41. It's funny that you have a problem with the smell.
I mean, not really, I don't particularly like hearing country music. That's just preference. As for operating heavy machinery, though, you may be interested to know that a study in Great Britain was done to measure the effects on driving of marijuana and alcohol. One group each smoke a joint, the other each had a single glass of wine, while the control group stayed sober. The group that drank just one glass of wine each showed a remarkably lowered response time than the control group. The ones who smoked pot drove as well, and in some cases better, than the control. I'm not saying everyone should get high and drive around. Most high people require the munchies or having to go to the bathroom to get off the couch, and that's probably for the best. It's just that you shouldn't trust the statistics from U.S. law enforcement because guilt is always given to person who is intoxicated, whether the accident was caused by the other driver or not. Again, I'm not promoting bong hits while driving.
