Cody Gorecke was drunk and smoking pot the night he killed Amanda, but he refused to admit he used marijuana. One of the others present at the party where our daughter was shot and killed told the police they smoked pot that night, but the prosecutor told us there was no way they could prove it. Gorecke's word against the witness wasn't enough. He tested positive for marijuana, but even that wasn't enough to use in court, because there is no test capable of proving a marijuana user is stoned at a given time. Tests can show the user was under the influence at some point in the past couple of weeks, but not at the time the test was administered.
That's how potheads get by with their claim that marijuana doesn't hurt anyone, that it's never killed anyone. They refuse to acknowledge that accidents caused by impaired drivers are not attributed to marijuana only because it cannot be proven they were stoned at the time of the accident. There's no telling how many fatal accidents, motor vehicle or others, have been caused by someone under the influence of marijuana, because there is no test capable of proving they were impaired at the time.

But here's a case that, in my opinion, proves that marijuana IS capable of harm, even killing innocent people. The father of a 3-month old baby forgot his child was in the car while he went to score some marijuana. Even standing in front of the car smoking his week didn't remind him of this innocent child dying inside the 100+ degree Phoenix heat.
Follow this link, read the article, and try telling me again that marijuana isn't harmful. As for me, this poor little child suffocated in a car-turned-oven by his stoned father.
