Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

No Scientific Basis for Laws on Marijuana and Driving

Pro-marijuana readers will read the title and think its a pro-marijuana article.

From Yahoo:

Studies show that using marijuana and driving roughly doubles the risk of a crash, Kleiman said. By comparison, talking on a hands-free cellphone while driving — legal in all states — quadruples crash risk, he said. A blood alcohol content of .12, which is about the median amount in drunken driving cases, increases crash risk by about 15 times, he said.

 Driving with “a noisy child in the back of the car” is about as dangerous as using marijuana and driving, Kleiman said.

So what if it’s a pot dealer talking on his mobile while drunk?  All 3 are already trendy with liberals aren’t they?  Bonus points if there are kids in the car and the drivers around him are all on drugs too!


The exception is when a driver has both been using marijuana and drinking alcohol because the two substances together greatly heighten impairment, he said.

The foundation also released a second study that found the share of drivers in fatal crashes who had recently used marijuana doubled in Washington after the state legalized it for recreational use in December 2012. From 2013 to 2014, the share of drivers who had recently used marijuana rose from 8 percent to 17 percent.

While it stopped short of blaming the crashes on that increase, AAA traffic safety director Jake Nelson said traffic fatalities went up 6 percent in Washington during that same while the fatalities nationally declined.
