The notion that “it’s OK to drive drugged” is alarmingly widespread. The simple truth is that it’s never OK to drive drugged-even if the drugs are legal. After all, alcohol is legal and yet we have harsh drunk driving sanctions in all fifty states. Just because prescription drugs ARE legal and marijuana is legal in some states doesn’t mean they don’t impair a person’s ability to drive. Quite the contrary: innocent lives are lost every day as a result of crimes committed by drivers high on legal drugs.

At any given time, there are 660,000 vehicles being driven by someone using a handheld device. These people are three times more likely to get into a crash. Are our smart devices making us dumb drivers?
Drugged driving is the new drunk driving: It’s just as serious and just as deadly. So why don’t our attitudes reflect this?
Even with tougher laws, drunk drivers still kill 30 people every single day in America. About one-third of these drunk drivers are repeat offenders. How can we protect ourselves and our loved ones from these serial perpetrators?
