The line is fairly clear when it comes to alcohol and getting behind the wheel: Don't drink and drive. But what about using marijuana?
According to a survey by AAA, the Auto Club Group, roughly 14.8 million Americans reported driving within an hour of using marijuana within the last 30 days.
"Drivers who get behind the wheel while impaired put themselves and others at risk," Mark Jenkins, AAA spokesperson, said. "AAA recommends all motorists avoid driving while impaired by marijuana or any other drug (including alcohol) to keep the roads safe."
The age bracket most likely to report that they drove within an hour of using marijuana was millennials (14 percent), AAA said, followed by Generation Z (10 percent). About 7 percent of Americans surveyed said they approve of driving after using marijuana shortly before.
