Self-serving scoundrels, all of them. We know these scumbags are really protecting their stocks and salaries. They should be ashamed.
Anyone who claims that law enforcement, liquor, beer and wine companies are independent will be ‘hard pressed’ to explain this one. (pun intended.)
Approximately 25 seconds into the above video MADD spokeswoman Rosalind Donald admits ‘they’re getting the people in place to take care of drugged driving’.
What the mass media doesn’t want the public to know is, who “they” are?
“They” are the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility (FAAR) and the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA). Their latest report titled Drunk Driving Fatalities in America, claims that drugged driving is on the rise and drunk driving is decreasing.
Shouldn’t we be happy that drunk driving is decreasing?
“As drunken driving has declined, drugged driving has increased dramatically, and many of today’s impaired drivers are combining two or more substances,” said Ralph S. Blackman, president of the foundation, a nonprofit founded and funded by a group of distillers.
“Over the long term, drunk driving fatalities have been declining at a faster rate than overall traffic fatalities… Among fatally injured drivers with a known test result, drugs were present in 43% of drivers in 2015…” Blackman said.
Doesn’t it seem strange, that a group of powerful liquor companies would claim that drugged driving is increasing?
Mr. Blackman also claims, that during the past decade 2/3 of drunk driving fatalities had a BAC of .15 or higher and …“during this same period, drugged driving increased nearly 55% .proportionally. Among fatally injured drivers with a known test result, drugs were present in 43% of drivers in 2015, up from 28% in 2006.”
What the report doesn’t mention, is what percentage of drugs were in a person’s blood stream or even if drugs were just found on a passenger. Fyi, there are no scientific tests to determine how much marijuana will make a driver impaired.

Twenty two Attorney’s General work with FAAR
No conflict of interest their right?
The only difference between the two is, liquor companies have the justice system and law enforcement working with them!
This is what happens, when the Feds allow corporations to become more powerful than the state.
“The corporation has become more powerful than the state because the state has allowed it to happen. Over decades, by both Democrats and Republicans, unaccountability has become normalized, barely opposed by politicians or the media class.”
Page 30 of a report titled ‘Drug-Impaired Driving’ reveals, that FAAR has spent $80,000 to train cops to become ‘Drug Recognition Experts’ (DRE). DRE’s can allegedly tell what kind of drugs a person is on simply by looking at their pupils! (To find out more about DRE’s click here & here.)
So what’s the truth about drugged driving?
“That’s difficult to say,” replied Jeff Michael, NHTSA’s associate administrator for research and program development. “We don’t have a precise estimate.” The most he was willing to affirm was that the number is “probably not” zero.
In 2015, I warned everyone that the Feds were keeping inaccurate Police drug tests a secret.
