In many countries of the world, the use of cannabis which is popularly known as marijuana is becoming more and more popular. One reason for this is due to the fact that it is becoming legal in many countries. In Ontario, Canada for example, the use of marijuana is now legal and many people use it in their everyday life. While this is acceptable by law, it is a totally different ball game when driving. The use of marijuana while driving can have disastrous consequences for you and other drivers on the road. It is no wonder that most police officers are increasingly concerned about driving around stoned. Here are some of the effects of driving under the effects of marijuana;

  • REACTION TIME IS SLOWER: one thing which is needed on the road is to the ability to make decisions fast and sharply. This could actually be the difference between driving safely and crashing into a car. Marijuana would make your reaction time to be slower than it should be on a normal basis. In other words, this means that decisions or situations which you would have seen and taken care off when sober would become difficult and hard to deal with. This would no doubt cause hazards on the road and make life difficult for other drivers who find themselves also trying to navigate the roads. In the worse possible scenario, you could actually die from an accident caused by your slow reaction time.
  • REDUCED CONCENTRATION: there is no doubt that driving on the road requires a high amount of focus in order to ensure that you drive safely at all times. The elements which make up a large portion of marijuana which is popularly known as THC is known to have the ability to alter the minds of both of its users. It also has the ability to reduce the concentration levels of the individuals who take cannabis. Therefore, taking it just before hitting the road would potentially increase your chances of having a crash with your car. This would also increase the chances of other innocent people using the road getting injured due to your lack of concentration.
  • IT WORKS IN OPPOSITION TO DRIVING SKILLS: everything which you ever learnt in a driving is being opposed by the use of marijuana while driving. It reduces your eye to hand coordination, reduces your consciousness of the speed level of your car, and reduces your concentration and so much more. It is therefore not advisable that you keep on driving just after taking marijuana or while you are still under the influence of the drug. It would be terrifying to even imagine.

One thing which is crucial when driving is keeping it at the back of our minds that driving is a serious issue. When you get on the road, you put other people’s lives at risk including yours. Doing anything which would reduce your ability to drive safely would be fatal to you and any other person on the road at that time.
