LOS ANGELES (CBS) The number of people driving high on marijuana is rising. Now, there’s a new effort to warn drivers about the dangers.
Ron Edwards was riding his motorcycle four years ago when a driver ran a red light and killed him. Police say the driver of the car had marijuana in his system.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s most recent survey found between 2007 and 2013 there was a 48 percent increase in weekend nighttime drivers who tested positive for cannabis.
Since the survey, several states have legalized marijuana for medicinal or recreational use.
