Study Says Driving Stoned "Might Make You A Better Driver"

You heard it here first folks. A new study, by a national quote provider for online car insurance quotes no less, says that 'driving while stoned' isn't really dangerous.

The study, which looks at statistics regarding accidents, points out that the only significant effect that marijuana has on operating a motor vehicle is slower driving, which they say “is arguably a positive thing” and that driving under the influence of marijuana “might even make you a safer driver.”

I'm going to skip the commentary on this one and send you right to the article that tells about the study.
