TKC MUST SEE!!! KCPD CONFRONT PUSH BACK ON UPCOMING 4/20 CRACKDOWN!!!
It's fair warning but mostly propaganda, hype and filler for local newscasts . . .
Today police reminded locals that they'll be on the lookout for stoners behind the wheel with this stat taken right out of the 1936 classic "Reefer Madness" . . .
@kcpolice: "In 35.4% of fatal MO crashes in 2017, the driver tested positive for at least one drug. We'll be out in force on 4/20. Drive high, get a DUI. #impaireddriving"
The discussion has been both inspiring and entertaining . . .
"Nicotine is a drug... Legal medications test positive for drugs.. this is quite a broad statement. But it implies they we're all positive for thc which is not an indication of intoxication so..."
KCPD reply . . . "Drug here = any substance that can cause mental impairment, from sleep meds to THC to meth"
The retort . . .
"Nicotine gives me buzz. That could be considered mental impairment. If I smoke weed 29 days ago am I still impaired from it? I take aderrall prescribed by my dr which tests positive for meth, so I shouldn't drive?"
Counterargument . . .
"In other news 35.4% of drivers that were not involved in accidents had drugs in their systems."
Stat game . . .
"The 35.4% was not weed!! And if it was it was with other drugs, fake news"
Tragic conclusion . . .
"If I feel better I drive better and I definitely feel better when I'm drunk."
And so given recent statements from the Jackson County Prosecutor that weed possession won't be prosecuted . . .
KCPD NOW CONFRONT THE TASK OF ARGUING THE LAW WITH STONERS!!!
It seems like soul crushing work and so we thank the po-po for protecting our local streets from so many dangerous drivers as this media-imagined "holiday" always sparks illuminating conversations revealing that just about everybody is high on something.
You decide . . .
