For some reason I think they need to use a few more test subjects. I've seen people high on that stuff and some of them couldn't even find their mouth to stick the joint in... so yeah... I'm not 100% convinced of the validity of this study.
Study: Pot Has "Little Effect" on Driving Skills-
Just the Facts:
A new study finds that marijuana has little effect on simulated driving skills.
It did find that drivers were more easily distracted when under the influence.
Researchers studied the driving performance of 85 people, using marijuana supplied by the National Institute of Drug Abuse and the University of Mississippi.
HARTFORD, Connecticut Marijuana has little effect on driving skills, according to a new study by Hartford Hospital and the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. Researchers hasten to add that this does not imply that it's safe to drive under the influence of the drug.
But they described the study results as "surprising," in a statement released by the hospital. The study has wide-ranging implications, especially in an era when the federal government has launched a massive crackdown on distracted driving.
Researchers studied the driving performance of 85 people, using marijuana supplied by the National Institute of Drug Abuse and the University of Mississippi, which they describe as "the only legal source of cannabis in the United States."
