Not sure if it gets 'labeled' a drug; a drug is any substance that alters the human body.
Caffeine is a drug and it is incredibly safe in comparison to other drugs.

And it was criminalized due to political pressure, not due to its inherent danger. First the influx of Mexicans in the 30's who frequently used it, then the hippie culture in the 60's.

Agree that inhalation of burning plant material is not great for lungs.

Im getting more weed impaired driving lately from traffic stops running radar. More people are tending to speed wheras you'd think they would be driving 5 mph. lol

Ive had a few lately running LIDAR and driver was doing 65-70 mph on city street 35 mph zone. Mind is altered and they swear they were doing the speed limit. Also, some of the FST's for weed fall under DAR or drug abuse recognition tests, so they are a little different then the three standard alcohol related tests.
Id also say Ive seen probably about 50% of my weed impaired DUI arrests were combo with consuming alcohol as well.

As for motor-vehicle use, pot contrasts with alky thusly: A drunk will run a stop sign. But a pot smoker will sit there waiting for it to turn green.

It's actually all over the board with both substances. I've had pot impaired drivers run stop signs and I've had alcohol impaired drivers sit there waiting.

In terms of generalizations, does the joke reflect reality?

I get the joke.

But, in my experience, I'd say no.

I would say a drunk will not even notice the stop sign. A pot smoker would see it, go through it and laugh about missing the stop sign (probably still looking back at the stop sign they went through) while feeling amused at how high they are.

Thanks bojangle. The question was genuine, and I appreciate the straight answer.
