And they didn't come to the conclusion that perhaps the % went up because more people are consuming cannabis? Doesn't prove that cannabis was the cause of these crashes. If the total # of fatal car crashes also went up that's the only way that arguement could have a leg to stand on. Otherwise duh of course the % of people with thc in their system went up because the % of the whole population using cannabis has gone up. It's not rocket science.

Scrappy-doo got it right. What if an equal number of drivers who weren't in fatal crashes were tested, would we find the use of cannabis has soared to 20% among them? What would that prove? Only the weak minded are persuaded by such statistical arguments.

After medical marijuana use was approved in Montana and Colorado, drunk driving accidents went down because more people chose to smoke pot instead.

Splatoid is on a distinguished road
I know for a fact how much more dangerous I was while drinking than when smoking pot. I cant say I have never been enough to not drive safely.I can remember an indecent where My bud turned me on to just one tiny hit and I thought stingy bastard. And got in my car and couldn't find third gear on my three speed Valiant.and got lost on the curve heading into town in the country on a road I drove on every day. But it was never as bad when I was drunk and i had to cover one eye to see only one car coming at me. And I still saw double.
But the stats that are thrown about are crap. Kaiser is making me take drug test's to be able to keep getting Oxy. I take about one every 3 days for about 7 years now. If they find marijuana in my system they cut me off. But drinking alcohol would be alright.Bastards!!!

How many people crash while high as opposed to wreck while dead sober? You probably shouldn't drive while on anything but those statistics on pot related crashes seem a bit stretched.

You should not be high and driving no matter what, but this study does little to make a case against pot. No idea how much thc in the people and the other drugs involved. Propaganda again. I will drive after the initial heavier buzz subsides, but even then rarely do. After an hour I am not very high no matter what I smoked.

For me pot does not make me less aware or mess with reactions but does tend to promote daydreaming which is not good, like focusing on something interesting I see rather than the road. Alcohol messes with reactions, coordination and causes a lack of fear, all bad news.

Doing concentrates and edibles is something else again. I could see a problem there.

How does the quote go? Is it: "Damn Lies and Statistics"?

How many of these crashes were from out of state drivers trying edibles for the first time? How many were in-state drivers trying edibles for the first time?

Prohibition ripples are freaking stupid. Stifling information is dangerous and has caused a huge backlash in society.
