Marijuana is legal in California for recreational use, but how will that impact the number of traffic accidents in the state. According to one study, legalization of marijuana will increase traffic accidents. However, another study does not indicate that recreational marijuana will impact traffic crashes.
A deadly crash last week claimed the life of one person in Madera Ranchos. The traffic accident was caused by a driver running a stop sign and colliding with another vehicle according to a report by ABC30 News. The driver of an SUV ignored a stop sign before colliding with another vehicle that was stopped at the intersection. The driver of the other vehicle was killed in the collision. According to the report, the driver of the SUV that caused the accident was transported to the hospital and arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana. The driver faces multiple charges related to the accident.
