The fact that David Njuguna’s trial is going to turn into a referendum on weed, instead of the fact that he intentionally killed Trooper Clardy, is a slap in the face to the family and the millions of people who voted to legalize marijuana.

Boston.com: A judge won’t dismiss charges against a man accused of driving under the influence of marijuana and causing a crash on the Massachusetts Turnpike that killed a state trooper. In a ruling issued Wednesday, a Worcester judge denied a motion to dismiss several of the charges against 30-year-old David Njuguna, of Webster. Njuguna has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter and related offenses in the March 16 death of 44-year-old Trooper Thomas Clardy. Authorities say Clardy had stopped a car for a traffic violation when his cruiser was hit by Njuguna’s vehicle in Charlton. Witnesses say Njuguna’s car had swerved across all three travel lanes without slowing. Njuguna’s lawyer had argued that several charges are “duplicative” and there was insufficient evidence to support the charge alleging Njuguna had used marijuana.
Yup, this is what we were worried about. Trooper Clardy’s good name is going to be smeared by turning it into a public referendum on weed. Newsflash – David Njuguna didn’t kill Trooper Clardy because he was high. He did it because he’s a cold-blooded murderer. He veered across three lanes of traffic and crashed into the Trooper’s stationary vehicle. He even straightened the wheel at the last minute so that he hit him directly from behind. That’s an act of premeditation. Weed didn’t make him do that. Pure evil did.
How can ANYONE possibly think this was an accident? Let’s just look at this from a statistical standpoint. Do you know what the odds of this are? He was doing a 50 mile commute from Springfield to the 290 exit. That’s over 250,000 feet of pavement. And it just so happened that when his car went into a skid he veered into the 12 feet of highway where Trooper Clardy’s stationary vehicle just happened to be? How is that even remotely plausible? That’s like a needle in a haystack. THAT should be the case right there.
But instead the state is trying to turn this case about weed. Because they’re letting politics get in the way of law and order. They know weed is a hot topic right now because the people of Massachusetts just voted to legalize it, and DA’s like Joe Early are using stories like this for their fear mongering campaign against this harmless plant. It’s a slap in the face to the family and the millions of people who voted to legalize weed.
