Study finds many medical marijuana users drive while high

Of the almost 800 of MI medical cannabis users surveyed, 51 percent admitted to driving while "a little high" and 21 percent said they had driven while "very high".

Some concerning news when it comes to driving under the influence: a new study from the University of MI finds that a significant number of people who use medical marijuana say they have driven while high.

Participants completed survey measures of DUIC (driving within 2 hours of use, driving while "a little high", and driving while "very high") and background factors (demographics, alcohol use, etc.).

790 adults seeking medical cannabis certification or recertification for moderate/severe pain were recruited from February 2014 through June 2015 at MI medical cannabis clinics.

The study involving 790 medical marijuana users in MI was taken before voters approved the use of recreational marijuana in the state this past November. Medical marijuana is now legal in more than 30 states. They were recruited at three different medical cannabis certification centers in MI. The researchers asked about respondents' driving habits for the past six months.

Bonar said more research needs to be done to establish guidelines about when it is safe to drive after using marijuana. "Or at least avoid driving for several hours after using marijuana".

The study is especially timely because MI voters last November approved the use of recreational marijuana, and in December 2018 it became legal under state law for any MI resident over the age of 21 to use marijuana inside a private residence and to grow up to 12 plants for personal use.
