A survey conducted by the Canadian Automobile Association says more than 60 per cent of Canadians are worried marijuana legalization will lead to more impaired driving.
The survey released by CAA, in partnership with the Alberta Motor Association also suggests nearly 60 percent of Albertans are also worried about high driving.
Jeff Kasbrick with AMA tells Global News prior to legalization, we need to get the conversation started on marijuana impaired driving.
“I think what Canadians should be aware is that marijuana has an impact on your ability to drive. So we need to be informed when we get behind the wheel that can sometimes be the riskiest activity that we can take in a day.”
According to the survey, only about 20 per cent Albertans believe police are equipped and prepared for the change in legislation. (bg/global)
