Marijuana Industry Joins CDOT’s Campaign To End Drugged Driving

DENVER (CBS4) – In 2016, Colorado saw 77 deadly wrecks involving drivers with active THC in their blood. With that concern in the front of their mind, the Colorado Department of Transportation teamed up with partners in the marijuana industry to launch a new campaign to end drugged driving. “The Cannabis Conversation” invites Coloradans to share their opinions, behaviors and habits regarding marijuana use and driving through an online survey. “The Cannabis Conversation is about hearing from many different voices on the topic of driving high and understanding how we can more effectively connect with people about the dangers of doing so,” said Sam Cole, Safety Communications Manager at CDOT. “We’ve been talking in this country for decades about drunk driving, but we aren’t having the same conversations about driving high.” CDOT has made efforts to end marijuana-impaired driving in the past, but they don’t believe they’ve made a large enough impact.
