Fatal accidents caused by drivers driving under the influence of cannabis (Gandia) have doubled after the decriminalization of the drug in Washington, revealed a study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.
Before decriminalization, accidents caused by such drivers were 8% and reached 17% just after the decriminalization.
CNN says that the leaders of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety feel that Washington authorities must open the eyes of other states seeking to decriminalize cannabis.
Studies have shown that the effects of cannabis on the behavior and the ability to conduct well vary from driver to driver, unlike alcohol.
This feature of cannabis makes it difficult to impose a consumption limit and tests as in the case of alcohol.
