420 and Increased Risks for Drivers
It’s April 20th, known among those who use marijuana as 420. According to the myth-busting website Snopes.com, 420 is a reference stemming from a high school in San Rafael, California where students in the 1970s would meet every day at 4:20 to smoke pot. But no matter where the term came from, April 20th has now become a day for pot smokers across the country to hold rallies, get high in public, and call for the legalization of marijuana.
No matter where you stand on the issue of legalization, there is little debate that people who smoke pot and then drive pose a significant risk to others. Driving while high is just as dangerous as driving while drunk and places both the driver and everyone else on the road at serious risk for injury. If you are injured by a stoned driver today or any other day, you have every right to hold them accountable for their actions through a personal injury lawsuit.
