Our post about the Colorado State Patrol denying that Keith Kilbey was turned into a stoned-driving poster boy even though he was incredibly drunk in addition to being high riled up a lot of readers. This post exemplifies many others.

That's so funny that when this happened all they mentioned was that he was driving under the influence of marijuana. In the beginning they didn't say much about alcohol at all. Now we hear he was three times the legal limit drunk. Yeah guess they failed to mention the real reason he hit the patrol cars. He could have been stoned 3 times over the legal limit and still probably would not have hit CSP cars. Wake up people: The alcohol is what's bad. Leave the fucking stoners alone! H A T E R S !
