Study Shows Stoned Driving Safer Than Drunk Driving

 

.............a new pair of studies by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicate that driving with marijuana in one's system is far safer than driving while drunk. After controlling for factors such as age and gender, there was essentially no increased risk to driving with marijuana in the bloodstream compared to driving sober. Conversely, drivers whose blood alcohol content was .08 (the legal limit) were four times as likely to get into an accident.

  4. Bill has got it right. As a former consumer of the wild wood flower in my youth I can say with near certainty that when I drove I would often wonder how I ended up at point B because I most certainly didnt remember where point A was. I remember 25 miles per hour felt like 125 mph. Im pretty sure stoned driving is just as dangerous as drunk driving. I havnt consumed the sweet leaf for 25 years now and have no interest in it. Dont drive drunk or stoned and the world will be safer.

  6. By all means, let's all get stoned! Is that what the NHTS is telling us? And just how much of our tax dollars are going there?
