That statement does not fit the definition of "safety". We are talking
about harm here and pot does not harm.

Where did you get that statistic? How can *you* tell when someone
is high on just marijuana? If you know of a way, then you should tell
the police since they haven't found any way to tell without taking a
person in for a drug test (and they can only do that if there has been
an accident and not just for routine ticket giving).

Pot has been tested in the labortory and it has been confirmed that
there is no level of THC that will cause death.
