In response to coolade2's comment:
Police stopped Bowe for speeding 48mph in a 35 zone.... smelled marijuana. (forgot to report that they noticed he was Black).
Gotta love law enforcement. Pot is legal in 2 states, medicinal in 20 others. And cops ARREST an NFL player for speeding 48 in a 35. Nice work if you can get it.
Not to defend the police, but in this day and age, anything 9 or over the limit, especially at 12 AM, you will get pulled.
States and municipalities are so desperate for revenue, even 9 mph or under will be plucked now for a speeding ticket since they are so desperate.
Also, I am not sure it''s a good idea to drive and smoke weed even if legal. I believe most states now have had laws against that, which will likely remain intact on the books even in Washington State and Colorado. They'll probably continue to consider it like drinking and driving, which I am not sure I disagree with.
They are trying to put these laws into place in Co now. Apparently there is a blowing device that measures THC in nanograms. Counties seem to be divided on whether to adopt the law.
