Raleigh DWI Lawyer says Research Shows that Cannabis Consumption Not Enough to Prove Impairment

With many states becoming more lenient and legalizing medical use and even recreational use of cannabis, state lawmakers have been proposing changes to decriminalize its use. One major concern that both proponents and opponents share is the effect of cannabis on driver performance and traffic safety.

Medical experts recognize the cognitive and psychomotor effects of marijuana use, and that such use may present some risk in impairing a driver or deteriorating their driving performance. As a DWI lawyer, I would say the problem that both the scientific community and law enforcement agencies face is accurately measuring marijuana’s impact on a motorist’s driving ability.
