Study: Pot use has 'little effect' on driving skills

A Connecticut hospital used a driving simulator to test people who had just smoked marijuana and found using the drug had "little effect" on their skills, the Hartford Courant reports. The researchers do NOT say it's a good idea to smoke the drug and drive, though. Their subjects were much more likely to get distracted, which is a leading factor in wrecks. The story notes that NHTSA says pot use diminishes driving skills.
