This chapter summarizes the current state of peer-reviewed research on acute marijuana effects on both actual and simulated driving. Most research on the connection between marijuana use and driving may be divided into three major classes of studies that occasionally overlap. These classes are: (1) post-hoc epidemiological surveys examining the extent to which prior marijuana use predicted collision-related injuries; (2) simulated driving studies; and (3) studies of actual on-road driving. While several reviews of the existing literature have drawn comparable conclusions, the available peer-reviewed literature has been marked by several inconsistencies in the methods used and samples recruited. The chapter will focus on identifying the strengths and limitations of the procedural approaches within this area of research. It presents a seven-step plan for improving research on marijuana and driving, and for clarifying the likelihood and nature of marijuana-induced impairment.
