Drugs a danger on road

My car was struck at an intersection by a young driver who told police he and his friends had been drinking beer and smoking marijuana

I rarely agree with Tom Fletcher’s point of view but this time I do. Marijuana and alcohol do not mix.

My car was struck at an intersection by a young driver who told police he and his friends had been drinking beer and smoking marijuana.

He took his eyes off the road and when he looked back the light had turned red and I was in front of him and he could not stop. He got a 24-hour roadside suspension.

I have since lost my foot due to a combination of stress and diabetes and have lost my home due to an inability to pay the mortgage.

Do not make it easier for people to combine the two.
