Drugged driving on the rise

Do medicines make us better or worse? The latest rising numbers is not in drunk drivers but rather in drugged drivers as more and more drivers test positive for prescription drugs, cannabis, and multiple drugs. In fact, the percentage of drugged drivers with three or more drugs in their system has nearly doubled in less than 20 years, increasing from 11.5 percent to 21.5 percent. Today, close to 1 in 5 drivers are on multiple drugs. The only thing that can make this worse is that there is a scary uptick in people using drugs and alcohol together. Some 70% percent of alcohol-influenced drivers also now test positive for drugs and 55% of alcohol-influenced drivers now test positive for cannabis also. Here is a disturbing fact: 90% of people over the age of 65 are now on prescription drugs. DUI has a very different meaning these days from when I was a kid…
