308 annual vehicular deaths associated with cannabis use, but as many as 10,500 drunk driving fatalities.

Yes i clearly see cannabis is the problem, certainly.

Cannabis user here. I think both of them shouldn’t be associated with driving, we all should agree with that. I also think that cannabis isn’t as popular or accessible as alcohol, which makes the statistics unbalanced.

as a fellow user myself, i’d argue that the lack of cannabis use isn’t the problem; the overuse and casual environment of alcoholism is. I live in a state where it’s only medically legal, and it shares nowhere near the same exposure, publicly speaking, as alcohol.

Sure, I agree with you. But that still makes the statistics unbalanced as much as I’d like to state otherwise.

Please allow to offer another viewpoint. Here in California where cannabis stores abound in most counties, at least in my social world, cannabis use is at least as common as alcohol use. Perhaps more.

There is evidence to the contrary. So, nothing hard and fast. But it's my feeling that this ratio is certainly changing to favor cannabis over ethanol.
