Who Drives Better: Drunks or Stoners?
Headline of the day is brought to you by the fine folks at Popular Science. And yes, this was an actual study, conducted by real scientist.
The students were tested for physiological strain and driving performance as they drove through rural communities and desert scenes, and past roadblocks and pedestrians. One group smoked low and high doses of THC. Another downed vodka and "orange drink" cocktails to reach Israel's legal limit of .05 percent blood alcohol content. Others took a placebo.
