Keep On Truckin'

According to a new study, smoking marijuana barely affects driving performance.

Researchers from Hartford Hospital in Connecticut and the University of Iowa had subjects toke up and then get behind the wheel of a driving simulator.

They found there were no differences between the performance of marijuana smokers and those who didn't have any weed. In fact, the only difference between the two groups was that the subjects who smoked were more likely to slow down during certain parts of the simulation -- possibly making them even safer.
