As far as vehicular deaths by negligence go... i wont make up statistics, but i promise you that text messaging has killed more people than marijuana.
This kind of stuff is exactly what keeps me from supporting legalization. Smokers want it legal but don't want any responsibility attached to it.
Kill someone while stoned..no big deal
Won't get a job due to drug testing..live off public assistance
and in answer the the prescription drugs..yes they were described. I asked an attorney friend of mine about this and he said that it doesn't matter, if it can be proven that the drugs were a factor in the fatality, the user is criminally negligent
Good luck convicting someone on "legal" perscribed drugs taken "as directed" ; my fathers office was basically destroyed by an older woman who was driving under the influence of multiple perscription narcotics. She was not criminally convicted of anything. If she would have been drunk the story would be completely different.

Killing someone is always a big deal. The push for legalization basically rests on the liberalization of america, of which I agree with 0.0002% of. If they legalized it, not much would change for me, id probably just have to pay taxes on it too.
thanks for proving my point.
Bottom line...Don't drive while impaired!! whether it is Xanax or weed or booze.
