Massdriver Posted October 19, 2018 Share Posted October 19, 2018 Quote The Highway Loss Data Institute study focused on collision claims between 2012 and October 2017, and compared against four control states where marijuana remains illegal: Idaho, Montana, Utah and Wyoming. A separate study conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety focused on police-reported crashes before and after retail marijuana was allowed found Colorado, Oregon and Washington saw a 5.2 percent increase in the rate of crashes per million vehicle registrations, compared with neighboring states. "States exploring legalizing marijuana should consider this effect on highway safety," said David Harkey, president of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and Highway Loss Data Institute, in a statement. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2018/10/19/car-crashes-up-states-legal-marijuana-studies-show/1693567002/ https://www.nj.com/marijuana/2018/10/car_crashes_rose_in_states_after_they_legalized_ma.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
