It is illegal in Arizona to operate a motor vehicle with a BAC of .08% or higher. Most people know that they risk getting arrested and may be a danger to others on the road if they drive drunk. But what about driving after using marijuana?
There are laws and charges for driving under the influence of marijuana, but recent reports indicate that there is a lack of information on how much marijuana actually influences driving ability. Researchers with various organizations, including the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, are conducting studies to further investigate the affects of marijuana and driving under its influence. Results from these and other studies could ultimately encourage changes to laws concerning marijuana use and driving.
