According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 11.8 million people aged 16 and older drove under the influence of illicit drugs in 2016. This survey also found that men and young adults aged 18 to 25 are more likely than women to drive when under the influence. After alcohol, marijuana is the most common drug found in the blood of drivers involved in crashes. Studies have shown that drivers with THC in their blood were roughly twice as likely to be responsible for a deadly crash or killed than drivers who hadn’t used drugs or alcohol.
