A third of teens think smoking marijuana and driving is legal, according to a new study.
Out of 2,800 teens surveyed, 33% said driving under the influence of marijuana is legal in states where it’s recreational. More than 20% of teens reported it’s common among their friends. Parent perceptions (1,000 were surveyed) were similar: 27% said it’s legal and 14% said it’s common among friends.
While survey data showed 88% of teens think driving under the influence of alcohol is dangerous, just 68% said driving under the influence of marijuana is dangerous.
