Is Marijuana Legalization Leading to More Crashes?

Is Marijuana Legalization Leading to More Crashes?

California voters recently voted to legalize recreational marijuana use.

Does that mean that pot legalization is contributing to more car crashes in California?

Statistics for the Golden State aren’t available yet.

But if trends in other states are any indicator, the answer to this question could be a resounding yes in the coming months.

For instance, an insurance study found that after Colorado legalized marijuana, car accidents increased nearly 3%.

Time will tell if California will experience similar trends.

As a reminder, it is illegal to drive in California while under the influence of any drug, including marijuana.
