OCTOBER 17 is just around the corner. Cannabis will be legal (and the province expects a hit from the first orders, predicted to come as a huge wave as many want to make history by ordering as soon as cannabis becomes legal) and many others are bracing for what the legalization brings about.
There are multiple studies that arrived at the same conclusion: a certain concentration of the active substance, delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC,) is associated with driving impairment, more so, one study said, in occasional drivers. Some of the effects of cannabis use include lethargy and cognitive disfunctions, and delayed reactions. Not a great picture as far as driving is concerned.
When combined with alcohol, the effects are increased and that means an increased risk for drivers and all other people on the road, drivers and pedestrians alike.
