What Can You Do About Teens Smoking Marijuana and Driving? [POLL]
Jim asked the question of the listeners this morning to see if anyone has a solution to the growing epidemic of teens driving while smoking marijuana.
A recent survey by the Monitoring the Future project finds that 28 percent of high school seniors admit riding in a car with a driver who had used drugs or alcohol or driving the car after using drugs or alcohol themselves. Driving after marijuana use was up from 10 percent in 2008 to 12 percent in 2011.
most students think they are less likely to get caught smoking marijuana then if they were drinking. While we know it’s a problem, what can we do about it? With so much talk and efforts surrounding medical marijuana and the decriminalization of marijuana, how do you go about educating teens not to smoke, especially before or while behind the wheel of a car? Is there even a quick way to catch them if they were smoking pot while driving?
