10 per
cent in states with medical marijuana. Don't take my word, Google it.
One often hears that something "is worth it if even one life is
saved." If it were anything else they'd be aggressively passing
legislation to save lives.

Nine per cent is a lot of lives saved by cannabis.
