Does Marijuana have the same effect as alcohol when driving?
Absolutely not. Alcohol impairs the driver's mental capacity exponentially moreso than marijuana. Over half of the U.S. population admits to having used marijuana. I'm not sure how many of those people drove while high, but generally, less than 20 annual traffic fatalities can be attributed to marijuana intoxication (and other drugs are often a factor in those cases). Meanwhile DWI claims thousands of lives every year in the U.S. Alcohol is the most dangerous legal drug in America...I would make Oxycotin a close second.
No, as far as driving high goes. Driving completely blazed out of your mind is a completely different thing, but at the end of the day I would feel 100X more comfortable driving completely stoned than heavily buzzed.
