In Canada, Young Adults More Likely To Smoke Pot And Drive Than Drink And Drive

From "Young adults more likely to smoke pot than drink before driving" on ScienceBlog:
"More young adults are reporting that they drive within an hour of using cannabis – even more than those who report drinking and driving," says Dr. Robert Mann, CAMH [Centre for Addiction and Mental Health] Senior Scientist and lead researcher. "Yet the risks of doing so are significant." Nine per cent of 18- to 29-year-olds report driving after cannabis use, versus six per cent in this age range who report drinking two or more drinks and driving.
