Reader: Behind-the-scenes footage shows real story behind THC driving report

This week, we published a William Breathes post about marijuana advocate Max Montrose, who thinks a Fox31 story on driving under the influence of THC was rigged -- a claim the station refuted at length in our update of the piece. Nonetheless, many of our readers weren't convinced. Like, for instance, this one.

After viewing the tape made by Max, it is refreshing to see what REALLY happens during these news stories and what is actually reported.... The two 'versions' really are not even close to each other.... Fox made some 'un-biased' statements, but I hope you are not suggesting that because they had to 'appear' neutral at some point, this excuses them from reporting accurately.... I'm not saying they are necessarily LYING. They are just choosing what they wish to report on.... Lots of organizations do this.... Like the government.... Trust.

NORML -- the lobbyists for Marijuana McLawyers -- supports the 5 ng/ml DUI-m limit as being impaired.

Washington adopted -- by the Will of the Voters -- a 5 ng/ml standard in their I-502 "legalization" initiative.

Colorado will soon adopt the same standard -- guaranteeing a never ending supply $$ to the Marijuana McLawyers from the thousands of patients/stoners who will exceed this puny limit every time they get behind the wheel of their car.

Regulation Works !

The report did clearly show that the 5 nanogram limit was nonsensical. However, they also went out of their way to drive home the point that "you shouldn't drive after having pot" (or something close to that.) Their test did not come to that conclusion. Of course you can get stoned enough to get into an accident--they pretend that limit is any at all, and the comments the anchors make after both stories try to reinforce the idea. It's a matter of showing you one thing, and repeatedly telling you a contradicting thing, which is actually a brainwashing technique.

@DonkeyHotay What if they dont enact the same standards as it has failed in the past.  Jumping to conclusions troll
