Tokin' and Travelin'–New Studies on the Effects of Driving while High
Driving and getting high–keeping them separate keeps you safe in my opinion.
However, for people worried that legalization shouldn’t happen until there is a definitive way to tell if a driver is intoxicated on marijuana, new studies show that the effects of smoking pot don’t change the driving skills of most people.
“Investigators reported that volunteers performed virtually the same after smoking cannabis as they did sober and/or after consuming a placebo.”
In fact, stoned drivers preformed better than drivers who had consumed alcohol but were under the legal limit.
Speaking as someone who is on the road with you, I’d still rather you weren’t under the influence of alcohol or cannabis.
