The Automobile Club of Southern California recently came out in opposition to California’s recreational marijuana legalization measure, Prop 64, and on Wednesday held a ‘Drugged Driver Summit’ to address some of the concerns about and potential impacts of driving under the influence of marijuana.

What do we know about collisions in states that have already legalized recreational marijuana? Is there evidence to support the claim that legal recreational marijuana would lead to an increase in high driving?

Guests: 

Jeff Spring, spokesman with the Auto Club of Southern California

David Bearman, M.D., vice president of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine and former director of the Sutter County (CA) Health Department, vice president of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine and former director of the Sutter County (CA) Health Department
