Will there be designated drivers for SLO County’s marijuana festival?

The advance notice of the marijuana festival (“Cannabis connoisseurs ready to spark up at SLO County marijuana festival,” July 11) caused some distress when I read it. While not a person who uses it, I wonder about those who will leave the festival having smoked or otherwise imbibed some … will they be safe drivers as they leave the property on which it is located (apparently a private vs. public property)? Will they have “designated drivers” just as those who use alcohol are supposed to have if in fact they can and do indulge?

There are so many unknowns with this new law. We all need to be mindful that things we do have consequences that can affect others in ways that be lifelong and tragic.

Stay safe everyone!
