Legalized Drugs

You know, every time I start to think, "Well, maybe drugs should be legalized/decriminalized..", somethinng like this happens to drag me back to reality.

The three people killed when the car they were riding in collided head-on with a school bus west of Tucson last month had methamphetamine and other drugs in their systems, autopsy results show.
Driver Raymond P. Kane III, 51, and passengers Barbara Jean Scott, 39, and Jerry A. Carrasco, 30, were each under the influence of methamphetamine at the time of the crash, according to autopsy results released by the Pima County Medical Examiner's Office.
Kane's autopsy revealed that his blood tested positive for amphetamines and marijuana, and his urine also tested positive for cocaine and oxycodone. Carrasco's blood tested positive for amphetamines, marijuana and oxycodone, while Scott's blood tested positive for amphetamines.
The crash occurred just after 6 a.m. Sept. 22 on Ajo Highway near Ryan Airfield.
Video from a nearby Arizona Department of Public Safety radar enforcement van showed Kane's black Saturn, which was headed west on Ajo, veered over the center line and collided with the eastbound Altar Valley School District bus, killing Kane and his passengers instantly.
All three suffered trauma to the head, thorax, abdomen and upper and lower extremities, autopsy results show.
None of the people on the bus, which was transporting special- needs students to Flowing Wells High School, were injured.

Thank God, if they had to hit something with children on board it was a school bus that could withstand the impact and that they only eliminated themselves from the gene pool . I hate to think what would have happened if they had hit something smaller such as a smaller handicap van or one transporting senior citizens.

There's a real time video of the accident floating out on the net somewhere. I've seen it, it's really terrible to watch so I won't post it or the link here.
