Bigger Picture

Sorry to hear about your terrible accident, but it certainly explains your bias. I won't pretend to defend the driver or question what caused the accident. Personally I never enter an intersection without expecting someone to run the red light. That's what defensive driving is all about. Your story underscores the reason why.

But the bigger picture is not about you or me. It's about the millions of folks who live under the yoke of violent organized criminals who are empowered by the multi-billion dollar a year black market that itself is driven by over 40 million US consumers who one way or another will acquire the recreational substances they prefer but that are stupidly banned by the government for reasons that apparently have nothing to do with health since the alleged cure has been much worse than the alleged disease.
