Use hands-on learning to illustrate the dangers of combined alcohol and marijuana impairment.
In the United States, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among young adults. Alcohol and marijuana are the two most common drugs found in the blood of drivers who are involved in crashes—including teenage drivers.
Consuming multiple drugs such as marijuana (also known as cannabis) and alcohol at the same time — also known as polydrug use — has been shown to significantly impair driving abilities. While driving under the influence of cannabis can result in slower reaction times, decreased coordination, and lane weaving, polydrug use of alcohol and marijuana amplifies these effects.
Unfortunately, alcohol and marijuana impairment while driving is a grave issue, especially among younger drivers. Therefore, it’s essential to make teenagers aware of the dangers of polydrug use and the impact this use can have on their driving through experience.
