Submission + - Stoned Behind the Wheel: Driving Under the Influence of Pot Dr. Mohammad Speaks (marketwire.com) 1

maliburobert writes: Dr. Mohammad said, "In light of the recent changes in Marijuana-related law we are seeing across the United States, we seem to be moving in the wrong direction on several levels. Regardless of whether or not Marijuana is legal to purchase and consume, it is still a heavily addictive substance that poses significant threats to those who use it." Mohammad added, "While there are a multitude of health risks for Marijuana users, new research is surfacing that should terrify everyone, especially drivers. Marijuana use nearly doubles the chance of vehicular crashes, which is a horrific statistic considering the fact that global Marijuana use is dramatically rising. Lest we not forget the painful lessons we've learned from alcohol abuse and the massive toll it takes on innocent lives; just because Marijuana is becoming more acceptable, does not mean it is safe to operate vehicles under the influence."
