WHERE HAVE ALL THE DRUNK DRIVERS GONE-TO POT

Driving under the influence of marijuana can cause the driver to think that he’s only doing 40 miles an hour when in fact he is doing 80 or 90.

Marijuana intoxication may cause important time reaction delays; inability to brake quickly; impairment of night driving abilities; a marked increase in the time needed to recover from glare; difficulty in backing, turning around, passing, getting on or off roads.

Impairments caused by pot plus alcohol are more than additive. One drug serves to fire up the other. Thus one plus one equals three or four on the impairment scale
