Teen drivers need crash course in cannabis laws

There may be need for a new chapter in the driver’s education handbook – a recently released study suggests many teens believe driving while high is actually legal.

A third of the 2,800 teens surveyed by Liberty Mutual Insurance and SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) said that driving under the influence of cannabis is legal in states with recreational marijuana legalization. Even more alarming, more than 20 percent of teens reported that driving under the influence was common among their friends.

Mom and dad could use a refresher course too — 27 percent of the 1,000 parents surveyed had the same notion as their kids that driving while high was NOT against the law.
