While marijuana is an illegal drug regardless, some individuals still smoke it and then drive their cars. Driving under the influence of marijuana, however, can be dangerous because it impairs a driver's ability to operate a vehicle.
The impairment is largely due to the fact that marijuana not only sedates users but also causes them to lose control of their limbs. Individuals who use marijuana and are injured in accidents often face serious criminal penalties, as well as significant civil cases.
