An internet-based poll on behalf of the Canadian Automobile Association found 26% of Canadians between 18 and 34 had either driven while high, or had been passengers in the vehicle of a stoned driver.
- While 86% of respondents said it was important to change travel arrangements after drinking, only 70% felt it was necessary to avoid driving after consuming cannabis, and 15% said they believed cannabis had either no effect or improved drivers’ abilities.
