According to a new study, smoking marijuana barely affects driving performance.

Researchers from Hartford Hospital in Connecticut and the University of Iowa had subjects toke up and then get behind the wheel of a driving simulator. Find out more by clicking on the stoners below.

They found there were no differences between the performance of marijuana smokers and those who didn’t have any weed. In fact, the only difference between the two groups was that the subjects who smoked were more likely to slow down during certain parts of the simulation¬†— possibly making them even safer.

  1. I can’t speak for anyone else but, my personal opinion (and experience)has been that I will never smoke and get in the car and drive around the block much less any distance! Many years ago I came to the conclusion that I can’t do that. My first clue… while driving around town I came up to a stop sign, I stopped, then proceeded to sit there waiting for it to turn green!! Fortunately no one was witness to this. My second clue… pulled up to a two-way stop, looked one way then the other way and saw a car coming towards me, so of course I waited to continue through the intersection until this car had gone past. Problem was, my perception of distance and speed (among other things) was completely whacked out. Twenty cars could have pulled up, stopped, looked and then proceeded through that intersection before that car came close enough to be a danger.
    After that, I, myself made the conscious, not to mention responsible, decision to never drive and smoke!! When someone asks me if I want a hit I tell them, “No I can’t, I’m driving, but thanks anyway!”
    P.S. You don’t even want to know what happened with the red traffic signal!
