States that legalized recreational weed see increase in car accidents

Post by Pete » Wed Oct 24, 2018 7:37 am

(CNN)The National Transportation Safety Board said Tuesday that the probable cause of a crash that killed 12 people on a church bus near Concan, Texas, in March 2017 was that the 20-year-old man whose truck hit the bus was under the influence of marijuana and a sedative.

In its report, the board says that there has been an increase in the number of drug-impaired drivers across the country and that something must be done about it.

That call to action seems to match up with a report released Thursday from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Highway Loss Data Institute.

Legalizing marijuana here has been a serious mistake. It has drawn all sorts of people who stand on corners begging for money to go buy pot along with all the other problems that go along with having a population that is constantly high.
