New Zealand Fatal Balloon Crash Pilot was on Marijuana at Time of Crash

The tragic hot-air balloon crash on January 9, 2012, in Carterton, New Zealand took the lives of all 11 people on board.  A statement just issued by the Transport Accident Investigation Commission state that toxicology reports reveal that the balloon pilot had cannabis in his system at the time of the crash.

Despite numerous incidents such as this and countless studies that indicate otherwise, marijuana advocates repeatedly assert that marijuana use is harmless.  This tragic event again demonstrates  that drug use in the workplace has devastating consequences.
