My friend got high and drove through a red light
My friends and I decided to take a road trip to visit another friend who lived a couple hours out of town. Well, halfway through the road trip, everyone decided to smoke a lot, including the driver. I guess everyone's logic was that we were on the open road so it wouldn't be all that bad. Plus, from what I know, being high while driving doesn't impair your ability all that much anyway. I know many people who do it frequently and nothing has ever happened. When we got closer to to town, you know a place with streets and traffic lights, everyone got heavily invested in one of those ridiculous conversations you can only have under the influence.
My friend in the driver's seat was participating but kept his eyes glued forward, hands at ten and two, and stiff-armed. Sometimes he would get quiet and just focus entirely on the road but, he would jump in and out. Well, when two of my friends were really getting into it, we heard a bunch of horns go off and some tire screeching. We didn't think about it for a couple seconds but, it eventually dawned on us; we ran a fricken' red light. We had to tell the driver for him to even realize it. We made it to our friend's house a couple minutes later safe and sound. But, my question is, do you think it's ok to drive while high?
