Drug driving

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
just thought about this, after reading a drink driving topic on this site....

i've never really done it, but whats ur opinions/experiences/tips on driving on drugs?

i assume it's illegal. but can they do tests? surely it's obvious if ur wide-eyed and chewing, or distracted or whatever. but what can they do about it?

    well you shouldnt. your judgement will almost certainly be impaired. i would imagine you could be done for reckless driving, or driving without due care and attention. i dont know if theres a conviction for driving under the influence of those drugs, i could find out for you if you wanna know that badly.

    well i've spoken 2 manny police when i have been driving on drugs and they don't have a clue.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    it would be treated worse than drunk driving. you would no doubt do time. however PC plod would have to be able to prove you were under the influance at the time of driving, and I dont think this is possible to do scientificaly but sobrity tests are coming over from across the water.
    driving on lsd is just stupid.

    with any luck you'll die on that little lot as well <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    why not cut spending on drugs and get ur arse on a rowing machine, burn off some excess calories.

    Just ignore fat_mike, he clearly dont have a clue and I personally think he bullshits anyway. He is looking for the kind of responses we r giving him so dont give him what he wants and maybe he will go away, like a bad smell! Not being funny or anything but Ive seen a few people drive on drugs but never LSD and, I may be wrong, but in my experience that would be vertually impossible to do.

    U can get done for drinking under the influence of drugs but like someone said before they have to first proove u r infact on drugs. Apparently they do (or were gonna bring into action) road side drug tests...Im sure I read that somewhere.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    so if they dont have roadside tests at the mo. then i assume they'd have to get a urine sample off u.

    and to do that they'd have to arrest you

    which means they'd have to be pretty sure in the first place.

    am i right so far?

    so are there any good ways to disguise ur state??

    Nah i personally think this is a pretty serious post.. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.contrabandent.com/pez/otn/shocked/pain8.gif"&gt;

    Think about it rite, its got to be just as serious as drink drivin.. weed.. hmm, well maybe that just makes you chilled but anything that makes you hyper.. its got to be dangerous rite?

    Im not a drug taker msyelf so dont really have a clue.. but i duno.. if some kid gets filled from a pillin driver and they cant even proove it... seems a little 'unfair' to say the least? Lxxx

    i am telling the truth, i had an argument with my friends mum the other day about driving on mdma and i think i can drive loads better then i usually do and she was say that its aload of rubish, but i saw a tv prog the other day which said people who take mdma think they can drive loads better when infact they can't and it scared the crap out of me and i don't do it anymore. about the driving on lsd shit, i'm not talking full on acid trip, just mild acid.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    One of my friends drove into Manchester last week absolutly fucked off her head on acid. Her boyfriend was in the car with her, but he was on acid as well.

    I couldn't believe that she'd done it because she never usually drives on drugs, or even the day after.

    Why don't you close your eyes and re-invent me?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    NO- driving while stoned is not good - you get far too paranoid and drive so slowly. and stop every time a car comes near you. it's not good for the heart either!!


  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    In my experience:

    MDMA - Mkes you think you can drive alright but you can't. MDMA affects your vision in a number of different ways and is definately not good to drive on

    Puff - If your paranoid don't drive coz it'll make you over cautious. If your just mildly stoned it's no different in my opinion.

    LSD & shrooms - My mates driven on LSD driving and after about 10 mins he pulled over and refused to go any further.

    Poppers - Stupid coz u lose your balance and direction easily.

    Alcohol - In my experience the worst along with any type of hallucinogenic drug. Alcohol is a drug that induces confidence when in actual fact your are going to be the worst driver in the world.

    Coke - Never driven on coke but there was a recent survey done a group commisioned by the police into drug driving. There was an article in Fast Car and Mixmag about it. These people had to do some kind of driving test and then do it again under the influence of something. Most of the drugs that I've mentioned were tested and all came out worst except coke and hash. With hash there wasn't much difference at all. The suprising thing was that the driver coked up was better then when he was straight in every area.

    I quite often drive while stoned ,or pilled up when I drive back from a club/rave. I never drink drive or drive while absolutley wrecked on anything. Recently I've found myself sleeping in my car a lot after raving coz I feel better and less paranoid driving sober.

    I dont think its surprising at all what u said about coke. Its a fact that when u do coke or base (speed) u concentrate on things much more. U put everything into what u r doing. Thats how u end up "on one" (my description for when u r twatted and get really into DIY or decorating etc etc lmfao <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif">). And u expect to look at what u have done the next day and it all be shit but its better than it would have been if u were normal lmfao. Thats definatly one of the good things about amphetamines...me looooovvvveeee them tee hee <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    I try to avoid it... hell.. I try to avoid being anywhere near my parents when I am mashed.. but sometimes you have to get from place A to place B and although I dont drive on drugs usually(legal or illegal doesnt matter), I can not confidentelly say that I ll never do it.

    Basically the effects are the same as if you were drunk.. you think you are doing this soooo well, but your reaction speed would make a snail yawn.

    I can remember the article Skive is going on about, I don't drive myself yet but can comment on being in the car with people.

    I've been in cars with people on acid and I can remember him telling me about how the winscreen was waving and all the road lights fuzzed in different colours, he also thought the wipers were going back and foward.. doesn't sound safe to me... I don't find people stoned driving too bad, not unless of course they are stupidly battered and then thats another thing, the last time I was in a car with someone pilled up they kept looking at me smiling and gurning, not really paying a great deal of attention to the road and as for speed well... the guy was obviously in a hurry but seemed to pay quite good attention to the road...

    The police are testing some drug testing head strips at the moment, they place a strip over your head and it detects whether or not you are on drugs, at current as these things are in testing phase the police are unable to arrest you, however obviously they will search your car and find an excuse to screw you if they find your under the influence (best check those tire pressures)
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Thing about these sweat tests that JC mentioned is they can't detect how long ago youtook the drug. Cannabis stays in your system for up to a month. That means that I could have a wicked smoke today and in a months time get done for being stoned while driving even though I'm blantently not impaired.

    If they pass there test phase and the police are able to arrest you from the result it'll be a nightmare to pot smokers who drive.

    Unfortunatelly it is a lot worse.. if you are a regular user it can be detected for about 14 weeks. (So if you used to smoke pretty much every day and then stop.. you still get done for driving on drugs three months after)

    If they start using the tests like that I ll be a pedestrian for the next 500 years..
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Apparently the reason you cant get done for smoking whilst under the influence of pot is coz there is not a set amount/level that makes u an unsafe driver, where as alchohol is measured in mg. there is not such a scale for pot.
    They can still do you for driving whilst under the influence, just it is a lot harder for them to do so.

    Drug driving carries the same penalties as if you drink and drive. However they have to prove it . Not as easy as with beer, urine or blood sample needed. Also would need to test for different drugs, the test for pot would need to be specificly looking for it, same goes for coke or pills. time and money will prohibit this unless pc is abs. certain. I think this will go for the head strip thing, keep hearing bout this, very dubios it will work due to complication of testing for many drugs.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    You can get done for drug driving up here (in Taydside). A bloke I went to college was done for it. There were also things in the local papers about new tests police were to carry out if they suspected someone was on drugs. They have to walk in a straight line or close their eyes, tilt head back and touch their nose, and theres another, which I cant remember but is equally as silly as the other two. If you cant do it, youve to provide a sample.

    This all came about after a drink/drug driving survey all over Scotland in which over a third of people aged 18-30 admitted to driving under the influence.

    I personally find that driving while too stoned makes you too paranoid, you drive at about 20 miles an hour and think every cars the police. But hey, maybe thats just me....
