Suit Simulates What It's Like to Drive While High

A person who's high on cocaine, heroin, or marijuana may not realize how impaired he is. That's why the Ford Motor Company created this suit that simulates the effects. Jalopnik reports that it has goggles that induce tunnel vision, headphones that play distracting noises, vibrators that induce hand tremors, and weights that throw off balance.

The result is that even professional drivers, let alone everyday amateurs, become very dangerous on the road. In this video, Ford placed the suit on two drivers. They found it impossible to perform simple tasks, such as catching a ball, let alone driving a car safely.

NOTE this was tested in England (accents, license plate, etc) They drive on the wrong side of the road to begin with. I have never noted tunnel vision, loss of balance/ coordination, tremors, multiple distractions, etc OR having to catch a ball while driving. What a bunch of irrelevant propaganda. I think the real people who are high on drugs that is clouding their perceptions and rationale is obvious.

Plus, if my friends can mountain bike and play frisbee while high, who are these horribly uncoordinated people who can't even catch a giant inflatable ball?

Complete propoganda. No one who has been around users of drugs would believe this nonsense. The suit is obviously much worse than a hit of marijuana.
