I have a rule when it comes to alcohol and driving.
I won’t ever go past the point of more than two drinks or two shots if I know I’ll be getting behind the wheel of a car before it has been two or three hours after I finish drinking.
Otherwise I could risk a DUI or putting others at risk, let alone myself. Too many of my friends didn’t follow this sort of protocol with their own drinking habits; sometimes I would unwittingly get in a car with someone who had a few drinks prior to driving. I feel somewhat lucky and grateful that we never got in a wreck during any of those fateful evenings. But alcohol is not the only substance you should avoid behind the wheel of a moving vehicle. For some reason, there are a large number of cannabis users who feel the need to take large dabs from portable dabbing rigs while they’re driving down the road. I don’t think they realize what it’s going to look like if they’re ever pulled over and busted with the dabbing rig that has a dose of cannabis concentrate inside. I always use my weed products before I leave my house so I don’t have a craving to get high before I’m able to get back home for the evening. Aside from the sheer cost of fighting a DUI in court, I don’t want to ever risk losing my medical marijuana card just because I was being impatient and couldn’t wait until I got back home before giving myself another dose of THC products.
