There has recently been a great deal of discussion about whether or not legalization of marijuana will cause people to engage in “drugged driving.” Forbes recently published an article in response to a misleading and reckless article by NBC, making the point that it is silly to say that an accident in which a driver is drug tested and found to have cannabinoids in his/her system was intoxicated, as they stay in the system for up to a week. If we want to find out what the impact of progressive marijuana reform is on driving deaths, we have data. A study in the Chicago Journal of Law and Economics shows that medical marijuana laws reduce the number of traffic fatalities, and that legalization will likely expand that effect even further.
