Re: legalizing marijuana.

Data from the auto club (AAA) show that the percentage of drivers in fatal crashes who recently used marijuana more than doubled in the state of Washington after the legalization of the drug.

This means that one-sixth of Washington drivers involved in fatal crashes tested positive.

Frankly, why one would encourage the non-medical use of this drug puzzles me in the light of the above facts.

I advocate voting “no” on Question 1.
