    I see drivers obviously impaired who are smoking pot, you can smell it if you are behind or beside them. The only thing to do is drop back far enough that you won't be involved in the accident they will cause.

    Based on my years of experience when i smoke it i would say that it depends. it depends on how much they smoke. I recall that If I was sharing a joint with others in the care, it would take more than one for me to get to where I might be impared. It's the same as alcohol, one drink won't make most people impared, but two three or four?

    The point isn't just that he's smoking the stuff - but is being so brazen about it. If he cares so little for the law, what does it say for his obeying traffic laws and consideration for the rights of others?
