If and only if a person gets into an accident. If certain metabolites from a certain plant are also present the same thing happens despite no scientific proof one was intoxicated on cannabis at the time of the accident.
The reality is, a large chunk of the US population is prescribed those very drugs with the warning label you mentioned. Also if one is a long term users of such doctor prescribe drug(s), the argument can be made in court that they have built up a tolerance and are not impaired and can even pay certified doctors to stand trial as an expert witness which takes a lot of money.
Money is what this is all about. The perception of public safety on the road is exactly that.
As I wrote before, the biggest danger on the road today is drivers distracted by their smart phones.
Explain to me in plain English how this would decrease the number of fatal accidents etc by legalizing heavier narcotics?

I have serious issues with this in one respect. Although I support the people's right to use/grow Marijuana based on many medicinal properties.
I am still 100% dead set against the illegal Drug trade of heavier Narcotics.
No, I wouldn't put up with a child being driven to school by a crackhead bus driver.
