With the legalization of marijuana just months away, information on the impact of driving while high is being placed as a priority.
The Canadian Public Health Association has re-launched its pot and driving campaign to shed light on the dangers of cannabis-impaired driving and the current legislation.
Ian Culbert, Executive Director, at the Canadian Public Health Association says, research shows Canadian youth do not associate any risks with using marijuana.
They have some pretty concerning beliefs about the effect of cannabis on their driving; such as, it didn’t have any effect, or possibly it made them a better driver.
The Canadian Public Health Association pot and driving campaign will provide facts and resources to parents, health and social providers and educators to address this topic with youth.
