How many people have gone to a fast food restaurant, pulled out of
it after eating and had an accident? I have seen quite a few. By your
logic, that is proof that driving to and from fast food restaurants can
cause accidents...not! What makes you really think that person had
an accident because they were on pot and not some other reason?
The fact that only one person has had this problem only indicates that
it is one person's problem and not every pot smoker's problem.

Your country doesn't have bookstores? Or don't you want to
get out of bed and find one? Hehehe
