Legal Pot Increases Car Accidents (DUH!)

Timothy Birdnow

Legalization of Marijuana may reduce pain, and as such can be substituted for opiods, but they increase car accidents and other forms of injury.

From Medical Express:

The researchers found that after legalization, Colorado experienced a 10 percent increase in motor vehicle accidents, as well as a 5 percent increase in alcohol abuse and overdoses that resulted in injury or death. At the same time, the state saw a 5 percent decrease in hospital admissions for chronic pain, Marcus said.

Gee; whoda thunk it? An intoxicating substance increases car accidents, injuries, and overall substance abuse!

The interesting thing is that the Progressives have been waging a war against opium-based painkillers at the same time they have been trying to legalize Cannabis. Far fewer people abuse opioids than abuse Marijuana.

It amazes me how thick so many people on the Left can be.
