In my experience, that's is an incorrect assertion.

I don't want to sound rude, but you make an awful lot of sweeping statistical
statements concerning the nature and effects of pot, with no seeming
basis to them. I refuse to believe that in the history of motoring, there
has *never* been an accident involving a death where a drugged driver
was the cause.

This is what we've been talking about. Unless you can give me conclusive
proof that there is *no* harmful effects of pot, then I cannot believe
that. Unfortunately, you claim that there have been no studys into the
long term effects, and the carcinogenic implications, so how can you
possibly know?
