Like most of you guys, I got my copy of Parachutist yesterday and went pretty straight to the incident reports. I still can’t really believe what I’m reading.
If you haven’t gotten your copy yet, toxicology reports on both (unrelated) fatalities in October’s incident reports indicated recent marijuana use — i.e., within hours of jumping — that most likely contributed to their deaths.
I’m naïve about drugs. Not that I have never or will never done them — and I don’t much care what other people do or don’t do — but it never occurs to me that people jump drunk or high or anything. I guess I think of drugs and booze squarely in the weather-hold or done-jumping time slots. So I’m curious — have you jumped under the influence?
This poll is completely anonymous, and you can leave anonymous comments as well.
I’m not condemning these jumpers and I don’t want to start any hate campaigns. We’re all grown ass adults making our own decisions, and these guys certainly fall under at least the age requirement for that.
Anyone else in as much shock as me, or am I the only stupidly ignorant one out there?
