DOPE DAZE:

Fatal accidents involving stoned drivers soared in Washington since pot was legalized (Chris Isidore, 5/10/16, CNNMoney)

Fatal crashes involving drivers who recently used marijuana more than doubled in 2014. Pot was involved in 17% of fatal crashes in Washington in 2014, up from 8% in 2013 -- the year before recreational marijuana was allowed there.
"The significant increase in fatal crashes involving marijuana is alarming," said Peter Kissinger, CEO of the foundation, which funds scientifically rigorous studies for the drivers organization. "Washington serves as an eye-opening case study for what other states may experience with road safety after legalizing the drug."

Mothers will nip drug legalization in the bud.
