New Study: Cannabis Legalization Does Not Increase Traffic Accidents

"The results of the analysis suggest that there is no statistically [significant] relationship between marijuana legalization and fatal crashes."

June 5, 2019

A recent BuzzFeed poll asked Americans, “Which is a stronger argument against legalization?”

47-percent of respondents said “more people are driving under the influence”


But what does the research show?

Does cannabis legalization actually cause more traffic accidents?

The following study shows that this isn’t true. Kansas State University graduate student Andrew Young took a closer look at traffic fatalities over a span of 23 years. Young compared traffic fatality rates in states where cannabis legal and states where it is still heavily controlled. No concrete trends emerged.

The results of the analysis suggest that there is no statistically [significant] relationship between marijuana legalization and fatal crashes.

—Andrew Young

“The results of the analysis suggest that there is no statistically [significant] relationship between marijuana legalization and fatal crashes.” Young wrote. “These findings suggest that concerns of policymakers and the public that legalizing marijuana will worsen road safety are not entirely founded.”

The study is limited by the fact that recreational cannabis is legal in only a few states and it has only been that way for several years, so the sample size is too small to make any really concrete conclusions. But Young’s findings reflect the same conclusions of several previous studies, all of which have failed to identify a statistically meaningful link between legalization and road safety.


Absolutely a great dispensary. Team is always ready with a smile and patient to a fault with MMUR questions. This dispensary goes above and beyond in customer service and is always open to any issues you might have before or after product purchase. ...Between the rewards points you accumulate and the regular sales they have across all product lines, you will not go broke or sacrifice quality. ...Surterra should be a regular stop. And the Coral Reefer line is AMAZING!

Very friendly staff! They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. The team is very knowledgeable about all products and very helpful to find the right thing for you. Clean space and quick service.




Surterra is, by far, the best dispensary out of the 5 in my neighborhood. I need a high THC for pain relief, etc. and Surterra generally has some 30%+.  Their discounts and rewards program are the best in the area.  The budtenders and support staff are awesome.

Surterra has the best pre-rolls in my area of multiple dispensaries to choose from. They're not too tight & burn great. This is the place to get your pre-rolls folks!

The customer service and products I received are top notch. As a new patient they've taken the time to answer all my questions and ensure that I completely understand, not just make the sale and rush me out the door like other places. The daily sales and special discount offers make things very affordable...the attention I receive from the customer service reps will keep me coming back.

This is my absolute favorite dispensary. Daily deals, amazing customer service, and phenomenal products. Surterra has been coming out swinging with the recent new flower strains! They are by far the most efficient/fastest dispensary I've ever been to. 12/10, highly recommend.
