Accidents have increased since marijuana was legalized.

It has been a while since marijuana has been legalized in IL. Last week, the newspaper that is published in Chicago, IL, came out with a bold statement. States that have legalized cannabis have seen an increase in motor vehicle accidents related to cannabis use. Not only is it dangerous to drive while high or drunk, but it is illegal. Driving while using pot is considered DUI, which is the same as driving while intoxicated. Not only is it dangerous to the person using the pot, but it is dangerous to others. Just like with alcohol use, marijuana use can cause impairment and should not be consumed before or during the operation of a vehicle. The use of alcohol or marijuana should also be avoided when performing a task that has other risks; such as the use of heavy equipment or any type of sharp tools. I didn’t know if the area of Chicago, IL had seen any uptick in the amount of DUIs or vehicle accidents caused by marijuana, but it is something to look into. My son will soon be twenty-one, and if he hasn’t already tried marijuana, I’m sure he will soon. I know he is looking forward to going to the casino and having his first legal alcoholic drink. I can only pray he doesn’t get into the car and try to drive after using. Maybe I’ll cut out the article that talks about the problems that come with using marijuana and driving. I would hate to hear he was arrested for DUI, or something worse.
