Two journalists take driving test while high


39-percent of likely voters say they will approve the proposition, while 51-percent oppose it. Now critics say if it does pass it would make our state's roads even more dangerous.

The California Highway Patrol held an experiment with two Los Angeles area journalists over the weekend. The two journalists smoked pot before driving through an obstacle course. Both noticed their speed slowed significantly.

Radio Talk Show Host Peter Tilden didn't realize the impact on his driving until after seeing his results. "It was shocking to me, my son got a big lesson that night about do not get in the car with somebody who says they're high."

Prop 19's backers insist legalizing pot for personal use won't make California roads any less safe. They say the current laws against D.U.I. won't change if the measure passes.
