Risk Factors for Driving After and During Marijuana Use

Marijuana is the most commonly used drug other than alcohol in the United States, and rates of driving under the influence of marijuana are high. The authors draw on social learning theory to examine marijuana outcome expectancies and other driving-related cognitions as predictors of the frequency of driving after smoking marijuana (DASM) and smoking marijuana while driving (SMWD). Their study reveals a lower frequency of DASM and SMWD to be associated with perceived driving-related peer norms and a lower frequency of DASM associated with a perceived dangerousness of DASM.
