A grim day for Michigan cyclists as recreational pot passes. There may be an upside though…

November 2018

Michigan voters approved legalizing recreational weed in Tuesday’s election. Scary news for Michigan’s cyclists.

It’s not all doom and gloom, though…

At least cyclists will be faster than the stoned drivers.

If you have no idea what I’m referring to, you’ve never driven stoned.  Yes, I have.  Long, long ago, in galaxy far, far away.  Oh, and if you believe you drive better when you’re stoned, that would be because you’re dumb as a rock.  I mean that, too.  You’re literally a nincompoop.

Interesting thought;  Now that dope is legal, will getting stoned still make you paranoid?  I intend on going to the grave not knowing the answer, but it makes for a funny question.

    I’d love to know what happens – do people (like me) who wouldn’t touch it while it’s illegal decide to give it a try – but then does it lose some of it’s mystique and appeal? No doubt there are still ‘driving under the influence’ limits that apply to drugs in the same way as alcohol – but are they enforced well enough and are the limits sensible?

    It doesn’t lose mystic and appeal. It does increase DUI’s and accidents and the number people we are now treating for cannabis use disorders. As Colorado has now seen (the data is there). Be careful out there on your bikes. People would rather believe a myth to justify use than facts. I have deal with that battle almost daily.

    We’ve only just made driving under the influence of drugs illegal here in Ireland; before that it was really all about drink. The new drink penalties are stiffer now as well. As long as folks stay at home and get stoned and don’t decide to drive down to the shops when they get the munchies, we should be okay…
    And yes, anyone who thinks they drive better stoned is an idiot, and no, you will still get paranoia from smoking too much pot. What too much is I will leave to others to hash out. Aha! See what I did there!
    (Personally, I did a lot of drugs in the sixites. Mostly Calpol).

      Too much? No such thing. There is “just enough”. Thank God I was too chicken to try heroin! I’d have od’ed inside of twenty minutes.

      • unironedman says:

        I agree, but as long as they have made it legal, then all we can hope is that the stoners stay off the road… The recreation word is an interesting one, of course. Some folks smoke gear like I drink tea, and reckon that’s cool. I don’t. If you said you couldn’t really function without a beer for breakfast, then most normal folks would say you had a problem. Some of these regular tokers smoke every day. That’s not recreation. That’s habit. And it’s bad for your physical and mental health, and dangerous for others around you.

        You’re absolutely right, brother. That post is tomorrow. Chuckle.

  4. For once, I am happy that this means more people from Illinois will be motivated to move to another state.

    It looks like more and more states will be hopping on the bandwagon. Scary thought.

  6. Dang, seems your knowledge on cannabis is lacking in many ways. Thats sad, as its a great product that can drastically improve your recovery and mind state if used in correct manners. Also, driving while stoned to people who have never done it may seem like a big deal but its nothing even close to alcohol. If people driving 20MPH in a 30 zone is your biggest worry, I think youll be alright.

    • bgddyjim says:

      Yeah, you’ll have to shovel that horse crap elsewhere. I don’t use drugs in correct manners. I’m a recovering addict and alcoholic. Using drugs and alcohol to excess is kind of what we do. It doesn’t matter if it’s Nyquil, we abuse it. Weed can’t do anything for recovery but ruin it.

      I wonder, what is the correct manner of getting high?

      And driving while drunk is not worse than driving stoned. You may need to lay off the doobage yourself!
