Recreational pot is dangerous, too

I agree with the commentary last Friday criticizing the use of recreational marijuana.

The writer’s concerns are employer related. Mine are everyday concerns.

Politicians are usually disconnected from the real world when they pass legislation. On the same Feb. 7 Opinion page, the editorial reports on a driver who killed a woman while he was DUI for the sixth time.

Add pot impairment to alcohol. Is it so far beyond the understanding of elected officials who cannot and have never addressed the serious problem of drunk drivers?

Apparently, state officials have the same mental block as our federal officials: Re-election is all-important.
