Marijuana–Related Car Accidents
Virtually anyone of legal driving age understands that it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, but for some reason, many people do not understand how dangerous it is to drive after having smoked marijuana. Not only is marijuana illegal in the United States, but it can also be extremely dangerous for drivers to operate cars or commercial trucks under the influence of marijuana. Drivers who smoke marijuana or take any other illegal drug are putting innocent lives at risk and must be held accountable for the consequences of their actions.

Marijuana’s Effects on the Body
Many supporters of the legalization of marijuana claim that the drug has no impact on a user’s ability to drive or perform other tasks. However, marijuana does affect the brain and body in the following ways:
- Causes short-term memory loss
- Compromises one’s sense of time and distance
- Causes fatigue
- Slowed reaction times and an inability to concentrate
- Feelings of paranoia
There are countless instances in which the above-referenced list of adverse effects might result in an otherwise preventable traffic collision.
