Re: Battle against drug-impaired drivers may get new weapon.

Cheryl Gallant is pulling numbers out of the air, or simply making them up.

She says, "Drug-impaired drivers are involved in an estimated one out 
of every eight fatal collisions on our street..." but there has never 
been a study to prove that.

It may be true, but just because police say something doesn't make it 
true.  In fact, when it comes to marijuana, police seem unable to 
tell the truth.  The first Canadian laws against marijuana were put 
in place in 1923 based on racist lies, and a supposed danger to 
society that never actually existed.

Is Cheryl Gallant the new Emily Murphy? Will she propagandize and 
reiterate outdated and scientifically inaccurate nonsense in an 
effort to stir up fear and fealty in the public?

Oh wait! She already did that!
