News, That You Already Knew, Of The Day

Now that Canada and China have struck a deal for all of the oil that the environmentalist wackos were determined that we wouldn’t get, what will our neighbors to the north do with all of that extra income? Well, here’s a hint. They’ll most likely continue to spend it on ridiculous studies to find out stuff that an eight year old could figure out on their own if provided with the pertinent facts.

According to researchers at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, it’s best if you don’t smoke pot before operating a motor vehicle. You heard it here first. You’re more likely to crash if you’ve sparked a j, than if you’re stone cold sober.

Drinking and driving is never a good idea, and neither is smoking pot and driving, a study finds. People who smoke marijuana within a few hours of getting behind the wheel may be almost twice as likely to cause an accident compared with those who are sober.

A review of nine studies on pot smoking and car crashes was done by researchers from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Canada. The authors wrote that previous studies have been somewhat inconclusive about marijuana’s effect on automobile collisions, some showing it linked with a higher risk of crashes, and some showing a lower risk.

At first their top notch research was inconclusive. But after nine studies they finally determined that, yes indeed, smoking pot is detrimental to driving a car safely.

Aren’t you glad Obama blocked Keystone so that the Canadians will have plenty of money for important projects like this one?
