Teens Driving High. Is the Problem Getting Worse?

The results of a new study found that 19% of teenagers in the United States admit to driving a car under the influence of marijuana. That is higher than the 13% of teens who admit to driving under the influence of alcohol, according to SADD.

Adding to this concern is that 36% of teens believe that marijuana use has no effect on their driving skills and data indicates that marijuana use among high school seniors is at its highest level in decades. Unfortunately, the problem seems to be getting worse not better. In 2009, more teens were able to identify the risks of usinig marijuana and driving.

Our Pennsylvania accident and injury lawyers are concerned about this trend and about the children in this state. What do you think should be done to educate teens about the dangers of using marijuana and driving?
