Proposition 215, passed in 1996, legalized medical marijuana in the state of California, and 28 other states. In order to legally buy medical marijuana, you need to be 18 years old, have a proof of residence, and have a recommendation from a doctor indicating that you have a symptom that can be treated with medical marijuana. However, as of January 1st 2018, California became one of the 39 states that legalized recreational marijuana. In light of this, another law was also passed that says if you drive high you will receive a DUI, just like alcohol. Thousands of people have died because of driving under the influence of alcohol and this brings up the question of how the legalization of marijuana will have an impact on people’s safety. Marijuana significantly impairs judgment, motor coordination, and reaction time. There are many signs on freeways and overpasses stating “drive high get a DUI” to emphasize the impact this newly legal drug has on drivers.
