Letter to the editor: Legalized pot will cost Pa.
The February 2019 issue of the AAA Motorist newsletter had a great article titled “Driving while high can double your risk of a crash.” States that have legalized marijuana are experiencing many more fatal crashes. It is a proven fact that marijuana affects balance, coordination and judgment, thus impairing a person’s ability to safely operate a vehicle.
Now both our governor and lieutenant governor want to legalize marijuana. In their quest for more revenue, they are turning a blind eye to how this will create a multitude of needless unsafe conditions, costing the taxpayers more money and lives. Where are their priorities and what do the state police think about this?
