AAA study: Drivers who use both marijuana and alcohol are the riskiest on the road

The marijuana holiday 4/20 has come and gone, but the fact remains that people who use alcohol and pot are the riskiest drivers, even if the drivers consume the two separately.

Motorists who consume both cannabis and alcohol are more likely to speed, text, run red lights and drive more aggressively, according to new research conducted by the American Automobile Association.

Colorado was one of the earlier states to legalize both the medical and recreational use of marijuana.

Weed sales alone in 2020 reached $2.2 billion, spiking in December. This amount brings the sum of total cannabis sales to almost $10 billion since recreational marijuana was legalized.

Skyler McKinley, regional director of public affairs for AAA, said in a news release that Colorado residents have been mindful of marijuana use and driving.
