Car Crashes Rise in States Where Recreational Marijuana Has Been Legalized

Bloomberg  Government “Car crashes in the first three states to legalize recreational marijuana have soared as law enforcement and regulators struggle to define driving high, let alone determine how to fight it.” Colorado, Oregon, and Washington “saw a combined 5.2% increase in the rate of police-reported crashes after legalizing recreational marijuana, compared with neighboring states where such sales are illegal, according to data compiled and analyzed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.” According to Bloomberg Government, “Factors such as potency, how often someone consumes, and whether marijuana is consumed through an edible, oil, or smoke can affect driving, said Erin Sauber-Schatz, a transportation safety team leader at the Centers for Disease Control. ‘It’s like we’re missing the right marker in order to identify impairment,’ said Kyle Clark of the International Association of Chiefs of Police.”
