On Saturday night, hours before authorities say 20-year-old Kayla Mendoza pulled her Hyundai Sonata onto the Sawgrass Expressway going the wrong way and crashed into a 2012 Toyota Camry, killing the two passengers inside, she tweeted "2 drunk 2 care," her Twitter feed shows.

Mendoza, of Hallandale Beach, who calls herself a "pothead princess" on Twitter and has slightly altered the spelling of her name on the social media site, has dispatched scores of tweets detailing what appears to be chronic marijuana and alcohol abuse -- some of which even occurs inside her car.

Florida Highway Patrol says the wrong-way driver hit the Toyota just after 1:45 a.m. Marisa Catronio was pronounced dead at the scene. Her passenger, Kaitlyn Ferrante, was taken to Broward Health North, where she later died. Mendoza was also transported there and is in serious condition.

"The vehicle came upon a Toyota Camry, struck the Toyota Camry head-on, and the passenger of the Toyota Camry was pronounced dead at the scene," Sgt. Mark Wysocky told NBC 6.

But Mendoza has more than tweeted about her drug abuse; she's also uploaded pictures.

Looks like an anti-marihuana campaign. Even though she was drunk the media must make sure to demonize marihuana. That's because the central banksters do not want the United States to become independently sovereign and debt free by federally legalizing marihuana creating huge industry boom with endless jobs for everyone free from dis-ease, pain and stress.

she will not only be in trouble for  vehicular manslaughter, she will also be in trouble for possession of drugs...and notice how hostile pro- pot people get when potheads do wrong. Mendoza *did* claim to be the pothead princess

That I'm adorable and can get anything I want attitude of hers will not fly in the courts. She'll do at least 20 years in a 5x8 foot prison cell with a 300 pound cellmate, that should wipe that smurck off her face...

I hope LAWQUANDA and SHENIQUA gives this young lady the warm welcome she deserves, when she hits that Florida State Prison system.  Florida prisons are tough.....

Who really cares what she was on or doing??  Isn't the point that she caused and accident that took the lives of two beautiful innocent women??  One of them who I happen to know very well and was a bright amazing person who had an amazing future ahead of her and now she's left her parent's and two brothers behind and they are destroyed by her death and all because this girl decided to be a moron and drive while under the influence of something.  When she finally comes to and realizes that she has taken the lives of two people and lost her legs in the process I hope she never fully recovers the from the agony because I know our family won't.  We have lost an amazing part of it and there will be a void forever more where she stood.  We loved her very much and will miss her greatly!

Why is everyone arguing about weed? The girl was drunk...on alcohol.   All the people screaming that pot is a drug and should remain a "controlled substance", why are you not on your soap boxes calling for prohibition???   Marijuana is as much to blame for this tragedy as Obama Care does. ( Yeah, I went there ;)

@jacquiestafford They said that she was drunk....in the beginning. They were just saying that she has a history of substance abuse. But yeah I agree with lacrecia19962001, they're both equally as terrible. Either way, two people are dead and apparently the one still alive has lost the use of her legs. There are people dying all over the world from fighting in the war, starvation, illness, and so much more, so why are people still dying like this? Am I the only one that feels that dying from something as preventable as this, taking other people's lives along with you, is actually kind of ridiculous? Over 5 people in my class alone died from driving under the influence. Those girls went to my old high school. I didn't know them. But they must have had so many dreams and loved ones, so much to live for. My condolences to all those affected; I'm so sorry. I really hope that they rest in peace and happiness. I just wish that people would wake up and realize how easily everything you care for can be taken away.

@e.murphy126 I think they should ban alcohol also and just because she was drunk does not also mean the weed was not part of the reason she was on the wrong side of the road both are just as bad as the other and bragging about it young people need to know that these post are upheld in court as an admittance of guilt and should learn to stop being so bold and telling all on social sites they need to learn some self respect and what privacy is and stop putting all their business out there for the world to see it

@shanajuly @anon124  So why isn't alcohol illegal?  It's illegal to drink and drive as it should be illegal to drive high.  Millions of people drink and aren't alcoholics.  They drink a beer or a glass of wine--maybe even occasionally get a little toasty, but they don't do it irresponsibly.  I think the same is true of pot.  The same is true for guns.  We can't make everything completely illegal just because some people don't know how to life life without screwing it up for everyone else.  We need sensible laws--consequences for irresponsible behavior.

And you should take a class on grammar. Pot and alcohol are not "equally bad." What planet do you live on? How many deaths per year are caused by alcohol vs. marijuana??

@candtce @e.murphy126 Then while at it. Let's rally & demand ban on cellphone use while driving, porn. ,fastfoods, maybe Whole foods for expensive. Many bad drivers in SFL drive as crazy as the woman above without the influence of drugs,etc.  & why do I know, I almost got hit yesterday while walking within pedestrian signals. I love drinking wine but not crazy to risk my life or others. I think they should invent a device that detects alcohol consumption when attempting to drive a car, I think it does exist, its expensive. We need Obamacare to cover the cost, just a thought.

@candtce There's no point in banning it. Banning it leads to trading it in the black market. It'll become a "luxury" and will probably just be all the more sought after by many people. It already happened when America's government tried to ban it before. This is one of those things that we just have to educate people on their effects, and hope that people stop making whatever excuses that they do to excessively drink alcohol and do drugs, and realize just how destructive their habits are not only to them, but the rest of the world. Oh, and let's hope that they care.

@candtce @e.murphy126 I agree and I want to take this time to talk about another dangerous substance called dihydrogen monoxide. It contributes to the greenhouse effect, may cause severe burns, is fatal if inhaled, contributes to the erosion of natural landscapes, accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals, may cause electrical failures and has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients. Please help me spread the word on this horrible substance, we must stop all production, distribution and consumption of dihydrogen monoxide before it destroys our society.

@candtce @e.murphy126 Great, let's just nerf the world.

I am curious, why would you advocate that people should keep their business private when in the same comment you also believe we should restrict the choices of other people, essentially getting in their business? Isn't that a contradiction? Reason much?

@pippylongsausage my grammar is just fine I have spell check and other resources I was writing a brief  statement not entering a writing contest haha and I make A's in college what do you make and as I said the statistics are not correct because no one gets tested for drugs if they have alcohol in their system we automatically assume and notice the word ass u me that it was the alcohol that was the source. Do your research! As far as you thinking I should never reproduce and that I should kill myself just shows your intelligence level on a scale of 1-10 is a zero moron.

@candtce Take a chillpill. I was just saying many others things should be ban. Other things are just as bad. I guess you didn't get my drift nor does the Gov. LOL..... Happy Holidays & stay safe.

Most states do ban. Cell phone use while driving maybe not your state but a lot have passed that law already as well as texting and driving, and what does porn have to do with it keep your porn to yourself I do not need to know what you do personally this is exactly what I mean I do not care what your personal preferences are if you want to watch porn and do drugs do it not my business, but do not impose it on me and do not drive while doing either one when driving you should keep all eyes on the road and while we are mentioning it ladies put your makeup on when you get to work or before you leave the house.

candtce

They are educated they say the drugs do not impair their driving obviously you have never asked anyone what they think about the two subjects people who do both or one or the other I used to bartend and I took keys and called cabs or had a sober person drive patrons home so they would not kill anyone, and a lot of them did both drugs and alcohol I would not serve them if they came in already intoxicated or high on something but no one looks at that they just serve them anyway well in Texas don't do that because if they leave your establishment that way not only are you responsible so is the owner and you both can be sued or face charges of negligent homicide

candtce
candtce

Yeah right I have been educating people for years it is funny how many people who drink and drive know it is against the law and how many people who say that when they do drugs they drive better how funny is that they are so stupid they actually do not think drugs impair their driving it makes me calmer they do not understand the reflexes are the problem being more relaxed impairs your reaction time but to hear them tell it they do not have a problem and the problem is most of them are not only drinking and driving but doing both like this woman but they only do a sobriety test not a drug test when a wreck happens, not justifiable if you ask me I think anyone who causes any wreck should be drug tested on the spot as well as blood alcohol levels just my opinion if we cannot ban them then start taking more responsible action and get the proper statistics stop turning a blind eye, I used to bartender and many times I would not serve someone if they came in drunk and ordered a drink and then made someone drive them home so they would not kill someone and I also knew they were high other than alcohol I acted responsibly and did not turn a blind eye everyone needs to do that but they don't and it is a bartenders job not to serve them more and to look for signs of drug use also before letting them leave the bar take their keys and call them a cab it works I know because I have done it

Oh yeah, our generation is the crazy one! right? whats this i hear about politicians being shot left and right during the last generation? what about  the slaughtering of innocent protesters during the 1960 generation???? hmmm but id say drunk driving on the wrong side of the road is an admission to guilt that we truly are the worst generation

No one is blaming alcohol. People are blaming the person responsible for drinking and driving. You can drink but dont be a moron And drive.

No one said restrict their choices but if you think alcohol is a problem then ban it or legalize drugs I really do not care but if you know something is illegal don't do it and then brag about it all over the internet and if you do then expect it to be used against you as an admission of guilt that was my point get a clue I do not think they should legalize drugs but in the same respect if everyone is going to blame alcohol for killing people then ban it since the prohibition they have seen the effects alcohol has on society then ban it or go ahead and legalize the stupid drugs so they can gain from the revenue and taxes from the sales like they do alcohol and then problem solved they can start doing drug testing to add those statistics to the reasons for driving under the influence of drugs as opposed to alcohol and then we will have a more accurate statistical reasoning behind drinking and driving we can see which one causes the most deaths because right now those statistics are not accurate in my opinion

candtce
candtce

Not at all it is merely an observation, I really do not care if they post their business just making a point that no one really wants to know their business that should be shared with friends and family they should learn how to use the privacy settings in my OPINION it is just that my opinion of which I am entitled to

@orionsune I think you get the drift, people nowadays  even tweet or facebook a murder as well like we need the insane drama. Some go as far as to saying I'm taking a shit, like thats much news for us.  Isn't that a contradiction? Reason much? This generation of young people are crazier than Woodstock &  I wasn't even born yet. No wonder extreme Muslims hate us & want to impose Sharia Law, shit like this doesn't happen In the Middle East besides the bombings or even Cuba. Blame Capitalism maybe? Though I'm not a socialist.
