Mitigating the Effects of Cannabis on Driving

There is every need to contain the use of cannabis among drivers because it is one of the leading causes of fatal road accidents. Research indicates that most drivers who have been involved in road accidents have a history of smoking Marijuana It is therefore incumbent upon every driver and indeed everyone to take necessary precautions in the use of cannabis. There are various forestalling measures which include sensitization among drivers, provision of treatment and rehabilitation to cannabis smokers and increasing social acceptance among addicts 

Talking about sensitization among the drivers, attempts should be made to inform drivers on the dangers of smoking while driving or smoking before driving. This will involve use of various provocative methods to pass information to the drivers. Such methods as the use of pictures of accident scenes can make drivers be more cautious when driving. Furthermore, the stakeholders can involve drivers who may have been involved in accidents related to the use of cannabis while driving. They will share their testimonies hence help in sensitization. Those who have recovered from the use of cannabis can also be involved, where they will share the methods they engaged to liberate themselves from the use of the drug. Sensitization entails the most economical and effective method at the same time, and should therefore be embraced and used widely. 

Health facilities should also be equipped with necessary infrastructure for provision of healthcare services as well as rehabilitation to cannabis smokers. There are certainly drivers who are cannabis addicts. They cannot manage to drive without taking an amount of cannabis. Worse still, this kind of drivers will walk with the drug with them to take whenever they develop an urge. This in turn increases the risk of causing accidents because they “take while driving – on the go.” It is therefore necessary to provide health services as well as monitored rehabilitation in order to help them successfully put to a stop the smoking habit and contain withdrawal symptoms. Although scientific studies indicate that tetrahydrocannabinol stays in the body of a cannabis smoker for quite long, recovered drivers shall have reduced the vulnerability to a larger percentage. 

It is also necessary to increase social acceptance among smoker drivers to alleviate depression related consequences. Depression and mood swing are primary effects of using cannabis. A depressed driver will most likely cause an accident almost on a daily basis. Creating a sense of acceptance among the drivers who smoke cannabis will not only help reduce mood swings, but also make them think otherwise in an attempt to stop smoking  

We understand that however much we can try to sensitize drivers on the dangers of smoking cannabis while driving, there is a percentage of the drivers who will always smoke and drive. Therefore, stakeholders can also establish mobile screening stations along the roads to catch up with reckless drivers who deliberately use cannabis. Once the drivers are held captive, a rehabilitative process will be initiated and therefore help mitigate cannabis related accidents. 

Unless the above discussed measures and more others are enacted we still have an obtrusive danger as far as cannabis related accidents are concerned.
