A new study of drivers in Washington State shows that nearly half of drivers have smoked up before getting behind the wheel of their car.


Here are the other highlights of the survey conducted by the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation:

  • 69.3% said they’d tried marijuana at some point in their lives
  • 61.9% believed marijuana use had no effect on their driving
  • 24.7% believed marijuana use made them better drivers; while only 3.1% admitted it reduced their driving ability
  • 44.1% said at that some point in last year they’d used pot within two hours of driving; and

  1. Hi Victoria,

    Soon to be exported to Oregon from smoggy, hazy Washington – cough, cough, cough.

    Expanded use of energy necessary in the State of Oregon for the production of marijuana. Well, probably OK given all those aesthetic and “highly efficient” wind turbines in the Columbia Gorge??

    Expanded release of CO2 into the atmosphere from “legalized” smoking of marijuana. Well, marijuana is not “legitimately” a fossil fuel since it hasn’t been buried yet??! I guess that warrants the environmental community’s stoned silence? And certainly given Democrat domination of the state absolutely it doesn’t warrant the left’s concern over any potentially onerous economic externalities because of its use (unlike automobiles)???

    And we can hope that all those large birds of prey who meet their demise as a direct result of wind turbines will at least be “high” enough to feel no pain. So then the left can certainly revel in the belief that those majestic birds will no longer emit all their “toxic” CO2 in the State of Oregon.

    By the way, didn’t the State of Oregon recently commit to a smaller carbon foot print? All seems somehow to make perfect sense????
