Hazy law

While I do understand the reasoning behind legalizing marijuana, I
believe that the public health risks outweigh the legislative
benefits. It can cause impairment of both perception and motor skills.

These factors need to be functional to ensure safe driving. A likely
outcome of legalizing marijuana is that it may lead to greater
incidents of accidents - and possible deaths - due to intoxication. We
are already working towards mitigating deaths due to alcohol, adding
marijuana to the mix poses an additional liability to public safety.
