It’s a good idea to avoid driving after consuming alcohol products. While some people will say that one or two drinks are okay if you’re going to drive, this could vary from person to person. Depending on one person’s alcohol tolerance, their body chemistry, and the potency of their drinks, the legal limit could be met much quicker than one may realize. The last thing you want to do is risk hurting other people or ending up in jail because of a DUI charge. I knew people in college who frequently drove “buzzed,” but one of them ended up with a DUI charge because he failed the breathalyzer test after he was pulled over by the police. And little did my other friend know, but you can also be charged with a DUI if a cop catches you smoking cannabis in your car. Even if you have a medical marijuana card in a state with legal medical marijuana, you can still possibly face a DUI charge if the police officer who catches you wants to make an example out of your mistake. That’s why I steer clear of consuming large doses of THC enriched cannabis products if I know I need to leave the house anytime soon. Otherwise I wait to use cannabis to this degree until I know I’m home for the night permanently. This is essential for staying safe behind the wheel of my car, not just for myself but also every single person who could come into contact with my car if I lost control. It’s a scary thought, but it’s sobering as well.
