Masslive: After news Wednesday that the driver in the crash that killed Trooper Thomas Clardy was allegedly under the influence of medical marijuana, the head of the Commonwealth Dispensary Association issued a statement condemning those who drive while impaired.
“The Commonwealth Dispensary Association’s strongly held belief is that no one should be behind the wheel while impaired – whether it be by alcohol, pharmaceuticals, medicinal cannabis or illicit drugs,” wrote Executive Director Kevin B. Gilnack in a statement issued late Wednesday.
David Njuguna, 30, of Webster, allegedly visited a medical marijuana dispensary and bought three marijuana cigarettes an hour before the crash on March 16 that killed Clardy. Prosecutors said during Njuguna’s arraignment on manslaughter charges Wednesday that an entire marijuana cigarette was missing and another was found half smoked in Njuguna’s car after the crash.
Reacting to the news that Njuguna may have smoked medical marijuana before the crash, Gov. Charlie Baker also issued a statement Wednesday reiterating his concerns about legalizing the substance for recreational use.
“Governor Baker has serious concerns about the negative effects associated with the proliferation of marijuana use as evidence shows that legalization leads to harm, especially among young people, and hopes the person responsible for this tragic incident is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” Baker press secretary Lizzy Guyton said in an emailed statement.
“Along with a bipartisan group of public officials, the governor is working hard to oppose the legalization of marijuana that would lead to expanded use as the Commonwealth fights the deadly opioid and heroin epidemic,” she said.
Well that sucks. What a moron, making pot look bad for the rest of us. As soon as I saw that it was reported that he was high I KNEW Charlie Baker was gonna chime in and make this political. We like Charlie Baker on a lot of things, but this isn’t one of them. He is the definition of a square. Honestly, it’s 2016. Anyone who cares about weed anymore is a moron.
The more I think about it, the more I realize how low this is. A State Trooper and father of seven was killed and Charlie Baker sees it as an opportunity to push his bullshit agenda, knowing full well that outlawing weed would not have stopped this from happening. It’s a senseless tragedy, and it’s all the fault of this dooshnozzle:
But guess what? When you’re high, you don’t drive 81 mph. You drive 50. And you certainly don’t careen across three lanes of traffic, and then straighten your car out in the break down lane and aim directly at the parked state trooper. How can you not think this was intentional?
And Charlie Baker is using this tragedy to score political points. Guess what Charlie? People are gonna get high. That’s just the way of life. Normal, productive, contributing members of society smoke pot on a daily basis. If you use it safely and responsibly and you don’t drive while impaired, then what’s the harm?
Charlie Baker is a fairly strong supporter of the second amendment, which makes him an even bigger hypocrite. He thinks people should be allowed to buy guns because responsible gun owners shouldn’t have their freedoms taken away because some people abuse guns. But he thinks pot should be banned for responsible pot smokers because some nudniks make stupid decisions while high. Yea, that makes sense.
Oh yea, and by this logic we should also ban booze, or anything that could impair your judgement behind the wheel of a car. After all, we have to assume that legalizing something means people are gonna consume it and automatically get behind the wheel of a car and slam into a parked car on the side of the highway. This is what Charlie Baker thinks people are dumb enough to believe.
And please, spare me the whole “gateway drug” bullshit. Ya know what the ultimate gateway drug is? Booze. At least 90% of people who are addicted to cigarettes (which actually kill you, unlike pot) started when they were drinking. That’s how it always starts. Then you smoke a little pot and most normal people stop there. But people who get addicted to opiates and heroin started by raiding their parents medicine cabinet, not by smoking blunts.
If we banned booze then pregnancies would be cut in half, ugly people would never get laid, and there would be no DUI’s. We should do that. Oh wait, we already tried banning booze and people kept drinking and doing all of those things anyway. At the end of the day it just made criminals rich. Because ultimately the thing that makes us American is the fact that we crave freedom. We LOVE the fact that we are responsible for our own destinies and we hate when the government treats us like children. The same standard for booze should be the standard for pot. Don’t drink and drive. Don’t smoke and drive.
