OPPORTUNITIES FOR COMMUNICATION EXIST AROUND BOTH DRUNK DRIVING AND DRIVING HIGH M ore than 1 in 4 (27%) U.S. adults recall a friend or family member driving within two hours of consuming alcohol sometime within the past
Given that U.S. adults are more likely to recall someone close to them driving under the influence of alcohol than of marijuana, it comes as little surprise that conversations about drunk driving are happening more often as well. Parents and grandparents were asked how frequently they discuss the potential consequences of driving after recently consuming both alcohol and marijuana. Three in 10 (31%) report discussing the consequences of driving under the influence of alcohol “often.” Fewer – just 1 in 5 (19%) – say the same of marijuana. In fact, more than 4 in 10 (43%) parents and grandparents report “never” broaching the subject of driving high with the next generation (Figure 1.6).
three months. About half as many (13%) say the same of marijuana. These figures are largely consistent among both men and women, and across most age groups.
