i have been driving higher than shit for 10 years, never a wreck, never a ticket, never lost my car in a parking garage, and have only ran over 1 homeless man. (kidding)

driving after eating a potent edible is different... can definitely make you uncontrollably drowsy. but anyone that drives while drowsy (regardless of what caused the drowsiness) is an idiot asking for bad karma.
