  1. Someone needs to tell this dumb twat that if she gets into a major vehicle collision she could end up with a ton of very ugly scars all over her face. Maybe that will make her think twice about not driving when she is stoned. Cause only if it will affect her, will she think about the harm she might cause. So glad this selfish dumb twat was caught and charged.
