While the data since recreational legalization has yet to be published, analysis of crash fatalities, pre- and post- medical marijuana legalization, exposes a stark increase in the number of dead drivers testing marijuana-positive. While total crash fatalities have decreased 14.8% (2007-12), the share of marijuana-positive dead-drivers more than doubled. Nevertheless, a causal relationship cannot be drawn from these observations, alone.
