Younger Canadians making dangerous choices when it comes to cannabis and driving.

According to new research published by the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA), 1/4 of young Canadians, aged 18-34, say they have driven high or have travelled in a vehicle with a driver who was high.

The same research shows that 86% of young Canadians understand the importance of planning alternative travel arrangements after consuming alcohol, but only 70% think it’s a must to do so after consuming cannabis. In fact, 26% have driven after consuming cannabis or been in an automobile driven by someone who had recently consumed cannabis.

“The study’s findings regarding attitudes and perceptions tells us there is a need for more education,” says Jeff Walker, CAA chief strategy officer. “Cannabis may impair your driving differently than alcohol, but the effect is the same – decreased reaction times that can lead to collisions and even fatalities.”
