A recent survey by Liberty Mutual Insurance and Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) revealed some unexpected information about people's perceptions of driving under the influence of marijuana. Fully one third of teen surveyed said they thought driving while high was legal in states where marijuana itself is legal for recreational use. Remarkably, 27 percent of parents surveyed thought the same thing.
Perhaps even more troubling, while 88 percent of the teens knew that driving drunk was dangerous, only 68 percent thought the same of driving high. And, over 20 percent said driving under the influence of marijuana is common among their friends.
